Class 4 entered this year's Rotary Club Young Writer Competition. The theme was, 'My Happiest Day' and the children could write in any style they wanted - prose or poetry. Sarah won the Year 5 competition, with Noah being awarded second place. For the Year 6's Ella came first with Regan coming second. Well done to everyone.
Journalism in Class 4
This half term, Class 4 have been developing their skills at writing newspaper reports ensuring they have a headline, by line, orientation, main body and reorientation. Mrs Middleton contacted an old friend who works for the Times Newspaper and he agreed to send the children evolving stories to work on under pressure. For the last week, the children have worked very hard meeting deadlines to write reports, features and articles in their own journalistic teams to create a full newspaper - the results have been amazing. Well done everyone.
Zoe, Willow, Oliver, Stanley, Sarah, Imy, Emilia and Matthew wrote a script to perform in our Collective Worship on the theme of Friendship.
This half term we have been designing and building a garden room for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their three children. We rolled paper into tubes and connected them with nuts and bolts to make a framework. We then covered the framework so that it was eye-catching but also weather proof. Mrs Middleton and Mrs Ostle tested the structures to see if they were fit for purpose. Great fun was had by all.
In Science, we have been studying micro-organisms. Some bacteria are helpful and some are harmful, We have 'discovered' some new bacteria and recreated them in Petri dishes.
