Thank you to our newest member of staff for making us an interactive area to help us with our knowledge about ‘The Water Cycle’.

   It has already been put to good use.

Our new class book, Blue John, has been a real hit this week.  I am really impressed with the children’s enthusiasm and they have produced some brilliant writing this week.  They have used the class resources well to improve their writing.  Keep it up Elephants.

Elephants are still enjoying the times tables songs we have been working.  You can practice them at home by logging on to BBC Super Movers.  A fun way to learn your times tables.

In Science today we experimented with ways to make sound travel over a distance.  We made our own telephones to see if we could hear each other from far away.

Bustin’ some moves to the 11 times tables!

I was impressed to see that some of the children, when choosing their own activities, wanted to keep practicing their times tables!

We had a special treat on the last day of term.  Mrs Myles brought her tennis equipment and we all managed a mini game of tennis.  I was really impressed with the kills in Elephants class, even the ones who were reluctant to start with!

Keep practicing your times tables.  Check out BBC Supermovers at home to learn the dances and your times tables!!!

This week we have been focusing on our times tables.  Elephants have enjoyed moving to the 6 and 9 times tables BBC Super Movers dances.

In Science we have been exploring sound.  The children have learned about vibrations and sound waves.  In today’s lesson we made our own pan pipes to learn about high and low pitch.

Thank you for the visit today teaching the children about Christingles.  The children loved singing and especially eating!!

We have been using templates to cut out dragonflies for our art work.

This afternoon we have completed some more art work in the style of Kandinsky.  Keep an eye out for the displays around school.  They are amazing.

 

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________

We’ve had a fantastic time during Art week.  It has been amazing to have visitors from the other KS2 children.

I am really pleased with what the children have produced.  They should be really proud of themselves.

Elephants have really enjoyed a creative afternoon after a busy week.  We have finished our Iron Man topic by making models of Iron Man.  The children have worked in small groups and created some amazing models.

Well done Maisie

I hope those of you who are coming to Robin Wood are all packed and ready for Robin Wood tomorrow.  Get a good night’s sleep tonight!!!!

We have visited the outdoor area to put out our bug hotels.  We will keep an eye on them to see if we have any residents.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________

With Remembrance Sunday approaching, we have spent some time learning about the significance of poppies.  The children have made some contributions to a school display in the hall.  I was particularly impressed with some of the poetry that the children created.  Well done Elephants.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________

We have started our new topic about the Romans.  The children have been really keen to learn more about them and have come up with lots of ideas about what they would like to find out about.

Today we spent some time looking at non-fiction books in English, looking for the features needed to write our own.  It was so pleasing to see their excitement when they were discovering new facts as well as finding familiar facts.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Homework over the holidays is to make a bug hotel.  I can’t wait to see what the children come up with!!

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________

We had a fantastic trip to Heptonstall Museum yesterday.  The children made their own coins and they thoroughly enjoyed the graveyard, especially when they found familiar names and possible ancestry to one of our own children.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________

It was amazing to see so many scary faces at the Halloween Disco last night.  Thank you to those who looked after my daughter.  I hope you all had as good a time as she did.

Elephants have been learning a French song about fruits ready for Harvest Festival.  Please practice at home.  They all have a copy of the words and the song can be found on youtube if you search for French songs about fruit.

 

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Year 4 have been in the woodland area searching for invertebrates.  We found some bug hotels and took a peek to see if anything was living inside.

N.B. Last year’s Year 4 pupils made these bug hotels. I hope they are still intact and home to some residents! Mr Battye. 🙂

Elephant class have learned a new French song.  Ask them to sing it for you at home!!

The Y4 children have been working hard on their addition skills.  They have enjoyed using place value counters to explore exchanging.

YSP Visit

The children had a brilliant day at YSP.  They sketched their favourite sculptures, looked out for familiar animals to catagorise, and collected resources to make their own Iron Man sculptures.

Year 4 French.  So far we have learned numbers to 20 and have had lots of fun today learning our body parts, making life size humans and singing Head Shoulders Knees and Toes!!

Well done to all the y4s who have been completing their homework.  Please remember to bring it back on Thursday so it can be marked and sent out again the following Friday.
