Welcome to 4GB class page!

 

Hello, my name is Mrs Bloor and I teach one of the Year 4 classes. I have been teaching at Offley since 2008 and have taught in most year groups. I am married and have two boys who are at the other end of the education system! James has recently graduated from univeristy and Henry is about to start university! I love animals and have a tortoise called Terri who is in her 90's and a Cavapoo called Lulu who I love taking for long walks. During the first lockdown I became involved with a hedgehog rescue centre and help them out by fostering hedgehogs whilst they are rehabilitating. I currently have a hoglet called Lady Loki, she's about 8 weeks old. I am also passionate about sustainability and developing the school grounds to encourage more wildlife to visit, so if you have any ideas do let me know.

Week ending 28.1.22

In English this week we have continued with our text 'Escape from Pompeii and the children have watched videos which recreate the effects of the eruption and the experiences of being part of it. They have used these to help develop language skills and add detail to a diary about Tranio's experience on that day. They have also considered and produced a reasoned argument as to whether Tranio and Livia should stay on the boat or return to Pompeii. We are continuing with this next week as well as developing our use of direct speech.

In Maths we have had a fun week investigating symmetry of lines, patterns and diagonal lines of symmetry. They have used mirrors to reflect patterns and check they are symmetrical. They have created and completed symmetrical patterns and pictures. Next week we begin to look at tenths.

Science this week had us investigating the 3 states of water and how heat and cooling can change water from one state to another. We looked at the effect of salt on ice balls and observed the evaporation and condensation processes.

In Geography this week the children were amazed to learn that some of the mountains and hills they have visited in this country were volcanoes millions of years ago but are now extinct. They were able to label them on a map of the United Kingdom.

Great fun was had in 4CS this week as we used tuned and untuned musical instruments to create a piece of music which reflected a picture they had created in response to music they had listened to previously. 4GB completed the same activity last week, so this week concentrated on Diwali and drawing their own rangoli patterns. Next week we begin our art/DT project based on our geography topic of volcanoes.

We were able to take advantage of the good weather and continue our stamina building circuit training, the focus this week being on running style and turning.

A reminder that our homework for this term is on Teams, Showbie and also this page. Thank you for those children who have already completed some pieces. We do upload our daily lessons on to Teams as well for those of you who are at home.

Have a good weekend.
