Welcome to the Mandarin Ducks! (J5)
This Autumn term we will be exploring the theme of Ancient Greece throughout our curriculum subjects. Stay tuned for more!
To start the term, we will be looking at our class mini-topic which is all about South Korea. We will also of course, be looking at the colourful Mandarin Ducks!
The class have worked hard to produce an excellent assembly about their learning over the course of the year so far.
We covered many topics from different curriculum areas, enjoyed some musical performances, watched demonstrations of PE, saw amazing actors playing roles from our English book story, along with learning many interesting facts about different aspects of our education.
Below are some pictures from this assembly :)
We have had a brilliant time practicing and performing our Year 4 Harvest Festival!
Here are some photos of the Mandarin Ducks celebrating all the food collected for the church food bank :)
December & Spring Term
We have been enjoying the festivities and our new half term's topic of Unfortunate Events in History.
The children had a fantastic time with the Gospel Choir, learning to sing some songs and how Gospel is different to a normal Choir.
In PE we have been looking at Hockey skills, learning how to control the ball and pass accurately to a team mate or location.
We have enjoyed learning about Judo during a demonstration session, learning some basic moves and developing our fitness. Alfie even defeated the instructor in spectacular fashion!
The class have enjoyed taking part in various activities throughout this week, culminating in an active workout circuit that pushed the limits of their fitness levels. Everyone gave it their all and were proud of their accomplishments!
& A special mention to Izzy for going the extra mile with her push ups, showing everyone how to do it with just one hand!
We posted letters home just before Christmas which was fascinating. We even bumped into the local postman who explained how his role of delivering the letters works.
