REACH OUTDOORS

Please see below for more information about our Reach Outdoors Residential coming up:

​​​​​​​

Exploring our world (7.11.19)

Wow! What a week of learning we have had! We have learnt about locating countries around the world using latitude and longitude coordinates. The class have consolidated their understanding of how to write speech while learning how to manage conflict. Today, Kingfishers had a go at independently making Onion bhajis from a recipe - we got messy!!

Discovering Grandpa Leicester and Grandpa Chatterji (1/11/19)

The whole of year 4 had an immersion into the story of Grandpa Chatterji this week. Each class got to ask both Grandpas questions, research vocabulary relating to the story, have a go at meditation before thinking about what makes a good character description. 

Wednesday 9th October - African Dance Workshop

As it is Black History Month, Year 4 had the opportunity to take part in an African Dance Workshop this week. All the children had big smiles on their faces throughout and really enjoyed learning some traditional African moves to live drumming.

Chewing, Crunching, Munching... (4.10.19)

In Science, the class have learnt about the roles of different teeth within the human mouth. We had a go at chewing pear with just our incisors and found this to be quite tricky. We also discovered that to rip a piece of crusty bread, canines were quite helpful. 

In Maths, Kingfishers have mastered roman numerals to 100 this week. Playing games with roman numeral dice have helped us to remember the value of I, V, X, L and C. 

Summarising Bill's New Frock (20.9.19)

This week, Kingfishers have been focusing on retelling the story of Bill's New Frock. We had the opportunity to act out key parts of the story and freeze-frame ready to create our story board. 

In Science, we've been looking what things can pose danger to our environment. The class have carried out research into global warming, ocean plastics, over-fishing and more general pollution before presenting their information to each other. 

Increasing vocabulary (13.9.19)

Kingfishers have been reading Bill's New Frock this week and thinking about what the same for boys and girls and what's different. As a class we've learnt how to search for words in the thesaurus and improved our vocabulary in order to describe Bill to someone who hasn't met him. 

Getting Started (6.9.19)

We've had a great start to the term as we've started looking at our theme of 'The same but different.' We've thought about what makes us us and how we are the same as and different from other children around the world. In Maths, we've have begun by looking at counting up and down in 25s and 1000s.
