As a learning community centred in Christ, we walk hand in hand with God on our journey in faith.

Life in 4B

Ruth

 

Ruth is a woman who is widowed and then remains with her mother-in-law rather than returning to her own people. She is a symbol of abiding loyalty and devotion. Ruth's story is told in the Book of Ruth. The story is celebrated during the festival of Shavuot, the feast of weeks, 50 days after Passover. 

 

We acted out her story. 

 

 

Black History Month

As part of Black History Month, 4B looked at our Unicef Gold rights, especially Article 2 (non-discrimination)  and Article 30 (children from minority or indigenous groups) . We them created posters and prayers based on this years theme Saluting our Sisters. We also spent some time in library reading stories of amazing people in history and celebrated people from different cultures.

During our trip, we learnt all about cells and uniforms throughout the years. We also learnt what evidence they need to solve a case.

In autumn , we looked at light and still life. We have built up our skills in adding shadows, mid-tones and highlights to paint our own still life of a plant. We enjoyed looking at each others work in our silent gallery. 

In Spring, we looked at space and the the work of Millet. We conbined our understanding of background, foreground and middle ground and our Catholic Social Teaching of Rights and responsibility to create doves.

In Summer, we have learnt how to cross stitch. Looking at the work of Norman Hartnell, we designed own own Binka cross stitch bookmarks. 

Prayer and liturgy

In our prayer and liturgy, we visited our Prayer Garden to pray to the Rosary. 

Child led Prayer and Liturgy about peace in our world, after learning about the confilct in Russia and Ukraine in Geography.

In History, in preparation for our next block of learning ( Anglo- Saxons and Vikings) we recapped our leaning from year 3. Using our retrieval skills we remembered what we have already learnt. 

In English we have started looking at setting descriptions. Today we went on an adventure to look for clue to what our model text is about. We thought about using all our senses. 

 

We then started working on imagery using computers. 

In Autumn, we are made slingshot cars. We first made the mechanism so it will move. 

In Spring, we tasted, then made our own healthy biscuits using oats.

In Geography this week, we are learning about Mediterranean Europe.

In Science we are learnt about Electricity. We have started our learning by try to build a simple circuit to turn on a light blub. Throughout this unit, we will learn about electrical appliances, how to by safe around electricity and what is a complete circuit and how can we use switches to stop the flow of electricity. 

When learning sound, we experimented with how sound changes the further we move away from the source. We kept walking until we could no longer here the sound.

In Summer, we are looking at living things and their habitats. We have started by grouping, classifying and identifying animals and leaves. We then make our own classification keys.  

Our world book day costumes. 

We looked at our favourite books. 

We wrote stories where books and characters got jumbled up.

Crazy Hair day

As part of raising money for Father Hudsons, we had crazy hair all day.

Earth Day

For Earthy day we had a virtual assembly about endangered animals and taking care of our planet we then listen to a poem called The Abundance of Us by Kiara Gilbert. Then we each wrote our own poems about the Earth and what we should be doing to take care of it. 

Check out our music.

As part of our computing learning, we learnt how to program and use mircobits. We were able to program them to play rock, paper scissors.
