Welcome back! We've been so excited to welcome Beijing class back into school after a long period of using Google Classroom to learn remotely. Since returning, the class have been engaging in a variety of interesting lessons including a story writing week, science investigations and more.
To welcome the children back after remote learning, we put together a morning of games and activities to slowly reintroduce all of us back to school. We had a great time catching up with old friends, learning new games and setting a new class record for the highest tower!
Here you can see pupils from Beijing class discovering the concepts of area and perimeter using square post-it notes. We were able to determine the area of our school books and compare them with the area of our tables.
In science this term we have been looking at States of Matter. We have been; representing the molecules in solids, liquids and gases with our bodies, planning an investigation and carrying out a fair test to see how far liquids travel.
In English we have been writing third person narratives based on the story 'My Name is Not Refugee'. The book contains beautiful illustrations that the children have used to inspire their writing. Here you can see some of the wonderful drawings Beijing class have made to go alongside their stories.
What a great start to the year! Beijing class has been working hard to discover more about our topic -'What a Wonderful World'. We'll be embarking on all new experiences including; design a computer controlled toy, comparing the Caribbean and UK, writing our own newspaper articles and much more! Check our class page throughout the term to see what we've been getting up to.
It wouldn't be Christmas without some Christmas themed maths! The children have been cracking codes, plotting trees on graphs and applying their knowledge of shape.
Designing toys and coding them has been a huge part of our computing this term. Take a look at some of the amazing designs the children created digitally!
We worked very hard on our arguments and the children were proud to read them aloud to the class. They each presented a balanced argument, examining the views from both sides before giving their own thoughts.
To eat a pig or not to eat a pig? That is the question Beijing class have been wrestling with over the past half term. You can see the children engaged in a protest, arguing for and against eating Wilbur the pig for Christmas!
Here we are in our music lesson finding the pulse of a song. We have been looking at lots of different genres of music, with a particular focus on Caribbean music this term.
Welcome back! We are so happy to be returning to school and to be teaching all of our wonderful pupils. We have an exciting year planned for our year 3/4 class with many positive changes coming our way. There's lots of new things to learn this year but if we work together as a team, we can accomplish anything! Beijing class has had a great start to the term and we can't wait to carry on with our learning journey and have a collection of new experiences and memories.

We have been acting out characters from our current novel - 'Charlotte's Web'. Here we can see our class acting out calling for the farmers when the pig escapes and even trying to capture Wilbur before he runs away from the farm!
This year in Computing we have been creating our own games! Here you can see the class coding their educational games on iPads and also helping their teacher to code a game correctly.
