Year 4 have chosen a Roald Dahl themed reading area this half term and have been reading Matilda as our class book. I have to admit that Matilda is one of my favourite children’s books. We have been laughing and giggling lots!!!

Year 4 what do you like about Roald Dahl?
Year 4 went to the Shared Church in Keighley for a morning finding out about the Christmas Story…. they had lots of fun and completed a variety of activities.
What do you remember Year 4?
Not only have we been researching how people in the 1940′s ‘Make do and mend’ we even had a go at sewing for ourselves… it is much harder than it looked!
Have you ever tried to sew at home?
What types of things could you ‘mend’?
What did you do in your class for friendship week?

Can you believe that we raised £697.45 on Children in Need day with our ‘Bake Off!’?
This is really impressive! Did you bake and enter the competition? If so, what did you enter?
Year 4 you surprise me every week as you go from strength to strength with your stringed music lessons!!! Can you believe that we can now play ‘Rocking around the Christmas Tree’? I am hoping that we will have an opportunity to showcase our talent at ‘Carols around the Tree’ at Christmas time!!

We had a very inspiring day today! We went on a journey … through 1940. On our journey we explored a wide variety of drama techniques and games. These included opposites, freeze frames, spotlights, conscience alley, sculpture, discussion and many many more. We developed the use of listening skills as well as thinking about facial expression when creating drama based around our story that we created. We were all very creative and imaginative… many of us were also very brave trying new things!!! Well done Year 4.

This week Year 4 have been exploring the Spanish culture.
Firstly we made Paella and enjoyed the different flavours it had. We also continued to make different tapas this week. This included olives, chorizo, patatas bravas, tomato brushetta, sundried tomatoes and grilled peppers.
We enjoyed a visit from Alberto, a Spanish gentleman from the River Tagus region of Spain, he talked to us in Spanish and allowed us to practise our language and conversation skills.
We have created a 3D map of Spain which included a variety of human and physical features! This helped us apply the map skills we have been learning.
We had great fun learning the flamenco Ask us to show you a little if you see us around school…
What was your favourite part of Spanish week?
Year 1 are learning all about aliens, we have even tried some alien food! The children thought of some fantastic ideas of what aliens eat. They also had a go at making strange and tasty alien sandwiches!
What sandwich did you make?
Is there any other food that you think that aliens might eat that we didn’t think of?
We have been working really hard on year 1 practicing our cursive handwriting. We have been writing on whiteboards, in paint, in the glitter and making the letter with play dough!
Everyone did so well and I can really see an improvement in your writing.
Which letter have you found the hardest so far?
Can you think of anymore ways to make practicing our handwriting exciting?
I look forward to reading your suggestions.
