Year 4 - Poetry Day

Term 3 and 4

Down by the river - Ancient Egypt

This term we are taking a trip down the River Nile, we will be looking at the Ancient Egyptian way of life. Closely investigating artefacts from this era thinking about how and when they would be used. We will be researching the importance of the River Nile to the Ancient Egyptians and the many uses it had for them.

 

Term 1 and 2

Under Attack- Invaders, Traders & Settlers

We will look at artefacts from this era to help us immerse ourselves into Anglo-Saxon Britain. We get a feel for the lives, ideas and priorities of the rich and poor. How did they shape and influence Britain?

We have had a fantastic term learning all about the Vikings and their way of life. We began with a fabulous start of a mysterious Viking, Eric the Silver, invading the school and teaching us the ways of the Viking. We ended our term by dressing up and lived a day in the life of a Viking. We prepared and cooked soup which we cooked on a traditional Viking fire. Viking long ships were the way that Vikings travelled from Scandinavia to England to invade, we even made our own long ships!

  

 

 

Paul Sturgess wowed year 4 today.  He taught us how to use a growth mindset.

At 7ft 7 , he is an expert on growth!

Don’t forget, Home Learning is given out on a Thursday and is due in on a Tuesday. It is an expectation that all children complete the tasks set within this time. If children wish to complete it in school, they can attend Home Learning Club on Friday lunchtime. This frees up the weekend!
