Message from Mrs Rodgers (Music co-ordinator) -   

Hello everyone! I know some of you already have ocarinas and other musical instruments at home, but I thought now might be the time for lots of you to learn something new. Why not have a go at playing the ocarina. It's really easy. Anyone can do it. Get you parents involved as well. Show them the following message from me, and I look forward to hearing our new ocarina choir when we all get back together in school.  

Hi Parents -  

Fancy learning something new with your children?  

In school, the children will have seen and heard other children, and sometimes the teachers, playing the ocarina. It is a small wind instrument that can be played easily without the ability to read music, and without the screechy noise of the recorder when not played quite right!!!!  

As a school, we order the 4 hole plastic ocs and books from Ocarina Workshop www.ocarina.co.uk . Other websites also sell ocarinas, but I have found ocarina workshop books to be the easiest to follow. You can even get a CD to play along to as well. Go on, give it a go. Get the whole family playing!  

Mrs Rodgers   

   

   

Enjoy your ocarina playing children and parents! I will make sure I practise mine ready to perform to Warblers when we are reunited 😊.   

If you have an ocarina or any instrument at home, create a song or melody to perform to your family. Let me know how this goes! If you do not have an ocarina or musical instrument at home, use your imagination to create your own instrument. Amaze me with your creativity!  

Challenge: With your melody, experiment with volume and pitch. What do you notice? What do you observe? Post an explanation on your blog- I am eager to find out what you observed!

Science:  

Continue your research on your living organisms to finish your fact file.  

Ensure that you draw an image to show what their appearance is like. Label your image on your fact file, revealing particularly significant features such as antennae, spots and many more.  

Challenge: Can you draw their habitats? Label this diagram to show how their habitat is suited to them. Do you know why this is their habitat? Could they live anywhere else?

In English, we have been learning and writing about the Spanish Armada whereby the children will be retelling the events of the Spanish Armada through writing a recount.

In science, we are exploring the states of matter. The children will learn about solids, liquids and gases, and the properties of each of these. They will work to sort objects based upon their properties before moving on to learn about how objects change state.

9.10.18

In year 4 this week, the children have been learning to punctuate speech. They have worked hard to include the correct punctuation and to think about what characters might say to each other. In maths, the children have been comparing and ordering numbers up to 10,000. They enjoyed writing on the tables in order to do this! In science, we have moved on to investigating the different types of teeth! We thought about which of our teeth are used to eat different food types and will continue learning about the function of the different types of teeth in our following lessons.

2.10.18

This week, in maths, the children in year 4 have been partitioning numbers and identifying the value of each digit within a number. In English, the children have continued reading our class book, Oliver and the Seawigs. We have been introduced to a new character, Iris (a short sighted mermaid). The children have written expanded noun phrases to describe Iris and are going to be writing a character description in the following days. In science, the children have loved writing diary entries in the role of a piece of food moving through the digestive system.

19.9.18 

 

This week, Year 4 have been introduced in their new book in English. This term, some of the children's English lessons will be based around the book, Oliver and the Seawigs. We have been making predictions about what might happen in the story and are going to be moving on to writing in the role of Oliver in the form of a diary entry. In maths, the children have been learning to read and write Roman numerals. We will now be learning to round numbers to the nearest 10. In science, our topic is the digestive system.

13th July 2018

This week, year 4 have been writing an explanation text in their English lessons. The children designed their own contraptions and have worked hard to write detailed explanations as to how they work. They have focused on using the features of a explanation text in their writing. In maths, the children have been looking at symmetry. Most recently, the children have been completing symmetrical 2D shapes and patterns. In Science, the children will be testing out their ear defenders that they have created and will be evaluating the different materials used in terms of their ability to act as a sound buffer.

27th June 2018

This week, year 4 are continuing to look at shape in maths. The children have been working to identify the properties of 3D shapes and have thought about which nets will produce different 3D shapes. In English, the children are writing a newspaper report about an event that has occurred within the Iron Man story (an Space-Bat-Angel-Dragon has landed on Earth). In science, we are continuing to explore how sound travels and are learning about pitch of sounds. The children have been working hard so far this week!

13th May 2018

Year 4 have been working hard so far this week. We have been learning all about angles in maths and have been working hard to compare different angles. We are now able to describe angles as: acute, right angles, obtuse, straight and reflex angles. In English, we are writing persuasive letters to the farmers within our Iron Man story. The children are working hard to include persuasive language and use a range of different sentence types within their writing. In science, we have started our new topic: sound. The children have started to learn about how sound travels and have learnt a little bit about the different parts of an ear.

