No Pen Day

On No Pen Day Year 4 had a day of learning without pens and tables. Every lesson involved active learning and discussion. We started our day with wake and shake, followed by drama and exploring characters emotions. In Maths we focused on recalling times table facts through star jump maths and playing pirates treasure. The children had to recall facts rapidly and discuss mathematical statements.Our afternoon was focused on developing our vocabulary, communication skills and memory. The children developed these skills through games such as ‘What am I?’  and ‘What did I buy?’ We ended our day developing our flexibility and agility through Yoga.
