Class Blog for Class 4

  of 7   Next    

Week ending Friday 18th June 2021 

We’ve had another busy week in Class 4.

This week in music, we continued to improved our confidence on the keyboards. The children reflected on their current ability and all said that they feel they have improved during the sessions so far : ) We also competed against each other in a music, football quiz!

 

In our outdoor session this week, we painted our outdoor seating area. The seats are looking extremely colourful. We have reds, greens, blues, and pinks! I can’t wait for the finishing touches to be added : )

 

During our English lessons this week, we started a new learning journey focused on newspaper reports. When the children arrived to school on Monday after their 3 day weekend, there was a lot of rubbish again around the school grounds- even in our new seating area. The children came up with the idea of writing a newspaper report about the littering in the hope that we can discourage this mindless act. They learnt about the key features of newspaper reports; they developed their initial ideas of what information would be needed in the report; they researched facts and figures about littering and they started interviewing key people in our investigation. To our surprise, on Friday morning, we got sent a video of a wild visitor in our new seating area from the evening before. The children are now even more determined to keep our school environment free of litter to protect the wildlife. We hope to include the wild visitor in our report!

In our maths lessons this week, we improved our understanding of angles on a straight line and around a point. We improved our confidence with protractors, and we learnt how to calculate missing angles. Some children also learnt about 2d shapes and their properties.

 

In our RE lesson, we learnt about the qualities needed to help in certain situations. We looked at people we deemed to be good leaders and not so good leaders and compared and contrasted their characteristics. We then compared these to the qualities Christians see in Jesus. The children then designed their own leader using the qualities previously discussed and explained how the qualities would be good in certain situations.   

 

During PE, we started to build our running stamina. We enjoyed different running games which saw us run competitively. We also looked at our overarm throwing technique and tried to improve the distance that we could throw a tennis ball. 

 

You will have seen from the letter that was emailed out about our ‘Wear it Wild’ day on Wednesday 23rdJune. This was an idea proposed to the school council by Class 3 to raise money for the whole school to adopt an endangered animal. The school council asked their classes what they thought, and everyone was so excited about the idea, so it is going ahead on Wednesday. Bring a £1 donation and dress up like a wild animal, for example, you could come to school with your face painted, wear animal patterns, a t-shirt with a wild animal on or be completely in disguise as a wild animal. 
 

Homework

I have set homework for this week on both Mathletics and Spelling Shed. There is also the new homework grid in the homework books that we had at school. Please could I ask that all homework books are returned by Thursday so that the new grid can be glued into those books that I didn’t receive last week and so I can mark any homework and have it returned by Friday!

 

Here are a few reminders about each week: 

• Forest school will be on a Tuesday afternoon- please wear appropriate clothes into school each week. We will be finishing off our painting so older clothes would be best!!

• Bring or wear trainers into school for PE on a Friday afternoon

• We have been lucky with the hot, sunny weather and we have been outside more for learning activities and have also been eating lunch outside. Please apply sun cream before school each day and I know some children are already bringing a hat, it may be something that others want to consider, thank you. 

• Homework books to be returned by Thursday please

Have a wonderful weekend

Week ending Friday 10th June 2021 

Hello everyone,

We’ve had a busy start to Summer 2 in Class 4.

Our outdoor session saw us finish the building stages of our seating area! We’re proud of what we have built! We sanded and started painting the seats in a variety of different colours. We are extremely grateful to Paul Richardson at Jewson’s for responding to the letter that the children wrote, asking for support with building and decorating supplies for the area! He was extremely kind with donations- upwards of £150! With the amount of screws, paint, paintbrushes, sandpaper and varnish provided, we also had enough supplies to make and decorate footstools/tables as well. We hope to look at how we can add plants to the area too!

On Tuesday, in our outdoor session this coming week, we hope to finish the painting of the seats and footstools/tables so painting clothes would be very useful as the outdoor paint has proven to be rather runny!

