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.
