Half Term Residential Experience (at home)

May 20, 2020

Hi everyone, with holidays cancelled and residential trips not going ahead, we have found a great resource for you to use over the holidays with your child. It is a safe and enjoyable way for children to enjoy the great outdoors (or indoors) and we really hope you enjoy using it together. In this activity, children can build a den or pitch a tent then enjoy a variety of activities just as if they were on a real residential trip. You can  do this inside or outside, with lots of fun for the whole family.

The attached timetable gives an example timetable for half term week as well as some great resources that can be used to support your half-term experience. Don’t forget, timings are flexible and you can follow the timetable to suit your family.

Happy residential everyone!!!! J 

🔥Super Work Alert!🔥

April 29, 2020

Ellie-Mae, in Year 4 Spruce, has been sending us lots of her work that she has been doing whilst away from school! I posted this image of the dragon with a set of questions and here are Ellie's super creative and imaginative answers (I'd love to see some more answers in the comments below). Well done Ellie - you're hard work is blowing me away and making all of us smile every day! 

 

Where has this little dragon come from?

 

The Dragon came from a far away castle hidden in the clouds. It’s a secret castle called Dragon Ink. There are lots of other dragons all living there with magical powers.

 

How did the little dragon end up with the human that’s holding it?

 

The little dragon was flying high in the sky with his mommy dragon and an evil vulture tried to eat the baby.

The mom swerved trying to avoid him. The baby dragon fell from his mommy falling to land where a little boy playing in some fields came across him frightened hidden in the grass.

 

What do you think might happen now this dragon has been found?

 

The little boy will look after the baby dragon and make sure he has lots of food and water to make him big and strong. The boy will try and help find the dragon’s mom as he knows he might not live long as he isn’t from this world.

Safer Internet Day

February 12, 2020

Following safer internet day on Tuesday, where we discovered lots about our identity in 'real life' and online (and how they can be so different), we were lucky enough to see our knowledge in action today thanks to the Saltmine Theatre Company! As you can see from the pictures of the performance, the show was hilarious and had us all in fits of laughter! However, the serious message from the performance is what we will all take home with us...Sarah, an innocent 11 year old girl, who wanted to explore her local forest, was lured in to Wilf's (the wolf's) grasp and very nearly got her self into lots of danger! Luckily, Sarah remembered the third rule that her mother gave her - shout for a trusted adult when you're in trouble! Even through Sarah veered off the safety path and gave away personal details to Wilf (which made it easy for him to find her and manipulate her), her trusted adult (Mom) was able to help when Sarah called for her. It's important to know that Sarah's Mom set the rules to make sure that Sarah was safe, but in her time of need, would not be angry, but instead help her, protect her, and let her know that it is not her fault that she got into a sticky and dangerous situation! 

After the thrilling performance, we discussed how to keep ourselves on the path of safety whilst using the internet and the steps we might need to take if there ever comes a time that we veer off that path. We have been able to see first hand how our decisions about how we handle things online can impact others and keep them safe too! 

Remember the rules:

1. Do not leave the path of safety!

2. Do not give out any personal details!

3. If in doubt, shout for a trusted adult!

and last but not least...

4. HAVE FUN!

Safer Internet Day

February 11, 2020

As part of Safer Internet Day 2020, Year 4 Rowan have been learning how to keep their identity safe online.

Rockstar Day

January 13, 2020

Year 4 Rowan had an amazing day today, dressing up as rock stars and practising our times tables through a range of activities. We formed our own rock bands, and, using our ukuleles, we performed a gig, playing chords on certain multiples in times tables that we were given. We performed against other bands in our class to see who could remember their multiples correctly. Not only this, we also challenged Year 4 Spruce to a ‘Rock Battle’ to see who could recall their times tables more fluently.

Anti-Bullying Week

November 27, 2019

During 'Anti-Bullying Week', we learnt about appreciating and celebrating each others' differences. We learnt about Benjamin Zephaniah, and wrote acrostic poems about standing up to racism.

 

We also came to school wearing odd socks, to highlight the fact that we are all different to one another and that this is something that we should be celebrating more.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

October 15, 2019

Whilst learning about 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory', Year 4 Rowan got creative, designing and producing their own chocolates that Willy Wonka could start manufacturing in his magical factory.

Maths

October 15, 2019

During our place value unit, we have been comparing numbers with up to 4-digits. We represented the numbers using Dienes, before comparing them, using greater than, less than and equal to symbols.

Ukuleles

October 15, 2019

Year 4 Rowan really enjoyed learning about the different parts of a ukulele. We practised strumming along to different rhythms and we are looking forward to our next lesson.

Year 4 Visit to the Theatre

October 10, 2019

Year 4 had a wonderful time at the theatre. We were a fantastic audience for the puppeteers, as they performed 'Emily Rising'. When we returned to school, we had lots of discussions about how the performance made us feel and how each of us interpreted certain parts of the story in different ways. We are really looking forward to our writing workshop, based on the performance, where we will be writing our very own critical reviews.
