Year 4 - Hawthorn

Our trip to Leeds Town Hall

 

We have just returned from an amazing school trip to Leeds Town Hall, where we performed songs with children from around the city to a packed venue. We had a great time, so good in fact that the singing continued on the bus as we made our way back home! 

 

A massive thank you to Mrs Heffernan, Mrs Unwin and Mrs Haining for helping us out throughout the day.

 

Below are a few pictures that show what fun we were having. 

 

 

Summer Term 2 Update

Hawthorn have an exciting half-term ahead!

Our topic is entitled: 'There's no business like show business!'

Over the next few weeks, we will be studying film narrative in literacy, making clapper boards in art, performing in the school production and going on an exciting school trip to 'The Big Play' at Leeds town hall. This event will see the children playing their ukuleles in a huge concert with lots of other children from around the city. 

We have already filmed ourselves in an interesting and informative tour of the school. The video will be on the website shortly.

Rounders

In rounders this week we have been learning to throw and catch. There are two different ways we can catch the ball. For example:

  • Pointing pinkie fingers together
  • Thumbs together

Or you can do a one handed catch.

The most easy way we have learnt to throw is to throw under arm.

In Athletics this week we have been running and timing each other. We also have been finding out the fastest way to run. Also we used stopwatches to time the fastest run.The fastest time currently stands at 6.00 secs .

Sewing!

In art, we’ve been learning about how to sew.

Some people did cats, their initials, bees, clash of clans shields, leotards and many more. As soon as people  got the hang of normal sowing, we then tried cross stitch which looked like this:

Welcome to Year 4 - Hawthorn!

 

Welcome to the brand new web page for Hawthorn class! 

 

We are just finishing our topic on ancient Greece which has been very exciting! We have done lots of work on Greek myths, their Gods and the everyday life of people in this time period. We had lots of fun making pottery in the style of ancient Greeks, although it was very messy!

 

We have also enjoyed a morning at the ice skating rink in Leeds. A great time was had by all, even though there were a few bumps and bruises! Photos coming soon!

 

Have a great half-term!
