To finish off our topic, we had a trip this week to Birmingham Sea Life Centre. It was a wonderful end to the half term and everyone had a good time. I think the highlights for the children were seeing the penguins race around their tank and of course the 4D cinema which squirted us all with water! We have also celebrated our homework achievements - well done to those who achieved their 10 stars and received a reward. We also had fun this week playing the chidlren's own ocean inspired board games.
Homework grids for our next topic 'Playlist' have been sent home. Mrs Sheldrick is looking forward to more children receiving their 10 stars!
Have a lovely half term break 4S!
The might look like painted water bottles at the moment but before next Thursday they will be transformed into a fabulous flower decoration for the garden or inside plant pot! 4S are hoping to raise lots of money for SSAFA at our garden fete on Thursday 14th February at 2:45pm.
(Unfortunately, Mrs Sheldrick forgot to hand out the letters about the fete today, sorry 4S parents! Further details will be sent home on Monday).
The Blue Abyss
This half term our Imaginative Learning Project is called The Blue Abyss. We have discussed some questions we want to find the answers to and have already learnt the answers to some! This week we have learnt about the layers of the ocean and started some science work looking at the properties of solids, liquids and gases.
Well done to all of those who competed in the X Table mastermind competition (a special well done to year 4 obviously!). It was Ash who lifted the trophy!!
In science this week we set up an investigation to find out which conditions a woodlice likes the best - dark or light? wet or dry?
Unfortunately, we couldn't find many woodlice! Where had they gone? At last, we found a couple so the investigation could be done! Back in class, we watched the woodlice in the trays and we found that after half an hour the woodlouse had settled in the dark half of the tray while the second woodlice preferred the dry side than the wet.
This week in Maths we have been counting backwards through zero learning our negative numbers. Above are a few number lines which were made in our maths lesson. We are hoping we don't experience minus temperatures just yet though!
Winning Week! (14.9.18)
4S were the best class at lining up this week! Well done! We now have the pleasure of Rosie in our class for the week who is currently making friends with Jigsaw Jaz. Jogsaw Jaz stays with 4S for our Jigsaw lessons and to help us remember to take turns when speaking.
Welcome to the new school year. Our class blog will be updated to record any class news, pictures of things we’ve done and photos of key events in our school year.
Do you have any ideas for this page? If so, then let Mrs Sheldrick know!
