In our English lessons, we have been learning about information texts using the Talk for Writing method. The children have worked hard to learn a model text about Rainbow Dragons. You can watch them performing the first section of the text in the video below. They will be writing their own information about dragons next week.
We are focusing on flight in our topic work at the moment. The children have planned an investigation into spinners, choosing for themselves what they would like to change about the spinners, made the spinners and started to test how different factors effect how the spinners work.
We have been learning about properties of materials and methods of joining materials through a fun challenge. The children had to make a boat out of only natural materials. They had a great time and learned that mud is not a good replacement for glue! They found out that size and weight of a material is important and whether it floats or not depends on the amount of water. I was particularly impressed with the collaborative work and the children’s perseverance.
Over the last four weeks, Year 4 have been working hard to build on and improve their story writing skills. They have learned how to use speech marks correctly and how to use a specific story structure. The children have self and peer assessed their first draft before using this to write a final copy.
Today we went on a texture walk around the school grounds. We felt different natural materials and collected some to stick down as a record of our walk.
Croeso i Flwyddyn 4! Welcome to Year 4!
I hope everyone has had a wonderful summer. I'm looking forward to us all being together again, safe and well.
Below is our first class newsletter and the new KS2 booklet with lots of information about the changes in school.
See you soon, Mrs Foley
