What are we doing this Term?
This term, Class 4 will be using the KLQ of "How is plastic waste impacting life cycles?" as an opportunity to explore a wide range of diverse subjects, with science being a primary avenue for this.
We will be looking at where plastics come from, how they are classified, and the "journey" of a plastic bag from production to its final destination. We will then focus on "oceans" and the impact plastic waste is directly having upon these ecosystems, with links to physical and human geography as well as the lifecycles of animal which are impacted.
We will explore satirical poetry within English as well as producing news reports and recounts to reflect our Tour de Yorkshire experiences.
Our physical wellbeing will be promoted through our ongoing work with coaches during our Fitness Friday rotation, with our emotional, mental and cultural wellbeing covering the topics of seasonal foods and healthy relationships.
Maths will see us compare and convert units of measure (being linked to our science) with chances to continue to practice calculation skills through problem solving activities.
Our Science theme also links very nicely to our RE question of "how do Religions teach us to care for our world?" and will see us explore ideas surround creationism, evolution and teachings from a variety of religious books to compare how our own and shared beliefs may contribute the protection of our planet.

Should ball games be allowed every break time?
This Term's debate was very controversial but saw some fantastic persuasive skills being used both in the children's writing and in their discussions with each other. Watch our video to get a bit of an insight into some of the points we raised!

Holocaust Memorial- Did the Shoah make it impossible for Jews to believe in God?
On Tuesday 14th January Rawcliffe and Rawcliffe Brige joinded together for a maths day/morning.The first thing we did was we got in pairs and walked to Rawcliffe Bridge. When we arrived, we dropped off our buddies at the Reception Class and then we all walked down to the hall. We took off our coats and started the morning.The first thing we did was pick a random number from minus one hundred to one hundred [without telling anybody our numbers!] Then we tried to line ourselves up using mathematical vocabulary, without telling our numbers to anybody. If we got caught we would have been out, but we only got 5 minutes! We nearly got the numbers in the correct order but we needed a bit of practice. After we had warmed up, we got ourselves into little groups. The teachers handed out some challenge sheets. We had to work together in groups to calculate, measure and prove we could answer the challenges. It was really difficult but fun getting work with different people!
