We have had a 'collaboration' focus this week in English. The children were working in groups and over a few days they created a collaborative poster, having researched their famous women that they had been allocated. We will go on to learn about to write biographies and then go on to write our own. The children decided as a group on content, layout and then also presented their work to the class.
We hope you have a super weekend,
Miss Chalcraft, Mrs Graham and Mrs White
I wasn't the only one who learnt how to Hula Hoop this afternoon. What a treat! Thanks to our PTA, we got to enjoy Hula Hooping and learn some extra skills and then also develop some flower sticks tricks. It was a truly stunning day too. Spring is here (dare I say it!)
Our new geography topic is Migration, in Maths we will be starting Decimals and in English we are learning from the text Fantastically Great Women who changed the World by Kate Pankhurst. Year 4 have their play in a couple of weeks too, so we are doing a lot of rehearsals at the moment too.
We hope you all have a super weekend and long may this sunshine last!

Year 4 were delighted to have had their questions answered directly in the form of a personalised You Tube video from Alastair himself from his actual writing shed! If you don't know this inspirational author yet, you must have a look at his website and the books he has written about his adventures, more info below.
'As well as expeditions such as cycling round the world, walking across India and rowing the Atlantic, Alastair was named as a National Geographic Adventurer of the Year for his pioneering work on the concept of microadventures, trying to encourage people to get outside, get out of their comfort zone, go somewhere they’ve never been. A microadventure is an adventure that is close to home, cheap, simple, short, and yet very effective. Alastair has written ten books about his adventures. He is highly regarded as a motivational keynote speaker for corporate events around the world. You can get in touch with Alastair here. He produces a free occasional newsletter with the highlights of the blog and important expedition news.'
