Moving the lessons forward the children the found another pair to make a group of 4. They chose and performed a shape at the same time facing inwards. They then adjusted the shape so that it contrasted with others in the group. Together the children then developed performed and synchronized a sequence. The social cog for the lessons started with I can help, praise and encourage others. This progressed to I show patience and support to others.

Y4 COOKING IN THE CURRICULUM - AUTUMN 2

COOKING AND NUTRITION. As part of their work with food, pupils should be taught how to cook and apply the principles of nutrition and healthy eating. Instilling a love of cooking in pupils will also open a door to one of the great expressions of human creativity. Learning how to cook is a crucial life skill that enables pupils to feed themselves and others affordably and well, now and in later life. Pupils should be taught to Key stage 1 to use the basic principles of a healthy and varied diet to prepare dishes to understand where food comes from Key stage 2 to understand and apply the principles of a healthy and varied diet to prepare and cook a variety of predominantly savoury dishes using a range of cooking techniques to understand seasonality, and know where and how a variety of ingredients are grown, reared, caught and processed. Throughout Autumn 2, groups of children spent the afternoon preparing and enjoying Pasta Bolognaise.

Y4 NSPCC PANTS - AUTUMN 1 - 11/09/2019

Along with many schools across the country at Stanningley Primary School we use the NSPCC Pantosaurus rule to help to teach children about keeping themselves safe. With the help of the friendly Pantosaurus dinosaur adults both at school and at home can teach children about how to stay safe from abuse. At a level appropriate for their own age, all children learn about how the parts of their bodies which are covered by our underwear are private parts and are not for other people to see or touch and how important it is to talk to someone about anything which upsets or worries you. Today, Class 4 were introduced to the NSPCC singing dinosaur video to introduce the very important PANTS acronym. The children loved singing along with Pantosaurus whilst learning the key PANTS messages. HELP YOUR CHILD TO STAY SAFE BY TALKING PANTS!
