Year 4 Clarinet Recital

Hopefully last week you received your invitation to our clarinet recital on Tuesday 28th November in the hall. We will start at 2.30 promptly. It’s time to celebrate all of our hard work and practise! We look forward to seeing you there!

Potters!

Please come and have a look through our classroom window! We have lined up our clay Greek theatre masks on the windowsill to dry. Having planned our designs, thought about the expressions and considered all of the different facial features – the end products are fantastic!

Well done Mozart class! Not only did you all work extremely hard with the clay you were very diligent when it was time to clean and tidy the classroom. Great work!

Anti-Bullying Week

This week is anti-bullying week. In Mozart class we are using Chloe’s story in Mr Stink to think about how we would react or support someone who is being bullied.

Tomorrow we will be sharing our ideas about how we can support a friend with worries.

So far all the children have been thoughtful, caring and very sensible in their discussions. Well done Mozart class!

Maths homework this week

What maths can you see?

Just in case you were wondering what the maths Key Skills activity is about this week…

We are teaching the children to notice maths all around them; look for ways in everyday life to enjoy applying their knowledge and skills. So the image this week is set to generate conversation. Maybe the children will simply count the chocolates; they might notice the multiplication opportunity by counting the number of rows; they may ask questions: what if I ate one? what if all the dark chocolates were removed? The children can write the calculations they spot in the speech bubbles.

There may be other similar pieces of homework during the year. We hope that it prompts the children to notice the maths around them; speed restrictions, distance roadsigns; supermarket 3 for 2 offers; eggs in boxes; how do the different clocks faround the house show different times?

There’s no right or wrong answer – just ideas!

Clarinet

Very impressive progress during the clarinet lessons in Mozart, we have quickly moved on from the initial screeching to a tuneful note of E. Don’t forget clarinets tomorrow; hopefully there has been lots of practising at home! I’m looking forward to it Mozart!

The Dragon Slayer

In Year 4 we have been using a beautiful short film as a stimulus for our writing. We have had some amazing results and the children will be eager to share their writing with you during the TLCs before half term.

If in the meantime you would like to watch the 10 minute film together, here’s the link.

The first of many…

Hello Mozart Class,

What a busy beginning to a new term! I have loved every moment of getting to know the Mozart families and Simon de Senlis children and staff. All the more exciting now I can post pictures and updates of the amazing work that has been going on in Mozart class since September. Here’s to a happy and successful year ahead. Mrs Baker

Key skills for Friday 9th June, 2017

Hello Mozart Class!

What a busy first week we have had: learning and reasoning about perimeter, investigating tooth decay and writing well structured and interesting  paragraphs.

This week, key skills is much as it has been for the last few months: read with an adult three times a week, on your own on the other days.  Practise your times tables and your spellings daily.
