Year 4 - North America

Year 4 - North America

Year 4 have made a fantastic start to Term 3 and we are all enjoying learning about our new topic of “North America”.  We have been researching the 7 continents and identifying countries in North America. We have been writing letters to school children in Canada and we are excited about hearing back from them!  We have also enjoyed our Teacher of the Week Assemblies and we have been impressed at how much effort the children have put into these! It has been lovely to have the parents/carers into school to join us.

Year 5 Astrodome visit

25/11/19

On Tuesday 19th November Year 5 , who are currently studying Earth & Space in Science and Stargazers in Topic,  had a visit from the Astrodome.  60 excited children were able to have a truly magical experience, and feel that they were being transported through space.

The children were shown different constellations and different planets and had many of their questions answered.   We will now use the visit to further enhance the rest of our lessons this term.

Viking Day

22/11/19

On Tuesday 12th November it was arranged that Living History Workshops would provide a Viking Day experience for Year 4. The first important task for the Year 4 children was to choose between two different designs to have painted on their faces. Afterwards, they were introduced to the carousel of seven activities that they would take part in: -

 

Clay pots

Artefacts

Armoury

Stone grinding

Spinning/weaving

Game - stones and knuckles

Making medicine

 

In the afternoon the first task that the children had to complete was their Viking amulet (necklace) with their names on. Next, the children were introduced to Viking laws and had to make a decision as a group whether they would pass or dismiss the suggestions! Finally, the children embraced the Viking chants and movements and enjoyed competing against each other.

Special Visitors

18/11/19

This term year R have been learning about people who help us. This week we have been really lucky to have had some special visitors. We had some firefighters come to talk to us about what they do and they showed us their fire engine. We all got the chance to go and sit in the fire engine. They showed us lots of different equipment that they use including the hose, the animal rescue kit and their uniform.
