What a busy week year 4 have had! We started the week with the pantomime which the children thoroughly enjoyed.
We have continued to research Jane Goodall for our writing and practiced our skills of fronted adverbials of time and manner, speech and expanded noun phrases. We have enjoyed learning about Jane’s discoveries and the personalities of the chimps she observed. The children have planned their biographies and have started to write them, editing along the way.
In Science this week we went on an invertebrate hunt in the local environment which was lots of fun! We carefully collected specimens to sketch and identify using a classification key. We mostly found annelids and molluscs and discussed what invertebrates we might not see linking to seasonal changes.
Throughout the week we have put a lot of effort into practicing our Christmas production and finished the week off with a dress rehearsal which went brilliantly! The children have worked hard to pull everything together and have sung their hearts out!
