British Values Weeks

Individual Liberty

We spent a week focusing on the theme of Individual Liberty - learning what it means to be ourselves, and understanding our rights and responsibilities within society. We studied the books 'Evil Weasel' to find out what happens to people who make bad choices, and 'Giraffes Can't Dance' to find out how important it is that we are all able to celebrate our differences and uniqueness. We created our own mini-books around the theme of 'Free to-be-me' and each child created a picture to add to our 'Liberty' quilt.

Democracy

We spent a week focusing on the key theme of 'Democracy and Rule of Law'. In English, we created a timeline of Democracy in Britain: learning about the history of parliament. In Guided Reading we answered questions about the current UK parliament. In the afternoons, we learnt about laws including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We also held elections to elect a class 'Role Model'. Children also got to vote to choose which story they were read each afternoon.

Spring MFL Celebration

Thank you to all the parents and carers who joined us to celebrate what the children have been learning in French this half term. We really enjoyed sharing our learning with you.

European Day of Languages

On the 26th September, we took part in the school-wide celebrations for European Day of Languages. 

We sang a song, and translated it using our excellent decoding skills, then we listened to a story, and played interactive languages games with our teachers.

International Day of Peace 

On the 21st September, Year 3/4 celebrated International day of Peace. Throughout the day, we took part in various activities which included writing Peace poems, creating peace symbols, working together collaboratively to create class peace painting on canvas. We also participated in many mindfulness and prayer activities promoting forgiveness, calmness and relaxation. 

Autumn 1 Class Celebration 

During the last week of term, the parents were invited in to join us in a prayer workshop. The children and parents joined together to pray the Rosary. We introduced Lectio Divina to the parents to show them how we can pray through scripture. The children and parents also had some time to join in sensory prayer stations. 

 

Toast is 15p per day - please try to send the correct money.

All children should bring their reading book everyday.

Spellings are sent home on a Monday and will be tested on the following Monday.

Food Technology Project

This year, our Food Technology project was called 'Edible Garden'. We looked at herbs and fruits which can be grown in our gardens and used these to produce a range of healthy, nutritious snacks. We also studied the vitamins which could be found in the foods and discussed how these are used by our bodies.

The children learnt a range of skills including: chopping, grating, measuring, stirring, blending and even using the induction hobs.

Christmas celebrations

The children had a special visitor in class today. All children were excited to see Father Christmas and they each received a gift. 

World War One Centenary

The whole school spent a week focusing on the WW1 centenary.

We learnt the song 'You're the Voice' with BSL signing to remind us that we are responsible for ensuring that such atrocities never happen again.
