Year 4 have begun their final term of Physical Development which has a skills focus on Athletics and preparation for Sports Day. We have enjoyed learning about the new activities and skills required at Year 4. We are building up our competence in jumping with speed and distance and also improving our accuracy in throwing for the Obstacle race. This week we will explore another event and gain some valuable practice time.

Outdoor Learning Day 2024 - 4NM

Outdoor Learning Day 2024 - 4NM

Today was Outdoor Learning Day and the pupils of 4NM were excellently turned out for the day. With green clothing, wellies and coats all prepared for the events ahead. We used our school grounds, polytunnel, Eco-shed and propagators to plant sunflower and vegetable seeds. Each pupil received a certificate for their excellent teamwork in planting each item. We will look forward to watering them each day and watching them grow on our sunny classroom window sill. Anyone for lettuce or rocket?

Butterfly release day 2 4NM

At the beginning of Eco-Week , Year 4NM completed their final release of the butterflies that they had grown from eggs, following all the stages of their life cycle. 
Well done to all of our pupils for so carefully observing and feeding their caterpillars and butterflies. We really enjoyed watching the process of metamorphosis every day. The butterflies were so fond of our pupils, they sat gently in their hands before flying to a nearby flower. Such a brilliant experience for everyone!

On Friday the pupils of 4NM began the release adventure for their butterflies which they had been nurturing for a number of weeks while learning about their life cycle and metamorphosis from caterpillar to adult butterfly. This first group were very careful with the fragile insects and we think the photographs really capture something extra special.

4NM Lego Symmetry designs

Year 4 have been learning all about symmetry in pattern and 2D shapes. Using practical materials and drawing activities we have created pictures and patterns to display our knowledge of reflective symmetry. Pupils worked together to create symmetrical puzzles, Minibeasts and garden designs which had at least one line of symmetry.

4NM Revision Week - Spelling Techniques

This week is revision week and our pupils have been experimenting with some different methods to practise their words with the three previous sounds. Year 4 have been working on the different representations of er, oi and ou. We have chosen to add in the new strategies of 'highlight it' and 'choo-choo' words, alongside some of the known strategies. Take a look at our attached photographs for some excellent examples of pupil presentation at our proud cloud wall.
