Homework

Because we completed each piece of homework in the Summer 1 term and handed it in on time, we received a homework prize of ice cream! Lots of chocolate sauce and sprinkles later...

Winchester Hat Fair

We were lucky to work with Theatre Royal to create headdresses and props for the Schools' Parade. The theme is Roald Dahl and we are basing our work on George's Marvellous Medicine. 

Winchester Science Centre

On Friday 6th May, Green class went to the Science Centre. We had an amazing time exploring the exhibits, as well as finding out lots about sound in a workshop. Check out the fun we had!...

Eid-al-Fitr

We have been finding out about Islamic and Catholic religious celebrations. We found out about fasting during Ramadan and how Muslims celebrate the end of Ramadan with Eid-al-Fitr. We made coconut squares which some make to celebrate the end of Ramadan.

World Religions

 

For the first two weeks of the summer term, we will be exploring world religions, in particular Islam and Christianity. We visited a Mosque in Southampton to find out more about the Islamic religion and we visited a catholic church. We were able to understand how different religions worshipped and have our questions about their beliefs answered.

Thursday 25th February

We visited HMS Victory to explore life aboard a famous ship. We looked around the ship, as well as taking part in lots of activities such as flag code breaking, knot tying, dressing up and exploring artefacts.

Can you guess what our topic is for this term?

Winchester University Students created rich mathematical tasks to inspire and challenge us!

 

We were lucky to have Winchester University Students in class to work with us closely in maths. We are put into groups and did lots of activities to explore and challenge us on our understanding of certain mathematical ideas.

Teeth and digestion.

 

We are now focusing on teeth and digestion in science. We used mirrors to look at our teeth and our tongue to feel them, before we made a model of our teeth with play dough. We were very careful to make our teeth exactly the same as we saw them in the mirror. We also learnt the names of our teeth and what their jobs were when we eat. Later, we conducted an experiment to find out what happens to our teeth when we ate or drank different things. We put an egg (which represented our teeth and enamel) into different liquids which included Diet Coke, orange juice and water. We found out that orange juice was very bad for your teeth! On Thursday 21st January, we had a Digestion Day. We learnt all about what happens to our food after we eat it. We watched the Magic Schoolbus to learn about the process of digestion, carried out an experiment to simulate what happens to the food in our bodies, and then used our learning to map out a food journey on a body outline in the hall.

Jungle Explorers!

We went exploring in the wooded area, imagining that it was a jungle, just like Mowgli from the Jungle Book. We saw lots of photographs of jungle animals and listened to jungle music before thinking about what we saw, heard and felt. We used props such as ears, glasses and gloves to remind us which sense we were focusing on.

Christmas Homework.

 

Over Christmas, read the first chapter of the Jungle Book. Photocopies have been sent home, but are also below if you have lost your sheet! 

1 hour challenge!

We were given a one hour challenge from Miss McDermott. In 1 hour, we had to create our own Deadly 60 Video about a rainforest animal. We had to do this independently, using all our skills, and collaborating with friends to share skills and ideas when making the videos. Here are our finished products...enjoy! smiley

Christmas Carol Singing at the Winchester Christmas Market.

 

Year 3 and 4 were lucky to spend their morning at the Winchester Christmas Market this December. We  sung Christmas songs to those doing their Christmas shopping and had a lovely time down at the market. The money raised is going to Autism Hampshire.

Marwell Zoo

 

Year 3 and 4 went to Marwell Zoo to see some rainforest animals and attend a rainforest workshop. We learnt all about animals in the rainforest, the layers of the rainforest and were even able to touch a hissing cockroach and an African python! We all had a fabulous day, and Miss McDermott was super impressed with everything that we learnt. We can now use our learning in literacy to create our fact file and in art to create our animal masks! smiley

Next term's topic...

 

Can you guess our topic for next term? Green Class have some exciting opportunities next term- we will be visiting Marwell Zoo, exploring the different animals that live in the Rainforest and writing fact files, making animal masks in Art and continuing our swimming lessons at the Leisure Centre.

Half Term Homework...

 

How many high frequency words can you learn over half term? Green Class spent time finding which words we needed to focus on more closely before half term- sheets are in book bags and are attached below...random test after half term! Good luck smiley

Green Class and the Chocolate Factory!

 

Over the last 6 weeks, Green Class have been enjoying learning in Literacy through the fabulous 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' written by Roald Dahl. The children have relished opportunities to learn in all sorts of exciting ways: role play, comparing elements of the book to the film and chocolate tasting! At the end of the unit the children designed chocolate wrappers and made chocolate using their own choices to vary the flavour including marshmallows, honey comb and biscuit. They came up with some fantastic chocolate mixtures.  Here they are enjoying their own creations!

 

 

 

Fairtrade Day

 

On Wednesday 30th September, Year 3 and 4 held a Fairtrade Day to find out all about Fairtrade and what it does. We were very lucky to have Mr James to start off our day, who taught us a banana magic trick. We then took part in lots of activities including baking, art, geography tasks and debating. The cakes we made were then sold at a cake sale after school to raise money for charity. 

Freezing liquids to make solids.

 

We have investigated how to change a liquid into a solid through freezing. We made our own ice lollies and even watched them change back to a liquid when we ate them!

HOW DOES ICE CREAM CHANGE OVER TIME?

 

"Today we worked with ice cream. It was very exciting. We had thermometers that we put in the ice cream and counted to 20 and took the thermometers out to tell us the temperature"- Megan.

 

"With ice cream we measured the temperature with a thermometer and we wrote down the answer that the thermometer told us"- Emma.

 

"Today we worked with a thermometer, dipping it into ice cream and then we checked the temperature and it melted like chocolate"- Albie.

 

"In groups of 2 and 3, we worked with ice cream and thermometers to work out the temperature of ice cream every three minutes. We started off on 0 minutes and then we measured on three minutes and so on. We used our three times tables"- Kieran.

 

"Today we were working with ice cream and we used a thermometer to dip it in. Before, we practised using thermometers by measuring water, our armpits and foreheads. The ice cream made me hungry!"- Macey.

 

"Today we used thermometers and we dipped the thermometers in the ice cream and then we used the thermometers to measure the temperature to measure under our armpits and in the mud. We looked to see if the temperature went higher or lower"- Lilly.

COLUMN SUBTRACTION

 

Miss McDermott is super proud of us and our maths work this week. We have been learning to subtract 4 digit numbers using the column method. 

We started off by showing the subtraction methods that we knew- lots of us were able to partition.

Kieran moved from partitioning numbers, to working on the expanded column method, to carrying, before finally moving onto the contracted column method! Wow!

Lavinia found subtraction tricky, but her hard work and determination helped her and in only 4 lessons, she progressed from needing support to partition to carrying on the expanded column method! You superstar!

We all made amazing progress and are now 'super subtractors'!

CHOCOLATE POEMS

In Literacy we have been writing chocolate and sweet themed poems for our Charlie and the Chocolate Factory topic. We started by doing a taste test of lots of different sweets and chocolate before working with partners to develop our ideas. After drafting and editing and improving our poems we wrote them in neat...don't read them if you're hungry...they will make you even hungrier! frown

PS- see if you can spot some similes, alliteration and personification!

Year 4 and 6 Descriptive Writing Workshop

On Monday 8th September, Silver and Green classes took over the school hall to enjoy a descriptive writing workshop. Having just finished work on setting descriptions, Year 6 became teachers for a lesson helping Year 4 with their descriptive sentences. Silver class shared their writing and offered advice to Green class who asked questions and filled their books with ideas and new ambitious vocabulary. Green class used the information to create their 'phenomenal' descriptive sentences later in the day.
