A busy few days

We have had a fantastic few days in Year 4.

 Today some children gave a dramatic performance of a poem written about the landscape of Chembakolli. We also performed our 'Talk for Writing' story with actions in full, and started learning about how to share numbers equally using bus stop division.

Last week we wrote some fantastic stories about another culture, and gave each other a star and a wish using our best handwriting and our teacher heads!

Black History Month

We were lucky enough to enjoy a workshop this morning from a man from Zimbabwe, who came to tell us about life in Africa.

I'm sure all the children will agree it was a fantastic morning, and a big thank you to Mrs Cameron for organising such a treat for KS2!

Tingatinga Art

As part of Black History Month, we created some pieces of African Art based on the 'Tingatinga' style.

We used chalks on a dark background and created wild animals such as zebras, tigers and giraffes, and then chalked on a desert background.

 I was so impressed with the creativity of your work Year 4, lots of budding artists!

A walk and a visitor!

As part of our topic work we went on a walk around Whinmoor armed with photographs from 15 years ago.

 We found the same spots the photographs had been taken from and then took our own to see the changes.

Today we had a very special visitor. Mrs Grealish is an estate agent and she came to our class to talk about her work and answer all of our questions.

What did you learn about being an estate agent? Do you think it would be a fun job to have? Thank you so much for your visit Mrs Grealish - it was fantastic! A special visitor on PhotoPeach

Whinmoor history

Next week as part of our Topic work we are going to go on a walk around our local area to have a look at the different houses in our locality. We will be comparing the materials they are made from, and judging how old we think the buildings are.

It would be wonderful if you could ask your parents or grandparents if they have any old photographs of Whinmoor so that we can see how it has changed over time.

I had a look on this website Historic photographs of Whinmoor and found some photographs of our school taken in the year 2000, 13 years ago.
