24th March - Easter Egg Competition
Taking part in this year's Easter Egg competition, the children had a wonderful time colouring, painting and bringing their egg designs to life.
15th March - Planting Knowledge
This half term, the year 4 children have been learning all about the parts of a plant and flower in science. They had a fabulous lesson labelling each of the different components and learning all about their different functions. They then became scientists and dissected their own flowers, sorting and labelling the different sections. The children have now learned all about the life cycle of flowering plants where they drew and labelled wonderful diagrams. They then found out all about different ways that seeds are dispersed and made their own information posters.
12th March - World Book Day
The children had a wonderful time celebrating World Book Day. This year, they had the opportunity to design and create their very own t-shirts. They added drawings of their favourite books, characters and authors. The children all had a fantastic day showing off their amazing t-shirts.
8th March - The Dot
To help welcome all of the children back into school, we all read an mazing picture book called The Dot written by Peter Reynolds. The book tells the story of a little girl called Vashti who has no self confidence in her own drawing abilities. She is asked by her teacher to 'make a mark' on her page. The teacher then encourages her by displaying Vashti's dot on on the wall. Vashti then realises that she can do better than her first dot and her confidence grows. The children wrote their own sequels to The Dot to tell the story of what they think might come next. They also looked at how everyone in individual by creating wonderfully colourful plate dots. Every child design and made their own dot for our school display.
