A great effort by everyone, it has been lovely to conclude our year with lots of fun! Thanks again to parents who have supported the children to be creative.

Well done to Joseph, who won ‘best dressed’ in 4T with his Octopuses’ garden costume! We also enjoyed watching performances from Keystrings, who played famous Beatles songs with various string instruments.

Spanish Homework Project

Linking in with our Creative Curriculum, we asked Year 4 to produce a project to bring into school based on our ‘Spanish’, topic. I have been truly overwhelmed by the projects which have arrived. They have included poster boards, 3-d models, art/crafts, country fact-files and lots more! Thank you for supporting your child to be All Saints learners, who are creative, curious, independent, resilient and communicative. The children have thoroughly enjoyed it!

We will be announcing 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes for the projects shortly!

The Maritime Museum and the Old Dock experience

IMG_1263

On Tuesday 7th February, 4T enjoyed a fun filled day at the Maritime Museum. We enjoyed an informative and exciting trip through the Old Dock, which is underneath John Lewis! The Old Dock, originally known as Thomas Steers’ dock, was the world’s first commercial wet dock. Did you know that the bricks left standing today are 300 years old?

Next, we explored the Titanic ‘Untold story’ where we dressed up as people from the past and watched the tragic historical event unfold on a video. As well as learning about the trade of cargo and products including cotton, tea, coffee, tobacco, spirits, we also learnt about the slave trade and how Liverpool was involved all of those years ago.

After lunch, we participated in a ‘Voyage of discovery’ workshop, where we learnt lots about dates and the events of the Titanic. We were shocked to discover the truth about who survived and who perished in the North Atlantic ocean.

As curious historians we had a great day!

 

 


All aboard for the Titanic afternoon tea experience!

4T start working with Data.

Children from 4T began working with Data today.

 

First children accessed the website: ztype

Here children were able to develop their typing skills.

Children then collated their scores using a board.

Using Excel, children were able to collate the data from the board.

Sort it into order and create graphs.

 

 


Welcome back 4T!

Welcome back to a busy and exciting Spring term. Please read our 2017-year-4-spring-newsletter and maritime-learning-log to find out about important information about the Spring term.

Our trip to the Maritime Museum will be on Tuesday 7th February which will support our learning about the Old docks in Liverpool.

4T will have swimming lessons every other Wednesday as well as brass lessons on the alternative weeks. Please ensure that your child has the correct PE/swimming kits and practises their brass instrument at home and returns it for their lesson on Wednesday.

Maritime Launch Day Friday 27th January – Dress to Impress

Year 4 will be launching their new Spring topic on ‘Maritime Liverpool’ on Friday 27th January.  They will take part in many exciting activities including designing a Titanic menu for an afternoon tea, whilst attending a ‘1st Class Titanic Experience ‘

Children may come in fancy dress for the day, dressed to impress for their 1st class afternoon tea.  Ideas can be taken from the period of 1910-1912 where they wore flowing skirts, scarves, hats, ruffles and lace.  They also liked to pile their hair in curls on their head!  Gentlemen were very smart, wearing dickie bows and smart suits.

We are looking forward to seeing your imaginative ideas and to see who the prize winner of the day is!!


4T Christmas party

Today we had a Music and Language celebration assembly where children performed in the school choir, gospel choir, vocal group, brass, woodwind, French, Spanish, Mandarin, Greek and Makaton groups. A very busy but exciting morning!

After playing with toys and games, 4T have had a lovely Christmas party with lots of eating, singing, dancing and playing pin the ears on the elf.

Thank you for your continued support. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from 4T and Eddie the Elf!
