Monday 19th November - Friday 30th November
We would like to thank the drama students from Cardiff West for their applaudable performance of ‘Matilda’. Year 4 particularly enjoyed the musical parts of the performance.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… in year four anyway! We have enjoyed designing Christmas posters and stockings. Most of all, the children enjoyed making Snow Globes to sell at the Christmas Fayre. In addition, we have started learning traditional Christmas songs from around the world and practicing for our Christmas Concert. Tickets for the KS2 Christmas Concert will be on sale from the hall as of Monday 3rd December onwards.
Monday 5th November - Friday 16th November
On Tuesday 6th November, we had a visitor to come and introduce part of our topic... Sensoria! Our visitor was a member of the community who wore a cochlear implant. We asked our visitor lots of questions about the cochlear implant which we enjoyed hearing the answer to. The children thought that the cochlear implant looked like a super agent gadget that made our visitor look very intelligent.
After that, we tried to read our friends lips... it was very hard! Later on, we put blind folds on and we made lego houses with the help from our partners instructions. We ended the lesson by thinking about some ways in which we can learn about our topic. The children are very excited to take part in the lessons that they came up with the ideas for themselves.
Our new topic this term is:
This project has a science focus and teaches children about light and sound and how they travel. At the heart of this project children learn how to write poems on the theme of light and sound and learn additional skills in scientific recording and explanation writing.
In this project the children will learn:
• How sound travels and how sounds can be made louder and quieter;
• How shadows are formed and how these change as the position of the sun changes;
• About important people and inventors who helped to create the technology of light and sound;
• How sight and hearing affects people’s everyday life;
• How to use light and sound creatively in art, music and other creative media such as photography;
• How to write poems on a theme.
Monday 1st October - Friday 12th October
We have had a fantastic two weeks! Myself and Mrs Lloyd are very proud of the progress that has been made in swimming lessons. The receptionist at the leisure center suggested that we were the quietest/ most sensible school that she has ever seen... da iawn dosbarth 4! This week we have been learning to add 3-digit numbers to 3-digit numbers. In addition, we have been subtracting 3-digit numbers from 3-digit numbers.
