Welcome to Year 4!
I'm Miss Ife, the year 4 teacher at Coppice Farm Primary School. This page is dedicated to information about year 4, useful information across the school year we are involved with and a celebration of our hard work!
P.E. this half term is taking place on a Monday for everyone.
Most of the class are swimming at Carlton Forum. For those not swimming, children will be doing P.E. with Miss Revill.
Autumn 2017 Newsletter
Below is the Autumn 2017 newsletter which contains important information about the year. You should have received a paper copy of this but if not, just let me know and I can get one to you.
Newspaper report interviewing (Week beg. 13/11/17)
Our English topic is Newspaper reports and this week we have been looking at the story of Little Red Riding Hood. We have analysed a newspaper article based around the woodcutter's experiences.
The children had to interview some of the characters as newspaper reporters. Here are some photos of the children interviewing the wolf.
Here are some photos from the last few forest school sessions.
On Wednesday (8th Nov) Chestnut class did a little assembly for the whole school about Remembrance day. We talked about what the day was for, why we wear poppies and who we might think about during the 2mins silence.
Then on Friday (10th Nov) we had a session in class where the children made their own split-pin poppies.
Chestnut and Willow thoroughly enjoyed our Roman day. We made laurel leaf headdresses, marched to Roman commands in Latin, tasted Roman foods, played a Roman board game and looked at some Roman artifacts. It was a wonderful day and the children really made an effort with their dressing up!
Harvest Festival - Friday 13th October 2017
On Friday 13th October, KS1 and KS2 took part in a Harvest Festival assembly where the parents were invited to watch. Class Chestnut performed a poem. Each of the verses were performed by a different group, with the children coming up with the actions. We really enjoyed the assembly. Each class had put in a lot of hard work.
Thank-you for all your food donations. As a school, we were overwhelmed with your generosity!
Forest School - 12th October 2017
After listening to the folktale from last week, we were thinking about saying thank-you to others. The children gave examples of who had said thank-you to them today and how it made them feel. At forest school, we made some thank-you bracelets from items found and gave it to someone else in class.
Maths this week (9th October) - Pictograms
Class Chestnut have been learning about how to interpret and draw pictograms. On Friday, they independently collected their own data and drew a pictogram to show this.
Forest School - 5th October 2017
The children listened to The Origin of Fire: An Apache Folk Tale. In the story, the fox mixes coloured earth with water to create natural paint. We tried this today and the children painted a picture of fire using these paints.
Forest School - 21st September 2017
Today at Forest school, the children took part in a colour hunt where they had to find examples of different colours in the environment. The children found lots of colourful leaves and plants!
First forest school session of the year!
Here are some photos of what the children got up to!
Maths - Place Value Game
This week in Maths, we have been looking at numbers beyond 1000. For this game the children worked in pairs. Each player took turns to throw the dice and decide which of their 4 boxes to put the number in they had just thrown. Firstly, they were trying to make a number larger than their partner's. Then the player with the smallest number was the winner. Finally, the children had to decide on a target number and whoever's number was closest won. The children had such fun!
It has been great getting to know the children over the past 2 days. They have designed their own piece of our 'CHESTNUT' display shown above. It looks so good!
The children have also designed a puzzle piece all about themselves. They talk about what they are good at, what their favourite thing is and what they would like to get better at this year. Each piece has been displayed on our classroom wall.
