Welcome to Class 4 -Mrs P France
Welcome to Class 4 and our superstar children! We hope to share our fabulous work with you and show you our learning in class. We hope you enjoy and will keep you updated!
Classes 2, 3 and 4 had an exciting visitor to launch our new topic all about Explorers!
Christopher Columbus had lots of exciting things to tell us.
We got the chance to taste some of the delicious fruits that Christopher Columbus brought back from his voyages. We discussed the smell, look, feel and taste of pineapples, papaya, avocado and tomatoes.
In class this afternoon we tried out our paper folding skills to make a sailing boat. We impressed Mrs France with our listening and concentration and were all successful. Then we pretended that our desks were the sea and spent a few exciting minutes racing them using only the wind as power. Christopher Columbus would only have had the power of the wind when he sailed to the New World.
Our Fantastic Paper Boats
Classes 2, 3 and 4 have impressed parents this morning with their performance of 'A Midwife Crisis.' Well done to all involved.
Well done to all the superstars in class 4 for a fantastic contribution to our KS1 nativity this morning. We're looking forward to another brilliant performance tomorrow afternoon.
Don't forget that it's Christmas Dinner tomorrow!
For those of you who have been worrying about homework, the good news is that I didn't set you any over half term. I will be setting a new homework sheet and new spellings on Friday. This week we will be revising some of our spellings from last term in our spelling lessons.
In science we have started an investigation into how exercise changes our heart rate. Today we learned how to make a prediction. Some of us thought that exercise would make our hearts beat slower, some of us thought it would stay the same, but most of us thought that it would make our heart beat faster. tomorrow we are going to carry out a fair test to see which of us are correct!
We have really enjoyed carrying out our investigation and keeping a record of our results. Our conclusion was that our hearts do beat faster the more exercise that we do.
Having fun with our science investigation.
Art in the style of Roy Lichtenstein
This week we have been finding out all about Pop Art. Yesterday we copied the work of Andy Warhol and today we have been studying and copying the work of Roy Lichtenstein. Lichtenstein used dots and stripes of colour to make his art work look like a cartoon so we have tried to do the same.