 

Another highlight of our week has been turning our attention to climate action day and the G7 happening in our county! We learnt about what the G7 is and what they were doing! We also enjoyed reading some of Ellie Jackson’s books. One of our favourites was ‘Hunter’s Icy Adventure’. We based our science lesson on this book which is about global warming and the effects it is having. In the science lesson, we planned and carried out an experiment- we predicted how fast ice would melt under certain conditions. Because we actually carried the experiment out on a cold day, the results that we gathered weren’t as we thought, compared to the predictions that we made with our understanding of global warming. We were able to discuss why our results weren’t as we hypothesised and made plans to carry out the experiment in different conditions to better imitate that of global warming. We also discussed how we could make our next experiment fairer, taking into consideration the difficulties that arose in our first attempt.

 

During our English lessons this week, we finished writing up the final drafts of our leaflets based on the islands that the children created. They’ve done a great job of creating eye catching leaflets to persuade people to visit their islands. There was such a broad variety of ideas all based on different themes. From gaming to gummy bears; to cats and haunted hostels; from horses to nature retreats. See the uploads for a few examples.

In Maths, the children have been starting to learn about geometry. We recapped key vocabulary based on angles and started to learn how to use protractors to measure angles accurately.
 

Homework

Could I please have all homework books brought into school this week. I will then make sure the children have the new topic grid ready for Friday.

 

Here are a few reminders about each week: 

• Forest school will be on a Tuesday afternoon- please wear appropriate clothes into school each week. This week we hope to finish painting our

• Bring some trainers into school for outdoor physical exercise activities on a Friday afternoon

• We have been lucky with the hot, sunny weather and we have been outside more for learning activities and have also been eating lunch outside. Please apply sun cream before school each day and I know some children are already bringing a hat, it may be something that others want to consider, thank you.

Year 6 Hoodies!

It's that time of year where our lovely FOPS have offered to buy our year 6 leavers a hoodie each in celebration of their time at our school! 

The sizes are in the pictures to the left. Yesterday the children had a chance to see an adult small size so they might have some idea their self on the size they might like. 

Please could year 6 parents email me with the size they would like by Tuesday 8th of June. 

Have a great half term!

Week ending Friday 21st May 2021  

Hello everyone,

Another wet and windy week! We’ve managed to make the most of the weather where possible!

In our English lessons, the children helped devise our next learning journey. Our focus until half term is persuasive adverts. The children have learnt the key features of this type of text and have started to plan their writing. They each designed their own island which they will be writing a persuasive leaflet about to encourage people to visit. Their ideas vary from animal focused islands, gamer islands, thrill seeker islands to even islands with dinosaurs on! The children noticed that their islands would have different people interested in going and therefore part of our learning has been focused on the audience of their writing.

During our maths lessons, we have been learning how to find fractions of amounts. Some children have been focused on finding unit fractions of amounts with others progressing onto finding non-unit fractions of amounts.  In these lessons, we have subsequently been practising our division and multiplication written methods.  

In our science lesson this week, the children continued learning about light. They worked scientifically to investigate how to make the most and least amount of shadows with just their torch placement. They also tested different materials to see whether they cast dark shadows; this helped reinforce their vocabulary work focusing on the words, opaque, translucent and transparent.

During our PE lesson, we started to learn about the mechanics of running. We took part in different relay races which also helped us focus on being good sports persons showing positive sporting behaviours.

During our music lesson with Mrs Butlin, we practised singing a song which included some rap! We have been working on using the correct fingering on the keyboards and learning to read staff notation.  

The children all designed a stamp for the Royal Mail Heroes competition; it was a great chance for us to reflect on the past year and discuss who we feel have played an important role. The children took great care and pride over these pictures and they should be extremely proud of their efforts.

In our outdoor learning time, we had hoped to get the large majority of our outdoor seating area built however the weather was not kind to us! Instead, we hope this coming Tuesday will allow us to get building! In our outdoor time this week, we learnt about Mosques and how in Islam it is disrespectful to have artwork of Allah; instead Mosques are decorated with intricate patterns and designs. The children tried to create their own intricate designs using outdoor resources. I felt they did a great job especially with the weather that we had on Tuesday!

