We are a Year 3 and 4 Class.
Miss O'Donnell is our Teacher.
Mrs Turner is our Teaching Assistant.
Our topic this term is Robots! We have been reading The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. Ted Hughes is primarily a poet and we have noted the poetic elements in his novel writing, with a view to incorporating similar into our own writing. We’ve had some tremendous results and every day we develop our love for language.
In Design and Technology, Ms Palmer taught us all about pneumatics. We used this technology to create robots with moving parts. Many of the children in Tiger class also constructed robots at home. This has resulted in our classroom being positively taken over by rampaging robots!
We have been exploring our Forest School area and learning lots about teamwork. The children have shared insightful ideas and creative plans for den building, nature inspired story-telling and tree-climbing. They have also enjoyed whittling sticks, pond-dipping, lighting fires, eating marshmallows and drinking hot chocolate!
At the moment we are preparing for our upcoming musical - Dragon!
The Year 4s are busy learning lines and putting their hearts and souls into acting performances that are sure to enrapture Gamlingay audiences. The script lends itself to some epic comedy and rehearsals have revealed comics galore among our Year 4 children!
Year 3s have been writing play scripts of their own with Mrs Yearsley and they will also be making an ominous appearance as swampbeasts in the upcoming Dragon!
If children would like to practise the songs for their performance the songs have been uploaded here.
Ms Palmer organised Gamlingay First School’s contribution to the national Make a Difference Day. Throughout the school, the children considered how they could make a difference within the community and their individual lives. At school the children in Tiger Class sorted out and tidied up the lost property which was a great help.
Some of the Tigers also dazzled us with their various skills and abilities in the Talent Show - we have a selection of budding poets, singers and dancers in the making!
