Remembrance Day

Children in 3P made poppies in Art and created ‘Blackout Poems’ in Topic to remember all those who have died during wars. We observed the two minute silence and learned lots of information about Remembrance Day.

‘Tie-riffic’ ‘Bow-tiful’ Year 4!

Today we raised money for a worthy cause and at the same time displayed our style and brilliance by wearing Ties for Thailand.  From dazzling displays of tremendous fashion sense to showing our sense of humour with boys daring to wear Jo-Jo bows in their hair.

A great day where once more the children of D’Eyncourt Primary showed just how compassionate they are towards the needs of others.

Well done,  and a big thank you to parents and families  for your donations.

 

Year 4 European Languages Day

Tuesday morning saw our class resplendent in red and white to celebrate our nominated European Language Day country of Poland.

We  investigated the life of Polish people and even learnt how to count to 10 whilst our bellies were full of Polish goodies that we taste tested throughout the morning.

The composer Chopin provided some beautiful music during our brochure making activity.

We would all agree the Polish would say it was a complete ‘powodzenie’.

Year 4’s Sporting Spirit – Achieving Greatness!

Year 4 showed their strength of character yesterday during our annual sport’s day.

During the KS1 events they found entertainment and good sporting character through cheering on our younger competitors in KS1.

When it was time for them to show off their sporting prowess, they did it in the only way Year 4 could – with style and sporting spirit!

 

4K election promises

 

4K have proved to be the future of politics!  An impressive 17 children entered the race to be the class council representative and all presented solid, convincing arguments that could have potentially changed the future of the USA had they competed against Mr Trump!

Well done to you all and whilst there will only be 2 children elected, there will be opportunities for everyone to work together on projects throughout the year.

Year 4 Geography Day!

Year 4 had their Geography day on Monday. Mr Pearce and Mrs Bayliss split the year group into their 2 groups that will be the groups in Year 5.

We studied INDIA for the day! We had lots of experts who have been to India who could give us first hand experience.

We did some research about India learning about the currency, capital city, food, culture and sport.

We looked at Rangoli patterns and tried some Indian food. Mr Pearce designed some top trumps cards so we could rate the food! We had lots of fun. We also played cricket, as we learnt that cricket is a popular sport in India.
