Hi Willows gang!
I know Mr O'Neil has given you some work to be getting on with, but also check out your class pages as there is some amazing and fun learning for you to do on them. See you all soon!
Earlier this year we had a surprise visitor. First of all he poked his head around the door and because we were all working so quietly he ventured into our room. First of all he sat by the door and then he came right into our room.
In Willows we work hard for short periods of time. If we have worked hard and earned all of our points we get a short award time. Often we choose to play with Lego. Lego is a great toy; it encourages us to be creative and patient. Who knows: we might be the architects of the future! Another great thing about Lego is the role play games we play with the models we have created. Through our play we learn to cooperate with our friends, take turns, listen to each other and offer support. All great skills for now and the future.
Year 4 are studying the work of authors and how they research for their books. In Willows we have been studying animals. We have learnt how to classify them and all about their similarities and differences. Sharks are fascinating so we used the Ipads to research all about sharks. We are going to use this information later to write our own informative poster. We also studied tigers.
Shark Fact Files
As promised here are our informative posters. We used all of our knowledge gained from our research to produce our posters. We organised the information into 4 areas, which we chose and we chose to make our posters bright and colourful.
