    Christingles

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Children in Year 4 had the opportunity to make Christingles, ready for the KS2 Nativity Church performance. The children learnt the history behind the purpose of the Christingle and learnt that it was introduced to Britain in 1969 (which was new to me!). The children did need to be suitable restrained from eating the left over sweets. The candles are ready to go.

    Haka and Street Dancing

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    The children have spent some time working with Mr O to perform a Haka style war dance. Mr Hart had the privilege of seeing this first hand today. The children showed some excellent moves and scary expressions to really intimidate Mr Hart. They showed some really good skill and gave a great a performance! Well done guys! This was followed by a Street Dance - Dance off. With music released when I was young (Run DMC verses Jason Nevis) children performed their street moves against each other in a dance off. First in pairs, then as a class. Safe to say, we have some really good dancers in Year 4. Very impressive stuff. Picking a winner would've been very hard.

    To link with our learning about the first world and particularly looking at trenches, the children have been given the option to design a trench from their knowledge. Children have to use their knowledge to design and think about the resources they need. This will be an end of term project to round off our term about the First World War.

    Year 4 Scientist appreciation.

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Today the children were looking at a dragon fly. But they were given the challenge to draw a part of the dragons fly in as much details as possible. They asked to blow the picture up and appreciate the challenges that face scientist looking at animals. Looking for things that weren't necessarily obvious at first. Children were asked to write down the things that they noticed. Must be said we have some very promising artists/scientists in year 4. Well done!

    Dance

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Year 4 have been working with Mr O and creating a dance as part of a team. Shakira's Waca Waca song was the inspiration to ensure continuity. Children then created 4 moves in steps of 4. At the end it must be said that the class gave some excellent performances to each other and showed great respect towards each other when teams were performing. Well done guys!
