We had a great day being evacuated to the countryside in Year 4M. We made our evacuee tags and packed our cases, all ready to set off on our journey. We learned a little about what is was like and performed some drama. Finally, we wrote a letter to our families telling them how we were getting on in our new home. Everyone looked fantastic and really enjoyed the day!
Year 4 had a lovely morning out at Christmas Cracked at St Andrew’s Baptist Church. They took part in lots of different festive activities whilst learning about the true meaning of Christmas.
Mrs Elijah came to visit Year 4M on Monday and told us all about the Torah for Judaism week. We learned a lot about the Jewish faith and really enjoyed her visit.
Year 4M had an excellent trip to the RAF Hendon Museum in London, as part of our WW2 topic. We explored the museum, looked at the RAF airplanes and also took part in some workshops. We visited a WW2 style home and shop where we heard about what it would be like to live during WW2. We visited an air raid shelter and also had the opportunity to wear RAF uniforms.
World War 2
We have started learning all about the beginning of WW2 and have made a timeline of all of the events that happened during the war. We were also very lucky to hear all about some family members who fought in the war. Thank you to anyone who brought in medals, pictures or stories about their family.
Remembrance Day Parade
A few members of Year 4M had the opportunity to represent our class at the Remembrance Day parade on Friday 9th November. The boys and girls that took part helped to commemorate 100 years since the end of WWI.
We had a lot of practice debating this week on various different topics. We used all of the persuasive techniques we were learning in English to help us form strong arguments.
No Pens Day
No Pens Day was a great success in Year 4M. We made beautiful habitat art and played some interactive maths games. Well done to all of the boys and girls for such a fantastic day!
We have been learning about habitats in Science and the many different species that live in each of the habitats. After learning some facts about invertebrates we went on a hunt to find as many as we could around our school playground. We found lots of different types of minibeasts including bees, woodlice, spiders, ladybirds and lots of daddy-longlegs!
The sun was shining for 4M’s trip to Campbell Park on Tuesday morning. The children used their map and compass skills to get around Campbell Park. Working in groups they were able to follow the route around the park and place on the map where they had been to and where they were going! Along the way we spotted a lot of interesting sculptures!
