In the last week of Year 4, 4OQ created a website to reflect on their time in the class. They wrote about their favoruite activities and what they had learnt. Even Mr Quinlan had a go, as reflecting is such an important part of learning.
A message from Mr Quinlan
It has been an amazing year! You have all worked so hard and we have learned so much together. I have been so impressed with your independence, and how you have seen problems, or things you are interested in and just started projects to take them further. Keep doing this- it is this independence that will allow you to get what you want out of life, and maybe change the world!
I am very sad that I won’t be your teacher any more, and even sadder that I won’t be at Robin Hood to catch up with you all. I will keep reading and commenting on your class blogs, so please tell me lots about what you are doing and what you are learning!
Way back in the Autumn a boy in our class brought in a map of where different rocks and gems come from. Lots of children brought in their own rocks to match to the map. In the last week of term Mr Quinlan found a collection of different types of rocks he had when he was young, and this inspired the project to take off again!
Here are some videos of the learning that they did…
On the last day of term Year 4 had a chance to showcase their talents! We had everything from singing and playing instruments, to dance and gymnastics!
A while ago three girls from our class noticed that there was a lot of litter outside the classroom. They decided to clear it up and worked hard to put it all in the bin. A few days later they came back to find the place full of litter again!
They decided this was a problem, and to solve it they needed to persuade people to put their litter in the bin. To do this they created a video and a website to show just why you should put some effort into stopping litter.
The boys in 4OQ have been really into the ‘Beast Quest‘ series of books. Here they explain what they are all about and why they love them so much!
All through this year, children from 4OQ have been creating websites using Google Sites. Some of these were linked to work we had done in class, but most were started because groups of children were excited about something and wanted to share it with their friends and the world.
Below you can explore all of the different sites that have been created, from stories to computer games, videos to history and football. Many of 4OQ’s passions and interests are here!
