Anti-Bullying Assembly

Year 4 presented their anti-bullying assembly on the theme of 'Change Starts With Us'. They explained that being unique and different from everyone else is not a reason for us to be bullied or ridiculed. Here in St Robert Bellarmine we want to embrace difference, celebrate diversity and accept everyone for who they are. We want to make the right choices and choose to show respect to everyone we meet.

 Change starts with us.

 

They also presented two videos that they had created earlier in the week. Follow the link below to our videos page if you would like to watch them.

Odd Socks Day

This year, lots of schools, like us, took part in odd socks day to promote Anti-bullying Week. The idea was for each of us to be able to express ourselves freely; to appreciate that we all unique individuals and to accept we are all different yet we are all equal.

Remembrance Day

At 11 o'clock today we held a two minute silence in honour of those who have served and defended our country and the values of freedom and justice ,which we hold so dear. 

Anti-Bullying

As part of our topic on anti-bullying Altru Drama came to school and presented a play on how we can deal with bullying. It was great fun and we learnt so much.

Maths

Partitioning Numbers

We explored the partitioning of 4-digit numbers in different ways using a place value chart and place value counters. We learnt that through exchanging you can partition one number in many different ways.

P.E.

Football

A team of year 4 boys recently represented the school at a football tournament held at Goals. The lads had a great time and did themselves and the school proud. Well done.

History

Anglo-Saxons

Year 4 recently visited the Anglo-Saxon settlement of Mere Tun. Here they experienced life in Anglo-Saxon times. During the visit they went foraging in the woods, weaved a pig pen from willow, used reeds to thatch a roof and learnt to defend the village.

Maths

Place Value

We created place value museums using our maths equipment. We were challenged to represent a 4-digit number in different ways using any of the equipment we had in class.

P.E.

FootGolf

Last week a team of 6 children represented Year 4 at a footgolf tournament at Aintree. The team did us proud and had a great time. Well done all!

Science

What Happens to the Food We Eat?

We started our science topic by thinking about the journey food takes through our bodies. We then attempted to put our initial thoughts on an outline of the body. 

Prior Learning

British Values - Democracy

School Council Elections

 

Well done to everyone who took part in the school council elections and put themselves forward to be a school councilor. The standard was very high this year and it was a very difficult job for the children to decide who to vote for. After listening to each candidates' manifesto, all of the class went to the polling station to cast their votes. It was a very close run thing. Congratulations to our two new year 4 councilors!
