Clockwork

In our English lessons we have been reading Clockwork by Philip Pullman and listening to the audio book. This is an incredibly exciting and scary book, but we have really enjoyed reading it…

Writing At Oxford Grove

This year at Oxford Grove, we are making writing a top priority. Here is an example of one of the poem’s we have written this week based on ‘The River Song’ by Brian Patten. We changed the similes and used a thesaurus to change the vocabulary choices. We felt very proud of our efforts.

We have been working hard to ensure we always show impeccable behaviour at our school, particularly on our school yard 🙂

Miss Moore was very pleased with us last week and thinks our lining up has been really good with clear person spaces in between each child! Well done!

We need to keep this up Year 4! Coach Matt has even commented on our behaviour on the field, he thinks we have been playing together really well and is impressed! Lets ensure next week is the same 🙂

What do you enjoy the most about your playtime?

Our School Aims!

Our school ethos and aims are very important and they are at the centre of everything we do 🙂

As part of our school aims, we promote an inclusive, happy and safe environment for all our children. Last week, we have been learning about Hinduism in our R.E lesson and finding out all about Puja! During the lesson we thought about how this linked to our school aims. We know that this links to leaning about the beliefs and values of different religions and cultures in order to understand and show respect. We know that our school is so lucky and special because we can use our range of religions and beliefs to learn from each other! 

Can you find our school aims on our fantastic website? Miss Stockton x

Eid celebrations!

 

In Year 4 we have lots of children who celebrate Eid. Eid al-Fitr is the Muslim festival that marks the end of the fast of Ramadan. Eid al-Fitr means ‘The Festival of Breaking of the Fast’. On Friday, we learnt more about this celebration and also thought about how other religions celebrate important festivals or events. We shared how some of our friends in Year 4 celebrated Eid over the weekend. We decorated and designed different henna tattoos on printed hands 🙂

What did you and your family do to celebrate Eid? What other religious occasions do you celebrate?

Year 4’s trip to 7 Acres!

Today Year 4 have visited the 7 Acres Nature Reserve to find out more about different types of habitats and what wildlife thrives in our local area! We started our morning by looking at the wet areas including a river and a pond. Adam showed us how to use our nets to catch the animals carefully. We then took them back to our group whose job it was to classify them and find out what they were! One group even managed to catch some small fish! After lunch, we went to the woodland and grassland. We compared all of the habitats and the different types of creatures that lived there. We learnt lots of amazing facts about birds and bugs! We also made some human food chains using some of the insects and creatures that we found.

What insects and creatures did your group find?

What did you learn?

What was your favourite habitat to explore?

Here are some pictures from the day:
