Year 4 experimented on improving their technique in creating a blue wash with water colours.
Speaking helps us with the development of reading and writing. Previously we talked about the importance of speaking aloud with passion, using intonation and volume.
Today, Robins are using their Role -Playing skills to improvise a conversation between Mr Morris and the books in the library. The role play will help us develop our ideas for conversation writing.
Below is a sneak peak of our Robins in action!
In Science, Robins have been investigating all about the digestive system.
The first activity was to discuss where the organs should be. There were some interesting results!
Here is a recap of where they should be.
They then had a go at being scientists presenting a TV program about the digestive system.
Can you remember all the vocabulary?
P.S Well done to Shriya for her extra research in the topic. It’s great to hear you share the knowledge.
This week Robins are concentrating on reading poetry. Today they used their scanning skills to locate different punctuation, key words and rhymes.
They also had a go at reading aloud in pairs.
The weather is certainly getting windy. Don’t forget to bring your raincoats to school!
Robins experimented with comic life to produce comic posters.
We also looked at how purplemash can support us in publishing a fact file about Picasso.
Year 4 were lucky enough to start their instrument lessons today. We began by learning as a class that we need to “buzz” with our lips and not blow. Trying it out lots of times is really important to make learning easier.
There are a mixture of instruments- trumpets and horns.
The class will have lessons every Monday now, so watch this space for updates and hopefully soon Year 4 will be experts!
There was a lot to learn and understand beforehand. Sitting correctly, buzzing-not blowing, warming up, placing instruments flat on the floor as well removing the mouthpiece.
In PHSE this week we talked about mindfulness and positive mental health.
We then reflected on things and activities that made us feel positive.
Year 4 have been understanding the difference between third person and first person.
Listen to Joseph read aloud his version of the story in first person.

This half term Robins have been studying Pablo Picasso.
Today they discussed all about cubism and had a go at creating their own cubism inspired portraits.
Excellent concentration! Well done to those of you who took care in using the oil pastels.
Notice the shapes and strong colours.
