    Hockey

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    We had our first PE lesson of the year. The children braved the elements and spent an afternoon learning to pass and dribble a hockey ball. We saw some skills and super efforts by all the children. We're looking forward to building up towards a game, then the Olympics! Well done year 3!

    Vikings raid

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    We started looking at the relationship between The Vikings and The Anglo Saxons today. The children looked through a timeline and then we reenacted the Viking raid on Landisfarne. The children had great fun and hopefully made the links of the past!

    Music - Creating instruments

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    You don't need a specific instrument to make music, you can use lots of objects in your home or garden. The children were sent a link to a video exploring various places to find items that could be turned into musical objects. Alongside this task, year 4 were asked to listen to (and appraise) "Dancing In The Street" by Martha and The Vandellas. Charanga is proving to be very popular. I can;t wait to see what it has in store for us next year.

    Riddle me this

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    The children are loving the daily riddles. A riddle is something that helps to improve children's thinking ability and creativity. Riddles are fun and also provide an opportunity to learn. When they start thinking, they will start reasoning. Children (and adults) will rack their brains and develop their problem solving capacity. It's also a brilliant way to improve your vocabulary. I'll leave you with, what word is spelled wrong in every dictionary?

    Maths - Locating decimals

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    The focus today was finding decimals on a number line, including those with unlabelled divisions. Year 4 had to pay close attention to the intervals on each line, as they were in different increments for each question.

    Art - Cow Appreciation Day

    Posted by Mr N Kavanagh
    Cow Appreciation Day is a day that has been designed to raise awareness about cows and appreciate everything that they do! You will see some weird things going on during Cow Appreciation Day. A lot of people dress up like cows for free food, and that’s just the start of it! So, we hope that you have a spare cow suit handy. We are reminded of all of the amazing products that cows bring our way, and a lot of people like to milk the occasion!
