Imogen from Maple class decided to write her own traditional tale at home. We thought it was fantastic so she typed it up so it could be shared on our blog. See what you think!!

Beech Class Stories

JanuaryPosted by Year 4 Fri, January 27, 2017 15:53:09
Today we visited Beech Class who read us their stories they have written based on The Three Little pigs. We were very impressed.
Some of our comments were,
I really like the adjectives the girl used for description.
He read really well.
The handwriting is very good, almost better than mine!

We have invited Beech to come to Sycamore so we can read them our stories once we have written them.
Well done Beech.

Traditional Tales Tent!

Yesterday, the traditional tales tent was in Sycamore class. We had great fun listening to The Three Little Pigs read by Miss Lane, with Miss Buller outside acting as the Big Bad wolf. Later in the afternoon, each house had time to sit in the tent and listen to Mr B read The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. We all had great fun.

Collecting leaves to make classification keys.

As part of our science topic on living things and their habitats, we have been exploring and using classification keys to help group, identify and name a variety of living things.

This afternoon we decided to venture into the school garden to explore what different types of leaves we could find there. We then worked in small groups to make our own classification keys.

To help us learn the story of the Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig, we used puppets to retell it in groups. We had a lot of fun.

On Tuesday Lunchtimes in Maple Class we have Year 4 Science Club.
This club has had a great level of interest and so I will be running the club regularly to ensure that all children who want to participate will be able to do so.

So far we have been learning about fingerprinting and this week we explored spinners. Here's a few pictures of the current members and the fun we had finding out how we could make our spinners fall faster.

Looking forward to our next session smileysmileysmiley

The three little wolves and the big bad pig

This week we have been learning an alternative version of the the three little pigs story. We have drawn a class story map and learnt to retell the story through actions. We've had fun practising it many times.

This is Maple Class's story map. Can you use it retell the story yourself???
