Year 4 Ostriches

Please visit our Wellington Media page for our Year 4 Harvest Festival video.

Welcome to Year 4!


Welcome to Ostrich Class! We are a class of Year 4 children. Mr Maslin is our Teacher and our LSAs are Mrs Coles and Mr T. Come have a look at our page for reading updates, activities and to catch up on what we do!

This weeks shoutout:

 

Well done for an amazing week! We learned lots about the UK and how it's surrounding seas and neighbouring countries, about how to use expanded column method and even more about changing states!

Well done to Ayon for getting Star of the Week, his responsibility and maturity are a good example to us all. 

Warming up with our Pyramid Projects, Naomi and Sra have shown off theirs. I am excited to see what will be revealed next week...

 

Have a great weekend,

 

- Mr Maslin

Shoutout of the week

 

Well done Ostrich class for a fantastic week of working through our new story "The Egyptian Cinderella", and for being so enthusiastic with our new topics. Friday was a special day as we all brought our Pyramid projects in (we will be showing them off next week). One that couldn't wait was Leon's pyramid... because it was all edible! A fantastic treat for the class, but twice as impressive because Leon made sure that the every single person in the class was catered for, whether it was for religious, cultural or dietary reasons, Leon found a way to make sure they could join in. This attitude towards others earned him Star of the Week!

 

Well done class, have a fantastic weekend!

 

-Mr Maslin 

Year 4 have been exploring Remembrance Day with silhouette artwork, as well as discussing the significance of the poppy.

Shoutout!

 

Well done to Riley for getting Star of the Week! His efforts to raise the quality of his work have really impressed us, as well as his positive attitude each and every day.

Well done to the whole of Ostrich class, we now have 7 people above the green line in TTRS! Keep going and I'm sure by the end of this half term we will have our first goal of 10!

Have a great weekend and I will see you on Monday to finish off our first best write of the Scarab's Secret.

 

- Mr Maslin

End of our first half term

 

Well done Ostrich class for a brilliant half term. I am so proud of how resilient you have all been, alongside the kindness and support you have shown each other. I have had a lot of fun in the last few weeks, doing everything from making clay cartouches, going to Rowhill in the pouring rain, writing our first best write story and practising the Ukelele! 

Shoutout to Tahlia, our star of the week! Her attitude to new challenges is a good example to the whole class!

 

Have a wonderful half term, have lots of adventures and I already look forward to seeing you on Tuesday.

Homework - Half Term

Shoutout

 

We have had possibly our best week of the year in Ostrich class! Everyone's behaviour has been top notch, and our first best write drafts are coming along nicely. Our shout out this week goes to Mister Ali, who got star of the week for incredible attitude towards his learning and for helping his peers. Our second shout out goes to our resident TT Rock Star, Roux-Juan Jordaan, who amazed many teachers with his lightning fast maths skills (averaging 0.56 seconds per question). Very impressive, you are a good role for our aspiring rock stars!

 

Have a good weekends Ostrich class!

Welcome Letter 2020_21

Monday 8th June update

 

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a nice half term and had lots of adventures. Here is a shoutout to Jake, Lexi M and George who still went on TTRS and did some Soundcheck last week, well done!

I'm also really proud of our scores as a class, so many more of us are regularly getting more than 20 questions right every soundcheck!

Today we went out to the firepit and recreated bonfire night with our Guy Fawkes figures and toasted marshmallows, before drawing some posters for fire safety. What have you all been doing at home?

 

Speak soon and stay safe,

 

Mr Maslin

 

P.S Do your best to keep doing at least a lesson a day o either the BBC Bitesize or Oak National websites!

 

Mr Maslin's Birthday Update!

 

Hello everyone! Hope you are enjoying the sunshine and working hard. I'm planning to spend my birthday eating lots of cake and drinking as much apple juice as possible! 

 

I've just checked TTRS and shoutout to Tyler, George, Kristiyan, Abigail, Lexi M, Isha, Jake and Joseph for practising this last week. Special mention to Isha, Jake and Joseph who have hugely improved their soundcheck scores recently. Keep it up!

 

Have an awesome day and thank you for all the cards I got!

Notice from Miss Howell:

We hope that you are all keeping safe and well - we are missing you all lots!  We have opened up an art competition for all children from Wellington!!! Whether you are attending school or working hard from home; we would love to see lots of entries.  Take a look at the competition entry poster to find out all about it! If you are choosing to enter from home, when your entry is finished please take a photo of it and email it through to adminoffice@wellington.hants.sch.uk.  Don't forget to include your full name and class on your entry!  Good luck and we look forward to seeing all your wonderful creations!
