We look forward to including them in our Roman museum!
Year 4 had a great time last week developing their pottery skills further. Using air dry clay, they made Roman pots to add to their growing collection of artefacts for their museum display in December. Well done Year 4!
Year 4 Overnight Camp Adventure 1st and 2nd July: Year 4 had an amazing time at Osprey Camp! They took part in an assault course, enjoyed den building, fire wood collecting, cricket and a farm tour. The children had the opportunity to play games around the camp site, create gods eyes and play in the forest area.
The children were a credit to the school and staff were incredibly impressed. The Year 4 Team hope they enjoyed it as much as they did! The children returned to school on 2nd July and shared a picnic lunch together provided by our Kitchen Team.
Year 4 Make Biscotti: As part of their Geography topic on Italy, Year 4 made chocolate chip Biscotti. Working in small groups they weighed and combined ingredients before creating a dough log. Our wonderful kitchen staff then baked the biscotti biscuits for them. The children evaluated their efforts and were able to taste their biscotti before taking the rest home.
Year 4 Anglo-Saxon Topic: Y4 have really enjoyed their Anglo-Saxon topic and finished off Term 4 by creating or drawing Anglo-Saxon houses for homework.
Here are just a few of some of the amazing pieces we’ve had in. Well done Year 4!
As part of our Year 4 Home Learning, the children have been looking at illustrations by Quentin Blake following a YouTube video of how to draw Willy Wonka. We were very impressed with what the children achieved. Well Done! ⭐️
Term 1: Our Year 4 Roman Topic homework displays
Year 4 Ancient Romans: The Year 4 classes had a very busy Autumn Term learning about different aspects of Ancient Roman life. They created a range of artefacts both in school and at home. During the last week of term, to celebrate their learning they chose some of their artefacts and created museum like labels. Here are some of their amazing achievements! Well done to everyone in classes 4J, 4L and 4O.
Explorer Dome Visit: Year 4 started their Science topic of sound with a visit from Explorer Dome. In the dome they learnt about vibration, sound waves, pitch and hearing through an interactive and hands on show. There was thunder and lightening, pops and pipes and music made. It was an experience not to be forgotten! Thank you to Ben, Matina and James from Explorer Dome
