Welcome to 4JP's class page! On this page you will find examples of our work, including writing, photos and art work. We have enjoyed a variety of books this year, including Ice Palace, Krindlekrax and The Iron Man. In term 6 we are reading a new text - Varjak Paw! Throughout the term we will be adding more work, so please pop back to have a look!
We have our own 4JP email! If you wish to contact us, please do so with the secure form below - we will be checking it regularly. We welcome your comments and suggestions.
In our Power of Reading book this term, the main character, Varjak Paw, goes out into the city and needs to find shelter. In week three, we worked in teams to build shelters. We were all given the same materials and equipment, and each group came up with completely different designs, some even had added extras such as welcome mats and washing lines!
This term, our Science topic is growing and living. In week two, we worked together to create a new flower bed on the edge of the school field. We look forward to watching them grow.
Term 5 - The Iron Man
Iron Man Junk Models - Reduce, Re-use, Recycle!
The Iron Man is happiest when he is sat in the scrap-yard, munching delicious metal. We thought lots about scrap-yards and the recycling process. As a class, we collected lots of junk and built models of the Iron Man.
In Maths we use Numicon to support our learning. This week we have been using it to reflect shapes and patterns across a mirror line.
Term 4 - Krindlekrax
Our book for Term 4 was Krindlekrax. The book allowed us to explore different styles of writing, from Information Texts about crocodiles, to writing in role as a main character.
"I liked Krindlekrax because it was an interesting story. I liked that it had lots of different characters. My favourite part of this topic was when we made Krindlekrax models out of junk."
"I liked the story because the main character, Ruskin, got to be a hero - which is what he always wanted to be. He didn’t get to be the hero in the play, they gave it to the bully because they were all scared of him. I thought it was sad when Ruskin’s best friend died, but in the end Ruskin got revenge and defeated Krindlekrax. Then he was the hero."
Easter Church Service
In the last week of Term 4, we led the Easter celebrations with two church assemblies.
We worked really hard to learn our words and share the Easter story. We were pleased that so many of you were able to come along and enjoy our assembly. Miss Perrett was very proud of us!!
