Welcome to Year 4 Esther (Miss Copson's Class)
This term, our units include Number and Place Value in maths, The Firework Maker's Daughter in English, plants in Science and Prehistory and Ancient Egypt in history! Ask us what we have been learning!
Our DT unit is ‘Money Containers’. So far, we have looked at a range of money containers and thought about their features and who may use them. Today we are practising running stitch, back stitch and oversewing stitch in preparation to design and make our own money container.
Due to COVID, we could not share our Liturgy in the normal way. Instead we filmed it and shared it with the classes and our families on Class Dojo.
We then led a whole school reflection outside to mark the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month. Each class laid a wreath or cross on our Reflective Area. Miss Copson could not have been prouder of us!
Today, and everyday, We Will Remember.
Last week, we celebrated Wellbeing Week at St Thomas More. We completed activates based on the 5 Ways of Wellbeing to boost our happiness and mental health.
Connect: During PSHCE, we spent time playing games as a class to connect with each. This made is feel happy and boosted our wellbeing!
Be Active: We completed Joe Wicks workouts and Cosmic Kids Yoga stories as well as our usual PE lessons. Exercise is so important to keep our bodies and minds feeling healthy!
Take Notice: During our class Liturgy’s this week, we focused on taking notice of God’s wonderful world. We went on nature hunts, did bark rubbings and played I-Spy to name but a few activities!
Keep Learning: We learnt about the importance of looking after our mental and physical health and learnt tools and tips to help us feel positive and well!
Give: We know giving to others not only helps the person feel good, but also ourselves! We drew pictures and wrote messages to give to someone we love. We also raised money to give to charity!
To end our week, we all dressed in yellow as part of the Young Minds ‘Hello Yellow’ campaign! We raised an amazing £76.32 for this fantastic charity!
