4D really enjoyed our Anglo Saxon day earlier this term!
4W had an excellent time at the Christmas carol service at the Holy Trinity Church today. It was so special to be together for this.
4E had an excellent day at West Stow Anglo Saxon Village this week. Have a look at some of the things we got up to.
Learning to tell the time in year 4
Computing- planning how to write computer code by acting it out
Maths- Calculating change at the 'shopping centre'
Making electrical circuits
Year 4 used their learning in RE to create a museum of Jewish artefacts. They had to identify the artefact and research it in order to create the label to go next to it. The children really enjoyed this hands-on learning and could even identify some artefacts which they would like to have added to their museum!
4D baking fairtrade gingerbread biscuits- weighing ingredients is great maths practice!
4F learning about the melting point of ice by using the data loggers to measure temperature.
4D made some christmas decorations for our class!
Glockenspiel practice in 4F
4W make models of the water cycle
We have been learning about road safety so today we wore florescent coloured accessories to remind us to be safe and be seen!
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.
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.
