As the year draws to a close, the Y4s presented all of the incredible learning we have produced this term in a museum event on Tuesday. We were amazed by how much we had done over the last 13 weeks – from Sheffield City Guides and Joe Scarborough inspired artwork to habitat boxes, adverts, animal stories, paintings and much, much more! If you missed the event, here’s a couple of videos of what was on show:
Well done Y4 for such a productive, enjoyable and exciting year. We have really valued your curiosity and eagerness to learn. We have been impressed by your positive attitudes and the progress you have made since you came to us in September.
Have a fantastic summer!
We’ve been learning about angles all this week. We all know an angle is a ‘measure of turn’ and can define acute, obtuse and right angles. We even had a go at measuring angles using protractors!
Today, we did some problem solving, investigating different angles on a clock face. The children were asked to find as many right angles as they could…turns out there’s quite a few!
Of course, we also discovered that the ‘dab’ is an acute angle!
Here’s some of Mr Tompkinson’s class solving different angle-based problems:
As part of our expedition into why people choose to live in Sheffield, we’ve been looking at the art work of Joe Scarborough. His vibrant, colourful paintings of recognisable buildings have so much going on and tell an exciting story about our city. The children chose oil pastels, crayons or chalk pastels to create their own versions.
Here are some of the (nearly) finished pieces:
We’re very excited because Joe Scarborough will be coming into school on Monday afternoon. I reckon he’ll be very impressed by some of the work produced this afternoon!
On our trip to Sheffield yesterday we took a little time out for some Girl Power!
Looking at the history of steel in our City we discovered that women played an integral part to the development and production of steel. To celebrate and recognise this we showed our own girl power with the Women of Steel.
