Eva’s update

Today, I received an update from Eva’s mum about some of the fantastic activities that Eva and her sister, Lola, have been doing over the past months. 

For their living things project, Eva and her family studied caterpillars and their transformation into butterflies. The girls had 5 caterpillars which they watched grow and saw them form chrysalises. Next, they were put into a butterfly enclosure until they became butterflies. They were then fed fresh fruit and the girls released them a few days later.

At the start of lockdown, Eva and her family we were lucky enough to get an allotment locally. The plot was a huge mass of weeds but the girls have worked so hard in getting it up to scratch and have planted lots of fruit and vegetables. They have studied the plant life cycle and the allotment has really brought it to life for them.

They also took part in a competition on the allotment to build a bug hotel which has been placed in the allotment’s nature garden.

Eva has enjoyed studying electricity and building circuits and understanding what types of components are needed to make a complete circuit.

Eva and Lola have also both been studying different countries and cultures.

Best of all, Eva can now make a brilliant cup of tea and has mastered a chilli con carne this week!

Wow Eva – this is wonderful! I can see that you have been very keeping busy and it’s fantastic that you have been learning so much in a fun and practical way. Well done!

Fantastic Jurassic World recount and film review

For his English project, Aidan decided to write a retell of his favourite film, Jurassic World, along with a review of the film.  Aidan has worked so hard on this piece of work; first by writing a draft of the story and then editing and improving it.

He and his family have put so much effort into this but it has also given Aidan an excuse to re-watch the film several times too, which I’m sure he was very happy about!

It has taken him several weeks to complete this piece of writing but he has worked hard and has shown great perseverance. Well done Aidan – what a great piece of writing – you should be very proud of yourself!

Excellent Egyptians work

For her Ancient Egyptians project, Elissa has created this fantastic board game. What a wonderful idea! When we are back at school, I would love to play it and I’m sure the rest of the class would too! Well done Elissa.

Fabulous French!

Year 4’s French lesson this week was about clothes and food. It also contained a recipe for crepes (pancakes).

Jack’s family followed the recipe and sent this message and some photographs to share with you all: “We have really enjoyed making crepes for our French lesson today and we have enjoyed eating them for lunch.”

I’m so pleased you enjoyed making crepes – they look delicious! Well done Jack and family!

The recipe is below – why not try making some with your family?

Year 4 update 4.06.2020

Hello Year 4 and families,

I hope that you are all well.

Today I received a message and a some photographs from Rowan’s family who wanted to share some of the things that they have been doing during lockdown.

This week, Rowan’s older brother’s school held a virtual sports day so the whole family decided to attempt some of the challenges at home.

Here are photographs of Rowan and his sister Libby doing the stork challenge, jumping over an obstacle and the long jump – I hope no one fell into the paddling pool!

They have been planting their own vegetables.

They have also been cooking rainbow toasties!

As well as these activities, they have also been doing lots of school work.

Thank you so much to Rowan’s family. It’s great to see that you have been enjoying doing lots of fun activities. Wow – what a wonderful idea to set up your own sports day at home! Maybe some of the other members of Year 4 would like to try this. I wonder what other activities you might choose to include in your very own sports day?

As always, I love to receive your pictures and to read about the activities that you have been doing at home. If you would like your messages and photographs to be added to our blog, please email them ‘For the attention of Miss Guy’ to postbox@rushall.walsall.sch.uk

Take care everyone.
