Jeff and Jeff Junior
Jeff and Jeff Junior ready for another adventure in their suitcase!
Jeff and baby Jeff are also members of 4RG. They love to watch you do your work and they always look out for who tries their best. They also like to see everyone being friends, being kind and having fun. At the end of the week, Miss Gregory chooses someone to take Jeff and baby Jeff home for the whole weekend! You can write in his diary and let the rest of the class know what adventure you've been on. Be careful, they're very mischievous!
Jeff loves to travel, so far he's been to New York, LA and London! He also enjoys trips to the park and playing football in the garden.
Here's Jeff on his way to New York!
4RG's Harry Potter Reading Challenge
Our reading corner!
We love to read in 4RG! At the moment, we are making our way through the Harry Potter reading challenge. We have to complete each challenge to make our way through the films. In order to do this, we need to read at home to collect items like the Philospher's Stone. There's a big prize waiting at the end... First stop, the Hogwart's Express! See you there!
Frank Chapman Day Trip
On Friday 29th September, we spent the day at Frank Chapman. We had a wonderful time using our mapping skills orienteering, as well as doing 'Earth Art' in the afternoon. It was a good job that we took our wellies, it was very muddy! We didn't mind, we made the most of Miss Gregory letting us jump in the stream and get as muddy as possible.
Take a look at our wonderful autumnal paintings. We based them on Monet's work. We had lots of fun drawing and then painting what we could see outside!
We presented them to parents in our production, along with lots of singing, dancing and acting.
Reading Week and World Book Day!
We've had a wonderful week celebrating everything we love about reading! We started the week with a snowy trip to Tipton Library, where we were lucky enough to look around the museum as well as listen to one of our favourite author's books, David Walliams!
We then chose our own books to bring back to school which we are really enjoying. Another one of our favourite authors is Roald Dahl. We listened to a chapter from George's Marvellous Medicine and then made our own instructions for a disgusting potion! We used our brilliant figurative language skills to be as descriptive as possible.
On World Book Day, we came to school in our pyjamas! Miss Gregory and Mrs Jackson didn't complain about coming to school in their onesies in the snow!
Reading Week Competitions
During the half term holiday, we were very busy completing our homework which was linked to Reading Week.
The winner of the Reading Competition was Rosie, who read 16 times! Well done, Rosie
The winner of the book cover competition was Dylan. He made his book cover out of sweets, which was a brilliant and orginal idea. Well done, Dylan!
Don't forget to get your reading records signed when you read, this means you can move up on the Harry Potter Reading Challenge!
4RG do timestable Gladiators!
We know how important it is to learn our timestables, so we are constantly learning new ways to remember them!
Our new game is Gladiators! Here are Mrs Jackson and Mrs Pandolfo showing us their best Gladiator poses!
Ask someone in 4RG to tell you the rules!
Last week, 4RG went on a trip to Birmingham Central Mosque. We had a lovely morning looking around the mosque, as well as looking at paintings and models of the beautiful mosques around the world.
When we arrived back at school, we sketched our own pictures of mosques, some of which can hold up to 5 million people!
Year 4 finally made it to Cadbury World!
We had a great day recapping on what we learnt about The Aztecs in Autumn 2, and we even got to see the Easter Bunny inside the chocolate Factory!
Our favourite bit was definitely enjoying a pot of chocolate with our favourite toppings! We had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed the chocolate that we took home too!!
