Learning in P4B

Well Done to all our P4B swimmers – they have all achieved so much through their swimming experience and have represented our school brilliantly. Our swimming teachers were also pleased with the work we had completed in our swimming diaries. The diaries, certificate and swimming tokens will all be sent home to share shortly.

‘We went to watch a drama performance in the school. It was called ‘Up to Speed’ and the actors were fantastic – they played lots of different characters’ Nicole

‘This week we painted our self – portraits and the background. We were looking at the colour wheel’ Ricky

We decided on our new class incentive which relates to our Maths topic – Money. Each team can earn money for their piggy bank and at the end of the week we can choose to save or spend it!

‘We decided what treats we would like to spend our money on and how much they would cost’ Matthew

‘We had a table tennis taster session. We have another one next week’ Kai

‘This week in outdoor learning we were looking at maps – the map of the school grounds. We had to go North, South, East and West and we all enjoyed it’ Caitlin T

P4B – Drama and Role Play

Today we have decided on our new Interdisciplinary topic – Harry Potter. We will use this theme to learn through expressive arts – drama and music.

We would like to ask if any wizard/witch Halloween costumes could be saved and brought into school to support our learning.

Anything brought in, could we please make sure that names are on.

Thanks in advance,
Miss Smillie and P4B

Learning P4B – Magnets and Science

In science we have been learning about magnets.

‘We were visiting different stations with different magnetic activities. My favourite was the one with the car where I had to get a magnet and push the car away (repel) in a race.’ Connor P

‘I liked the activity where we had to find the metal balls which were hidden in the sand. The magnet worked through the plastic tray’. Caitlin T

‘We tested how many magnets would stick to a stronger magnet’ Aimee

‘I liked when we were finding out which items would stick to a magnet and which ones don’t. Anything that is metal would stick’ Eli

Well done on all your hard work this term P4B! I hope you enjoy your October break, stay safe and will see you all on Tuesday 24th October – please remember this will be a swimming day so don’t forget your kits! – Miss Smillie

Learning in P4B

‘In handwriting we have been trying really hard to join our letters. I found it a little bit hard but we will keep trying until it becomes easier’ Caitlin E

‘We were doing illustrations like Quentin Blake – we had to draw Miss Trunchbull. We used a compass to draw a circle for our picture and then we wrote adjectives around it to describe the character.’ Eva

‘ I really enjoyed swimming this week because we were learning the breast stroke’. Matthew

‘In swimming went into groups and we used noodles to go on our backs and we had to stick our belly up – keeping our eyes open and head in the water. It was easy and good fun’ Caitlin T

‘We were designing a certificate for community responsibility – keep the cloakrooms tidy. We got to design our own certificate and once we are finished we will select the best bits from a few and put them all together’. Neve
