So the end is near but that’s not stopping us from working our socks off!

In Literacy, we have been inventing our own room that could be part of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory! The children had to draw it and then describe it using noun and adverbial phrases. There were some great ideas, including a Savoury Room with a delicious gravy lake from Yaqoob. Yummy!

In Numeracy, we have been revisiting some objectives from early in the year to make sure we have mastered them as well as practsing our times tables using Mathletics and TT Rockstars

On Wednesday, we all took part in what was described as another epic Sports Day. The long run was back as well as all the usual favourites.

On Thursday, 4G met Miss Jones in preparation for Year 5. She reported that the class were lovely and all made a good first impression!

In Topic, we have been preparing for our trip to Horton-in-Ribblesdale, next Tuesday. We have been using OS maps to locate things in and around Horton to give us an idea of what we might see or not see!

We have also been working on our Islamic e-books, using Book Creator on the iPads! They are coming on nicely but still need a bit of work before we publish them.

Make sure you check out the class training like a Jedi. It was great fun and I was really impressed with the level of concentration and commitment they showed. Click the image below to see the video.

Congratulations to Darcie and Elissa for their Special Mention awards this week.

Have a lovely weekend!

4G’s Train Like a Jedi

Over the past few weeks we have been trying to be more physically active in class. We have been using the Change4Life website to help action this idea.

We have been learning some Jedi moves.

The Resistance needs you!

Calling all friends of the Resistance, the First Order are fast approaching and the Resistance need as much help as they can get during their darkest hour. This is your chance to help, so get ready!

Through this fun Train Like A Jedi video, Olympic gold medalist Jade Jones will guide you through 12 special moves which will help you master the ways of the Jedi. Be strong, healthy and prepared for when the Resistance might need you.

The 12 moves become one Jedi training routine. Don’t worry if you can’t manage them all at once – some of them need a bit of practice. And once you’ve mastered these don’t be afraid to have a go at creating your own moves too!

Once you have finished the training, these Jedi skills will be valuable in the next part of the journey – a series of secret challenges during the summer holidays.

Have fun, work hard and Train Like A Jedi. May the Force be with you!

Has anyone noticed that the weather’s been a bit warm?

This week in 4G we had a great time learning about Farsley. We walked down Town Street and conducted a traffic survey. We thought about why we saw the types of vehicles that we saw. We also the plotted local amenities onto a map. We then thought about what it would be like to live in a small village in North Yorkshire in preparation for our school trip on the 17th July.

 

In Maths we revisited fractions and the children showed great progress in their understanding for the last time we looked at it. We also started using an awesome website called TT Rockstars. Every child now has their own login details to help them practise their times tables. You click the image to go to the website.

In Literacy we have been working on descriptive writing using noun phrases and adverbial phrases. The children enjoyed watching clips of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and describing their own version of the chocolate room. Next week they will be creating their own food room.

We did our final SRE lesson this week. We focused on emotional changes and looked at different scenarios and talked about how we could react if put in the position.

We have decided to stop homework now. Children can practise times tables, go on times tables rock stars, practise their spellings or go on Mathletics if they have time to keep learning at home. Please make sure that you hand in both the maths homework book and Learning Log.

Your child has been given a letter detailing Sports Day next week. It includes their team colour. We will be sorting out the events next week.

Congratulations to Bethany for her Special Mention Award this week.

Have a stunning weekend and come on England!

Hi all,

This week in 4K we had a great time learning about Farsley. We walked along Town Street and conducted a traffic survey. We thought about why we saw the types of vehicles that we saw. We also plotted local amenities onto a map. We then thought about what it would be like to live in a small village in North Yorkshire. We looked at OS Maps of Horton in Ribblesdale and learnt to recognise map symbols. We then predicted what we would find when we got there. Here we are conducting our traffic surveys.

In Maths we revisited fractions and multiplication. The children showed great progress in their understanding.

In Literacy we have been working on descriptive writing using noun phrases and adverbial phrases. The children enjoyed watching clips of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and describing their own version of the chocolate room.

We have decided to stop homework now. Children can practise times tables, go on times tables rock stars, practise their spellings or go on Mathletics if they have time to keep learning at home.

Thanks

Well it may have been a bit warm but that hasn’t stopped us from cracking on with our work.

In Literacy, we have been learning to describe characters in the style of Roald Dahl. We watched Matilda and described Mrs Trunchbull. We then imagined that Mr and Mrs Twit had a dog and began to write a description of what it would look like, based on Roald Dahl’s description of Mr and Mrs Twit.

A little reminder that the children have been asked to learn their year 3/4 spellings for a final assessment on Monday.

In Numeracy, we learnt how to translate points and shapes on a grid. We used all 4 quadrants to navigate around making sure the shape was exactly the same size and orientation but just in a different location the grid.

In Topic, we zoomed in on the world map to focus on the United Kingdom. We learnt about counties and then zoomed in further to look at a map of Yorkshire then Farsley.

In SRE, we looked at hygiene and products that you can use to help keep you clean when going through puberty.

We had great fun completing a circuit with Kettle Bells after listening to an inspiring assembly from one of our Year 3 parents.

Next week, we are off to Farsley to complete a traffic survey and find photos of different shops and amenities on a map.

Also, due to a clash in the diary we have had to swap the dates for our trips. 4G will now go on Tuesday 17th July and 4K on Tuesday 10th July. You should have received a letter about this on Friday.

A huge congratulations to Harry and his fellow Spelling Bee teammates. A fabulous silver medal result. Click on the link to find out more.

Hi all,

The children have coped really well, working hard in a very slightly hot classroom!

We have been learning to describe characters in the style of Roald Dahl. We watched Matilda and described Mrs Trunchbull. We imagined that Mr and Mrs Twit had a dog and wrote a description of what it would look like, based on Roald Dahl’s description of Mr and Mrs Twit. The children have been asked to learn their year 3 4 spellings for a final test on Monday.

In maths we had fun trialling Times Tables Rockstars. Your child should be able to log on and play this at home. We are focusing on the 3, 4 and 8 times tables this week. We also learnt how to translate points and shapes on a grid.

In topic we zoomed in on the world map to focus on the United Kingdom. We learnt about counties and then zoomed in further to look at a map of Yorkshire then Farsley. We had lots of fun finding our houses on Google Maps street view.

We had great fun completing a circuit with Kettle Bells.

Next week we are off to Farsley to complete a traffic survey and find photos of different shops and ammenities on a map.

Also due to a clash in the diary we have had to swap the dates for our trips. 4K will now be going on Tuesday 10th July and 4G on Tuesday 17th July. You should receive a letter about this today.

Thanks Mrs Kroon
