Anglo-Saxon Day 16.11.20

 

We spent the day dressed as Anglo-Saxons as part of our history topic. We learnt about Saxon names and people's roles in society, clothing, religion, writing and burial. We planned a traditional Saxon feast and listened to the Saxon story of Beowulf around the fire. 

4D's Anglo Saxon Day

Some of the beautiful work 4F have completed in English, on display around the classroom.

Today in Forest School, Year 4 got to take part in an archaeological dig. We used trowels and paintbrushes to remove the mud from our finds to help us identify them, and tried to decide whether the object could be ancient or modern.

4F Art and history lessons

The children have been learning about Anglo Saxons in history. In art, they created a model house using their knowledge of the building materials and features of the houses that Anglo Saxons lived in. This has helped develop their motor skills when cutting and sticking!

Year 4 2020 

The children have enjoyed their first couple of weeks back. We have been doing lots of PE, handwriting and maths games to get the children familiar with their learning again. We have also been looking at a book called 'Here We Are' by Oliver Jeffers.

The children have been inspired by this book to create a range of work. We have been thinking about some of the positive environmental aspects of the Covid-19 lockdown, and the children have created short information broadcasts about this subject. Please see below.
