Sports Festival!

Year 4 competed in a sports festival at Laureate Academy. We had five teams that competed in five different events - tennis, netball, football, boccia and athletics. Everyone did a fantastic job and we were thrilled to come second out of eight schools! Well done Year 4!!
Sports for Kids came to visit us and ran a session for most of the classes in the school. Year 4 were split into two groups where they were led in a number of throwing, catching and basketball activities.

Art Day at Boxmoor!

Before our October half term break Miss Gray organised an art day for everyone. Before lunch we teamed up with the Year 3 class and rotated through four different activities. For each activity we had to complete some artwork that will be used, together with the artwork from each of the classes, to create displays around the school. In the afternoon we did even more art in our classroom. We created poppies for Remembrance Day which are going to be put onto a whole school display.

Boxmoor Daily Mile

We have started doing a daily mile this week. We have really enjoyed it so far!

We spend some time int he prayer space that Ms. Turner set up in the hall. At each station we had to complete an activity that allowed us to think about god, prayer, our own lives and the lives of others.

Year 4 Class Assembly

Here are some pictures from our class assembly. We really enjoyed sharing our learning with you and we hope that you enjoyed it as well!
We had a fantastic time on our trip to Bhaktivedanta. We learned a lot about the Hindu religion and really enjoyed visiting their temple, seeing their memorial garden to George Harrison and feeding the cows. We also had a really tasty lunch that they had very kindly made for us. Everyone had a great day!

Healthy Sandwiches

 

In Design and Technology we have been learning about healthy eating and varying our diet. We designed some healthy sandwiches that would be good to bring for a school packed lunch. We had a great time preparing everything that we needed to make our sandwiches, making our sandwiches, and (most importantly) tasting our sandwiches.

 

Some of them were delicious and some weren't as nice but we were able to discuss how we could improve them the next time we make healthy sandwiches.

Pound Exercise Session!

 

A few weeks ago we were lucky enough to take part in a Pound exercise session. In the session we used drum sticks to exercise along to some upbeat music. We had a great time!

Move and Learn

 

We have started having Move and Learn sessions every Thursday afternoon which is provided by Premier League Primary Stars. Each Thursday we have a session outside where we learn and experiment with different ways to move our bodies. Following that we have a session inside where we learn about how our body works and how to keep it healthy.

 

 

World Book Day

 

We had a fantastic time during World Book Day. We all dressed up as characters from a book we enjoy reading and looked amazing! We had an assembly in the morning where we played book based games led by our Reading Ambassadors from Year 5 and Year 6 and then had a outfit parade where we were able to see all of the children from other year groups. After the assembly, we split up into our house groups and did shared reading with other members of our house. Later in the day, we completed a book based scavenger hunt again led by our Reading Ambassadors from Year 5 and Year 6.
