A spooky spine week!

Welcome back to a spooky spine chilling week in Year 4. We have had a very busy week and the children have quickly settled back into routines. This is the second week of Bikeability and despite the weather, lots of successful rides took place with children taking on new skills as well as being more aware of road safety. Next week Year 4WW will take their turn for the Bikeability course so those children taking part should remember their bikes, helmets and trainers. The weather is very unpredictable now so a suitable jacket/coat should also be worn. As November the 5th Plot Night approaches, our children have had an extended PHSCE lesson on fire safety including bonfires and fireworks. The fire service provided us with a super resource that includes a children’s guide to learning to stay away from danger zones. The DVD was interactive with a quiz, animations and short clips to help children to be more aware. They loved it and learnt lots too.

This week two new bloggers wanted to have their say. Over to you Fin and Zoe…..

I really enjoyed our spooky writing in English. We listened to a couple of spooky stories and my favourite one was ‘Boo’. We learnt how authors include short sentences and repetition to  build pace and in addition, include lots of verbs and adjectives to put spooky pictures in the mind of the reader. I really enjoyed being spooked, it made me giggle . Fin

I especially liked science this week as we learnt about electrical circuits. I enjoyed connecting wires and bulbs and making power. We learnt about different switches and how they were connected. I really enjoyed exploring a variety of electrical toys and items. Zoe

Have a great weekend
