Class 4 Learning

We are always busy in class 4; take a look at what we have been doing.

Leading up to Christmas we explored our science topic of electricity. We explored the journey of electricity, electrical safety, making circuits (including switches) and understanding about insulators and conductors of electricity.

Using the 19th century diorama idea, we designed and created our own story stages, to show the main characters and setting of a chosen Christmas story.  It was so much fun creating the light circuit to add and control a spotlight too.

Searching for hazards!

Performing is a favourite too! Here we are entertaining the residents at Oaktrees with a selection of Christmas songs – our favourite had to be ‘The twelve days of Christmas,’ greatly helped by the props to hold up!

You can see how much we enjoy singing – it really makes us feel good too.

Everyone loves art in class 4.

We enjoy learning new techniques, this is mono printing used to make our Christmas cards.

We are learning French!

We have been enjoying learning some more vocabulary.  We hope you like our French monster descriptions.

Thank you Mrs McCarthy, for helping us to make slime!

Could we do a topic titled ‘slimy and squirmy’ and not make slime?

Over the autumn term we have been exploring many science based tasks and have used them for inspiration for writing, calculating, measuring and many more creations.

Following on from our work studying teeth, we set up an investigation with eggs to see the effect drinks (water, lemonade and no added sugar ribena)  had on tooth enamel.  We were shocked by how the egg shells were affected.  I think we’ll be brushing our teeth more often!
Exploring the great outdoors, we enjoyed searching for snails, before being involved in many snails observation tasks.  The highlight of the day was snail racing!
We got to make our own snails too, just to help us to remember how much fun we had with the snails.
Whilst snail observing was a lot of fun, I think we beat it with building wormeries and charming our own worms – it was so much fun.  Just look how many worms we charmed!
We enjoyed working together; baking Nishnobblers and Pishlets from Roald Dahl’s Revolting Recipes.  We also enjoyed making dream jars inspired by Sophie and the BFG.

 

We have also been enjoying some science through our slimy and squirmy topic, especially tasting different tastes to test out the tongue map and joining in a research investigation to demonstrate how our digestive system works.
 

Class 4 celebrated Roald Dahl’s birthday on 13th September.

We all wore a yellow accessory, yellow was Roald Dahl’s favourite colour, to add to the mood of the day.

Wearing our yellow accessories, as yellow was Roald Dahl’s favourite colour.

Our day was been filled with celebrating lots of the slimy and squirmy aspects of the Roald Dahl, including;

  • baking ‘Nishnobblets’ and ‘Pishlets’ from Roald Dahl’s revolting recipe book,
  • making dream jars,
  • bravely searching for worms in Mr Twit’s spaghetti whilst being blindfolded,
  • writing our own revolting recipes and creating a new sweet
  • solving many mathematical and logic puzzles and mazes
  • creating bookmarks,
  • and watching the Puffin live webcast celebrating Roald Dahl Day with extracts from the Min-pins and Quentin Blake drawings.

Class 4 approached the day with an amazing attitude.  Well done to all.
