Class 4

Hello and welcome to Class 4!

Week beginning 8th May. This week we have been reading Jasper’s beanstalk. Class four have been trying to use a range of vocabulary and punctuation to improve the sentences. Next week we plan to rewrite the story so that it is much more interesting.

We also had a visit from a Judo teacher and some children from class four got to have a go at the activities during his assembly.

Week beginning 3rd March some of class four joined Mr Doherty and Miss Manion at St Hugh of Lincoln RC Primary School to take part in some football matches. They got very soggy and very cold but they played fantastically!!!

On the week beginning 27th February we celebrated World Book Day. Our class was full of different story characters and we finally got the chance to unveil our Gruffalo display to the school. We had been working really hard to make one big display that everyone had a part in making. It looks super in the hall alongside all of the other displays made by classes in our school. We chose the Gruffalo because we decided that we LOVE Julia Donaldson.

Week beginning 13th February

Class 4 completed their Great Fire of London projects. The houses were made to look like houses seen in London at the time of the fire and we used orange paper to make the flames. The children worked really hard to make their houses and they looked superb lined up on the windowsills in our classroom.

Week beginning 6th February class 4 enjoyed National Story Week! They absolutely loved coming into school in their pyjamas and took full advantage of having so many new books in school. They made themselves comfortable and got lost in the stories they read.

Week beginning 23rd January. This week class four officially began Show and Tell. The two children who spoke about their chosen topic had clearly spent lots of time preparing and spoke enthusiastically about their trips to Lego Land and Florida. The children who listened had lots of questions for them at the end and are now very excited for when it is their turn. Thank you all for supporting your children with this activity.

Week beginning 28th November

This week we were working hard to use questioning words and question marks in our sentences. Luckily, Santa came to visit our classroom and as we always have so many questions for him, he helped us to practice asking questions that have questioning words in such as why, how, when and many more.  He even made time to answer all of our questions too. Thank you Santa! Pictures to follow soon!

Week beginning 21st November

This week the children have been learning about the story if the three little pigs. They have been learning actions that would help them to remember the order that the story happens in and details of the story too. They then explored different materials for building homes. They tried out paper, straws and bricks. Check out their fantastic team work! They worked together to build some brilliant homes for the pigs.

It is our first week back since the half term and we have been very busy. We have been thinking about how people can keep safe around fireworks and have painted our own firework paintings. The children tried to make patterns using dots and lines to make realistic pictures of fireworks. They practiced first and then went onto their final piece.

On the week beginning the 10th October class four focused their learning on a book called ‘The Shark With No Teeth’. They were very lucky because two characters from the book, Cruncher the shark and Snappy the crab, came to visit our classroom. We thought of as many questions as we could to help us to understand what was happening in the story and how the characters felt about it.

This week we have been doing lots of getting to know one another and have shared our holiday news. I was amazed by all of the exciting this the children have been getting up to and by their fantastic writing.
