Keep checking this page to see what we have been getting up to in class. Also this page is really useful to see what homework you are currently working on.
Rainbow Theatre - Anglo-Saxons
As part of our Anglo-Saxons topic, we had a visit from the Rainbow Theatre. We were very excited and got to take part in the story. We learnt new things about what happened and how people lived in the Anglo-Saxon period.
Invaders and Settlers
This term, we have been investigating into the historical period of the Anglo-Saxons. We are going to be looking at the types of settlements and how the Anglo-Saxons lived.
Egyptian Food Tasting
During this topic, we had a go at food tasting. We were able to identify the different foods that we around during the Egyptian period and give our opinions of what they tasted like. We had a wide range of fruits, bread, drink and some spices to smell.
Year 4 are travelling back in time to a land where Pharaohs ruled. The children are finding out all about the Ancient Egyptians and will be creating their own pop up Egyptian book. They have spent time looking at the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb and writing a newspaper report. During the half term, we shall be having a dress up day so start thinking about those costumes.
In Year 4, we have had lots of fun learning about Charlotte's Web. We have been writing our own persuasive letters to Mr Zuckerman and creating our own finger puppets of different characters from the story!
2015 - 2016
(last year's Year 4 classes)
In Spring 1 we had great fun with the Probots. After getting them to follow simple routes we then programmed them to follow a route based on Ivan's journey to the ice palace.
Thank you to those parents who attended the Handwriting workshops. It was a great opportunity for you to work with your child developing fine motor skills. If you would like further information or ideas on handwriting, then please speak to a member of the year 4 team.
12 lucky year 4 children had the opportunity to attend the Mary Rose museum to solve a range of mathematical challenges. They took on the role of a 'purser' and worked out how much food and rations would be needed for a 5 day trip to sea with 500 crew.
Anglo-Saxon and Viking Workshops
The Rainbow theatre came in to work with us on the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. We got to join in with some acting.
