Inspired to be our best.....

Year 4

Thank you to all the families in my class for all the cards, presents and good wishes you have sent to my husband and I.  It made the build up to my wedding very special.

A Massive Thank you!

A massive thank you from Miss Dyer to all the parents and families of her Year 4 class!

Harvest Poetry Slam

To build on our Harvest Mass celebrations, our Year 3,4, 5 and 6 classes got together to have an inter-house poetry slam. The children grouped together in their houses and worked in teams  to write a harvest themed poem. We then got together and performed our poems. It was great to have Year 2 join us for our performances and we got to hear some great poems that they had been reading! 

ART attack!

We are getting ready for our upcoming trip to the Sheldonian theatre - working with pencil, pastels and ink...take a closer look.

 

Exciting Times in Year 4 - We are heading out and about! 

We have really enjoyed making Maths fun! 
Miss Dyer saw an idea on Twitter and decided it would be a great way of helping us learn about partitioning.  As a class, we loved exploring and creating lots of different numbers.  Miss Dyer was extremely proud of the discussions we had and our great use of mathematical vocabulary!

Building Bonanza 

Over this term, all of our KS2 classes will be taking part in a series of building challenges. They will be split into mixed teams and sent off on a construction mission. Have a look at the photos to see how they got on!

Father David is off to Malawi with our letters! 
 
We wrote letters to the children in Chisoyo School telling them about our school and asked them some questions about theirs.  We can't wait to hear back from them to see what life in like in Africa.
Welcome back and welcome to construction!
Year 4 absolutely smashed the Marshmallow Challenge - we are SO proud!  
The teachers attempted to build a tower out of spaghetti, string and tape which would hold a large marshmallow on top but failed miserably.  Then Year 5 had a go and again failed!  We were up the STEM challenge and can successfully say we built the tallest tower to date!  We also inspired Year 2 to have a go and for Year 5 to have another go (so they could learn from their mistakes!)
