Friendship

In Year 4 we decided that we should have a circle time around friendship. We started off discussing what a friend is and how friends should treat each other. After hearing many lovely answers we then moved on to discussing how friends should not behave towards each other. Many different things were bought up and as a class we agreed with most things that were mentioned. Friendship is something we are working really hard on in Year 4 at the moment and the children have shown that they know how important it is to be a good friend and treat friends in the right way.

Online risks

As part of anti-bullying week Year 4 have been discussing online safety. They watched a number of short clips all based around the adventures of Kara, Winston and the SMART Crew. After each clip the class shared their thoughts about what they had just watched. Here are some of their ideas below:

Democracy

In PSHE today Year 4 focused on the term democracy. We learnt that demos means people and kratos means power or rule. Together this created the word democracy which year 4 discovered means rule by the people.

We started looking at how makes decisions in the UK and how decisions are made. We discussed how when you are 18 or older you are able to vote and can go to a polling station to make your vote. We also talked about MP’s, the priminister and different parties.

The final question I had for year 4 was if you were in charge, what would you change?

We had lots of lovely responses to this question including giving homeless people houses to live in, making sure all of the bins are collected by the bin men and many more.

Parliament

In PSHE, Year 4 have been looking at Parliament and investigating how laws are made. The children found out all about the UK Parliament and other assemblies in the United Kingdom. They also looked at what role Parliament has in the country as well as the role the Government has.

Class Charter

Near the beginning of Year 4, Robins discussed what class rules are and why we have them. They were able to list many different class rules but we decided to create a set that are personal to our class.

We thought we would share these with you so that you know what we are aiming for in Year 4:

Check-In

Year 4 started their week with a check in again.

Once again we shared our lovely weekends telling the class about walking their pet dogs, having sleepovers and enjoying family time.

Some lovely words were used…
Joey felt “Clever” this morning!
Yusif was “Excited about maths”
What a wonderful way to start the week.

Check-In

Year 4 started their morning with a check in. It’s always nice to share news and how we feel.
We have had some lovely words on how we feel like “spectacular” and “excited”.

Some of the children had some adventures over the weekend…like going to the Safari Park and meeting up with family and friends.

Lots of children were excited about upcoming birthdays too.
We shared our news and got ready to work.

A prefect start to the week for Robins. Well done.

Smarties get Smarties!

The smarties in Year 4 have all received some smarties!

Bells Farm are helping raise money for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. They are eating a tube of Smarties (it’s a tough job but someone has to do it!) and then filling the tube with spare change.

All the money collected will go towards helping the hospital make patients, who are hospitalised over Christmas, a little happier in the festive season.

Money will go towards Christmas trees on wards, free TV on Christmas Day as well as free parking for all visitors to the hospital on Christmas day. A worthy cause as it is a time of giving, sharing and being kind to all.

I’m sure the children won’t need much help in finishing the Smarties, but please help them fill their tube with any spare pennies and change.

All tubes can then be brought in to school before they are delivered to the hospital.

Well done all you Year 4 smarties… get eating and filling.
