On Tuesday 26th February Year three and four were lucky to have a visitor from the New Forest. She spoke about the effect plastic has on our environment and we were able to suggest things we can do to reduce our plastic use.
This week Year 4 have been learning about orienteering in PE lessons. We learnt about the symbols used on Ordnance Survey maps and how orienteering was first introduced by the Swedish armed forces. In these pictures we are playing a team game where we had to match the symbol with the meaning.
Year 4 have been learning how to present data in tables and bar graphs. On Thursday we had the chance to apply our skills to our own data when we had a mini rugby skills tournament in 4HL and Mr Williams kept a record of our scores using a data table. We then returned to class and turned our data into bar graphs.
In year 4, we have been developing ideas for our tree house sculptures. We will be making these next week and presenting them to parents at work share. Please come along on Thursday 18th at 2:45pm to see our final pieces!
One of our year 4 boys enjoyed a star-studded day out in London last week, as a finalist in the BBC Radio 2 500 words competition.
Hector reached the top 50 of the short story competition out of a record 135,000 entries.
The final was held at Hampton Court Palace during the recording of the Chris Evans Breakfast Show, with the Duchess of Cornwall – the competition’s honorary judge – in attendance.
Hector’s friends in year 4 were able to listen in!
On the day he was lucky enough to meet celebrities including David Walliams, Jim Broadbent, Alexandra Burke and Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter films).
Hector also chatted with children’s author Malorie Blackman who, when she knew 4HL had read her book, Operation Gadgetman, asked Hector to say hello to the class from her.
