Mr Happy and Mr Rude

Today we have been looking at how we can be helpful towards other people. We read a story about Mr Rude and Mr Happy and then acted this out. Do you know what ‘manners’ means?

Collecting and Looking at Data.

Today we have been looking at the data we collected last week about the materials in the classroom. We figured out the least and most popular materials.

Then we collected data to look at last week about our favourite materials. We had our ‘researchers’ put these into tallys.


In Class 4 this year our challenge is to read every day. We have been encourgaing each other to read and have even started suggesting books to our friends. At the moment Ethan is reading ‘The Twits’ and has been talking to the class about his favourtie parts. What book are you reading? 


Isla has been busy working on her maths over the summer and has earned herself 6 Mathletics certificates! What a super star! Who else can earn themselves a Mathletics Certificate? 


Mixing Colours.

Today we have started to explore the use of colour in our Topic work. In a few weeks we will be creating our own ‘Up Up and Away’ paintings so we wanted to test out which colours would look good. We found out that you can make a lot of different colours by mixing others!

Time Lines.

Today we made time lines of Charles Darwins life. We talked about him going to university and how he used all his learning to explore the world.

Today we learnt about > or < signs and how to use them.

The Galápagos Islands.

Today we explored Charles Darwins discoveries and learnt all about the tortoises that live on the Galápagos Islands. We wrote down everything we had learnt about the tortoises and then drew pictures and labelled them correctly.

Garlic And Chive Dip.

Today we made garlic and chive dip then tasted it with carrot and bread sticks.

First we crushed the garlic and chopped it finely, then we chopped the chives.

After that we mixed it all together with creme fraiche and sour cream.

Lastly we washed and carefully chopped the carrots into sticks before trying the dip.

Creating Our Own Algorithms.

We used the Bee Bot to help us create our own Algorithms.

We moved him carefully on a map of the United Kingdom to get to a city of our choice and wrote down the directions to follow. We learnt that these instructions are called an Algorithm.
