In English, this week, the children started their second unit, a Roman myth. They used a picture book to get into character and introduce themselves in the role of their chosen Roman God or Goddess, thinking about voice, intonation, actions and gestures. They used their understanding later, when writing school reports about their characters.
In Maths, the class spent time consolidating rounding whole numbers to the nearest ten, hundred and thousand using rounding mountains and numberlines, identifying key benchmark numbers.
In PE, we further developed our passing and catching skills as well as understanding key roles such as defender and attacker in small games.
In Science, ther children used zip lock bags to model the stomach and observed its function first hand. They later also spent time reconstructing the human digestive system with focus on specific organs and their function.
In Art, we carried on in our unit of pattern making and developed rules to create pencil drawings, focusing on lines and the effect they make on the viewer.
In RE, we recapped our earlier learning of the life of St Vincent de Paul before linking his values with things we can do in our own lives to follow his teachings.
Our focus country during One World Week, will be the Philippines in Year 4. Please, if you have photos, relevant books, recipes, clothing, music or artefacts that could support our learning, could you let me know and I will arrange a date when the children could bring these in. Thank you for your support with this.
