  • The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane

    Published 14/01/22, by Richard Gunson

    This term we have what is probably my favourite book of Year 4 - The Marvellous Journey of Edward Tulane. In English, we are turning chapter 5, where Edward goes on a journey aboard the Queen Mary and is lost overboard, into a plays cript.

    To start the process, we split into groups and acted out the scene. I have to say, we have some incredible actors in Team Gunson this year!

    This week we are going back over some of our Year 4 common exception words that haven't quite made it into our 'Brain Box' yet, as not enough children have spelled them correctly.

    So, this week I would like the children to learn how to spell: opposite, potatoes, through, enough, believe, business, ordinary, possess, quarter and though. Testing we be on Friday.

  • Circuits

    Published 23/11/21, by Richard Gunson

    As part of our topic, we have been starting to make simple circuits. We have discovered that for a bulb to light up, the circuit must be a complete loop, or 'circuit'. It must also contain a power source and have no gaps. We have also gone on to explore switches and will soon be putting our new-found knowledge to the test when we create toys involving an electric circuit.
