Today Year 4 looked at the power of advertising. We are bombarded by adverts on the television, when we are playing games online, newspapers, magazines, billboards on the streets, on the radio and in shops.
Year 4 discussed how they adverts influence what we buy. There are lots of ways that adverts and packaging make us want to buy the product. There are bright packages, enticing pictures, celebrity endorsements, special offers and catchy jingles.
Robins had a lot of fun recalling jingles and different adverts that they liked (even though they don’t buy or want that product). It is interesting to see the power of the advertising how these influence us by staying in our heads.
Some of the class’ favourites were Go Compare, McDonalds, Tesco’s, Coca Cola, to name just a few.
Can you recognise any of these famous brands just with small clues? Have a go…
Be thoughtful, what you do not want done to yourself, do not do to others. Confucius ( 551 B.C. – 479 B.C.)

The “Golden Rule” of Leviticus 19:18 was quoted by Jesus of Nazareth (Matthew 7:12; see also Luke 6:31) and described by him as the second great commandment.
Regardless of your faith or beliefs, in the UK, December is a time when people do good for one another. Our value for the month is thoughtfulness.Ava and Kenzie our super journalists decided they would investigate Robins views on the importance of thoughtfulness. They recorded the notes all by themselves and below are some of the highlights.
Anti-Bullying is a something Robins feel strongly about. We have been wearing our badges with pride and this morning our super journalist Ava collected found out what our class thought about the question, Why is Anti-Bullying Week important?. As she was asking around, she wrote down key thoughts.
Lilly W – Bullying is really rude. We need to stop it.
Pippa – It’s important as it helps us stop bullying.
Millie – It helps us be aware of what is bullying and how not to be a bully.
Dylan – It shows the importance of why people must not bully.
Zach– It’s important as it’s all about how to stop bullying.
Tanatswa – It’s an opportunity to celebrate differences, that’s why we wear the odd socks.
Paige – Reminds us that we have to know each other’s differences.
Year 4 started the week by putting on their badges with their antibullying slogans on. We looked at what it means- making sure we know that bullying is when there is persistent picking on someone. We all know that it is unacceptable and that we have to stand up for ourselves and others if we see it happening.
To show that we are all different and that we accept our differences we all came into school with odd socks on! Have a look at our odd socks – Can you guess which ones are Mrs Sabir’s?
Watch this space for our other antibullying work and our badges…
