The children in Year 4 this week, focused on description and sentence structure when writing a wanted poster for our main character Starjik, from our book Ice Palace. In Maths, they finished their geometry unit by describing properties of common 2D shapes, commenting on parallel and perpendicular lines, as well as, angles.
In Science, they investigated gases this time answering 3 questions about them. Do they have weight? What happens to gases when we heat them? Can they be made by adding solids and liquids? Great discussion and accurate conclusions drawn.
In Computing, they looked at websites and gained understanding of their features and types of content shared on them. They then used Chrome Music Lab to create their own content.
As part of Fair Trade Fortnight, the class first watched a presentation about Fair Trade, the organisation, the need behind it and the ways in which the charity helps. After that, they watched a video about a farming community in Sierra Leoni, who took on the Forest Friendly Farming Initiative to raise the profile of their cocoa bean farm and to create safe and fair conditions to work in.
On Tuesday, Fr Shaun and Fr Robert came to our school to lead us into receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation. This is an important step we take during Lent, our Pilgrimage towards God. The children displayed a very reverent and mature attitude during the service.
As part of World Book Day on Thursday, we joined hundreds of schools online to partake in the BBC’s Live Literacy lesson, where the class thought about clues to identify genre, whilst also using familiar stories to re-think with a twist.
As we are approaching National Science Week, please may I ask that if we have any parents who use Science in their work and would be willing to talk about that for a few minutes with the children, they let me or Mrs Carrey (our Science lead) know so we can timetable a talk in class. It would be very much appreciated.
Have a lovely weekend,
