Summer term 2015
This term we will be studying The Normans, learning about the Battle of Hastings and the Bayeux Tapestry. In Science we will be looking at 'Living Things', thinking of ways of classifying creatures and hunting for mini beasts. Weather permitting, we start going to Portland field for our PE lessons on a Wednesday afternoon. Our focus text is 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes. Where has he come from? Nobody knows, but year 4 have some ideas that they will share soon.
We went on a Nature Hunt to Kew Woods and found lots of interesting bugs and plants. We managed to get a close look at some of the bugs, but returned them back to where we found them.
Using the plans sent home, or our own ideas, we built a model Norman castle.
World Book Day 2015
This year on World Book Day, Year 4 were invited to spend the morning at Waterstone's book store. The children (and staff) dressed up as their favourite book characters. We spent the morning learning how to be illustrators, orally telling stories and completing a treasure hunt around the book store, using books as clues. Great fun was had by all!
What makes Liverpool a great city to live in?
We had a great day out in Liverpool spying all the buildings that we had researched and discussed in class. The photographs below are just a taster of the great day we had riding the train, open top bus and ferry.
