Welcome to Class 4!
Please remember: This half term is Forest Schools for Year 4 each Monday. Therefore children will need old, warm clothes (lots of layers) as we will be outside in all weathers.
Our teacher is Mrs Smith. Class 4 is also supported by Mrs Lever most mornings and Miss Oakley on Monday, Thursday and Friday afternoons. Mrs Powell teaches us on Thursday mornings for Maths and R.E.
I am pleased that the children are continuing to show a committed and dedicated attitude towards their learning and set an excellent example to all!
Swimming will continue to take place for Year 4 each Monday but there will be no P.E. this half term due to our involvement in Forest Schools.
The children really enjoyed last term's topic on South America and the Amazon Rainforest and produced quality work which they should be proud of.
The children produced a variety of Literacy, Geography, Science and Art work related to the topic. They had a visit from 'The Bug Lady' and 'Zoo lab' where they daringly held a variety of creatures. Art work produced was of a high standard and related to two artists, Monet's Water lilies and Georgia O'Keeffe's flowers.
This term we are excited about studying the Invaders and Settlers with the main focus being the Romans. We are learning about how they lived, why they invaded Britain and what we have learnt from them. The children have put a lot of effort into a research project around the Romans and have produced some excellent work so far.
In Design & Technology we are designing and making Roman purses. Photos of some of these will be here soon.
During our Science sessions we are learning about Sound, how it travels and which materials can be sound proof.
We are fortunate enough to be involved in Forest Schools this half term where we are continuing with our Roman theme - making Roman spears, jewellery and even making and cooking Roman bread! The children are thoroughly enjoying the experience and even enjoyed eating the bread! Yum!
