Woodford Primary School

Year 4 - Cherry Tree

Today in maths, we rescued Pudsey and Blush by breaking a code to get them out of a locked room and we managed to get their bows and patch out of a case. We got an email from the B.I.G Chief of the BBC to say thank you.

We were able to do some exercise with Pudsey at the end of the day.

Happy Children in Need Day Cherry Class!

Dogs Trust Visit - 08.11.19

Today, we were visited by Stacey from the Dogs Trust and her dog Midnight! Stacey talked to us about how to stay safe around dogs and explained that this is for our benefit and their benefit!  It was a really fun, interactive session and we should now all be experts when it comes to being around and looking after dogs.

Here's Caelan and Jess C along with Harry H and Sophia from Cedar posing with Midnight!

VIKING DAY

Today, we have had the most fantastic Viking experience. We had two brilliant visitors, Mr Lewis who helped us to create some stunning pieces of wave art by mixing paint colours and using a variety of painting techniques. It was a lovely, relaxed, creative time. We also had our Viking visitor Ragnar, who told us tales of the Viking gods and their cosmos. Then, we were archaeologists and we dug to find Viking artefacts; we found combs, pottery, coins and jewellery. It was fascinating. Ragnar then taught us to read and write in Runes and we were able to translate some writing and scribe our names.

Finally, we played an ancient Viking games called Hnefertafl. It is a bit like chess, but much more fun!!

Please look at our amazing photos and see if you can find your Viking self.

Aspirations Day 2019 - 06.09.19

The children enjoyed a fantastic climax to a busy first week today as we welcomed some of our parents in to school to speak to the children about their career.  Over the course of the day, the children experienced workshops from Mrs Barnes who is a Naval Systems Programme Manager, Ms Blackler a 999 Call Handler, Mr Barker who runs a security company, Mrs Whiting who owns the Flower Cafe on the Barbican, Staff Sergeant Berry who spoke about his career in the army and Mr Hockley who is a paramedic!  We'd like to thank all the parents who gave their time - I know lots of our children were inspired by what they saw.

Today we have looked at boat designs. We have tested a variety of hull shapes and sizes. We tested how much cargo they could hold.

We found out that we are great boat designers! Our hulls could hold up to and in excess of 100 discs!

Red Nose Day

Red Nose Day 1

On Friday, we went to the Eden Project and learnt to become Rainforest Rangers. We learnt how to chop away the undergrowth so that we could explore.

We went into the rainforest biome and discovered many plants that we could use so that we could survive in the rainforest, if we became Rainforest Rangers. We found plants that could purify water, plants that we could eat and plants that could provide us with shelter.

It was the most interesting day.

On the way home, we sang Yellow Submarine!

We have been working hard using our learning in science and D.T. to create a Christmas light photo using our knowledge of electrical circuits. Some of us had lights and some had motors.

We had such fun creating them and they all look amazing.

We have had the most amazing World War 2 experience today. Our visitor, We have learnt so many interesting facts, for example, the government gave children a set of rules that they had to live by such as 'always smile.' Can you remember the others?

We had a go at code breaking, like Enigma. We were brilliant at this.

After lunch, we learnt about sending messages by semaphore and Morse code. We had to read and decipher a code, then dispatch our pilots with supplies to drop at a certain location - all given in code. Some times we were right and sometimes we dropped the wrong supplies in the wrong location. We could not retrieve the supplies that were dropped in the wrong location!

We also had the opportunity to handle some artefacts, some were from the 1940s and some were replicas.

What an amazing opportunity for everyone.

Well done for dressing up in World War 2 clothing. You all looked fantastic! 

A big thank you to Mr Smith who visited year 4 today to share artefacts belonging to his grandfather during WW2.

Artists

Artists 1 "I feel like a real artist!"

We have been learning about nonsense poems. We have explored many poems and found out a lot about how to write them.

We discovered that they often start with 'There once was an old...'; they always have 5 lines; they are funny; lines 1,2 and 5 rhyme and lines 3 and 4 rhyme and they have a particular number of syllables on each line.

Watch this page...we might publish some of our work next week!
