Here is another Halloween activity you could try at home. This one is a bit more creative and can help create a Halloween atmosphere for anyone walking past!
Over the week, we will be suggesting Halloween activities that you could do over the holidays. We hope you have fun! Here is the first one:
There were some absolutely fabulous outfits in both Year Four classes today. We had superheroes, clowns, skeletons, princesses, cheerleaders, witches and many more! Here is just a selection of them:
What an amazing day we have had at Murton Park! The lord let us into the Viking village as long as we completed the chores he asked and earned our keep!
The villagers were incredible and very friendly and we made them equally happy with our fantastic behaviour and positive attitude.
All the kids got involved and really enjoyed it! All the teachers (the slaves!) were very proud.
As part of the build up in our two week ‘Rays of Hope for a Brighter Future’ focus, we are planning and creating dreamcatchers. The weeks explore our feelings of lockdown and the positives that have come from it – and our creative responses will be a positive way to always remember.
Dreamcatchers are said to be a tool to help give the dreamer good dreams by catching bad thoughts and only letting positive ones shine through. We are going to keep them as an installation in school when we have made them to keep the positivity flowing. By Tuesday, the Y4s will have worked in groups to use coloured wool and feathers that reflect our feelings of lockdown, in addition to stating words that we think of when we discuss the positivities of the current times.
We will be sending out the following art challenge next week!
Get your thinking caps on ready for the entry you could include. The deadline for the picture is Friday 23rd October 2020.
We have definitely jazzed up Golden Time in Year Four! Y4GE had a choice of using giant chalks on the balcony, playing Tin Can Alley or Giant Four in a Row or (one of the most popular choices of the year so far) using cardboard boxes to harness their imagination. We had forts, robot bodies, children in boxes, rockets, cars and just general fun!
Y4KB played some exciting party games and designed and made their own hamma bead creations.