 

Homework

I have set homework for this week on both Mathletics and Spelling Shed, please continue to sign at the bottom of the homework grid in your child’s pink book and return homework books to class by Thursday this week

 

 

Here are a few reminders about each week:

Week ending Friday 14th May 2021 

Another busy week in Class 4. Unfortunately, the weather impeded our plans to build our pallet seating area, but we did take down part of a fence outside our classroom to prepare the area. We also made a great start on our class reading stools. The children designed their stool in groups of 5/6; they worked together to combine their ideas, drew these ideas on the stools and started to paint them together. They discussed what good teamwork looks like and planned how they would work collaboratively- I was pleased with how well they worked with each other. We hope to start building our pallet seating this week- any more pallets anyone has lying around, could always be put to good use : )  

During our English lessons this week, we have had a big focus on speech punctuation. The children have all improved their understanding, whether that by knowing where to place the inverted commas, writing a new line for a new speaker, improving their use of extra speech punctuation or learning how to advance the action and convey character mood with their use of speech.

In our Maths lessons, the children have continued their focus on fractions. Some children have been learning how to make the whole and place fractions on a number; whilst others have been learning about multiplying and dividing fractions by integers, mixed numbers and other proper fractions.

During our science lesson, the children explored how light is reflected. They learnt about the law of reflection, the incident ray, the reflection ray and the angles of incidence and reflection. They drew labelled diagrams to show their findings.

In our religious education lesson, the children developed their understanding of what it means to be a Muslim in Britain today. They used facts from video clips to create an information page.

During our music lesson, we learnt more about musical notes. We enjoyed learning about the lengths of crochets, minims and quavers and trying to identify them in different pieces of music.

We enjoyed our art lesson, where we learnt about street art. We learnt about different types of street art then focused on graffiti. We used an online program to explore different graffiti fonts and designs and then improved our drawing skills by experimenting with colour pencil shading to design our own pieces of graffiti based on the art we created online.

In our P.E lesson, we enjoyed using the iPads to help us improve our ability to find space. In groups, we took it in turns to film 3 group members trying to find space to receive the ball. We also used the footage to help us improve our footwork. 

This week was Mental Health Awareness Week; Miss Edwards shared a brilliant story with us online on Teams about wellbeing and we ended the week with an exciting wellbeing ‘snowball’ fight. The children noted down what makes them a good friend and what makes them unique and special. They then scrunched up the paper turning them into ‘snowballs’. After the snowball throwing, the children each unravelled one snowball and read the qualities and characteristics that were written on it. As a class, we then tried to uncover who that piece of paper belonged to. The children said it helped them think about themselves and what makes them special, learn more about their classmates and listen thoughtfully to each other.

Stamp competition
In school the children will be designing stamps for the Royal Mail's heroes stamp competition. If you would like us to enter your child's entry into the national competition, please send back the permission slip your child should have brought home last week.

Week ending Friday 7th May 2021  

Hello everyone,

 

We’ve had another busy week in Class 4 even though it was only 4 days!

 

During our English lessons this week, we have had a big focus on punctuation. After reminding ourselves where full stops and capital letters need to be used, we learnt more about semicolons and their uses. We also learnt about the multiple uses of commas and their functions. The children used commas in lists, after fronted adverbials, to separate out clauses and for clarity- to avoid ambiguity. They wrote their flashback narratives; I was very impressed (yet a little disturbed) by their interesting storylines! Turns out, a lot of our class, enjoy writing frightening stories!  

In Maths this week, we have improved our understanding of fractions. Some children have improved their ability to add and subtract fractions whilst others moved to multiplying fractions. We solved problems in different contexts to help apply our understanding.

 

For our outdoor learning lesson, we explored different pallet seating area layouts ready for us to start building them next week. We tried to decide on a layout the whole class would agree on! We also prepared our log stalls ready for a makeover! We continued our design in our design technology lesson, where we also planned and wrote a letter to a local building supplier to ask for support with resources to help us with this project : ) We are excided to hear a response and get this project underway! 

