It was such a pleasure to once again welcome in the parents and grandparents of our Year 4 children.
We have been learning all about teeth and today we made models of our mouths using clay or plasticine. We had to make sure that we had enough room in the gums for all 28 teeth and that the teeth were shaped correctly.
What a fantastic day Chawson have had today!
All of the children from Reception to Year 4 got to meet Lucy and complete their fun fitness circuit with her. They all gave it 100% effort with smiles on their faces! The atmosphere was electric. Lucy then delivered her assembly, demonstrating her amazing judo moves (on teachers and children!), spoke about her world championship and Olympic journeys with her medals and inspired us to always be aspirational of our goals. Finally, she unveiled our exciting new trim trail which the children can't wait to try out! Well done Chawson children for making your teachers proud as always! More pictures are to follow soon of our brilliant day.
This week in Year 4 we have been looking at fractions; unit fractions, non- unit fractions and exploring equivalent fractions using a fraction wall.
The children from Year 4 had an amazing time bell boating on the canal this week. They behaved extremely well and listened to instructions carefully. On Monday, we had a special helper. Can you recognise her?
A great time was had by all and the weather was amazing!!
Year 4 bikeability- 4R had a super afternoon learning a life skill.
The eco team have been busy boxing up the old, empty pens ( 24.4 kg of them to be exact) to be sent off to Terracycle for recycling.
Thank you to the team. They are a credit to the school.
Year 4 had a visit from Kendle M a scientist and an assistant professor at Birmingham University.
She shared information about her career and how she became a scientist and answered the many questions from the children.
'This week Year One have travelled back in time. They have spent the day experiencing school life as a Victorian child. The children have learnt the three R's (reading, writing and arithmetic), had a drill lesson for PE, learnt how to do washing and gardening, practised their sewing and technical drawing and played with Victorian toys. They all enjoyed their day but we think they much prefer school as it is now and so do we!'
Year 2 loved having a visit from Rebecca Redfern following on from their London Olympics lesson. They even got to hold her silver medals!
