Class 11 have become… report experts!

Miss Laing and Mrs Hardman have been blown away this week with Class 11’s ability to unpick the features of different reports and extensively compare them! This week in Literacy, the children in Year 4 have been thinking carefully about the features of a Non-chronological Report and how these impact on the reader. This has involved asking themselves questions such as: What makes it more appealing? How does it stand out compared to another one? What do you need to remember to include in your own?

We cannot wait for Literacy next week as it will be their turn to create their own! After today, I’m confident that they will all be Light Bulb Leo’s!

Product Progress!

Class 11 have started the planning process for their product in this afternoons theme lesson. The children were getting creative collaboratively, sharing their ideas and beginning to put pen to paper ready to start their first draft.

I’m so incredibly excited to see how this product develops and share it with everybody! Watch this space!!

Some of Class 11 showed their support yesterday on Odd Sock Day for this years Anti-bullying campaign! Well done guys, you looked fab!!!

The whole class also had chance to design and create their own pair of odd socks in the afternoon too!

Eden Camp

To continue Year 4’s very busy week, both Class 11 and 12 had a fab time on their visit to Eden Camp War Museum in Malton.

The children enjoyed exploring the 29 different huts that were once occupied by prisoners, followed by a great old fashioned puppet show (even though some of the front row got squirted with water-whoops!!) and finally finished off with a visit to the museum gift shop.

Later in the week, the children were then Connecting Connie’s in Literacy and produced their own non-chronological reports on Eden Camp as this is our current focus in writing. What super stars!


Thorne Remembers

Last week, both Year 4 classes were fortunate enough to visit the local church and see the absolutely stunning display that has been created for Remembrance Day- including seeing their own beautiful art work that has been on display too! The children also took a 2 minute silence where they were able to reflect on the 100 year celebration and what it meant to them.

Hot dogs, popcorn and film night

Sunset club staff and children enjoyed ‘film night’ to celebrate the end of the half term. Great fun was had by all!