 

In our geography lesson, we started by assessing our understanding of counties around Great Britain. We built on this knowledge and learnt locations of counties around Great Britain, including what the county is well-known for, key geographical and topographic features and the county’s land use. Some of us also drew a sketch map of the county we were focusing on.

 

During our religious education lesson, we improved our understanding of Islam and how Muslims live.  We learnt a lot of information and will build on this in the coming weeks.


During our PE lesson, we learnt and practised three types of passes in netball and improved on our footwork.

 

Football Club Next week, on Tuesday, we will be starting a football skills and drills weekly club. Mrs McLaren and I will be leading the sessions for year 3/ 4 and year 5/6. The two class bubbles will be kept separate throughout. Please keep an eye out for the permission slip on Monday. Please note: this club will only need trainers/astro turf boots as we will be building on football skills this half term. As there will be no changing  needed for this club it will finish at 4pm. 

We are planning to offer other clubs too- please watch this space.


Homework: 

It was great to go onto Mathletics and Spelling Shed to see that most of the children had completed some or all of their homework. We also had a wonderful poster about Great Britain, some fabulous flag designs and two informative PowerPoints about places in Great Britain.

I have set homework for this week on both Mathletics and Spelling Shed, please continue to sign at the bottom of the homework grid in your child’s pink book and return homework books to class on Thursday each week

Week ending Friday 30th April 2021  

Wow! This week seems to have come and gone like a flash, yet there has been so many varied learning opportunities and achievements throughout!

Firstly, an absolutely massive congratulations and well done to Ruby for her charity bike ride efforts over the month of April. Every single day, rain or shine, she cycled at least 4 miles to help raise money for the Looe Lifeboat Station. Her current amount has reached over £2,000! Some of you may have spotted her on BBC Spotlight more than once and she was also mentioned on the radio too! We enjoyed watching the clip of her in class on Friday and were all impressed with her perseverance and her efforts throughout the whole month, especially as the fundraising was all her own idea. On Friday evening, she was interviewed live for Spotlight as she completed the final ride of her challenge. What an incredible achievement Ruby- Well done! You should be extremely proud of yourself.

A hug THANK YOU for the quick response to my request to the children for pallets for their design technology seating project! Within 48 hours of merely mentioning it to the children, we had over 12 pallets delivered : ) Your support in projects like this are truly appreciated. Thanks again.

In our English lesson this week, the children learnt about the key features of flashbacks and tried to find them within text examples. They checked whether all the examples included the key features and investigated the tense of the writing throughout. They noticed any patterns with the tense as the writing switches from the original story compared with during the flashback section, which they then tried to replicate within their own flashback examples.

During our math lessons all children became more confident with fractions. Some children worked on comparing and ordering fractions from the same denominator whilst others learnt how to change the denominator to help compare, order and add and subtract fractions.

In our French lesson, the children learnt food names in French. They then spoke to a partner about their likes/dislikes of certain foods in French. They practised their pronunciation and intonation and joined in with a song to help them ask and answer questions about foods that they eat at school. The children listened to others and started to understand what was being said when they were having a conversation in French.    

In our geography lesson, after researching human and physical features, the children made examples using junk modelling to add to our classroom display. They had to locate which country their example was from and explain which cities it was near. They noticed the difference between the types of geographical features, its position in Great Britain and discussed their thoughts of why this might be.

During our science lesson, the children explored how light travels in a straight line and how light is reflected into our eyes. They created a model to represent their learning and applied their understanding to different situations.

Our PSHE focus this half term is on relationships. The children used their outdoor learning lesson to build on their friendships; they discussed what it means to be a good friend and what to do when people don’t agree in different situations. Some children decided to play a large game of Kwik cricket to build on their teamwork skills and to work through the challenges associated with competitive games.

During the outdoor session, children also started preparing the stools for part of our outdoor seating area. The children carried out a class survey to see what the majority of them wanted from this outdoor seating area to help inform their planning and the buildings stages. They also researched what is currently on the market in terms of outdoor pallet seating and are now really excited to continue this project over the coming weeks.

