Reflection of my Term

Overview

Last term my favorite topic was the Vikings because I think the Vikings were really interesting and I really enjoyed the topic.

Did you know the Vikings were actually called the pirates? Did you also know that the Vikings didn’t have horns on their helmets? My favorite piece of work is my art work because I really worked hard in my colour wheel.

I think I have settled in really well in year 4 and I am learning lots.

Self Evaluation

My Assertive Mentoring target is to maintain focus to allow me to extended my writing so I think I keep forgetting to do it.

I think I have settled into year 4 very well because I know all of the class rooms, and I already have an independent learning license.

My ‘AM’ target over the spring term is to try not to get distracted by my friends when I’m working because I can sometimes get distracted. I am going to work really hard to manage my distractions to get my work done!

Reflection on my Term

Overview

This report is all about my first term in Year 4 at HPS.

Last term my favorite topic was the Vikings because I really enjoyed being a Viking in our assembly. One fact I didn’t know was that the Vikings didn’t have horns on their helmets. This was made up! I also learnt that the the word ‘Viking’ means ‘pirate’.

One piece of work I am really proud of is my art work from the Autumn term, I really enjoyed the work we did when we did our colour wheels and mixed paint together. I think I have settled very well in year 4.

Self-evaluation

My Assertive Mentoring target is to get more recorded work in the time given and I also need to remember to bring the correct PE kit. I think on reflection that I have brought my PE kit more but I need to get more work done in the time given. still

I think I have settled into year 4 great because I know where everything is and I like where the teachers have put everything.

 

River Report

 

Rivers

How a river is formed?

A river is formed when rain and snow fall slowly down onto a mountain, because of gravity. Another source of rivers are naturally forming springs. A spring is water that comes from out of the ground. Glaciers also form rivers when they melt. Water interestingly always flows down because of gravity. When a river flows peacefully down a mountain it may hit rocks. Snow, rain, glaciers and springs. These are all possible sources.

Oceans and Seas

Oceans amazingly cover 70% of the world’s surface. The water in the ocean is very salty and unsafe to drink. There are 5 oceans on the planet; the Arctic, pacific, Indian, Atlantic and the Antarctic. Out of all of the five oceans, the Pacific is the biggest covering 30% of the surface of the Earth. A sea is interestingly part of an ocean.

Water Facts

Rivers are actually a strip of water. A river starts at a source and ends at the mouth.

The dead sea isn’t even a sea although it does have salt in the water. In fact, it is so salty no fish can survive. Also you can’t sink.

The River Nile is the longest river and it covers 7 countries! One of them is Egypt.

Actually a lake is water surrounded by land. Lakes will dry out if the water source stops.

 

Descriptive setting

Wind in the Willows

I has been digging and digging for 2 days already. I kept on digging and digging but it seemed like the was no end, so kept on digging until something I saw something yellow, shiny… it was the sun but it was a little bit of the sun so I quickly dug so I could get out of this mud. After few minutes of digging, I fell again into the mud so I dug again and again after a hour I found a huge pile of mud so I went into the mud and dug.

Finally I came out of the mud and I started running since , I was very scared I ran and ran until I got lost so I went forward then I stopped because I saw a crystal, blue  river. It was amazing. Far away I spotted a boat I ran to it and got it so I can drive it around the blue crystal river.

Far away I can see a glistening orange , vanilla house I wanted to see what it is but I was too frightened to see what it was so I went a little bit backwards after one step back there was a loud boom it wasn’t next to me but it was somewhere close by.

I quickly went into the orange vanilla house I was out of control. There was no one home. One hour later, the owner came she didn’t spot me because I hid in a closet that was not used. I tried escaping…

 

Descriptive setting

Wind in the Willows Description (opening paragraph)

I was digging through my house and  suddenly  felt a nice and warm bit of heat as I went outside into the open. I felt the sun shining above me and the dazzling clear blue beautiful river flowing .The flowers were blowing in the breeze of the wind with the sun setting over the clear blue dazzling river. The glazing sun was shining in my brown button eyes. I saw a dazzling blue  and muddy river in the woods…

reflection of my term

Overview

This report is all about my first term in Year 4 at HPS.

Last term my favourite topic was the Vikings because at first I didn’t know a lot about the Vikings but now I do and I got to be a Viking in our assembly. This was so much fun!!!

Did you know Vikings didn’t wear helmets with horns in them? This was all just a made up myth. My second fact is that the word ‘Viking’ means ‘pirate’.

I have tried really hard in my learning in Year 4. The piece of work I am most proud of is my colour wheel I did in art because I think I mixed the colours well and painted it carefully. I think I have settled very well into year 4.

 Self-evaluation

My Assertive Mentoring target is to check my spellings before I hand my work in. I think I haven’t achieved my AM target because I keep forgetting to do it. I have been practicing how to use a dictionary so i can check the spelling of tricky or unfamiliar words. I think I have settled well into year 4 because I like the challenging work even if I can’t do it.

My spring term Assertive mentoring target is not forgetting to check my spellings before I hand my work in. I really want to make sure I achieve this target, this year!
