This week, Year 4 took part in a very enthusiastic Easter egg hunt on Monday and spent this week focusing on the Resurrection story according to Mark as well as post Resurrection stories such as The Road to Emmaus or Doubting Thomas. The children painted beautiful water -colour pictures inspired by these wonderful Gospel stories to capture the meaning and importance of Our Lord’s Resurrection.
On Tuesday and Thursday, the children refreshed their knowledge of basic tennis skills in preparation for next week, when they will have the privilege to work with Mr Mills who will teach tennis in the remaining weeks of this term.
This week the children have spent time on their D&T project – the bedside lamp, during which they have finalised their structures, attached all added features, as well as painting their models. Next week, they will be assembling their circuits with switches to complete their lamp.
The children looked at programming in ICT and with Scratch programming language, they learnt how to create a programme to draw various 2 D shapes.
In English, the children have read two traditional tales to launch our whole school writing project based on farms. The class are very much looking forward to next week’s farm visit on Tuesday.
The children have also continued to complete their daily mile as well, where they are improving greatly with regards to the number of laps achieved. Well done!
We wish Max a speedy recovery and hope to see him back in class soon!
Have a lovely weekend,
Ms Varga and Mrs McNamara

|Research Project||In preparation for next Tuesday’s farm visit, I would like you to create a learning poster where you explain how to look after animals. They don’t need to necessarily be farm animals but animals in general, including house pets.
Think about their diet, a safe ‘home’, tending to their physical needs (fur, teeth, nails, etc.)
Here are a few links to start you off:
