In Year 4 we are studying the Smashing Saxons. The children started with researching the Anglo Saxons for their non -chronological reports in English. We are now moving onto to creating a descriptive advert to promote an Anglo Saxon’s piece of jewellery.
In our topic lessons, we are using our geography skills to study where the Anglo-Saxons originated and where they settled after the Romans left in 410AD. We have learned about the different counties they created and how some of these are the same as places today. In our science topic, we are studying ‘Animals and their Habitats’ and we started with designing ‘Mrs Nerg’ posters and spending an afternoon enjoying the outside, sketching leaves. We will then move on to classifying different living things and using a dichotomous key.
Good Morning! Καλημέρα
The children thoroughly enjoyed making tiropita rolls on European Day to celebrate the culture of Greece. We laughed at practising saying the days of the week and were very puzzled at the Greek word for ‘Welcome’ καλως ΗΡΘΑΤΕ.
After half term, our focus will be getting ready for our Christmas production. We can’t wait to see the children up in lights and ready for their close ups!
The first part of this video shows you how to log into your google classroom. Mrs Haw demonstrates with a Year 6 classroom so ensure you are using the class code given by your own teacher. You won't find the work on the video in every classroom as this was set for Year 6, so once you're logged in you can see what we have set for you in our class. Keep your eyes peeled for our welcome video too!
Please use the above document to support maths home learning.
It suggests a maths activity, along with a link to a Youtube information video, for each area of learning.
We have included the Y3 grid too, as this may be more appropriate for some of our Y4 children.
There is a link to our weekly spellings at the bottom of our class page.
This document has lots of different fun ways to practise spellings. Lots of these we have already tried in classes, and lots are new! Please try to practise spellings, or the Year 4 'Common Exception Words' daily.
