Aspiring and achieving together

Year 4/5

Year 4/5 have loved learning about the Battle of Bosworth in History. We had a fantastic afternoon re-enacting it as a class, and now all pupils are experts!

We've been learning about 'The War of the Roses' in History and how the Tudor Rose came to be. Today we had an arty afternoon making Tudor Rose collages out of different materials. Here are some fantastic examples.

We are really enjoying reading Shakespeare's 'Macbeth' in our English lessons. Today we acted out a key scene in groups and wrote letters to Lady Macbeth. 'ALL HAIL MACBETH... KING OF SCOTLAND!'

Happy New Year!! Firstly, thank you all so much for all of the wonderful Christmas presents I received at the end of term, it was so thoughtful of you. Year 4/5 have had a fantastic start to the term already. In Science we have started our topic on sound. We have been talking about how quickly sound can travel through solids, liquids and gases. To investigate this, we role played the different forms as a class and practised being molecules vibrating when a sound happens.

Merry Christmas from Miss Hustler and Year 4/5!

Year 4/5 have had a fantastic and very productive first term. I am incredibly proud of how much progress they have made! Wishing you all a very merry Christmas! See you on Tuesday 8th January 2019!

We had an amazing School Christmas Day! We made Christmas hats, pop up Christmas cards, finished our Christmas tree decorations, had a delicious Christmas meal and even got to watch a special staff pantomime of Jack and the Beanstalk!! Only 1 and a half days to go!

This morning we sung at the Freeland House Christmas service. The residents really enjoyed listening to the songs and said that the children brightened up their day!

This week we finished creating our Roman shields and practised marching with them in unison. The pupils have loved studying the Romans this term and acting as Roman soldiers with their shields was a great way to end the topic.

We had a fantastic morning out at The Oxford Playhouse watching 'Dick Whittington and His Cat' with year 5/6. The performance was brilliant and all Freeland pupils behaved impeccably. A huge thank you to The Freeland School Society who made this trip possible!

Make sure to check the 'Woodlands 2018' section on the 'Class News' tab to keep up with how our year 5s are doing on the Woodlands trip! 

Well done to the fantastic year 4/5 children who took part in The Big Christmas Sing at Oxford Town Hall this week. They sung and performed brilliantly and made everyone involved very proud!

Our trip to St Mary's Church - written by Alex

On Thursday 15th November 2018 class 4/5 went to St Mary’s Church in Freeland.  We walked down in pairs because we wanted to learn more about prayer.

Firstly, we sat down on the pews where Reverend David was waiting for us (I was sitting next to Josh).  Silently, we listened to Rev David speak about how Christians prayed.   Before very long he had moved on to talking about hassocks – cushions that help Christians pray.  They help you pray by you kneeling on them.

Secondly, Rev David showed us some other things around the church for example the stations of the cross (paintings that tell the story of Jesus being crucified) which are labelled with Roman numerals up to 14.  There are other things like a candle holder and stain glass windows that showed stories in the bible.

Thirdly, we went to the font (the place where people are baptised) to talk about baptism.  The font is always located by the door.  Once Rev David said that someone had brought water from the river Jordan where Jesus was baptised.

On the roof, Rev David said that if he chased bats out of the church he would get sent to prison however if he sent out a homeless person he wouldn’t go to jail, which is outrageous.  In the walls, there is a room called the parvis which is actually very rare in a church it has lots of stuff that the church isn’t using.

In summary, I enjoyed my visit to the church because Rev David taught me a lot I didn’t know.

In Science we are focusing on dental hygiene and tooth decay. We have looked at the similarities between tooth enamel and eggshell so today we have started our EGGsperiment. Every day this week, we are going to monitor how our hard boiled eggs are affected by different liquids. At the end of the week we will see if our predictions match our conclusions.

Bhangra Dance Workshop

Today, we have been celebrating Divali through Bhangra dance workshops. Selina taught us some basic Bhangra moves which we put into a sequence, before creating our own moves to add to our dance sequence. The pupils really enjoyed the dancing and loved seeing Miss Hustler and Mrs Lench get involved too!! Here is a fantastic example of half the class performing to their peers.

On Friday, the school was lucky enough to have an assembly from Mr Tancock who taught us all about the work he does as a first response officer. We then had fantastic workshops, in small groups, where we learnt about saving lives and CPR.

Reverend Sue joined Year 4/5 for their RE lesson this week.  All term we have been learning about the importance of prayer for Christians and other faiths.  We have had some very interesting discussion and the children were eager to ask Reverend Sue some questions.

During the session Reverend Sue talked about how Christians pray and what they can use to help them.  The children were encouraged to listen to some music and reflect on it, creating artwork.

Year 4/5 have had a lovely last day of term. They particularly loved the visit from Bed Edeh, the GB athlete, who inspired the pupils with his story of how he got into rugby. We had a brilliant workshop with Ben, who showed the pupils how to hold, throw and run with a rugby ball. Have a fantastic half term everyone - see you on Tuesday 30th October!

We have had a fantastic day out at the Corinium Museum in Cirencester. We built on our knowledge of The Romans and got to see, touch and even hold lots of amazing Roman artifacts. We dressed up as Romans, learnt to spell our names in Latin, admired beautiful mosaics and took part in an investigation where we used evidence to decide what type of Roman we were. All year 4/5 pupils were on their best behaviour and represented Freeland School wonderfully!

After learning about Roman shields and designing their own a few weeks ago, today in year 4/5 we finally began making them! We used paper mache to make the centre piece of the shield, and are looking forward to painting them in the next few art lessons.

We had a fantastic first week back to school after the Summer holidays. We began learning about the Romans, and in English we have focused on the story of 'Romulus and Remus'. All the pupils enjoyed learning the story, and then acting it out in groups in front of the class. All pupils did a great job and managed to give constructive feedback to other groups.

Welcome to Year 4/5 with Miss Hustler!
