    Music

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Children in year 4 have had the pleasure of learning drama and music on Thursday afternoons with Miss Blyth. The children have been looking at how music is used to introduce animals in films and have composed their own piece of music linked to animals. The children have had a lot of fun doing this and have shown great progress with the subject. Well done guys!

    Golf

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    The children were extending on their golf skills today. After last weeks efforts working on their long games, the children were focusing on the short game and putting. The children were putting on quick service but quickly got the hang of their technique.

    World War 1 countries

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Today Year 4 were using google maps to explore and plot the countries of World War 1. The children had to write what continent the countries were in. The children were thrown a few curve balls with countries that no longer existed, which provided an interesting debate.

    Food banks

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    This year Year 4 took a slightly different approach to Harvest. The children had a harvest assembly in the morning and in the afternoon we had a focus on food banks and the positive impact they are having on society. Although some were upset about the need for food banks, we talked positively about how they help people in crisis and listened to a few stories of people who have used them. We then looked at the local food banks in Dursley, and decided to make a poster to encourage donations to the local food bank. We also took some time to celebrate the brilliant volunteers to give up their time and efforts to maintain food banks. The children approached with subject with respect and maturity. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the donations we received today for the food bank.

    Football and Golf

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Year 4 continuing with their whole afternoon of P.E took full advantage of the amazing weather, and enjoyed some football and golf. With most of the children being introduced to golf, it was pleasing to see how quickly they picked skills. I think we may have the future Rory McIlroy in our midst! Well done guys!

    Only one of me

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    The children, carrying on from their big write from last week, were tasked with creating a fish using collage techniques. The children were given only this instruction to create a unique fish. The children created some brilliant pieces, and used vibrant colours to create amazing fish ready for display in school. I don't envy Mrs Vizard having to pick her favourites out the class. There are lots to choose from!

    Animal Research

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    As part of a science term focus on digestion, year 4 researched animals on the national geographic website. They were given the task of finding out which animals were omnivores, carnivores and herbivores. The children completed their own research on a variety of animals, and discussed their diets. They later watched a clip of Steve Backshaw eating some poo, whilst discussing how habitats in different countries can impact on animals diets. That is one Science investigation we will be leaving to the experts!

    Reading Records

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Reading records have been sent home this week. We please ask that you sign your child's reading for the week. We have provided an example of what your child's book should look like. We will be keeping a record of how often your child will read and what type of books they are reading. We are hoping to broaden children's literature and provide a wider range of experience and develop a love of reading.

    World War 1

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    This week children were started looking at World War 1 following on from our suffragettes topic. We just looked at the main causes of World War 1 (turns out there are quite a lot) and created a poster to encourage men of Britain to join up. The children had really interesting ideas about the war, and I'm looking forward to find out more about the Great War.

    Digestion

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Year 4 are looking at human health in Science. Today the children created a drama linked to the process of digestion. We started off with eating a cracker and thinking about the process of digestion. The children performed some informative drama's, luckily avoiding any graphic demonstration of the end of the process! Well done guys!
