We’re the Snow Leopards!

Welcome to our class

 

We’re adventurous explorers, brave and bold.

We try new things and never ever give up!

 

“You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think.”

Our First Week

It's been a busy first week for Snow Leopards at Oatlands Junior School. Along with our class elections, we have worked together to create our class rules and mission statement and set standards high for the rest of the year. 

We have recapped staying safe on-line, how to be good friends and recognising, managing and preventing bullying in school. 

In PE, we have taken part in some games which require good teamwork skills and also began completing the daily mile. 

We have also begun our picture book study, exploring 'Gorilla' by Anthony Browne. 

 

Open Time

Thank you to the adults who came to support children during Open Time. The children loved having their grown-ups in class and doing some fantastically creative writing.

Egyptian Workshop

The year 4s really enjoyed their Egyptian Workshop and got chance to meet and learn from an expert who has visited the Egyptian pyramids and seen King Tutankhamen's tomb. They put on some fantastic dramatic performances, acting out famous stories of the ancient Egyptian era.

Special Mentions
I am very proud of all the Snow Leopards after their first half-term in year 4. I had the hard choice of picking two children for a special mention. The following children have absolutely worked their socks off this half-term and are fantastic role models to their peers. Keep up the hard work!

Antibullying

The children got to watch and take part in a fantastic workshop called the 'Power of One.' It inspired the children to really see that they have the power to prevent bullying and to be an upstander rather than a bystander. 

They also wore odd socks to show that everybody is different and that we should embrace that - that's what makes the world such a fascinating and exciting place to live!

Science and Sound 

Using string telephones, the Snow Leopards have found out that sound waves actually travel better through solids.

Science and Sound 

The children have been looking at how to change the volume and pitch of a sound and how it links to the sound waves produced. 

They listened carefully to order the instruments from highest pitch to lowest pitch.

Design and Technology

The children have designed and made some beautiful tree decorations using felt. They have used careful stitching to add on different embellishments. Don't they look great!

Well done to these two for a super first term in year 4 and receiving a special mention in our final assembly of the year. Both of you continue to impress me with your enthusiasm and effort and you make the most fantastic role models to the rest of you peers. Keep up the hard work in the new year.

The New Year

The Snow Leopards have had a fantastic first week back. 

We have started a new class novel which is 'Operation Gadget Man' by the super children's author Malorie Blackman. 

The Snow Leopards will also be starting their swimming lessons this term which they are all excited for. 

 

Tricky Work on Time

The Snow Leopards have worked really hard this work on securing their knowledge on all the different ways of telling the time. Some even had a go at this tricky jigsaw puzzle matching up different representations of the same time to create a hexagon. Well done to those who showed great resilience in this task!
