The heat of the World cup was felt today when Year 4 played Finger Football! The atmosphere was tense and the children enjoyed the tournament. Well done to Demi who became the class champion!
As part of our Numeracy work this week which is all about data collection (and staying with our World Cup football theme)Year 4 collated results based on how long they could keep the ball in the air! It was a challenge but I'm pleased to say everyone managed to score at least one point!
Not only did they develop their physical skills but their data collection work benefitted too!
Today in Year 4 we created our own Finger Footballers. We designed our own national football strips based on the colours of the national flags and then there was the fiddly bit....cutting them out! Great for our fine motor skills!
As part of our World Cup theme and the question, 'Is the World fair?' Year 4 have taken some time to look at the work of 'Street Child' and this year's focus 'I am Somebody'. They have worked very hard to create posters which include the slogan 'I am somebody' and have chosen an area that they believe every child has a right to. What do you think every child has a right to?
This week we are focussing on the question, 'Is it fair?' In Numeracy and Literacy we are looking at the wages earned by different people associated with Football.

It was a tense match with lots of drama but after a well fought battle Year 3 were the worthy winners! Well done Year 3!
Year 4 have spent the morning at County Hall, Durham celebrating the success of one of our class! The competition was to design an illustration for a new Jet and Ben Stranger Danger book which has so far reached 10,000 publications!
Not only did our deserved winner receive a framed certificate presented by the Chief of Durham Police, she also won a book token, sweets and an iPad for the school! A big well done!
