The children in year 4 have been saddened by the recent news that England players were targeted by racist abuse. Today we have been learning about racism and discovering how we can be allies, supporting people at the receiving end of this abuse. We have created letters and posters for Bukayo Saka, Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and anyone else who has ever experienced at racism. We wanted them to know how proud we are and how we are going to stand up against racism. We hope to continue spreading the message of equality for all. Well done, Year 4!
Together we ran a total of 2820 laps, which is the equivalent to 218 miles!
Thank you for all of the sponsors we received.
We all had a great day running our Race for Life together!
This week has been PE week. We had to choose an Olympic sport and we decided to learn about boxing. We researched different Olympic boxers, found out about world records and discovered how boxers train. On Friday, we looked at some different moves and had a go at non-contact boxing. We made sure our friends were a distance away and told them the move we were going to make before making it. The children had lots of fun trying out some different kicks and jabs.
Year 4 have been planning their perfect, balanced sandwich. We looked at a healthy food plate and discussed different ingredients that we would need to make a healthy sandwich. We have been discussing that we can have any food in moderation. Check out some of our creations!
We then ate our delicious sandwiches and some of us took them home for our families to try.
The Year 4 children have been riding their bikes in school. We completed our Level 1 Bike Ability and now we can ride comfortably through cones, turning our heads and using hand signals to turn. This will support us when we complete our Level 2 and begin to ride on the roads.
Some of the children weren’t able to ride their bikes before the session, but they now can ride comfortably. The other children have been learning some tips and tricks to help them ride more smoothly. We have been using our gears, riding with a partner and using our breaks for an emergency stop.
All of the children worked so hard and have completed their Level 1 Bike Ability successfully. Well done!
We have been working really hard in our PE lessons to build our strength and speed. In our PE lesson, we put our skills to the test on an assault course. We had to run, climb, balance and swing on the rope. We gave it a try by ourselves and then we worked in teams to build our team working skills. Everyone was excellent!
