Summer Term in Yellow Class

We have so many wonderful things planned for our learning this term.  We will be enjoying lots of fun activities based on our theme of pirates.  

 

WOW!

What an amazing Pirate Day we had.  The children looked wonderful, so did the adults.  Thank you to all our pirate helpers.  We could not have done it without you and your costumes were amazing too.  

"Shiver me timbers!"

 We had so much pirate fun.  

We hunted for treasure, cracked the pirate code, helped Captain Long Tooth uncover his frozen treasure, made beautiful pirate cakes and created amazing treasure maps. 


 

 

 

Ice Balloons. We have been investigating ice using water, salt and food colouring.

We have been studying Matisse. We made our own versions of The Sea at Polynesia.

We are enjoying reading The Lighthouse Keeper's Stories. We made collages to tell the story of The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch.

We made pirate ships that can sail the Seven Seas.

We have been looking at 3D shapes. We used our best problem solving skills to make a cube crate to transport the bear family to a new zoo.

We are learning about different types of materials. We have been investigating objects and sorting them according to what they are made from.

 

Spring Term in Yellow Class

We had a great term in Yellow Class term learning all about Africa.   We  enjoyed tasting different types of African fruits, learnt an African dance, dressed up in African clothes and made some amazing music on the African drums.  We learnt Swahili by singing the "Jambo" song, which is a traditional song from Kenya.  Jambo means "hello".  We love the song, it makes us feel very happy.  Scroll down and you can sing along.

 

We have also learnt about plants and trees and how they grow. We are now growing some vegetables of our own. 

As we worked so hard last term, we had a very special end of term treat. Mrs Palmer brought in her wonderful pets for us to cuddle. Some were more cuddly than others!

We learnt about Van Gogh. We created our own version of Sunflowers.

We had so much fun in our Hula Hoop workshop.

Mrs Rees from Churchill Academy taught us a dance based on plants growing and the seasons.

A Day on the Farm

 

We had a wonderful day at Lowerstock Farm with Farmer Nick and Liz.  In the morning we learnt all about the trees in the wood.  We identified the different types of trees by feeling the bark on the trunks and looking at the leaves. We also looked at the flowers and seeds from some trees. Then we planted broad beans and onions - we are hoping the beans we planted will grow in our school garden when they are big enough.  After a picnic lunch we met the cows and then we had great fun on the tractor and trailer ride.  We went to the grain store and watched a rat playing on the beam. Finally, we went to see the chickens and all stroked Mary, the hen.  Before returning to school we had a great time playing in the woods.  Farmer Nick said we were brilliant - so did Mrs Axton! 

Red Nose Day Fun!

We read 'Oliver's Vegetables'. We made puppet theatres and retold the story using puppets.

Mr Sapsford, a tree warden, came to talk to us about the trees in spring. We looked at lots of trees and their different buds.

We looked closely at plants. We investigated daffodils and found all the different parts of the flower.

We had such fun on World Book Day. Can you spot all the book characters?

We enjoyed sharing our favourite books with our Reading Buddies in Year 4.

Welcome to Yellow Class!

 

We have had a fantastic start to the school year and have settled well into Yellow Class. In the first two weeks we performed the poem 'A Little Nut Tree' by Roald Dahl in assembly to the rest of the school and to parents. We learnt the poem really quickly - Mrs Crawshaw and Mrs Axton were so proud of us. To celebrate Roald Dahls birthday we have been looking at the story of Fantastic Mr Fox which we are enjoying immensely. We had a fantastic WOW day at the start of term 1 where we mixed different potions together in honour of George's Marvellous Medicine!

 

We have been doing lots of work looking at each of the characters from Fantastic Mr Fox and thinking of different descriptive words. We have been working really hard with our letter formation and handwriting which you can see in our character profiles.

 

We have also been looking at the 4 different seasons and have created a fantastic display in our classroom - come and have a look!
