Photographs & Children’s Work

We’ve been learning about volcanoes this term…did you spot ‘Mount Fuji’ appear on the playground?! 

 

Welcome welcome to our book restaurant! We kicked off the Spring term in Miss Dunn’s class by making reservations at the finest establishment in town! The fine dining experience left us with lots of ideas for new books we wanted to read.

In maths recently the children practised their money handling skills through opening a class shop. Here they are checking their change and pricing up items.

It’s been dragons, dragons and more dragons this year in Year 3/4 as we have enjoyed taking part in the York writing project. Here are some of our great dragon eggs that we made. We also had a magical time learning speech punctuation with a swish and a flick…wingardium leviosa!

The whole of Year 3/4 had a wonderful time learning wartime songs for our singing event “100 Years 1000 Voices” at the University of York. We performed our pieces at our topic celebration whilst parents enjoyed a spot of cake!

 

 

We have had a wonderful time in Year 3/4 learning about the stone age this year. We had a History day where we were able to look at different historical artefacts from the stone age and bronze age. 

Here are some photographs of Mrs Todd and Mrs Jones’s classroom. Can you spot the stone cacti that we painted?

Our bread workshops in Spring were great fun. Did you enjoy eating the food we made?

We have been measuring in all sorts of ways in maths and science. Our investigations were practical, and only a little bit messy!

In English, we learnt about the trickster spider Anansi. We enjoyed being dramatic storytellers and creating exciting tales about different animals.

We have been creating settlements.

What a fantastic visit to the Wildlife Park!

Year 3 and 4 had a great time during the Ancient Egypt topic celebration. The Ancient Egyptian dances portrayed life by the River Nile in a creative and dramatic way!

In science, Year 3 and 4 have been looking at digestion. The children had enormous fun creating their own ‘stomach’ in a bag! They also conducted practical scientific investigations.

In maths, we have been solving problems together using bar modelling and the written methods for addition and subtraction. In English, we have been writing super sentences in collaborative group work. We came up with lots of great adverbs, adjectives and adverbials!

We have been enjoying learning the ukulele in Year 3 and 4. We’ve learnt several different chords.

In Year 3 and 4 we have kicked off our Ancient Egyptian topic by doing some archaeology!

Why not take a look at some pictures from previous years?
