Reusing tshirts

14 Sep 2017

4HB are thinking about all of the ways they can reduce waste. As part of this, the children had lots of fun transforming old tshirts that would have otherwise gone to the bin, into fashionable new shopping bags! It was very tricky and fiddly but they persevered, showed excellent teamwork skills and have produced some fabulous items. They tested them out by putting homework diaries and water bottle in and the bags held them no problem, well done 4HB!

Welcome to 4HB

07 Sep 2017

Welcome to 4HB! I hope you have all had a wonderful holiday, it has been lovely hearing all about the fun the children have had during their break off. I have been very impressed by the children's homework they have completed including fabulous diaries and postcards of their exciting adventures! Keep the excellent effort up! 

This week we have been having lots of fun getting to know each other, the classroom and the new amazing parts of the school including the shiny new playground! We've also been exploring our topic of 'Waste', making drums out of mixing bowls and chopsticks, learning Kung fu punctuation, learning times tables songs and thinking about what we want to achieve in year 4. 

On Monday 11th September, there will be a pop in parents evening for you to come and see our classroom and find out about our learning. I look forward to seeing you there!

Shadow puppets

06 Jul 2017

We have been looking at light and the creation of shadows in Science and this week we created our own shadow puppets and performed a play with a partner using them!

Don't forget tonight is our Art Gallery evening! 3ANs portraits will be hanging outside our classroom in the hall 6.30-7.30pm for you all to come and see.

Tree walking

23 Jun 2017

Last week we had great fun on our tree walk around the Common, we explored all the different species of tree which we amble past everyday and also found one which had been struck by lightening!

In English we have been doing lots of acting for the run up to Double Double Act which we are off to see at the Unicorn Theatre on Tuesday (get your slips and donations in quick if you haven't yet!) We have been comedians for the week and teamed up with partners to create our very own double acts, pretty sure we have some budding French and Saunders in the room.

 We are also super lucky to have a new member who joined our team yesterday, as expected 3AN have been incredibly welcoming and he has settled in incredibly quickly.

As well as our trip to the Unicorn Theatre we have one to the CLC on Monday 3rd July so get your slips in!

Huge thank you to all who brought in treats to share with the class on International day, they were thoroughly enjoyed by all!
