Welcome to Class 4!
NSPCC Number Day 2018
The Year 5 children in Class 4 spent the morning taking part in a ‘Battle of the Robots’.
The children planned, designed and made robots that took part in a ‘propel the pellet’ challenge.
Whilst having a morning full of fun the children developed a better understanding of measuring, averages, decimals and recording data. Great team work was very apparent throughout the whole session.
Our trip to Perrygrove railway
On Thursday 25th January, Class 4 were lucky enough to visit Perrygrove Railway. We all had a wonderful day out (despite the showers), learning a lot about the history of steam trains and how the development of the railway affected our local area. We also took part in a treasure hunt, as well as having fun in the treetop adventure and exploring the indoor village. A big ‘thank you’ to everyone who made us so welcome and who taught us all about the history of trains and transport. Have a look at some of our thoughts and memories of the day.
What is there at Perrygrove?
At Perrygrove, there are plenty of really good activities to do for all ages, no matter how small or tall you are! There is an option to do the tree-top adventure, the indoor village – which was my favourite – or to go for a walk in the forest whilst completing a treasure hunt! Maybe you would like a steam train ride, the train can also take you to a park playground. All of them are great!
We did a lot of activities but my favourite one was the treasure hunt. We had five questions to answer and if we got them all correct, we would find the right box and get a badge, a balloon and some chocolate. Subsequently, we got some tree time in the tree house area; we played a big game of tag there. We got to go on a real steam train and learn about their history. We went in groups to visit the engine room, meanwhile the rest of the class had time to explore the inside areas.
We started off the day with the morning register. At about 9.10 am the bus arrived, Mr Smith told us which groups we were in. On the way, all of a sudden, it started to rain.
and most importantly . . . lunch!
I really enjoyed our trip to Perrygrove because we learned a lot about the history of locomotives and how they have developed.
National Story telling week
In Class 4, we have enjoyed studying the story of ‘The Borrowers’ as part of our story telling week. We have compared the book and film versions of the story, before planning our own adventure for the Borrowers in school.
Year 5 photographed parts of the school from a ‘Borrower perspective’ to help us describe the setting of our stories in detail.
Have a look at our ‘Big Write’ stories!
