The children who went to Aylmerton were very tired when they got back, but still tried their hardest. Today, we have been learning about roman numerals in maths. If your child is not confident with them, try converting these numbers into roman numerals.
In literacy we have been been making top trump cards of our made up villans. We have also been writing a description of them.
Just to be up to date - the score of P.E changing is 6 - -1 to the girls!!

Tomorrow, as you know the children are going on a residential trip at Aylmerton. The children are looking forward to it very much. We will be in groups in a cabin, which Marcy and Freya hope they are in the same one :) . It is going to be very different to what the children are used to. Mr Rix is not looking forward to the mud walk! Everyone else are reallllllly excited for it.
Thanks for reading,
See you next week!

Last week, you might of seen the blog about us designing gadgets. We have all had fun creating innocent looking gadgets to help Alex Rider on his spy mission. The children have created many ideas for their gadgets. e.g a backpack which is a jet pack, a plane bug, and lots more. We also did drama acting out erosion, deposition and transportation. These are some pictures of the children acting.
One child in our class won a dancing competition. Here is a picture of her and her trophy.
Thanks for reading this weeks blog.

Oops! - I wanted to give out some new spellings today and to see if you'sd all learnt the spellings I gave you last week. That'll have to wait until Monday now. However, I'll put them on below and if you're reading this you'll have a head start!
And if those spellings are a bit too tricky...
Have a great weekend. Looking forward to seeing you all next week.
It's been a busy week in 5R. We have been doing lots of tests throughout the week. We have had maths tests, English tests and S.P.A.G tests (spelling punctuation and grammar). We have also been learning about coasts in our spare time. Next week, we will be making some spy gadgets for Alex Rider. The children are excited to make the gadgets! In P.E we are learning to keep close control and dribbling in football. The current score of girls and boys - changing for P.E - is 4 - 0 to the girls. In guided reading we are doing comprehensions.

Thanks to everyone who came to "Meet the Teacher" this week. It was good to get a chance to introduce myself and talk about the things we will be doing this year. Swimming update - We will be going swimming in the Easter Term not after half-term. This should ensure that each class get the opportunity to make more progress.
Thanks for remembering PE kits on Tuesday - and hopefully every Tuesday from now on.
I was really impressed with the children's writing this week - Application to become a spy - formal letter to the head of MI6. The children used all the ideas I shared in the lesson and have already started to develop the structure of their sentences.
We've being working on place value and reading numbers up to 10,000,000. See if your child can read a 7 or 8 digit number!
We even managed to fit in a science experiment to test the absorbency of different grades of paper towel. We took some time out to study seashells up close too and draw them. (see above)
Have a great weekend.
Along with the rest of Year 4, 4C enjoyed an exciting day out at the Anglo-Saxon village at West Stow. The weather wasn't on our side but it didn't prevent us from exploring the village and learning about how Anglo-Saxon people would have lived. The children were able to handle actual artefacts from the period and had to guess what they might be! A trip into the museum allowed everyone to see what had been found at the site and gave them the opportunity to try on helmets and see the type of clothing worn. The children's behaviour was exemplary; they asked appropriate questions and showed a keen interest in what they were being told. Most of them returned at the end of the day with their own finds, tired but very happy. Well done everyone. You represented your school in the best possible way.
What a shame that the weather led to Sports Day ending earlier than expected.
The adults in our class were so impressed with the 'sporting' nature of our class members. They cheered each other on continuously and there needs to be a special mention for Jonah Novak, who helped a fellow year 4 pupil to complete the race when he was struggling. Jonah held the boy and encouraged him to complete the race. By doing this, Jonah sacrificed his own success to help this pupil out.
The track events were intense and exciting and every single member of our class gave their all. This is all we ask for.
Although we weren't able to complete the field events, the class were just as enthusiastic and supported each other. It actually gave me goosebumps, seeing how compassionate they were towards one another.
Our class are really looking forward to the 5th of July, when the conclusion of Sports Day will take place.
