Lions watch Phil Earle on author live link



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,

A Lion in Paris

a lion in paris book We have been learning about Paris this term.

On Monday, we listened to a story called “A Lion in Paris”.

In the story a lion from a zoo wanted to have an adventure so he decided to visit Paris. First he saw Eiffle Tower but he didn’t know it so called it “Iron Tower”. After the day, he went back to the tram station and on the side was a picture of a woman but he thought that it was a real person. In the end of the story he decided to climb onto a stone block and gave a happy Roaaaaar of joy and stayed there.

In Literacy,  we have written our version of this story but not with Lion so I chose bear. It was fun!

Christmas play

We’ve been learning all about other countries’ traditional Christmas celebrations, we learnt that all the countries have each a different way to celebrate Christmas, but they still celebrate the same  special baby. On the 25th of December the savour was born and brought peace and love to the world and gave friendship to us. In our Christmas play each county shares what they do on Christmas. We all had a part  to say because there are so many ways to celebrate Christmas. At the back of the stage we had a Nativity scene with the year threes in our class. We all had a great time learning  our lines and practising the hole play. If you watched we hope you enjoyed our play. We’ve  also been making different foods from different countries including  polish bread and Chinese dumplings.

This week we have been learning a lot about world war one. We have been finding out what it was like living in the trenches. As a class we read a diary account written by a real soldier in world war one. It was very hard to believe the conditions during the war. We learned about some of the terrible infections suffered by soldiers in the war like trench foot and frost bite.
