What a fantastic performance! We’re sure you will agree that Years 3 and 4 worked wonderfully together to create an entertaining – yet informative – musical production about bees. Over the last few weeks, the children have put in a great deal of time learning lines, listening to stage directions as well as practising songs and dance routines that we very much hope you enjoyed watching. The songs were very catchy too so no doubt you went away with a little “Bee-Bop” in your step. We’ve also had rave reviews from the staff and pupils in the rest of the school who watched the performance too. Well done to all involved!
The last three weeks have flown by in Year 4! We have been very busy exploring the unusual picture book, Flotsam, and using different images to inspire some rather wonderful writing. We’ve written a very engaging piece of text as a scared crab as well as exploring clues from pieces of “flotsam” left by some mystery characters to create an entertaining backstory for them. In maths, we have been getting to grips with mixed numbers and applying this knowledge in different contexts, such as on a number line, using part-part-whole models and comparing and ordering.
Meanwhile, history has taken us back to the Viking era where we’ve been creating timelines and considering what different sources tell us about the Vikings to try and answer the question, were they raiders, traders or settlers? In science, we have been looking closely at evaporation and condensation as well as the water cycle.
In addition to all of this, rehearsals for our upcoming Bee Musical have been well underway and we are very excited to perform this on the morning of 17th May. We can’t wait for you to see it and – trust us – you’ll be singing all the songs on your way out as they’re very catchy!
