Where would your Journey take you?

Hello

Journey is a children’s wordless picture book written and illustrated by Aaron Becker.

Through pictures alone, the book tells the story of a lonely girl who uses a red crayon to escape from a mundane world into a magical adventure.

Across the entire school, we have enjoyed this story, imagined our own magical worlds and invented some crazy contraptions.

Year 4 were selected to show their writing journey – and we now have a beautiful display in the library area. Please come and see it!

Here are a few pictures to tempt you in…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Added : Mrs Clarke was so impressed with this display that she took a photo and sent it to the author! Aaron Becker said, “Wow! What a display and what hard work everyone did!”

An Egg-y Experiment!

Hello all!

Lions Class have been very scientific over the past week. On Friday 12th January, they set up an experiment to discover the outcome on sugars on tooth enamel. Now, we are not amateur dentists, so we decided to us a similar material to make our conclusions.

We took 7 hard boiled eggs and immersed all but one in various liquids – milk, water, sugar-free squash, normal squash, orange juice and coke. We then left them for an entire week to see what would happen to the shell of the eggs.

What was surprising was that we’d all predicted that the coke would have the biggest effect – in actual fact it just dyed the outside brown, whereas the sugar-free option had the most disturbing change!

This is the news… 1916

Hello!

Today saw Lion Class complete a newspaper report describing the perilous journey of Ernest Shackleton and his brave men.

In the latest edition of The Daily Chronicle, you can ‘Read All About It!’, with amazing photographs and fantastic facts.

Well done all, you’ll make excellent editors – just make sure you’ve hit the headlines!

We are simply the quest!

Hello

Today has been slightly unusual, not in that we are wearing a spotty-themed mufti for the day for Children in Need, but because we’ve been writing our very own quest stories!

We planned our writing to make sure we had all the elements of a good story, then used interesting WOW words and our imagination.

We listened to some calm music to help inspire us.

Lions love computers!

Hello

Lion Class have been using the computers this half term to create a Slug Trail game in ICT, and most recently to write up their wonderful work on the Desert Biome. They researched various desert inhabitants, discovering the attributes of their chosen animal, its habitat and diet.

85657

PHIL EARLE

Phil Earle is an author that wrote three books called the war next door, super hero street and demolition dad. We watched a live chat about his life and childhood. Phil is a very talented guy. He had  a keen interest in kids books and writing books. Phil Earle is an amazing author.   His favourite character is the girl from the war next door. He said his super power would be to fly. When he was younger he was fat because he ate frazzles every day when he when he was little. Surprisingly he gave up frazzles for a year so he got a lot thinner!

Welcome to Lions Class

Lions Class have settled in brilliantly to the new routines and responsibilities of Year 4. We have already achieved so much in just 4 weeks!

We launched our topic ‘Scrumtastic’ alongside the beginning of the Rugby World Cup. Miss Colyer is happy that we have responded with such enthusiasm – she says our homework is so creative, our ball skills with Mr Filby have come on leaps and bounds and our non-chronological report writing is bursting with information!

In maths, we have learnt about rounding, estimating, adding and subtracting, as well as looking at fractions this week.

We are all working very hard and Miss Colyer is proud that we have earned our first marble party! The quiet critters are still a big hit too!

Please keep in touch via our blog – we like to know what you think of all our learning!

Church Visit

Last Tuesday we arrived at school, went into class, put are stuff away in the cloakroom and started our maths.  After maths we went out for a short break. We had a short break because after break we where to go straight to church. Our journey to church was so windy that we were nearly blown into the road! The church was decorated with handmade cross to be ready for Easter. The cross at the front was covered in colourful ribbons. It was very pretty. We sang two songs and Kelvin told us a story about Jesus teaching us to love. We will think about Jesus for Easter as we eat delicious chocolate eggs!

Happy Easter for everyone from Lions,

Poppy

We have been learning different stitches of embroidery; cross stitches, long stitches and running stitches. As our art project, we have made a pattern of a poppy on a little fabric square and they will be sewn on together to make one big patchwork. SAM_1890 SAM_1880 SAM_1905
