TRIP TO THE JEWISH SYNAGOGUE

We visited a Jewish Synagogue in Sheffield and were shown around by Rabbi Gollom.

We had the opportunity to see the Ark, Torah Scrolls, Ner Tamid, Bimah and the Menorah.
We even heard Hebrew spoken aloud and were allowed to touch the precious parchment – Did you know it is made out of cow’s skin and a precious ink?

This week in Y4

 

English:  This week we have been exploring the world through the eyes of a beautiful Egyptian princess, Heb-Nefert.  We have described her character and examined the text carefully looking for adjectives, verbs, nouns and adverbs.
Find out more about Heb-Nefert at:

Maths: We have enjoyed learning more about multiplication – and in particular the Commutative Song – “flip flop go the factors”!!
If you would like to practice this at home the link is here:

History/Geography:  
We learnt about the development of the Egyptian civilisation and why the River Nile is so important to the Egyptians.   We know the Egyptian period is separated into the old, middle and new eras.  We can describe some uses of the River Nile.
This photo from space shows how the River Nile dominates the country of Egypt and its settlements.

Class 4 have been doing some fab things – “Oh no we haven’t, Oh yes we have!”

The Authors

In English, Class 4 has been learning about the story The Tunnel by Anthony Brown and writing what might have been in the tunnel and our own script.

In R.E we’ve been learning about Judaism and what a synagogue is and what a bar mitzvah is and a bat mitzvah is. We also named some of the things in a synagogue and we did some questions about Judaism and we even got to touch some things what Jewish people use in a synagogue!

In maths, we’ve been learning about the perimeter of shapes what is really fun and going on computers for times tables and division.

In science we’ve been learning about the food chain and if the food chain loses something there will be more… and less…

In PE we’ve been doing invasion games with Jake and Gymnastics with Nathan and using class dojo.

We’ve been over to the ICT suite to do computing on purple mash and my maths for multiplying and division.

In French with Mr Townsend we have been learning about animals and more French words.

We’ve been doing assessments in SPAG, maths, reading and writing.

Class Four had a great time.

Year 4 are Tudors for the day!

This week we visited Gainsborough Old Hall (the former home of Lord Thomas Burgh) and re-enacted the Great  Banquet attended by King Henry VIII and his wife, Catherine Howard.

We worked in the kitchens – it was hard work!  We had to serve and provide entertainment at the Great Banquet.

We explore the Old Hall including The Tower, Ghost Corridor and The Solar Room.

Road safety week in class 4!

As part of Road safety week, class 4 unpicked a story about a girl who didn’t follow the rules when crossing the road. She found herself in a very risky and dangerous place. Class 4 discussed how the accident happened and how to avoid it happening again.  They were really enthusiastic about how they could keep safe and a few suggestions were: ‘Stop, look and listen’ and ‘We should never cross the road, between two parked cars’.

Well done class 4, great ideas for keeping safe while travelling to school. 

Please follow the link to hear their story.
