Anti Bullying Week: Random Act of Kindness

This week is ‘Anti-Bullying Week’ and the Sharks and Stingrays have been set a very special task! We are turning bullying on its head and focusing on kindness and respect. Their mission is to try and complete as many ‘Random Acts of Kindness’ as they can by the end of the week.

Order! Order!

For our Term 2 hook, Year 4 engaged in a parliamentary-style debate to immerse us into the world of debate, controversy and discussion (which is our genre for Writing this term).

We learnt the importance of respect and tolerance of differing views, as well as how to compose a constructive argument.

Year 4 discussed some of the following contemporary issues:

  • Should unhealthy snacks be allowed in schools?
  • Should school uniform be banned?
  • Should Home Learning be optional?

It was a joy to see some of the truly constructive comments that the children put forward


Well done Year 4!

Music Enrichment Day

Year 4 had their first Music Enrichment Day on Wednesday; the skills of listening, composing and – perhaps most importantly – appreciating music were enjoyed throughout the day. We learnt about the significance of silence in music and how pauses can determine the tone and overall pace of a song.

A particular highlight was when Year 4 composed their own pieces using notation grids! What a great day enjoyed by all!
