In 4DJ we have been improving our crickets skills. We have developed our bowling and some of us have even worked on over arm techniques, our catching skills have clearly been fine tuned as we are catching more opponents out and you should see the number of sixes our batters can score! Class 4DJ are a sporting team to be challenged!
Welcome back to school, it's great to see you all again!
We have started our new curriculum learning , Road Trip USA, with a treasure hunt! All of Year 4 have searched for some of the American states and the Native American tribes which settled there. It was fun finding them all and now we have to add them to our maps. Keep checking on this page for our latest updates.
While on our Road Trip USA, we have visited New York and noticed how bright Times Square is! So we are exploring electrical circuits and know how to make a complete series circuit.
Did you know we call a battery a cell?
4DJ recently made Native American fry bread as part of our Road Trip USA.
It tasted delicious!!!!
One of the final pieces of learning from our Road Trip USA curriculum has been to design and make Totem Poles. We researched the meaning of different animals considering the qualities associated with them and then selected some to represent us on our Totem Poles Next we designed and considered how we would make them. As you can see we had different ideas! We are really pleased with them and are displaying them around school. Which animal would you choose?
What an awesome time was had visiting Clifton's music department!
We kicked off our new curriculum 'Playlist' by listening to a bunch of talented, hardworking and inspiring students from Year 10 . We were so impressed with the range of musical genres and types of performances we experienced. Excited is not a strong enough word for how we felt when leaving Clifton, the buzz coming from the children was fantastic with many saying how they couldn't wait to play an instrument or go to Clifton when they finally get to Year 7. Have a look at some of the things we definitely have something to work towards not only musically but also in our ability to show dedication, ambition and confidence.
Well done Clifton, it really was a pleasure!
