Fantastic First Day Back ! 

Wow !! Year 4 I have been super impressed with how you have come back to school following the Easter break. What great learners you have been today. 

You stretched your imagination muscle when thinking about a character from our text this week “The Freedom Song”, with some great collaboration in numeracy and that’s  not all! this afternoon, year 4 have uncovered an Egyptian pot in the classroom. 

We had to decode the hieroglyphics to see what the message said on the pot.

We then had a go at writing our own messages.  I’m looking forward to decoding them all this week year 4 well done !

I hope you are all still having a lovely Easter Break ! Me and Mrs Charlesworth can’t wait to hear about all the exciting things you have done this holiday. 

Our new topic this term will be about Egypt. Here is a copy of the Egyptian homework sheet for you to look at.  Again we will have a competition and prizes for collecting points for the projects you choose ! 

I know that Mrs Charlesworth is getting ready to hand out the prizes from last term too! 

Enjoy the rest of the holidays see you all on Monday.

Yummy Poetry

Year 4 have been stretching their imagination muscle to use descriptive language to write a poem about their shopping list, ready for our banquet on Friday.

We even wrote them up in the shapes of food or party decorations.

All the talk of food made Mrs Mahoney hungry this morning! 

Well done Year 4 😋

Foods of the rainforest!

On Monday year 4 had a go at tasting some foods of the rainforest.

Some foods were enjoyed better than others !! 😀

Well done to everyone for having a taste of everything. 

We tasted coconuts, avocado, ginger, vanilla pods, cashew nuts, sweet corn, sugar cubes, and the water from the coconut too ! 

We also made a bar chart for the most favourite food we tasted no surprises that sugar was their favourite !!! 😁
