Class 4


This term we are exploring the topic of ‘Space.’


Literacy

In literacy we have been watching the short 'documentary' about Pandora, the strange planet from the film Avatar. Follow the link to watch the short clip:

We created a diary about landing on the planet, describing the journey, landing and meeting the inhabitants. We also created our very own space station.


Maths

In maths we have been using different objects to help us find halves and quarters of different quantities. We learned how to write half and quarter using mathematic symbols


Forest School

We have been carrying out research on some of the creatures from Pandora. Our favourite is the ‘Mountain Banshee.’ In our Forest School sessions we worked in groups to create Banshees using natural materials.
