Using an apostrophe to show possession

Using an apostrophe to show possession

Today in English, Year 4 reminded themselves how to use an apostrophe to show singular (belonging to one person) and plural (belonging to more than one person) possession. They practised lots of sentences on their whiteboards and discussed the rules together as talk partners. Finally, everyone looked at plural nouns such as children and men and  how we would use the apostrophe to show possession when using these words.

How the Holy Spirit gave Peter and John courage

Today we listened to the story of Peter and John from Acts Chapter 4: Verses 1-26 and how they had the courage to stand up to the officials and keep their promise to Jesus telling everyone that they could not keep silent about the great things that God has done and they would continue to spread the Good News.

First we prepared questions for the two disciples and took part in an interview role play. Then we thought about times in our own lives where we have had the courage to stand up for something we strongly believed in.

Collective Worship – first week of Advent

Collective Worship – first week of Advent

This week in our Collective Worship Year 4 reflected on Advent and how we can prepare ourselves for the birth of Jesus. We thought about how we can show kindness to those around us and agreed that as our mission we would make Christmas cards for people less fortunate than ourselves to show them they are loved at Christmas.

Tag Rugby

In Year 4 we continue to enjoy learning to play Tag Rugby in PE. We practised how to move on the pitch as well as how to pass the ball whilst running. Next week we’ll be playing our first competitive game and we are really looking forward to it!
