Coming soon to a (home) cinema near you………

Lights, cameras, ACTION!

We have been working so hard to complete our final product for our expedition. Even assessment week could not halt rehearsals and filming.

We have a little more to do, but just to give you a taste of what is to come next week, here is the trailer to our film, ‘Rocking Romans’.

Keep your eye on the class blogs for the full film.

Fantastic Focus!

Unfortunately, I haven’t got lots of lovely photos to share with this blog, as the main thing I would like to celebrate is how everyone has worked so hard this week during our assessments.

There have been some challenging questions and tricky problems to solve but the children have overwhelming worked incredibly hard and really tried their best.

I am very proud how they have stuck at the assessments and kept going even when it was a challenge.

Only one more day to go, so stick at it guys!

4G Pride of Plover

A big congratulations to Shashank in 4G. His consistent hard work and dedication has led to him him producing a very high standard of work that he can be very proud of.

I look forward to seeing you in the yellow t-shirt next week Shashank!

Well done

Mrs Graves

So proud!

4G have made me very proud today. They have worked incredibly hard to produce their information text ‘What did the Romans do for us?’.

After drafting, critiquing, redrafting and finally producing a polished version, they should be very pleased with the effort they have put in to create their ‘final write.’

They have demonstrated their historical knowledge of the Romans, that they have gained over the last few months, as well as tried really hard to write in the Year 4 style using the Year 4 features.

Well done everybody,

Mrs Graves

Calling budding pop stars!!

Year 3 and 4 are working hard to get ready for their performance of ‘The Rocking Romans’ which will be on our website all about the Romans. To help children prepare for this, you might like to practice the songs at home (lots of the children have been asking).

Please find a link above to the songs. We will be singing songs 1, 2, 3 and 8 from the list on the web page.

Happy singing!

Christmas Cards

Hello Year 3 and 4 adults!

The time is nearly upon us to start thinking about Christmas in school. Many children and adults ask us about cards. Due to the current situation, we have thought about how best to go about the giving and receiving of cards in school this year.

This year, please only send cards to children in your year group bubble (eg 3S and 3T or 4G and 4L).

From December 1st, children can bring cards and place them in the year group post box. This will be in their classroom. Cards can be dropped in any day up until 11th December.

On 11th December, the post box will close and no further cards can come into school. This will mean all cards will enter a period of quarantine. On Tuesday 15th December, all cards will be given out.

Please ask a member of the 3/4 team if you have any further questions.

Thank you for your support in helping to enjoy the joy of giving and receiving cards, whilst keeping everyone safe.

4G are scientists!

Today, we were looking at the results of our science experiments and making conclusions.

We looked at what plants need to live and decided that the most successful cress had light, water and nutrients. Even though seeds in other conditions sprouted, the plants were smaller and very pale.

We were really excited about how our experiment into how water is transported through plants turned out. It was hard to draw conclusions about which temperature conditions were the best for the celery, but we could very clearly see how the water and food colouring was absorbed and transported through the xylem in the celery. We cut the celery horizontally and could see the small holes of the xylem in the end of the stem and then we cut the celery vertically and could see how the xylem went right through the plant to the leaves at the top.

 

 

It’s great being scientists!
