Year 4 news...
Well Being Day
On Thursday 24th November, we celebrated ‘Well Being Day’. Year groups carried out various activities throughout the day. Some of us had the opportunity to take part in peer massage- this was very relaxing! Others participated in Lego Therapy, which we loved! One class even had a karaoke session- this made us feel GREAT! Thank you Mrs Porter for our wonderful yoga session. It was a relaxing and lovely day at Mersey Park. We loved coming into school in our comfy slippers!
Theseus and The Minotaur
We love our new topic ‘Ancient Greece’! We are enjoying learning all about the Greek myths. We can’t believe how frightening ‘The Minotaur’ is. It was great fun creating acetate art based on ‘The Minotaur’. We think our silhouettes of him have turned out great!
What do you think?
Mad Hat Day
We have been raising money for our local charity ‘Claire House’. The children were given the opportunity to come to school in a funny hat for just £1. There were lots of prizes given out for the funniest and most wild hats. Mersey Park you are looking fabulous!
The Vocabulary Parade has been a fun way to celebrate our love of wonderful words and varied vocabulary. Lots of children in KS2 have put lots of effort into making their costumes for the Vocabulary Parade. Can you guess which word each child has dressed up as?
Thank you to Swetenhams Chemist for our fantastic fitness session. We had great fun using the pedometers to count our steps. We couldn’t quite believe how many steps we actually did throughout the day!
Sports Day was a success! We managed to complete all races without any rain. Thank you for coming to see us in our races. We had great fun competing against our friends.
We had the most incredible time at Barnstondale. We carried out so many exciting activities including; abseiling, rock climbing, rifle shooting, zip line, and even archery! It was so lovely to spend time with our friends and teachers. What a way to end the year! Take a look at the photographs below to see the fabulous time we had:
We made our own Stone Age printing blocks using cardboard and string. We glued down string to create a Stone Age inspired pattern. We then painted the string and printed the patterns onto our topic books. What do you think?
Antoni Gaudi Geckos
We have been creating our very own ‘Antoni Gaudi Geckos’. We used wire, newspaper and masking tape to create our shapes. We brought them to life with colourful tissue paper. We think they look great!
We have been thinking about special things we would take on a journey. We realised our Play-Stations can actually be replaced and are not that important! Mrs Griffith said her teddy ‘Kitty’ is definitely irreplaceable. Can you believe it is 27 years old?
