Peacock Class

We are a mixture of Year 3 and 4 children and our teacher is Miss Kemp with  Mrs Delaney, Mrs Moreton and Miss Tickle supporting us.

 

Our main topics for this year include:

‘Awesome Egyptians', 'Rumble in the Jungle' and 'Victorian Rawdon'.

Each topic includes either a class visit or a workshop to excite and engage the children, as well as to enhance the learning experience.

P.E. is currently on Monday (outdoor) and  Wednesday.  On Wednesday,  year four children will be going swimming and the year three children will be doing P.E in school.
Year three, please come to school dressed in your P.E. Kit on Monday and Wednesday.

Year come to school in P.E. kit on Monday. On Wednesday, you don’t need your kit but you do need to wear your swimming costume underneath and bring a towel and spare pants. ( See letter for extra detail).

Homework is handed out on Friday and needs to be returned on Tuesday mornings. House points are awarded for effort and accuracy.

 

Please keep practising your spellings and time tables (plus the linked division facts), as it is so important. This year all years fours will take part in a national times table test which involves knowing all their times tables up to 12 x12. Please also practise telling the time at home as a lot of children find this very tricky.

 

We are using Times Table Rock Stars in school to help the children learn their times tables.

Y4 Residential - Thurs 18th- Fri 19th April

This year we are taking Year 4 on a 1-night residential to Lineham Farm. They will have a chance to experience a range of outdoor and adventurous activities and have a absolutely fantastic time with their year group.

Today, Peacock class had a great World Book Day! We read the beautiful book Flotsam about a boy who finds an old camera washed up on the beach. We investigated sand trays to solve the puzzle of the owners of each selection of flotsam. Everyone enjoyed looking at old cameras with film and negatives and drawing their own Polaroid photo of a character from the trays. School assembly was a great sight where we got to see everyone's costumes in the hall. 

On Monday, the children brought in their projects and really impressed me with the high quality of their beautiful work. Such a lot of time and effort went into them. There were rainforests, paintings, PowerPoints, cakes, games, Lego models, fact files and more. Amazing work everyone. Well done!

Everyone has been writing their Explorer diary this week and doing a great job of editing and presenting their work. Peacocks class are amazing!

Next week  we will be debating deforestation presenting views from all sides. We are also going to begin learning about ancient Mayans. The first parents evening of two is next Wednesday.  Have a great weekend.

Peacock news week 2!
19/01/2024 4:05 PM

We have hit the ground running with our new fab geography topic 'Rumble in the Jungle.' Peacocks have been finding places around the world on globes and atlases. We have found the tropics and the equator and zoned in on South America to find out more about Brazil and the Amazon Rainforest. Our new reading book is the Explorer by Katherine Rundell which is an exciting adventure story about survival in the rainforest. 

In English, we read the Great Kapok tree and have begun to find out about the beauties of the rainforest and the issues around deforestation. The children created a beautiful Kapok Tree story  booklet which they have started to decorate using collage techniques.  In art, we are studying collage skills and the children will, week by week, create their own rainforest collage in the style of French artist, Rousseau. 

In maths, we have cracked the short written method for division and we have been looking at angles, shapes and lines this week. After a look at qudrilaterals, Peacocks will begin fractions next week.

Year four had a special treat this week as they were out of class, cooking rainforest food with Michelle from Pinnacle. Year three needn't worry though as they will be doing it next half  term. Year three had their own treat this week as they were playing Boccia which is like bowling in PE.

Penny brought in her Blue Peter badge for reading and shared it with the class. Well done Penny what a great achievement! Lots of children have made progress in their timestables this week so have earned rewards today including Sam who retains the TTRS trophy. Keep working on those times tables everyone. 

Another great week to look forwards to with Burns assembly and music week. Have a great weekend.

Wow what a busy half term we have had! Well done to everyone for all your hard work and achievements so far. This week was particularly busy with our fab art day, Harvest Festival and shadow work. We were gaining DT skills using a hacksaw safely to cut wood to create models of Ancient Egyptian shadufs. (Ask the children what they are!) We also made our clay mummies and amulets and over the next few weeks we are going to making a mini sacrcophagus using mod-roc. Alongside these activities, we created Ancient Egyptian jewellery using mosaic and sparkly jewels.

Science has been very exciting this week and we have been discovering how shadows work and learning about opaque, transparent and transluscent objects. We made puppets and created our own shadow puppet performances.

The children sang like angels at the harvest festival and would make any parent proud.

Homework this week is to get your projects done and keep working on reading, spelling and times tabes. Rather than a new list of spellings, I asked the children to review their own spellings this term and write a list of 10 words that they were getting incorrect in writing or spelling tests. No maths homework. 

Have a lovely break. I hope you enjoy Halloween and bonfire night safely!

Best wishes

This week, Peacocks have printed their William Morris designs. They look beautiful!

In science this morning, the children tested rocks for permeability and hardness. Then they used magnifying lenses to examine them carefully. We then looked at them with the class microscope for a closer look.

Please see the class page for photographs.

Homework this holiday is reading, times table practise and projects.

I hope you have a wonderful break!

Reminders…

·       PE is back to Monday and Wednesday next half term. (swimming continues for year four).

·       Victorian Day is the first Friday back on 7th June. Your child can come dressed in Victorian style clothing.

·       Projects are due 1st full week back on 10th June.

·       The year four times tables SATS will take place on the week commencing 10th June.

·       Shoe boxes please for next term’s D.T. project.

Have a happy Easter Peacocks!

Have a happy Easter Peacocks!

Peacocks have had a very busy four days. We started with a wonderful class assembly where everyone did themselves proud with their reading, joke telling, acting, writing, singing, skipping, art work and recorder playing. 

On Tuesday, Year three enjoyed their visit to church for the Easter story and really made me proud with their fantastic listening skills. We enjoyed finding out a little about the Mayans and writing a setting description for the chocolate Tree story myth about the god Kukulkhan.

Today has been fun for everyone (even if we didn't all think cross country would be fun). Everyone did their very best and ran with all their might. Well done to all the winners and well done to everyone else for giving their best. You were fantastic!

Have a lovely holiday (don't forget the shoeboxes).

When we come back, we will learn a little more about the Mayans before moving on to our new topic, Victorian Rawdon'. 

In this new topic, we will be making some CAMS toys so please could you start collecting shoe boxes. Each child will a shoe box each for their design. Sorry I can only put one photo on here!  I can put some more on the website later.

Happy Easter

On Monday, the children brought in their projects and really impressed me with the high quality of their beautiful work. Such a lot of time and effort went into them. There were rainforests, paintings, PowerPoints, cakes, games, Lego models, fact files and more. Amazing work everyone. Well done!

Everyone has been writing their Explorer diary this week and doing a great job of editing and presenting their work. Peacocks class are amazing!

Next week  we will be debating deforestation presenting views from all sides. We are also going to begin learning about ancient Mayans. The first parents evening of two is next Wednesday.  Have a great weekend.
Best Wishes Miss Kemp
