Today, we did Music with Mrs Hudson. We were learning about the rhythm and the beat. The rhythm is a pattern of beats and the beat is steady, it never changes. Our song was called Sticks and we used tap sticks for the beat. We did another song which was a Spanish song. There was lots of rhythm and beats in this song. It was really fun to sing it with my friend.
What do you like about Music?
This week, everybody has had the opportunity to work with an artist! Tim worked with all of the classes to create a whole school sculpture. We had to use tissue and glue to cover the bamboo structure. We then used coloured tissue paper to decorate it.
What did you enjoy about working with the artist?
The sculpture looks beautiful in our computing suite. Well Done Year 4!
Today we experienced an amazing workshop with A-Life! We were in groups of four and went from table to table that were all about healthy living. We learnt what happens when you have too much sugary things like cola and pizza. Your teeth rot when you have too much sugar. Did you know that more than half of your body is made out water? Also, you should drink 6 to 8 glasses of water a day! In the afternoon, we are going to do P.E. with A-Life. I’m so excited!
Today Year 4 had their first fencing and archery club. It has been organised by Miss Stockton and it is a brand new club for Oxford Grove! What is fencing? What is archery? Did you enjoy this new club Year 4?
Over the last week, Year 4 have been working together in buddies! We have helped each other to improve our mental maths methods and times table facts.
Did you enjoy working with your buddy?
What did you help each other with?
In Year 4 we have been learning all about the earth, volcanoes and earthquakes.
We have researched and found out lots of information about the volcanoes that are in Italy. Can you remember any of them?
We have also produced some great information texts about volcanoes and earthquakes. What happens when there is an earthquake?
I have linked the websites that we used from dk find out if you want to explore some more and complete the quiz as I know that you all really enjoyed this!
DK find out- Volcanoes
DK find out- Earthquakes
This term we have started our new Science topic which is all about sound! Last week we went on a sound walk around school to listen for lots of different sounds.
What sounds did you hear year 4?
We also did a sound quiz! We really enjoyed this!
Then, we learnt about different instruments and what you needed to do to get them to make a sound. We learnt that the instrument makes a vibration that travels through the air. This then enters our ear and we can hear the sound.
A few weeks ago we had a special visitor in school to assess us for the IQM (Inclusion Quality Mark). We received this award last year, but it has to be checked every year because we got the centre of excellence which is very impressive!
This visitor came into our PSHE lesson and I’m sure he was really impressed with what he saw.
Once again, we have been named a ‘Centre of Excellence’.
Well done Oxford Grove!
How do we make sure that everyone in our school is included?
