ROAL DAHL DAY


On 13th September is Roald Dahl Day, a holiday dedicated to one of the world's greatest storytellers. We will celebrate it in class, but before doing so I would like you to investigate a little bit about him.

Look for some information about him and try to answer these questions:
  • Where was he born?
  • Why do we celebrate his day on 13th September?
  • What is his connection with Norway?
  • Did he like school? 
  • Was he a good student?
  • Where did he study?
  • Apart from writing, what did he do? (job)
  • Did he marry?
  • How many children did he have?
  • Can you name some of his books?

  • Did you already know any of them?
  • Have you ever watched any of his films?

INTRODUCING ME




 I'm good at wasting time
I think lyrics need to rhyme
And you're not asking
But I'm trying to grow a mustache 



I eat cheese, but only on pizza, please
And sometimes on a homemade quesadilla
Otherwise it smells like feet to me
And I, I really like it when the moon looks like a toenail
And I love you when you say my name 



If you wanna know
Here it goes
Gonna tell you this
The part of me that'll show if you're close
Gonna let you see everything
But remember that you asked for it
I'll try to do my best to impress
But it's easier to let you take a guess at the rest
But you wanna hear what lives in my brain
My heart, will you ask for it, for your perusing
At times confusing, slightly amusing
Introducing me 



Doo doo, doo doo doo doo to
Doo doo, doo doo doo doo to
La la la la
La la la la la la la la, da 


I never trust a dog to watch my food
And I like to use to the word "dude"
As a noun, or an adverb, or an adjective
And I've never really been into cars
I like really cool guitars and superheroes
And checks with lots of zeros on them
I love the sound of violins
And making someone smile 


If you wanna know
Here it goes
Gonna tell you this
The part of me that'll show if you're close
Gonna let you see everything
But remember that you asked for it
I'll try to do my best to impress
But it's easier to let you take a guess at the rest
But you wanna hear what lives in my brain
My heart, will you ask for it, for your perusing
At times confusing, possibly amusing
Introducing me 


Well, you probably know more than you ever wanted to
So be careful when you ask next time 


So if you wanna know
Here it goes
Gonna tell you this
The part of me that'll show if you're close
Gonna let you see everything
But remember that you asked for it
I'll try to do my best to impress
But it's easier to let you take a guess at the rest
But you wanna hear what lives in my brain
My heart, will you ask for it, for your perusing
At times confusing, hopefully amusing
Introducing me 


Doo doo, doo doo doo doo to
Doo doo, doo doo doo doo to
Doo doo doo doo


Introducing me.

BLOG GUIDELINES

Guidelines for Parents and Carers


Hello Parents and Carers,


Below are the reasons why we blog and the expectations we have. Please spend a little time reading them.


This blog is a way for us, teacher and students, to share our ideas and our learning with friends and family. Sharing our learning means that it is very important that we understand how to use the blog and the internet in a secure way.

This ties in with our Curriculum objectives and ICT Key Skills that the children are expected to learn and apply.


The following guidelines have been established to ensure the safety of our pupils when blogging. The guidelines are also reminders of how to use the blog to improve writing and keyboarding skills.


- Student work will only be identified by first names.
- All comments should have first names only.
- There will be no photos of the students.
- Parents who leave comments are asked not to use last names either. (Please post comments as “Juan’s Mum” or “Daniel's Dad”, etc.)
- All comments submitted have to be approved by the teacher before they are included on the blog. Inappropriate comments will not be approved.
- Proof-read your comments carefully. Pupils should have a family member check for spelling mistakes before submitting a comment. This is especially important with younger children, who can practise their phonetic awareness (spelling strategies) through adult support when writing.
- As a general rule, I only have access to post things on the blog. Eventually, the children will be encouraged to write blog entries, they will go through edits and revisions before we post them.
- Do not leave comments as a means of communicating with friends in the style of a ‘chatroom’. Please post positively and always remember that the blog is an extension of our school, that the rest of the world is able to see.


Thank you for reading the blogging guidelines for our Year 4 Class Blog.
