We had great fun making a variety of puppets. Thanks so much to Mrs Berwick for helping us, an extra pair of hands made it all so much easier.
The children then worked in groups and presented their own puppet shows to the rest of the class.
P4 are learning about volume, hands on. Does the volume of the ice we collected stay the same once it has melted? We borrowed P1’s water tank so we could practise accurate measuring, we recorded our ideas on the whiteboard.
We worked in 3 teams to design and build an igloo. The snow angels built theirs with big boulders made out of giant snowballs then used tubs to create small snow bricks. Team Gangster built theirs using big tubs shaped as a snow cube. Abominable Snow boys built theirs out of a mound of snow and then dug out a door by scooping out with a little spade. Extreme outdoor learning!
Our topic this term in P4 is water. We have been learning about the water cycle and decided to take our learning outside to see the water cycle in action. As it was a dry day we had to make our own puddles in the playground. The children worked in groups, they found suitable places to make their puddles and then we went back to see them after an hour to see what had happened to them. Where had our puddles gone? Ask your child to explain our experiment with puddles.
In our accelerated reader we have been working towards getting an average of 80% on our reading quizzes. We have been working towards the target for 5 weeks. We got 82.5% this week, our reward? A popcorn party!!
P4 have been learning about line symmetry, homework will be given out on Monday on this topic. This maths help sheet may be useful.symmetry help sheet
P4 have been attending drama every Thursday afternoon this term and they have been working really hard learning the conventions of drama. We have used drama to explore our topic the Romans and have had great fun doing so. We will be continuning drama after the October break.
P4 are doing a mobile phone challenge. Would you help us please? It would make all the children happy. We would get activotes for our whiteboards. In exchange for the phones money also goes to the charity Childline. And you are recycling your phone. Remember you can bring your old phone to us and all the children get a sticker
