Clean Up Hatfield Campaign
On Tuesday the children enjoyed Indoor and Outdoor Learning. Activities included :-Litter picking and making bird feeders from recycled materials. Picking apples and using them to make bird seed kebabs!
Where in the World...Themed week.
We learnt about the problems the Sea Turtles are having in Sonrisa, South America.
Pollution and acidification of the seawater is causing problems for the Turtles. The coral reefs are being damaged so there is less fish for the Turtles to eat. We discussed what people could do to help and made posters to explain the problems.
The children had fun dressing up as their favourite character from a book. We shared a funny book called The Chicken Thief and wrote our own comic strips.
George talked to us and we learnt about what it means to be 'resilient'.
Year 4 also enjoyed a workshop where we had to try to make towers from marshmallows and spaghetti! This took real resilience!
French at Onslow St Audrey's
On Friday 10th February, Year 4-1 went to Onslow to experience a French lesson hosted by the pupils. We had great fun playing a range of interactive games. We learnt the French words for a variety of different sports and wrote sentences saying if we liked, loved or disliked a sport. The juice and biscuits was an added treat!
The Bigger Picture- Live learning February 2017
In Live Learning we were reminded about how to keep safe on the Internet. We discussed the meaning of some emojis and played a match up game. Also we looked critically at images from the internet to decide if they were 'real' or 'fake' . We learnt about the importance of considering the 'bigger picture' when looking at images from the internet. Somethings we thought looked real, were in fact fake!
On the 18th November Mr Dummer ( a Governor) came to talk to us about his life as a child growing up at the time of WW2.
We learnt so much about his life in Portsmouth. We found out that he was evacuated, but only for 3 months!
In DT we designed and made our own Torches. We had to make a real working switch and an electrical circuit.
It was very tricky!
September 26th Themed Week 'Think Outside the Box'
Year 4-1 enjoyed a whole Themed Week called 'Think Outside the Box'
It was such an action packed week. We dressed up as 'Something we'd like to be when we grew up'.
The Stomp workshop was great fun. Finding a Giant Egg on the playground inspired us to get writing too!
This term in P.E we have been doing Zumba. We showed our dances to
Year 4-2. We were fantastic!
We had loads of fun today! We had three animal visitors and then we went to see all of the animals in the Multi-Purpose Hall. There were so many different creatures to look at. We also did some wonderful writing describing all different animal journeys through a jungle setting.
Science in Year 4
We have been learning a lot so far this term about electricity. First we learnt about how to be safe when using electricity. Then we found out how to make a complete circuit. Last week we learnt about what materials are electrical conductors and which are electrical insulators. Take a look at the pictures - we've had lots of fun learning!
Dinosaur Dome - Monday 8th June
On Monday 8th June we were lucky enough to have a dinosaur dome come and visit our school. We got to handle real life fossil and pretend to be palaeontologists! Then we got to go inside the amazing dome where images were projected all around us. The film we saw was brilliant.
Here are some of our favourite parts:
‘I loved holding the fossils’
‘I learned what the earth looked like 65million years ago’
‘I learned the difference between herbivore and carnivore teeth’
‘It felt like the earth was spinning’
‘I learnt that an asteroid hit the moon before it hit the earth’
Roald Dahl Day 2015
On Friday 5th June we had a Roald Dahl Day in year 4 as we have been studying The Witches as part of our Take One Book unit. We had lots of fun dressing up (thank you for the support Grown Ups). Can you guess which book we are from? After assembly, we read a biography of his life and created our own timelines of his life. Then we played the Great Mouse Plot game to help us develop our character descriptions. We also watched a video by Roald Dahl which gave us really good writing tips. Some of our favourite tips included ‘My favourite tip was not to stop on a blank page’, ‘I enjoyed that he included places he knew in his book, like the caravan in Danny Champion of the World’. In the afternoon we went on a virtual tour around the museum and got to watch the film version of the book that we were studying. We all had a fantastic day and it has definitely inspired our writing.
Maths Week 2015
This week we have had Maths week at school. We have tried lots of different activities this week such as the carousel where we took part in activities with different classes. As well as this we have had visitors from the World of Maths and Magical Maths who showed us just how fun maths can be!
We also did lots of different activities in class like creating monster patterns that tessalated.
Joy of Reading 2015
We got the chance to meet a real life author named Nicola Davies and look carefully at her books. She told us some great stories, read us some of her own story and we even got to ask her some of our questions using a microphone! It was a great experience.
French Themed Day 2015
On Monday we had a French themed day where we all had to come dressed in the colours of the french flag and we spent the whole day doing French activities.
We started our day with a French assembly and then we got to grips with food vocabulary and our days of the week in French. We played games and even made a chatterbox to help us!
After break we acted out a french book about food and rabbits - we were actually reading together in French! Next we had a go at writing our own version of 'Qu'est-ce que les lapins aiment manger' using our own animals and food choices as well as illustrating them.
In the afternoon we came back to our very own French Cafe complete with menus and waiters and waitresses. The waiters/waitresses asked us for our orders in French which we noted down on a slip of paper (in French again!) and brought to the chefs (Miss Stone and Miss Cowan) who gave us our french delicacies. The rule was no french = no food and we all did a fantastic job of using our new found french phrases.
A great day was had by all.
French Themed Day
On Monday 9th February we are having a French Themed Wonder Day, therefore we are inviting children to dress in French Themed clothes - this can be as easy as the colour of the french flag or as creative as the Eiffel Tower it's up to you! If you do dress up we are asking for a 50p donation to help fund our wonder days and French throughout the school.
Thank you for your support and we will let you know what fun happens on the day!