Homework: on Friday we sent homework books home with the children which contain a new homework grid linked to our topic. You will also find on the front cover your child’s login details for TT Rockstars, Mathletics and Spelling Shed. As explained at the top of the topic grid, your child will be set tasks on Mathletics and Spelling Shed each week. The children are all familiar with logging on and completing tasks on these apps as we have used them in school since the children returned in March. In addition, we would encourage children to continue to use TT Rockstars to practise their recall and fluency of times tables. We also expect your child to read at home throughout the week and have this signed in their reading record. Please record homework by initialling in the table at the bottom of the homework grid when your child has completed their spelling and maths homework and return homework books to class on Thursday each week. It has been great to already award Mathletics certificates to 2 of the children and I hope to award many more each week. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. 

 

Here are a few reminders for the week: 

• Forest school will be on a Tuesday afternoon (including the 4th of May)- please wear appropriate clothes into school each week.  

• Bring some trainers into school for outdoor physical exercise activities on a Friday afternoon

• We have been lucky with the hot, sunny weather and we have been outside more for learning activities and have also had the opportunity of eating lunch outside. Please apply sun cream before school each day and I know some children are already bringing a hat, it may be something that others want to consider, thank you.

Week ending Friday 23rd April 2021 

Hello everyone,

Welcome to the summer term! We’ve had a very busy start to term!

This week, we launched our topic, ‘What makes Britain Great?’ We started by annotating a blank map of Great Britain to see what we currently know about the island that we live on. We marked on the map any countries, counties or cities (and Pelynt) that we already and tried to show where they are located. We’ll refer back to this map at the end of our topic so we can all see the progress made after the learning!

During our geography lesson, we learnt the difference between Great Britain and the United Kingdom and which countries make up both. We also learnt about the different terms we will be using over the coming weeks and we started to learn about key cities and their location in Great Britain.

On Wednesday, the children will be researching human and physical geographical features and landmarks within Great Britain. Later in the week, will have the chance to ‘junk model’ these. If you have any recycling at home that you think would be useful, could these items be brought in at the beginning of the week. For example, the children may want to attempt to build, The London Eye, Stonehenge, Exeter Cathedral or Smeaton Tower.


This week, we started our new writing topic which is based on a dream film clip. The children will be learning how to include a flashback within their stories. We started by recapping different story genres and by exploring and roleplaying different story openings. A lot of the children said they would enjoy writing a slightly darker, scary style of story so to keep interest, I have left the genre of our narratives open for the children to take in their own direction. I don't know whether to be excited or scared for the finished stories!   

During maths, the children have been improving their understanding of fractions. We have covered equivalent fractions and converting between improper and mixed number fractions at different levels of understanding. 

To celebrate World Earth Day on Thursday, we recapped the story of ‘Greta and the Giants’, discussed how we could help our planet including our local surroundings and made our own nature mandalas with Miss Edwards.

Here are a few reminders about each week:

• Forest school will be on a Tuesday afternoon- please wear appropriate clothes into school each week.
• Bring some trainers into school for outdoor physical exercise activities on a Friday afternoon.
• We have been lucky with the hot, sunny weather and we have been outside more for learning activities an some of us have also been eating lunch outside. Please apply sun cream before school each day and I know some children are already bringing a hat, it may be something that others want to consider, thank you.
• Homework will be set this week; please can you return your pink homework books to school by Tuesday so that these can be updated and prepared to be sent back home on Friday with details of your homework.

I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend and I will see you on Monday

Week ending Friday 26th March 2021 

Hi everyone,

I hope you have all had a great weekend; we’ve had another busy week in Class 4.

At the beginning of the week, we enjoyed our music lesson where we have been learning the different elements to a keyboard. We are all thoroughly looking forward to our next lesson with Mrs Butlin.  

During our English lessons this week, we have been continuing our learning about instructions; we learnt to improve our writing by adding description, improving our sentence structure, adding advanced punctuation and by using interesting word choices. The children then wrote their instructions using their best presentation- these are looking great and the finished pieces will be placed out in forest school for the younger children in school to read and maybe follow to make their own outdoor structure.   

