Religious Education and Creation.
Learning about Christian beliefs are important and here we can see clay work inspired by the bible story taken from Genesis which explains how God made our wonderful earth.
Matisse at The Qube.
We all had a wonderful experience when we visited the Qube in Oswestry. We looked around the gallery and soon discovered the amazing work of Artist, Matisse. It was wonderful to see the use of scissors and coloured paper to creat images. Later we used modern technology through stop start animation to create our own moving images inspired by Matisse.
Rehearsing Pirates !
As part of a wonderful combined project with St. Martins we began learning the songs that would be performed in December. This is a fun and exciting way to collaborate with other schools whilst also singing and learning.
Music with Shropshire Music Service.
It might look easy but producing a note on a clarinet and flute is harder than you think. Today we began the process of choosing the instrument we will be learning to play.
Transition with St. Martins School.
Moving on to high school is an important part of getting older. It can be a difficult decision and stressful time. Today, Mrs. Jones came to talk to all of class 4 about the opportunities St. Martins High School can offer.
Maths in Action.
Each week we focus on applications of place value and the four rules of number. Using a weekly test we talk about strategies used before we mark our work. Each week we strive to get our questions correct so we can move on to the next set of more demanding questions. Working together helps each of us to become more proficient and efficient in the way we solve problems.
It is not just about turning up for school and then going home but about the contribution each one of us makes. Every year we continue to strive for an eco friendly approach to waste management which includes recycling and reducing the amount of rubbish. After a well fought battle and a democratic process a team from class 4 was chosen. Good luck guys and remember it is everyone's responsibility to look after our planet.
Maths Challenge at Oswestry School
We were delighted to attend a wonderful morning of maths challenges organised by Oswestry School. Each year this annual event provides opportunities for pupils to engage in problem solving puzzles whilst also competing against other primary schools.
Pirates of the Curry Bean!
It was a pleasure to join with St. Martins School for an exciting and fun day of Arts and Drama. Class 4 pupils joined with other local schools for an action packed opportunity to be involved with a performance of Pirates of the Curry Bean! It was great to be able to work alongside other pupils and a huge thank you to all of St. Martins school for organising and inviting us. Throughout the day pupils were involved in singing, acting and art. Great fun and great learning !
Electricity and Circuits.
We began by looking at a wonderful Star Wars electronic lab brought in by one of our hard-working year 6. After we began investigating circuits of our using different wires, batteries and components.
Shropshire Music Service.
wow, class 4 are in for a real treat by learning either the flute or clarinet. Each week we have an hour long input by Shropshire Music Service. Here is a little taster of what we have begun to do with our teacher.
Creation in Class 4.
In Reflection Thursday we began the process of thinking about creation. Having time to work together and perform in groups is so important. Here we can see groups of pupils using drama to retell their understanding of the work of God.
A wonderful gesture of kindness was received in class 4 with a set of interactive Bibles, donated by the Mothers Union.
Books are always such fun to engage in and this new set tells the stories of the Bible using fun cartoon illustrations and speech bubbles.