1st May 2018

In English this week, year 4 have been introduced to their new book - The Iron Man. We have been making predictions about what might happen within the story and are going to be writing a setting description. Our focus is to include prepositional phrases and expanded noun phrases, as well as using figurative language. In maths, our focus is money! We have been ordering, converting and comparing different amounts of money. We will be using rounding and estimating skills to calculate how much money we need to buy certain items. The children are continuing to learn about electricity in science and are busy in the Ice Zone learning all about South America.

In maths, year 4 have been using their estimation skills. We have been working on making sensible estimations using our prior knowledge.

In Science, we have been learning about the water cycle and how temperature impacts upon the rate of evaporation. The children have been writing letters that explain how the water cycle works.

2.2.18

 

In science this half term, year 4 have been investigating the different states of matter. Today, we carried out an experiment to test the temperature at which chocolate changes from a solid to a liquid. The children worked to ensure that the experiment was a fair test: choosing to use the same amount of chocolate in each condition, with the same amount of water. They made predictions and then recorded their observations. They will be finishing off writing up their experiments next week before having the opportunity to observe how other materials are able to change state.

31.1.18

 

In English, year 4 are going to be writing non-chronological reports on a topic of their choice. Please could children come prepared to their English lessons with information about their chosen topic. This might mean making notes about their favourite animal or their favourite game.

 

Also, a reminder that all children need a named pair of wellies in school in order for them to take part in all outdoor activities.

22.1.18

 

What a great start to the week! Warbler class have worked to create visual representations of different fractions. We have been recapping which number is the numerator and which number is the denominator and have thought about the different equivalent fractions.

22.1.18

 

Last week, year 4 started their new topic in science: States of Matter. The children started by sorting the various items into solids, liquids and gases. They then identified the properties of the different states of matter.

We will be moving on to looking at how materials change states (e.g. by heating and cooling).

19.1.18

 

This morning it was Warbler group B's turn to explore measuring area and perimeter. The children worked to calculate the area and perimeter of the school hall. They then had a go at converting the measurements from metres to centimetres.

18.1.18

 

The children in Warbler class group A have been exploring perimeter and area by measuring the length and width of the playground. They worked hard to calculate the perimeter and area using the measurements that they recorded.

15.1.18

 

The children in Warbler class have worked hard today to sequence the events in our book (The Lost Happy Endings) during their English lessons. They then rewrote parts of the story, changing the story from third person to first person. The children will be looking further at writing in the first person during following English lessons.

12.1.18

 

ALERT!! THE VIKINGS HAVE ARRIVED AND ATTACKED!

The children in year 3 and 4 have been working hard as detectives today to try and find out who was responsible for the attack on the school!

Warbler class worked hard to uncover and solve the clues that our intruders left behind. They were careful not to contaminate any clues with their finger prints, and so decided that they needed to wear gloves to handle any evidence.

It didn't take our detectives long to work out that it was the Vikings who had attacked! Good job years 3 and 4!

4/1/18

Welcome back Warblers! I hope that you have all had a lovely break and are feeling well rested and ready for another busy term!

In year 4, we are starting to learn about the Anglo Saxons. We are thinking about where in history the Anglo Saxons existed and started to think about what the life of an Anglo Saxon would have been like. 

This term we are going to be reading The Lost Happy Endings and our English lessons will be focused around this book. To begin with, the children will be creating a character profile for one of the characters within the book and then writing a diary entry in role. 

In maths, we will be recapping some of our learning from last term, where we will start by looking at multiplying and dividing before we move on to focusing on measurement. 

14.12.17 - In maths, year 4 have been creating Christmas mosaics. They found the answers to work out what colour they needed to colour each square of their mosaic to reveal a Christmas picture.

Welcome to Warbler Class 2016/2017

This class page will share the learning that the children are doing throughout the year.

Our teachers are Mrs Voce, Mrs Rodgers and Miss O'Sullivan. 

Our PE day is Friday this term. Please make sure you have the correct PE kit in school and that earrings are removed.

Homework will go home on a Thursday and needs to be handed in the following Tuesday (if completing weekly).

We expect children to read at home at least 5 times a week and hand their reading record in every day.  Books will be changed every day before home time. The children have also been given 'Multiplication cards' to help them learn their times tables.

We will be competing in a weekly 'Great Spelling Quiz' every Friday. Six new words will be posted weekly onto Facebook and on display in class for the children to practice.

 

If you have any questions about what is happening in class then please ask any of us.

Here are some of the recycling trucks that the children have made out of junk materials for our 'Recycle Trux' competition. The children have been very creative and inventive with their designs. So fingers crossed..
