Welcome to the web page for 4C. Please take time to look around the school’s website for key information. Also, make sure that you visit this page as often as possible as it is here that you will be able to view what your child is doing in school each week and every term via the Class Blog that appears below.
Below you will also find important information about your child’s PE slot as well as advice about reading at home.
PE for 4C is scheduled for each Thursday afternoon and it is therefore essential that your child has their PE in school on this occasion. It is also important that each item of PE kit is clearly labelled with your child’s name in case things get lost.
Reading at Home
Reading at home is essential for your child to make the progress necessary with their school work. Your child will have a Reading Record Book that they bring home each night. If they read to you or another adult, or to themselves, please sign the Record Book to say this has happened. They will then get credits at school towards a range of reading certificates that they will receive in assembly.
Class 4C Blog 6th February, 2018
4C have been looking at a range of historical legends and rewriting their famous stories. Throughout the writing process, we have been including lots of description and developing our vocabulary choices. “The word mats have helped me use better words in my writing” RR.
We have been focusing on fractions and decimals. Now that we have a good understanding of comparing, ordering and adding the two we are starting to move on to high level mastery questions. The children have enjoyed converting between fractions and decimals and they have really deepened their understanding as a result.
The discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb has been the main focus of our Creative Curriculum lessons. In order to report the facts, as accurately as we could, we wrote a newspaper report. When researching, we actually learnt that a water boy stumbled upon the first step and not the famous Egyptologist, Howard Carter. Surprisingly, we discovered that there was ‘apparently’ a curse on all those involved in revealing his tomb; Lord Carnarvon (the person who funded it) dies himself soon after, by a mosquito bite.
In Science, we designed and made a parachute that could protect an egg from cracking when dropped. Our intentions were to decrease the force of gravity and increase air resistance so that the egg would descend to the ground slower- we had mixed success. Our conclusions revealed that having a bigger parachute enabled more air to be trapped, therefore increasing air resistance.
