Welcome to Fir news. We made a variety of wellbeing arts and crafts. There were character superheroes, 'Who am I' sticks and feeling masks. Please do look at Fir Photo Gallery to view the beautiful pieces.
We have completed our first full week back at school and are getting used to the new expectations for Year 4. We have a whole new set of topics to learns about. For example, in Science we are exploring Animals including Humans. We began by matching and identifying human teeth and identifying their different functions. In literacy, we are studying a new book called 'Tuesday'. The children have been detectives and have enjoyed conducting interviews with characters from the book. In History, we have started to learn about the Anglo-Saxons.
In Literacy, we are continuing to explore the book 'Tuesday'. We have been identifying the features of a newspaper and have begun to write our own sections based on the book. In Science, we have begun an enquiry to find out which liquid will cause the most tooth decay? We have been exploring Hinduism, looking particularly at Brahman. In art, we made willow pattern plates basing the story on Tuesday. In Maths, we have consolidated our learning of place value. We continued to learn more about the Internet, routers and networks. We have also been studying the different roles and jobs within school and how they all help us to learn.
In RE, we were learning what Moksha means and how Hindu's want to achieve it. In Science, we wrote our conclusion on our enquiry into which liquid causes the most tooth decay and were a little surprised at the results. In Art, we made soap sculptures based on the abstract work of Barbara Hepworth.
