Our wonderful dragon eyes
Thank you so much to everyone who helped in the creation of the Viking homes over the half term holiday. They are all fantastic!
Half term Viking homes homework
Sammy came in today and did a workshop with the children all about mammals. She talked about the mammals we could find around our local area and in Britain. We then went to find the camera she had set up in the schools grounds. Over the coming couple of weeks we will be having a look to see what animals the camera captures.
What a fantastic trip to the Beacon of light. I was so proud of their behaviour and their team work. Well done class!
Our class novel this term is How to train your dragon, written by Cressida Cowell. For our writing, we designed our own dragons and then had to write a descriptive piece about them. Mrs Oakes was so proud of our work, she has displayed it in the classroom.
On Tuesday last week, class 4O walked to the village library. They had a story read to them and then they were allowed to pick a book to keep back in class on loan. They also created their own books in an arts and crafts session.
Happy Chinese New Year! Class 4O have created their own dragons to help scare off Nian.
This terms task has been to research natural disasters. Class 4O have shown great enthusiasm finding out about volcanoes. Working in pairs the children have designed, created and exploded their own volcanoes. Explosion pictures to follow!
Demon Dentist comes to visit!
During English and Science this week we have been investigating teeth and dentists. Year 4 have been using disclosing tablets to check for plaque buildups.
For our English this week, we have been discussing how we might feel if we were visiting the dentist. As part of our writing, we will try to explain how someone is feeling without actually writing the emotion. Can you guess the emotion from the the pictures?
A great start to our Rememberance Week.
Today the children looked at the history of the Spitfire plane and began to colour a template of one, that will later be made into a 3D paper plane.
October half term activities to entertain the children
This is a lovely homemade Roman shield brought in today by Beth.
As part of our topic, The Romans, we will be making chariots. To help decide which type of wheels would be best to use, we did an investigation today.

Great Roman historty work from Lexi
Every Friday someone from Year 4 will be chosen as Star of the week. They will be able to take Fluffy home, take him on adventures over the weekend and write all about it in his journal.
Introducing our class mascot - Fluffy.
It has been an extremely successful few weeks for all members of 4O. I have thoroughly enjoyed my first few weeks back as it's been wonderful to meet my new class and get to know everyone a little better. I am really impressed by how well they have settled into daily routines and the new expectations in Year 4. During this time, the children have learned a lot about goal setting, the importance of teamwork and having resilience as there are many challenges and opportunities for learning ahead!
All children have received a new reading book and journal. It is so important that the children read at least three times a week as it has such a massive impact on their rate of learning.
This term the children will be learning about the Roman Empire and its impact on Britain. Their key task is to make a moving chariot which will be extremely exciting!
Remember P.E. kits on a Thursday and swimming costumes on a Tuesday.
