Reading Records will now be checked on Tuesdays - please make sure your child reads every day, including out loud to an adult, and that they record this too!
Welcome to our webpage for 2018/19. Here you can find out about what we are learning and some of the activities we are enjoying in school. If you would like us to see our archived Class 4 page for 2017/18, please click HERE
Safer Internet Day 2019: Consent
On Tuesday 5 February, it is Safer Internet Day, so this week in school we will be discussing the issue of consent - what is posted online, how to manage our digital footprints, if our parents/carers are 'sharents' and where we can look for help and advice. Please take some time to talk at home about what consent means and what we are consenting to - both online and in real life!
The 'Own It' section on the BBC website is full of great videos and articles about this issue - including these Social Media Rules for Parents.
Spring 1 2019: Heroes and Villains
This half term, we will be investigating heroes and villains in fictional stories and in British history. Our jigsaw overview will tell you what else we'll be learning over the next few weeks.
Take a look at this video to find out what 'Pop Art' is...
Our D&T project this half term has incorporated our learning in science about electricity. We had to design and construct a Christmassy light using an electrical circuit. On Tuesday, we spent all day constructing our Christmas trees/angels/scenes of Bethlehem and wiring them up too! Take a look at our fantastic finished products! Merry Christmas from Class 4!
The Box of Delights
In the lead up to Christmas, we are reading and studying a classic children's story - The Box of Delights by John Masefield. (It is the first children's magical adventure story and there's lots of similarities with other famous magical stories to spot...)
Here are our diva lamps - the challenge was to decorate and construct without any instructions at all! (Don't they look great?!)
Commonwealth War Graves Commission
As part of our work about remembrance and the centenary of the end of the First World War, we have used the commonwealth war graves website to find out some information about the men whose names are on the Thorp Arch war memorial. We found out when they died and where they lived in Thorp Arch! It was very easy to search and we even tried to find people with the same names as us - you might be able to find a relative if you click on the link below...
Autumn 2 2018: Remember, Remember
Below is a brief overview of our learning for this half term - obviously we will be busy as this half term always is; it will soon be Christmas! There is also an information evening about the PSHE Curriculum which will take place on Wednesday 7 November at 6.30pm. Please note that information regarding homework expectations is set out in the LEH Homework Policy elsewhere on the website. If you are able to help or support our work, please do get in touch.
Take a look at the trailer for Flo of the Somme too...
October 2018: Leeds Rhinos Dance Coach
This half term we have been working hard on creating a street dance with our coach from Leeds Rhinos. It was very long and we had to practise a lot in order to remember the sequence and all the moves. We really enjoyed choreographing sections in pairs and seeing how adventurous each other was! Take a look at our final performance below...
Thursday 25 October: Class Worship
Yesterday in our class worship, we took a tour through our learning from this half term. We read extracts of our writing about Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone; we shared our artwork inspired by Paul Klee and David Hockney; we bamboozled everyone's brains with our mathematical investigations into calculating with Roman Numerals and positive and negative numbers; we created a timeline of two thousand years of British History; and we thought about scientific theories of creation and the story from Genesis. Take a look at some of our work below - and see if you can sing along with 'The Big Bang Theory' too! :)
Autumn 1: Magical Mystery Tour
Below is a brief overview of our learning for this half term. Please note that information regarding homework expectations is set out in the LEH Homework Policy. If you are able to help or support our work across the curriculum, please do get in touch.
NB. Class 4's Worship is on Thursday 25 October at 9am. (We hope to see you there!)
