Welcome to 4KA's class blog.
Please have a look at all of our exciting learning.
Life before video games...This afternoon we went ‘technology free’ and used our team work skills, manners and growth mindset to play a variety of board games. We also complimented each other by sharing secret messages!
World Cup fever has struck in 4KA! We’ve been very busy making England flags, designing tour buses, writing football songs and creating our dream team! ....
It’s coming home!
Today in maths we are practising adding and subtracting money using coins.
We learned more of Jabberwocky today. We explored the rhyming patterns and the structure of each line of the poem.
Today in English we began to learn the poem Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll. We needed to use our imaginations to decide what we thought the nonsense words might mean.
These are our focus spelling words for this week.
Today was the final day of our WOW week. We celebrated our achievements by having an Oscars themed movie afternoon. We wore our best clothes and ate the snacks we made yesterday while watching The Wizard of Oz.
Today was day 4 of WOW Week and we practised our cooking skills, making samosas and chocolate cake. Yum!
Day 3 of WOW week: today we had fun riding bikes, trying out our archery skills and making bird feeders. We also had a very relaxing time sketching nature in the forest area.
Day 2 of WOW Week was our trip to Conkers. We had an amazing time! The children behaved fabulously and were fantastic ambassadors for Joseph Cash. We watched a film in the 4D cinema, built shelters in the woodlands, had a train ride, played in the huge adventure playground and explored inside the Discovery Centre. Phew! Everyone was exhausted when we got back to school!
Today was the first day of our WOW week. The children made some amazing shadow puppet theatres, and using their own puppets, they put on puppet shows for each other. The children displayed some brilliant growth mindset skills and worked collaboratively with each other. They made lots of mess-the classroom looked like an explosion in a glitter factory!
Science - Look at how much the coloured paper has faded when it was exposed to the UV rays from the sun!

This morning we took our learning outside to have a go at performing act 4 scene 1 from Shakespeare’s play Macbeth. We tried to use our voices and movement in the same way as the witches.
