We had a wonderful time celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. During the day, we worked with other children from around the school.
We played traditional games, the hopscotch was great fun and we had to pin the tail on the corgi whilst blindfolded!
After we had designed a Jubilee stamp, we spent the afternoon creating artwork linked to the decades of our Queen’s reign.
Congratulations to our Queen for her 70 years on the throne.
Today we celebrated World Maths Day with lots of great activities. I wonder if you can solve these brain teasers. The children from Year 4 managed to work these out with lots of thinking power!
We made the most of the lovely weather and took our maths learning outside too. Some groups had the challenge to build the highest tower out of sticks. Another group made a fraction wall out of sticks and the bricks on the wall. Some children took mathematical photos around the playground. It really is amazing how much maths is all around us!
We had great fun celebrating Red Nose Day in school today.
By wearing red clothes, we helped to raise money for Comic relief.
Each year we celebrate World Down Syndrome Day on 21st March. This date was chosen because people with Down Syndrome have three copies of Chromosome 21!
Chromosomes are shaped like socks and that’s why we wear our groovy socks to school!
Year 4 had a brilliant day celebrating the 25th World Book Day this week.
Our teachers chose a picture book that brought back memories and read it to a different class.
We all brought in our favourite books and shared some passages.
We also had a go at designing new front covers for some of the books we love to read.
Some of the Year 4 children had the opportunity to perform the ‘What the Dickens’ songs at a wonderful concert in St Mary’s Church in Fratton.
It really got everyone in a festive mood, ready for Christmas.
Well done children, you were amazing!
Charles Dickens' Birthplace
Last week we went on an exciting walk to the Charles Dicken's birthplace,
this trip helped support our English and History Curriculum as
we are studying Inspiring British Figures.
We were given a guided tour of the house and then
had an opportunity to sketch the outside.
What an amazing experience!
Year 4 have started their violin lessons and are very excited.
We're feeling hopeful that after a bit of practise
we'll be able to perform a concert!
