Last Friday we remembered all the men and women who gave their lives up for us during World War 1 and World War 2. We came dressed up in uniforms from World War 1 and wrote our own poems to remember those who gave their lives for our freedom. The pictures below reflect our poems and the day.

As part of our Victorian topic, we have been looking at William Morris in our art lessons.

In our first 3 weeks in Year 4, we have been writing and performing poetry. Otter class have written a wonderful poem about an otter which they performed in assembly last Thursday. Enjoy the video of the children rehearsing their poem.

Our trip to Cold Harbour mill

In English we have been learning all about Fairy tales. Now we have been writing our own story maps for a fairy tale with a twist. Please look at our work in the pictures below.

Fairy tales with a twist story maps

On Wednesday we launched our Roman topic with a day filled with fun and activities. We did three activities, shield, breastplate and helmet making and followed this up in the afternoon learning how to form a turtle, orb and other defensive formations that were used by the Roman army in battle. Altogether it was a fantastic day. Please see some pictures from the day below.

On Friday 24th March 2017 Year 4 visited the Roman fortress in Caerleon, South Wales. It was a memorable trip. The children were able to see a real amphitheater, and Roman barracks and communal baths, try on real armor and learn how Roman children would have been taught. In addition they were able to see a real Roman skeleton encased in a stone coffin and handle various Roman artifacts. All the children thoroughly enjoyed the day.

Today we learned all about algorithms and programming. Some of us were lucky enough to even build a Lego model and programme it to follow commands. See some of our videos below (sorry about the lack of sound).
