4G have been hard at work this afternoon, thinking about what robots would be useful in the future. This is the first stage in preparing for our Expedition celebration, when we will be trying to convince parents to vote for our robot.
Year 4 have had an awesome day at Magna as part of our science curriculum.
We extended our classroom learning with workshops about magnets and circuits and we brought our learning to life in the Earth, Water and Fire zones,
The children were fantastically well behaved and had a really great time.IMG_8800
At Y3/4 yoga club our skills are developing nicely, with some of our girls mastering the difficult yoga pose!
As we approach the end of our first half term, 4G continue to impress with their fantastic creativity and dedication, bringing in more and more wonderful robots to decorate our classroom.
Well done guys, keep it up!
It was a real honour for year 4 to represent Plover School today at the World Cycling Championships. We were’t competing of course, but we formed the support crowd to cheer on the cyclists as they raced along Leger Way.
Waving our Yorkshire Flags, we shouted and cheered and we were even filmed by the BBC and got a mention for the school – you can see us on the BBC Iplayer https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/live/cycling/48373975 (14:09)
It was so exciting to see the police motorcyclists, helicopter and support vehicles – and then eventually the cyclists, but in the blink of an eye the were gone!
Since we returned to school, we have been practising mindfulness every morning in 4G to prepare us for the day ahead.
We have been using www.mindyeti.com for our short meditations. Each session has a different focus to help us with our breathing, emotions and how we relate to other people.
We are really enjoying our mind-yeti and are gettin good at finding our’yeti body’ to help us keep calm.
Some children in 4G have gone over and above in their home learning producing amzing robots to enhance our learning environment.
They should be really proud and have now earnt lots of house points for their house and a shop credit to spend at the end of the term!
Well done guys.
We have had a very busy first week back and we have done so many things about robots.
We have worked very hard today, doing a reading test and a times table test. These are going to challenge us to improve our learning every week.
We have started to learn a robot song and dance.
We are looking forward to our school trip in October and getting used to our new class.
There was a real buzz in the classroom this afternoon when family members joined us to get crafting!
We had several work stations running at the same time – in one area, children and their grown-ups were building our own giant box robot, in another area children were designing their robots from unusual images but the most popular activity was definitely the tin can robot design station. What imagination and creativity – I’m sure you will agree with me at how they have brightened up our learning environment.
We would like to say a big thank you to the parents, carers and family members who were able to join us for our family learning today or who sent tin cans and decorations to enable us to complete our activities – we could not have done it without you.
Plover had a robot invasion today, as robots of all shapes and sizes descended on year 3 and 4. Class 4G’s creativity was certainly on show with some amazing costumes and really clever design. Well done to all the children, families and friends that help to create them.
We were getting ‘hooked’ into our class book today – ‘The Iron Man’ by Ted Hughes. We made predictions about the book from the clues on the front cover and then shared the first chapter.
Following this we tried our hand at acting – as we re-enacted the key scenes from Chapter 1 – I think we have some future oscar winners in our midst!
The highlight of the day was definitely this afternoon when the whole of year 4 came together to watch the brilliant film ‘Robots’. We even got to share some popcorn as we watched!
Well done 4G – another fab day!
