Virtual Christmas Carol Service
Year 3 and 4 would love to show you their Christmas Carol Service that you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home…
Poppy themed calendars
To end to our War and Peace Topic the children created the most stunning paintings showing one of the symbols of remembrance, the poppy. I was blown away by the care and effort that the pupils put into their art work!
The children followed a set of instructions to make their own Christmas cracker for Christmas dinner day. They used a cardboard tube, tissue paper and a snapper, then wrote their own joke and added a sweet treat!
Christmas Tree Decorations
Everyone in Year 4 spent time creating an amazing origami Santa Claus. They had to learn how to fold the paper correctly and needed to use a great deal of patience for their creations. We then had a Tree Decorating Service where each class puts their handmade decorations onto the school Christmas tree and it looked incredibly festive!
A very special thank you to one of our classmates for bringing in a real gas mask and it’s original box that belongs to her Grandparent. The children really enjoyed seeing a real life artefact from the war time and they were full of thoughtful questions about it!
National Takeover Day/Children in Need 2021
Once again, the school had another really successful morning where the Year 6 pupils took on different roles across the school. The Year 6 teachers planned a brilliant day full of Children in Need themed activities for our class and it’s fair to say that everyone had a great time!
In their English lessons, the class learned about the features needed for writing an effective diary entry. The children then used their knowledge of life in the trenches to write incredible diary entries as though they were on the front line in World War 1. I am so impressed with their writing skills!
In their Topic work, the class were learning all about what life was like in the trenches for the soldiers in World War 1.
They were horrified to find out about the conditions that the soldiers lived in and that they often shared their trenches with lice and rats! The children also found out how trenches were made and learnt all about the different parts of a trench, such as the barbed wire fences, dugout and duckboard. This lead on to the class designing and making their own model trenches out of clay!
Year 4 then wrote their own scripts and worked hard to record their own mini films showing a war scene in their trench. Throughout the project the children developed so many valuable skills and they were really proud of their work!
Where The Poppies Now Grow
In English the children have been studying a poem by Hilary Robinson and Michael Impey and they have really enjoyed reciting and putting actions to the text!
When the class were talking about what they wanted to learn about during the War and Peace Topic, some of the children wanted to find out how World War 1 started and which countries were involved. The children learnt which countries were allies and then used atlases to locate those countries on a map.
MacMillan Reading Cafe
Year 4 and Year 3 enjoyed sharing a story together with a delicious cake. Thank you very much for your kind donations towards the charity!
War and Peace Topic
Our first Topic of Year 4 was launched with an exciting and fun “recruitment morning”!
The children have settled into Year 4 well and they created some amazing self portraits out of natural resources. It is so great to see that we have such talented artists in this class!
