Just a little farewell to Class 4.
You all did amazingly well with the play today, it was the best you have done and Miss Short, Mrs Jeffry, Mrs Howe and I were very proud of you .
I am sorry we had to finish our year together in this way, you won't forget your last year at Prior Park!. However you have all grown so much this year and coped well with all the changes. I know you will be able to move on to Middle school with confidence.
I have put some work on school 360 and the website for you for this week. Keep an eye out on school360 for the play.
I wish you all the very best in future. Have a great summer holiday.
In our last yoga session we used all the items from the different weeks of yoga.
Using the things helped us to focus. Look out for the balance birds, a very popular item in Class 4. The expanding balls makes us think about our breathing as we make the ball grow and shrink. We even got inside the ball. The feathers were fun as we had to try and keep them in the air just by blowing.
We had activity cards for different ways to move our bodies. The pompoms were used to create a picture.
The children asked some great questions.
How long did it take you to write the book?
Where did the ideas come from?
Did you draw the pictures first or write the text?
We look forward to writing our own short stories after being inspired by James.
We learnt lots about the creatures in Zoolab. The trantula looked big but was really a small one. We wouldn't want one running round our houses!
How long is the piece of string? As long as the longest snake Medusa. Unfortunately Medusa couldn't be with us , so Harry the snake came instead!
Can you imagine snails as big as this one in your garden?
Class 4 had an RAF Space Challenge day.
They learnt how to make a rocket that they could launch using a straw and lots of puff!
They carried out 2 scientific investigations:
Does the angle of launch affect the distance the rocket travels?
How does adding payload to the rocket affect the distance it travels?
We had a great day and used many STEM skills.
Class 4 were investigating the best type of paper to use to make rotocopters.
The wall paper was the best although the tissue paper reached the ground first. However the tissue paper floated to the ground rather than spinning down.
Week Beginning: 1st March 2021

Hello again Class 4,
I hope you all had a good half term break.
Hello Class 4,
I hope you all have a lovely half term you have all worked so hard. If you would like some half term activities there is a recorded story of 'The Iron Man' on your J2E 360 accounts, it would be good to have a look as this is the CLPE story you were working on this week. There is also 'Arthur and the Golden Rope' to listen to. Below is some information from 'Field to Fork' for how to make some 'easy peasey soup.'
The link is: https://youtu.be/azY6Dj3TfXE
Attached are a pdf giving curricular background and tips for managing how you might cook it with a class/group, and also the recipe.
