Sunday 8th July saw the long anticipated Year 4 stalls which have been created by the children as part of their Enterprise Topic. The winning ideas were Hungry Lion (Beech Class) and Spin the Wheel (Elm Class). After being notified of the winning ideas by the PTA, the children set about making the games and creating posters to advertise them on the day. All the children pulled together to ensure this was done in time for the fete. On the day of the fete about half the children were able to come and run the stall, showing lots of enthusiasm and responsibility. Both stalls were very successful and each made a profit of approximately £60 – a total of £120 to go towards school resources.
3D Maps of the UK
Mrs Brewer and Miss Jameson have both been blown away by the quality of this term’s homestudy. It is clear that the children have spent a lot of time creating their maps. The diversity of their creations has been amazing – from edible maps to Lego maps and everything in between. It’s been a pleasure to see them walk in the door holding their work. We are very much hoping to be able to create a more permanent display with the more sturdy maps where they can be admired in the Autumn Term.
Magical Mystery Tour of the UK Year 4 cont.
Since the last newsletter, we have been busy planning a three day tour of the UK. We have looked at model texts, identified language features and created a text map to rehearse the language used in this text type. We have then begun to plan our own text, using our knowledge of the UK to research our own tour. We have drafted a three day itinerary and now need to use the language features identified to create our own version of the model text. We will then extract the most important information to create leaflets for our tours.
On Monday 2nd July the whole of Year 4 attended Birchwood Games, an annual event we are lucky to be able to participate in. There were many different activities on offer for us to experience, including Hip Hop Pop, rocket ball, futsal, cheer leading, dodge ball, netball and hockey, which were led by expert coaches. The children enjoyed the opportunity to extend their skills in sports they are familiar with as well as learning new ones. It was a very hot day but the children did not let this affect their enjoyment or behaviour and they represented the school very well.
