Although, it has been only a short week, children were very busy in Year 4. On Tuesday, we made model houses to support our descriptive writing based on the book, The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig. Thank you so much to all of you Parents, who sent in beautiful flowers to help us with this project. In the afternoon, Mr Mills braved the rain out and led a fantastic tennis session, where we started focusing on different stroke types, such as backhand and forehand.
On Wednesday, we looked at Science in the news and used iPads to research Perseverance and Curiosity, the 2 most recent Mars missions. Children were fascinated by the facts they found on Nasa’s website about the rovers and we had great discussions about the possibility of future life on the Red Planet.
On Friday, children participated in a beautiful May Procession and completed learning about Mary. They also carried on with programming and followed on form last week’s Ten Ten module.
Have a lovely weekend,
Ms Varga and Mrs McNamara
