We have had an amazing week practicing and performing our class assemblies!  Traveling from the UK all the way around the world and back again to be able to share some of our learning from Year 4. 

We hoped that  your enjoyed it as much as we did! Laughing

4AG are having the extra pleasure of performing their class assembly to children and staff from their link school, Bridge Special School.  They are really excited to share their knowledge and show off their singing skills again. Laughing

Another fantastic part of this week is our Topic lessons!  As part of the 'Colour' topic we are going to be creating healthy snacks, ensuring that they are nice and colourful.   To help us make our decisions on the food we need to use we will be tasting a variety of different fruits and healthy snacks that are already available on the market.  Can't Wait!

What an exciting week we have had! 

During our Topic lessons we have been investigating the meaning of different colours and how countries around the world use certain colours on their flags to represent them as a country.  Many of us have created our own flag for Whitehosue Common Primary School, using colours that represent us the best! Laughing

We ended last week becoming world class rappers and learning our times tables.  We we fortunate enough to have Mr NK teach us some fantastic raps to help us remember our times tables. 

We are still practising our class assemblies and we can't wait to show everyone on Friday! Laughing

Getting back into the swing of things has been great fun in Year 4!

|During our Literacy lesssons we have been looking at persuasive writing and the different features that companies use to persuade us to buy.  We have created our very own Marks and Spencers style adverts, using descriptive, persuasive language as well as selling exclusive holidays. Smile

We are also starting to prepare for our class assembly, 'Wanted Around the World.'  We have started to learn our song and we are making sure we use our loud clear voices when reading our lines.    We can't wait to show you all about your learning from Autumn term. Laughing

Within our Science lessons we are looking at 'Habitats' and so far this term we have been out and about in our school site looking for different creepy crawlies and the habitats they live in.

Next week we will be starting our new Literacy topic of 'Stories with Dilemmas' which will give us the oppurtunity to use lots of drama and links to our topic work, we look forward to sharing it with you soon.





All set for 2012!

Happy New Year from Year 4!

We have come back from the holidays refreshed and raring to go and last week enjoyed two busy days of learning about New Year Around the World as part of Every Child Matters Week.

On the first day back, we met with our link governors and had the opportunity to talk to them about our learning and our time so far in Year 4. We also got to ask them questions to find out more about their roles and responsibilities and get to know them well.

For our ECM activities, we learnt about New Year in the Punjab and enjoyed lots of creative and practical work with the Year 3 and 4 teachers which included drama, dance, art and stories. We linked our learning to Miss Harper's visit to Bawa Lalvani by looking at video clips and photographs and using these as part of our work.

It was an exciting and rewarding couple of days and we are now looking forward to our new topic for this half term, which is Colour, and all the interesting learning which we have ahead of us!

Holidays are comin' ... ...

We are looking forward to working with the teachers and children across year three and four over the next two days to enjoy some more art and craft activities, making all kinds of exciting festive treats to take home. We also have our fun filled Christmas parties to help celebrate the end of the year together! Woohoo!
