Year 4 had a visit from the community police to learn all labour Internet safety and safe use of social media. This was part of our topic “Lightning Speed” where we are learning all about the inner workings of the World Wide Web.
We have been learning about tempo in music, which is the speed of the music. We played “speed fiends” and had to Copy the tempo created by one of our friends. We also had to move to the speed of different pieces of music.
Class 10 have explored the equipment needed to name a circuit. We were challenged to make the bulb light up! After some tinkering, we figured out how to create a circuit and light up the bulb. We learnt that a simple circuit is a complete loop.
Year 4 have received a visit from the police this week. They came to talk to them about being safe online as part of their current topic. The children had to guess the age limits on games, they discussed their digital footprint, took part in a quiz and had a chance to ask questions.
Maybe we have a few budding officers of the future in our class!
Year 4 have been learning all about tempo. They discussed the meaning of fast and slow before comparing 4 pieces of music and grading them by Tempo.
They listened to a metronome and practiced clapping to the beat. Then played a few rounds of follow the leader with their musical instruments.
They also became composing champions when they chose our own tempo and instruments to create mini pieces of music. They had a great time!
Today Year 4 have been focusing on using practical equipment to extend their maths knowledge. They built numbers using counters, base 10 and took part in a 4 counter challenge!
On Tuesday 21st September, all children from Years 1-6 came to school in their sports clothes to recognise National Fitness Day. We were especially lucky to have an excellent personal trainer volunteer their time to come in and compete a short session with every year group.
During their PT session, the children had to rotate around 4 different exercise stations around the hall where they had to complete different exercises such as star jumps, sit ups, ladder runs and hurdles – all activities designed to get the blood pumping!
Take a look at the fun we had!
Today Year 4 started their new Dimensions topic all about Technology and the internet. They talked about how humans ‘stay connected’ and they were amazed when they had to create a timeline of technology and transport.
The teachers and children were shocked at how old some things were and the children couldn’t believe that the World Wide Web is only 30 years old!
We had an amazing day on Monday dressing up as characters from our new Dimensions curriculum launch. The children and staff dressed up as navigators, pathfinders, adventurers or explorers. It was a great fun day to launch a curriculum that we are all very passionate about.
This afternoon Year 4 completed a Commando Joe activity where they had to work as a team to transfer water from a bucket to a jug at the other side of the yard. The children really enjoyed it and showed great teamwork skills!