In our maths lessons, the children have been continuing their learning about measurement. Some children focused on metric mass measures; others focused converting measures from imperial to metric and vice versa. Later in the week, all children focused on capacity and they made their own ‘Beetle Juice’ drinks using measuring jugs to measure out different amounts of liquid; they then tried to convert millilitres to litres and to fluid ounces too. The children also started to learn about scaling.

In our D.T lesson, the children tried to apply their understanding of scaling to make 3, scaled models. They enjoyed making models of their own choice out of clay, but found recreating the detail on all 3 models, whilst trying to keep the measurements accurate, very challenging.

We also tried to apply our scaling understanding in our outdoor session, where we tried to make a scaled model using sticks. During this session, we also continued our focus on outdoor and adventurous activities where we have been learning to take part in competitive games whilst having positive sporting attitudes towards each other.  

Our forest school session this week, will be on Tuesday afternoon. If children would like to, they can come into school on Tuesday wearing their forest school clothes instead of uniform. 

 

Don’t forget to bring your decorated egg in on Wednesday 31st March if you want to enter the competition. Miss Edwards spoke about this in our assembly on Friday, she also sent a letter via email which provides more information.

Things to remember for next week:

*Wear Forest school clothes into school on Tuesday.

*Bring in decorated egg for competition on Wednesday.

*Last day of term is Thursday 1st April. We return to school on Monday 19th April.

Week ending Friday 19th March 2021  


*See image gallery below for more photos*

Hello everyone

 

Thank you for your donations for Comic Relief on Friday; there was a fantastic array of outfits that the children came dressed in- from footballers with tutus on to horse riders and wizards.

 

As it is census day on Sunday 21st March, we learnt all about the census on Friday. Some of us made tally charts, which we then turned into bar charts of our class data, whilst others of us made a scatter graph of class data. We also compared Pelynt’s population between 2001 and 2011 and made predictions for this year’s census along with justifying our thoughts.  

 

We all thoroughly enjoyed our music lesson on Monday, where we were taking part in some musical activities and warm ups before we start our weekly keyboard skills lessons every Monday starting from tomorrow. The children were all really excited about starting these lessons.   

This week we learnt about scarab beetles and their significance in ancient Egyptian times. We designed our own scarab beetle, which we later made out of clay; we learnt about Barbra Hepworth and Henry Moore, famous sculptors to inspire our creations. Next week, we will learn about different finishes on sculptures when we add the finishing touches to our own creations.

 

In maths, we were learning about measurement. The children identified as many different types of measurement as they could and their units. They all took part in practical activities where they had to firstly estimate lengths and distances, then measure accurately and convert between mm, cm, m and km. Some children also started to learn about converting between imperial measures too.

In our English lessons this week, we have been focusing on instruction writing. On Monday, at first, the children helped improve basic instructions as they were getting misinterpreted- with jam getting spread everywhere and a complete mess being made. The children then wrote their own instructions in pairs and followed them literally. Later in the week, the children made their own outdoor shelters, which they will be writing instructions for this week.

Currently, we do not have a set Forest School time so could I please ask that children bring in wellies or suitable outdoor shoes that they can wear for our outdoor learning, they can be left in school on their peg or on our class shoe rack. We aim to be outside as much as possible- last week we took part in physical activities like outdoor relays, which we hope to do again during the week ahead, so please could  trainers be on hand throughout the week too. If children would like to, they can come into school on Tuesday this week wearing their forest school clothes instead of uniform. 

This week, keep a look out for Mathletics and Spelling Shed logins which your child will come home with. We have started to use these learning tools in school to support our learning and in time, they will be used for setting homework tasks alongside TT Rockstars. When you receive them, there is currently no expectation that anything needs to be completed but should they wish to, they can logon and explore. If you have any questions about this please feel free to ask.

Reminders for this week:

*Tuesday option to wear forest school clothes into school, instead of uniform.
