This week in year 4 we have continued to look at nonsense poems and portmanteau words. WE created our own mythical creatures and after looking at adjectives for our creature we developed portmanteau words, leading onto our own 'Jabberwocky style' poem. Well done to Olivia who wrote an amazing poem that has been passed around many of the staff! In Maths we have continued with our times table rap, but have also been completing fractions work in small groups. In Science we have moved onto look at the digestive system, which is fascinating and lots of excellent questions have been raised. On Thursday we were lucky enough to take part in a team building exercise with Commando Joes (Mahdlo centre), which really put us through our paces!
We wanted to show you our pictures from when we decorated cakes in red, white & blue to celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday, as we weren't able to post them on last week. We were fortunate to be visited by two residents from Shawside Nursing Home who joined in our celebrations & went away with a cake each, decorated beautifully by Ifsah & Lily!
Coming up this week: photos from the visit of Commando Joe last Thursday, who presented us with some tough team building challenges. Watch this space to find out how we got on...
