Reading Buddies

Friday 15th November | 5 comments

There were plenty of creative costumes on display today for our Children in Need day. We spent some time this morning trying to guess which adjective had been chosen to describe the various getups. This afternoon, both classes joined with the two reception classes to read books to the younger children. We had a lovely time sharing a range of stories and the feeling was that we would definitely like to repeat the experience.

Our Maths this week has focused on multiplying by 10 and 100. We also related this to division, making sure we used the correct explanation and terminology to describe the processes undertaken.

In science we scraped, plucked, tapped, blew and strummed our way through an investigation to find out if something has to move for a sound to be made. After lots of careful looking, listening and touching our observations proved that something does move – we had discovered vibrations.

Next week we will go on to investigate how vibrations travel through gas and solids.

Special mentions this week go to Daniel, Alfie and Joe for great work this week. There were also a couple of outstanding debuts for the girls football team. The team is normally made up of Year 5 and 6 girls but Isabel and Erin stepping in and played brilliantly. Well done girls!

Have a great weekend.

Mr Beevers, Mrs Kroon, Ms Howells and the Year 4 team

    Isabelle had a super day and loved reading with Bella from Reception. All of the children looked wonderful as different adjectives and made a fantastic effort for such an important cause. Well done to Erin and Isabel for stepping in to help the girls football team too!
