Year 34's Challenge Day!. We were challenged to design and make a coffee table for Mrs Clarke using only newspaper and sellotape.It had to be at least 30 cm high, able to take the weight of the coffee equipment and be stylish enough to go in her office. It was tough but we managed it!

Challenge 1- balance a book!
It's too tricky!
Success!
How much can you balance?

Oh no!
Make a table to fit these on
A very messy and busy classroom
Tables starting to take shape
Making it look pretty

15 minutes left, panic!
Finishing touches

Dads to school morning- We have been learning about life in African countries and how it might differ to our own. This morning we had a go at making footballs from recycled plastic bags, just like children in Africa do.

World Cup week- We practised our football skills, then had a penalty shoot out where we had to show our best 'celebration' or 'unbelievable miss' faces.

Our African Landscape painting

Tag Rugby Festival- coaching and a tournament .

World Book Day- We came to school dressed up as a book characters. We had to complete the character catwalk , be interviewed on the hot seat and be ready to 'drop everything and read'!

Year 4 have been learning about the lifecyle of chickens

This group chose to present their learning as a rap- fantastic!

 Year 4 have been learning to write explanation texts. Although we have been explaining fictional things we have been writing as though it is fact, using explaining conjunctions, generalisers, time adverbs and formal language. We have written explanations of Wallace and Gromit's Cracking Contraptions .

 

Miss Morgan invited us to the 'International Tellescope Conference' where some scientific professors were invited to explain their inventions to an audience of important scientists.

How does it snow? We learned about the water cycle and different types of precipitation then presented to the class. We had to remember all the keywords, make it interesting and try not to giggle!

What is in your imagination? Developing our art skills and making monsters to star in our stories!
