Our theme week this year is science-based and we have enjoyed taking part in activities in our houses.
This year's theme was the Olympics and Mrs Lewington worked with the class to produce a three-tiered extravaganza! The bottom layer was banana and walnut, the middle layer was coffee and the top layer was chocolate, to celebrate the produce that Brazil offers. This was then covered in icing and decorated with plaques depicting the various sports on that to be competed in next month. After all of our hard work we were awarded 1st place!
To commemorate the Queen's 90th Birthday, Year 3 and 4 had a tea party on the playground.
A huge congratulations to the top three highest readers in our class: Nazir, Jessica and Carmen.
Well done to all who took part and were rewarded with jelly and ice cream.
This half term, we have set the children a challenge to help increase the amount of reading that is done at home. The children have been asked to have a signature for every five pages they read, and a total of fifty signatures by Tuesday 24th May. All of the children who take part will receive a treat of jelly and ice cream; and the top three readers will receive a book of their choice.
To help encourage the children further, we have improved our reading corner and provided the children with book marks.
We have recently started our music topic and are enjoying playing instruments and learning poems and raps.
Over the last two weeks, we have been busy learning spellings for the annual Spelling Bee. Last week, everyone in our class took part in round one, and our three finalists were: Harry, Jaden and Isobel.
Yesterday afternoon, we went to the hall for the Year 3 and 4 final. All three of our competitors tried their best and did very well. After several rounds, Isobel was the last child to spell her word correctly, Jaden came second and Harry came fourth.
Well done to all who took part!
Primary and Secondary Colours
Today we looked at how primary colours could be mixed to produce secondary colours.
World Book Day
Today (3rd March), we celebrated World Book Day. Everyone dressed up as their favourite character, as you can see from the pictures below.
On the last day of the 1st spring half term, we were awarded our fourth attendance certificate of the year (with 99.3% attendance)!
To celebrate, we chose to have a cream tea-which was delicious-and several children's favourite treat so far!
On Friday (5th February) , we should have won the attendance trophy as we had 100% attendance for the previous week. Unfortunately, Miss Lockwood forgot to save the register for the Friday afternoon, so it looked as though the whole class was absent! Fortunately, we have now realised the mistake and have had our reward-pancakes!
This term, we have been finding out all about the 'Rotten Romans'. This topic has involved The Romans in Britain, Settlements, Mosaic Making, Hopscotch and Finding out about Jesus.
This year, we are taking part in a 'Successful Learning' project. Last week we looked at how we can shape and stretch our 'Fantastic Elastic Brains'.
An Hour of Code
This week, we have taken part in Code tutorials featuring Disney's Frozen, Minecraft and Star Wars, and have printed off a certificate to celebrate our achievements!
The Museum of Somerset Trip
In the last week of term, we rounded off our topic by visiting The Museum of Somerset, in Taunton. There, we took part in three workshops (dressing up, Roman numerals and looking at artefacts) and completed worksheets about the displays. We all had a wonderful day!
Open the book
This morning, Year 4 were chosen to help out in the school assembly about the Nativity.
This Christmas we have made: stockings, cards, calendars, boxes and lanterns. We also enjoyed a Christmas meal and party.
