We have had another fantastic and hardworking week, in Class 4J. In English, we have been planning and writing our own newspapers. We had a very special guest speaker- a journalist- come in and speak to us about what it takes to write a good article, what you need to do as a journalist and how to become a journalist. We looked at the different newspapers, highlighting the key elements. We also looked at the key features of newspaper: such as headlines, facts and opinions, captions, paragraphs with subheadings and the 5 W’s (what, where, when, why and who). In English, we also had a SPaG lesson on the past and present tense.
In Science this week, we continued investigating our topic of the human digestive system. In 4J this week, we created our own digestive system out of: plastic bags, bananas, crackers and tights. This was a brilliant lesson as we were able to see the different processes of the human digestive system first hand. Everyone had a go at making their own, in a group. We investigated how to make this investigation a fair test, what we would have done differently and what we would keep the same the next time.
Maths, we have been look at time; both analogue and digital. We have been converting between the two, looking at to the minute time and also the difference between past and to. This is a tricky topic, but everyone tried their best and completed some very good work.
On Thursday – our last day of term- we had a superb Ska inspired day, thanks to Ms Coles and Mr Owens, who organised it all! We listened to lots of different Ska bands, had discussions about what Ska means, what Ska is and their interpretation of the different songs we listened to. We also filmed our part for the Ska video, which will be premiering at the Bloxham fair. We had a brilliant day and the sun was shining, so that made it even better!
We were lucky enough to have golden time this week. Golden time this term is all to do with Art. Each golden time Art activity will be displayed at the fair.
