Today in Year 4 we got into the full swing of our play script writing in both Guided Reading and Literacy. We started off with some dramatic readings of The Twits. The actors in these clips did fantastically well and really captured the scene!
Then we moved on to our writing of play scripts in a slow write! And wow the children produced some amazing pieces of work.
And now! Backed by popular demand. We have the return engagement of the Y4 Selfie Star…. and well done to Jayden who really challenged himself with a really tough self made rubric and today rose to the challenge with a wonderful play script!
Well done Year 4 keep being amazing keep being you!
This afternoon in Year 4 after our swimming trip, we started our new topic in writing on play scripts.
With brand new WAGOLLs at the ready, the children began the critquing and warm feedback process to their learning on play scripts.
We started off by looking very carefully at the features of play scripts and what a play script consists of. They are very unique text types with lots of punctuation and structural features.
After that, we moved onto studying and discussing a wide range of WAGOLLs of play scripts. The children were brilliant at using their checklist to highlight all the scenes, interludes, stage direction, punctuation for performance, speech and speakers.
Once we had modelled and annotated a wide range of WAGOLLs, we moved onto providing our warm feedback so we could write our own Rubrics!
The children produced some amazing feedback and the Rubrics produced look fantastic!
Well done Year 4, keep being amazing keep being you.
Today Year 4 worked on our pre and post learning for maths. Our post learning for decimals brought an end to a very productive topic of learning.
The children applied themselves in a very pragmatic and logical fashion when completing their post learning, and the results were fab! Lots of progress in their decimal work.
The children show cased all their amazing mathematical skills, including multiplying decimals (something that even PC Richard struggled with!), rounding decimals and ordering them in ascending order. We had some great proof of the calculations aswell, using number lines to work logically with our decimals!
After we completed our post learning, we moved onto our pre learning for our topic on money.
It’s very important in learning to be aware of your strengths and limitations and we all have areas to work on including maths and the children were very positive about their own gaps.
Well done Year 4 keep being amazing keep being you.
Today Year 4 popped down to the swimming baths for a spot of swimming here we are before and after :).
Today was another hard working day in Year 4. In traditional Year 4, editing Thursday style, we took to our books to up level our vocab, perfect our spellings and to re work our hard work!
Thursdays is all about making mistakes. Today the children each discussed why making mistakes in learning is important and how editing and really re reading your work can help you to see where you need to improve.
Remember, “your best teacher is your last mistake.” Maybe one for Rufus the dog.
Our own mascot King Calculation is all about making mistakes. Some say he has climbed Everest 20 times and only on the 19th attempt did he succeed. And some say he was the one who actually built Rome in day but on the other days he was practicing his maths!
Anyway, here we are in action…
Well done Year 4 keep being you, and keep being amazing.
Miss Wood and Mr Tompkinson are very proud of you all!
