Inclusive Sports

Year 4 has had a fabulous morning being inspired by sports which have been played in the Paralympics. Not only have they learnt and practised the skills to play New Age Curling and Boccia, but they’ve all had to try these sports sat down in chairs! It proved a struggle to begin with but by the end their aiming and throwing skills really had improved!  

Mini water cycle

The past 2 weeks we’ve been investigating states of matter. This afternoon, we have made a mini version of a water cycle. Hopefully this should show water changing its state throughout the 4 stages of the water cycle process. 

Year 4, who can name and explain the 4 stages of the water cycle? 

Wow! 

I think the children’s faces in these photos tell you how fantastic today has been. 

Year 4 really did experience a mountainous adventure this morning. Not only with the 27 feet climbing wall, which so many children managed to climb to the top of! They were all able to pitch a tent without any instructions (or arguements) and learn how to tie a variety of knots. 

A great beginning to Year 4’s Misty Mountain Sierra learning journey. 

Hoodwinked 

Year 3 & 4, your two performances were absolutely amazing! You should all be so proud of yourselves. You’ve all put so much effort into the performance and it really showed. All of you knew your lines, had expression in your voices and you all tried your best. Well done again Year 4. 

If you missed it, here are a few of the best bits… 

Who’s on the radio? Year 4 are! 

Listen to BBC Radio Lincolnshire BBC Introducing Show between 8pm – 10pm tonight (Saturday 25th March) to hear Year 4’s version of Chloey Rose’s Golden Dreams.

Chloey Rose will be chatting with Jonathan Brine ‘about all those Superstars at Grimoldby Primary School who sang Golden Dreams’ 

I believe you can download the broadcast from the BBC Radio Lincolnshire website. I’ll be tuning in to listen to the Grimoldby Popstars, who else will be? 

Times tables games

If anyone has a tablet at home there are some brilliant free apps to practise times tables. Here are just a few of the apps which I recommend. An easy way to find these apps is to type ‘times tables games’ in to the search bar in the App Store. 

World Book Day

Look at us all reading… 

We’ve been investigation similarities and differences between fiction and non-fiction texts using a venn diagram! Their diagrams were full of features by the time we finished!

We’ve also been trying to find out how long it took  the silk worms to make enough silk for  the seagulls to lift James’ giant  peach. So far, we’ve got to 1000 minutes. Can anyone find out how many hours that is?

The Easter Production

The parts have been cast for the exciting Easter Production of Robin Hood. There were so many happy faces as they received their scripts.i think Robin was nearly in tears! Now we just need to make sure we really try our best with practising these lines as often as possible. It’s going to be really hard work over these next few weeks but hopefully it will be worth it! 

It would be brilliant if over half term, the children could watch the film of Robin Hood so they can see their character being played by professional actors. As well as help to get an idea of the costumes they will need for the performance. If you do need any help with ideas please come to see me.

Hopefully see you all on March 30th or 31st.
