Today Jake, our Sports Ambassador, had a huge task to undertake: sorting out all of the new playground equipment that had arrived! The resources were purchased from the money raised by the Zumbathon in the summer term. The previous Zumba Y6 leaders (who have now left the school) have left their legacy by choosing equipment to be used on the playground. Today they arrived and it felt almost like Christmas.

This morning, Class 4 came into the room to discover Jeff enjoying reading a classic book out of our selection - 'The Five Children and It'. He set the children a challenge: to read a classic text with a buddy for pleasure. 

The children relished the opportunity to shared texts together. A particular favourite was, 'The Wind in the Willows', which was making the children laugh.

Yesterday our football team played a friendly match against Baldwins Gate Primary School. The boys thoroughly enjoyed their first team outing and the opportunity to play on the fabulous astroturf at Chesterton Community High School. Whilst they didn't win the match (they were defeated 1-0), they showed great team work and had some super passes and saves.

Jeff the Elf is Back in Class 4!

Last year, Class 4 we visited by Jeff (Santa's little helper) who came all the way from the North Pole. Guess what? He is back again! 

Yesterday we arrived in school to be welcomed by Jeff - he had messed up all of our class library books and made himself a rather fragile-looking home. He brought us our first Christmas challenge: cracking a code using our knowledge of Morse code, which we have studied in computing.

There's a Rang-Tan in my Bedroom - Poetic Voice in Class 4

 

In English, Class 4 are currently learning about poetic voice. We have been identifying the theme of different poems and what the poet is trying to say. So far we have explored the poems 'Cats' and 'Work and Play' by Ted Hughes as well as the poem 'Rat Race' by John Agard.

Today in our lesson we have been exploring the poem 'There's a Rang-Tan in my bedroom', which was created by Greenpeace, an environmental charity which focuses on protecting the natural world.
