4C

Learning about fractions Reasoning and Problem Solving (22-5-19)

 

4C emptied their bags of skittles reluctantly (yeah, right!) and documented the contents. Then we generated fractions questions of our own to pose about the skittles. For e.g.

What fraction of the pack is red?

What fraction is not yellow? (add up all the other fractions)

Trudy says if she eats the yellow and red skittles, then she'll have eaten half the packet. True or false? Prove it.

What colour am I? I am 5/25 (so find the equivalent fraction to identify the right colour)

 

You get the idea.

Needless to say, we might have snacked on some of the Maths.

Fractions Maths (22-5-19)

Run for your lives! Witches and wizards recite poetry! (22-5-19)

 

4C played witches and wizards as we begin to wind up our 'Shocking' ILP this half term. We recited some Shakespeare (Macbeth's witches' 'Toil and Trouble') whilst using hand gestures and evil faces to add drama.

 

What stars you all were!

 

That mean Miss Case (I mean, Miss Witch...) was totally witchy to everyone to inspire real drama but won't return too soon...

Fab Finish! Witch and wizard madness! (22-5-19)

It's Shocking - Wizard show and tell (20-5-19)

 

One of our super pupils flew about on his broomstick in show and tell today!

Watch out - he is quite handy with his magic spells and he has already threatened to turn me into a toad.

Lovely wizard show and tell (20-5-19)

Greek Legacy Homework - next half term (20-5-19)

Time for cheesy grins! (20-5-19)

 

4C had their best grins on today for the class photo in the hall! We lined up in size order and then let the photographer tell us to say daft things like, "Sausages!" All done for another year!

Class photo time! (20-5-19)

JIGSAW: Relationships with loved ones who aren't around (16-5-19)

Today, we discussed relationships with people in our lives.

We talked about why loved ones are special to us and how to reflect on those who aren't around.

Children talked maturely about their feelings and we've thought about some coping strategies.

Jigsaw: relationships with loved ones who aren't around

Remember that 'Shocking' ILP homework is due in this week please! Thanks (15-5-19)

Maths Inspire Workshop - Year 4 (9-5-19)

Children received a visit from the fire station on Friday. They were able to ask about fire safety, particularly in terms of electrical dangers in the home. Hopefully, this makes us now very aware of the uses and dangers of electricity as we move forward with our imaginative learning project this half term.

Swimming will continue on Wednesday and then for the first half of the Summer term, too.

I look forward to meeting with parents on Tuesday and Thursday evening for parents' evening appointments. Please see me if you still need to book a slot.

 

Have a lovely holiday, everyone!

DT: Making musical instruments (8-4-19)

Playlist Homework

What happens to sound when the distance between the sound source and your ear increases? (28-3-19)

 

That's what we tried to investigate today! 

 

Great conclusion from Harley: "The further the sound source from the ear, the quieter the sound."

 

Investigating the relationship between sound and distance... (28-3-19)

Fractions - finding equivalence and amounts (26-3-19)

Down Syndrome Awareness (update 26-3-19)

 

Our sock washing line is now up and running, which is just as well in this sunny weather! If only I'd been as organised with my own washing at home! Each sock is different and unique, just like everybody in the world.

Our sock washing line!

Down Syndrome Awareness (21-3-19)

 

Thank you to the children who wore unique, special socks today in order to raise awareness of diversity and Down Syndrome. There were some thought-provoking comments and questions from very intelligent, empathetic children today. Well done, 4C! :)

Down Syndrome Awareness

Hollywood! 4C has been using the i-pads to make films! (18-3-19)

Why is alcohol so dangerous? (18-3-19)

Mr Harrison taught 4C about the damage that alcohol can do to the liver - and how vital this organ is to our bodies. Some children did some drama and others wrote another verse for our song about keeping fit.

Playlist - Year 4 ILP

 

Here is the latest homework grid for Year 4's next imaginative learning project, Playlist. We'll start learning about it after half term but you can already begin to complete homework for it over the holidays.

 

I can't wait for this project - I absolutely love Music and I hope you will too (if not already)!

Homework for next Imaginative Learning Project

Birmingham Sea Life Centre

 

Wow! What an adventure we went on!

 

On Monday, Year 4 visited the Sea Life Centre in town. We had a guided tour and found out more about our incredible oceans. It was a really enjoyable day. When asked, most children said they liked the 4D cinema and the 360 degree tunnel the best.

 

I hope everyone enjoyed the way we finished off our Blue Abyss project.

Science investigation - does temperature affect a material's state?

We got out the thermometers and measured the temperature at which chocolate melts fastest.

Needless to say, there might have been a few members of 4C who tasted the chocolate!

Blue Abyss Homework

 

A big thank you to parents and children for having a good go at the Blue Abyss Homework this half term. It is clear that a lot of thought and effort went into the work.

 

Watch this space - the homework grid for next half term will be added very soon...

We've been learning a text map for an information text called 'Oil Pollution in Oceans'. It's such fun when you get to put actions to words and it helps us to remember some really great words, phrases and sentences that we can later use in our own writing. :)

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!     (18.12.18)

So much is happening this week! 4C visited Kings Norton Green to sing at church this morning. It was such a lovely atmosphere. Also, this afternoon, we had times tables mastermind. Well done to Ash, who collected the winning trophy for their times tables skills!

 

This week, we're finishing off with work on co-ordinates and doing some nice Christmas activities. 

 

Happy holidays to all - see you in Spring!

Visitors from the NSPCC were in school today to give children an assembly called 'Speak Out. Stay Safe'. We heard about what abuse is and how it is important to speak to a trusted adult. We learnt the Child Line number with a catchy song - 0800 1111.

Year 4 Trip to Botanical Gardens

 

On Tuesday 23rd October, year 4 visited the rainforest (oops - not really! Actually, it was Birmingham Botanical Gardens). We had a great time exploring, handling live animals and finding out about plant medicines, products and foods from the rainforest.

 

What a fantastic way to end this half term's imaginative learning project. A true FAB FINISH!

In Maths, we've been problem solving using addition and subtraction skills.

In English, we've been using expanded noun phrases and fronted adverbials in descriptive texts about the rainforest.

In Jigsaw, we discussed consequences of actions and thinking ahead.

In Topic, we considered the impact that humans can have on environments.
