In Maths this week we have been learning about Roman numerals. Today we opened up our own shops selling items from our classroom. All the prices had to be written in Roman Numerals and we had to pay with the correct money. At the end we calculated how much money we had made. Click on the picture to see more.
When we got in from break, we noticed that Miss Clark's laptop had gone missing. We also noticed that other items in the room had been moved. We dusted for fingerprints and collected fingerprints from other members of staff. When we got back from lunch we found a note on our board. We used chromatography to discover which ink had written the note. All our clues pointed towards Miss Dore. We went to her classroom and confronted her and she revealed where she had hidden the laptop. Please click on the photo to look at more pictures of our day.
Today we held the trial of Goldilocks in our classroom. We took the parts of the defence barristers, prosecution barristers, judge and jury. We also had the 3 bears as well as PC Plod as witnesses. After we had listened to all of the witnesses it was the jury's job to decide whether Goldilocks was guilty or not.
Year 4 have been learning about decimals. As it was sunny, we took our lesson outside. On our whiteboards, we wrote a decimal number between 0 and 2. We had to place our numbers on the line in the correct spot. It was fun to be in the sun!
For the last couple of months we have been learning 10 country dances with Mrs Jesse and Miss Clark. The dancing is very fun but complicated. Today we learnt The Fireman's Dance which involved lots of switching places. We are looking forward to displaying our dances at Horsham Park with other schools in June.
Last week, we planted some pepper, courgette and squash seeds. We have given them lots of love to help them grow and watered the plants over the week. Today, we have begun to see new life and shoots appear. Eventually, when they are big enough we will plant them outside in the environmental area.
Today Owl Class have been learning about Robin Hood. We pretended we were the Sheriff's guards and planned ways of capturing Robin Hood. After creating wanted posters, we made guides on how to catch an outlaw and wrote descriptions of his hideout.
