As quick as a flash

Good Evening!

As quick as a flash another week has flown by in Class 4, incredibly the children have not ceased in their determination to expand upon their prior learning. To give a brief overview, we have continued with our work on Place Value in maths and the children have shown envious levels of resilience when faced with difficult tasks. In English we have commenced writing our letters and I am very impressed with the work that has been completed thus far, many children have been able to transport the reader back to 1939 with their touching letters home.

In our science lessons we have been looking carefully at human development, this week we have focused on data relating to the growth of babies. Applying scientific and maths skills the children have been able to produce graphs to make observations about growth.

Today in art we have taken tentative steps towards producing self-portraits. We will develop our drawing skills over the coming weeks, culminating in a fabulous Blackout themed piece of art. Additionally, I have had the pleasure of taking part in my first Harvest festival at Brandesburton, it was lovely to see so many of you in attendance and to watch Class 4 perform so wonderfully. I look forward to seeing you all in the near future for further community events.

Finally, a special mention to all of the children who attended art club this evening, the children produced stunning pieces of work inspired by Joan Miró and last but not least I feel that special praise should go to the children this week for all the hard work that they have carried out on their homework, the Anderson Shelter cakes were yummy (future bake off contestants in the making), the models fit for Grand Designs and fact laden information sheets, well done!


Once again, I hope you all have an amazing weekend!

PS, I am soooooooooooooooooo excited about going to Eden Camp next week!

New Beginnings

Good Afternoon,

And welcome to the new Class 4 blog. It has been a very busy first full week back in Class 4. To begin however, I would like to take this opportunity to say hello and say how much I am enjoying working with the team and the children at Brandesburton, all of whom have been amazing.

We have started the year at pace, covering a variety of different subjects, notably we have commenced our work on the Blackout. I must say how impressed I am at the large number of artifacts that have been brought into school to support learning, thank you for your continued support. During our theme sessions we have investigated potential reasons for the start of World War 2, as well as the nations involved at the start of the war and completed Blackout themed art work. Furthermore we have commenced our Science Unit; Animals Including Humans. In PE we have begun our Tag Rugby sessions which have been met with lots of excitement and enthusiasm, in addition to Tag Rugby next week we will be starting our Gym sessions.

To support learning in English lessons we are taking inspiration from the Blackout theme and will be writing formal letters based upon children that have been evacuated from large towns and cities. Our current Mathematics unit is Place Value and I have been very impressed with the resilience and dedication shown by the children to further their learning.

I hope you all have an amazing weekend!

Sports Week

Well despite the rain we did manage to do lots of exciting sports this week. Tigers Trust ran a brilliant football tournament involving all of KS2. Everyone visited Brandesburton Bowls club and had a great time learning to play flat green bowls. Class 3 and 4 joined in a bench-ball tournament on Wednesday. On Friday we had our annual non-stop sports day doing a range of activities including Mr Barnes bootcamp, three in a bucket, hockey, tennis and lots more. Fingers crossed for good weather on Monday for re-arragned sports day.

What did you enjoy the most? Is there anything you would like to include next year.

World Book Day

What a brilliant day we have had! We loved all your the amazing costumes.  Which character did you come dress as?

We have done lots of book related activities today and, at several points during the day, we have all stopped to read our favourite book for the Readathon! Everyone has successfully completed their Readathon and can now collect their sponsor money  (thanks to those who have already sent it in)
