Good morning and welcome to the last week of home learning, we can't wait to see you all back in school next week! Below is the timetable for this week (w.c.1st March) for year 4. The live lessons with the teachers this week will be on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. All the files and assignments for the work are on Microsoft Teams. 

Thank you for all your support and help over the past few weeks, the children have been so resilient and an absolute credit to yourselves and the school.

Dear parents and carers,


It is lovely to have the children back in school after the half term break.

P.E. will be on a Wednesday and Thursday this half term and children should have their full PE kits in school including outside warm clothing.

Thank you,

No spellings or homework is set, however it would always be a great idea to play on Times Table Rockstarssmiley

What a brilliant erupting volcano Miss A!

Roman music visit from Red House On Tuesday October 13th

Year 4 expanded on our learning about the Romans with a visit from The Red House.  Mr Carr brought a range of Roman artefacts with him for us to investigate.   Call My Bluff was an entertaining game where we read out 4 different descriptions of a Roman object,  and had to guess which was the correct definition.  Miss Jackson and Mrs Sutton were really impressed by the facts and information that we were able to recall from our learning this term.   Freya S showed excellent risk-taking, leading a Roman music band and creating a unique rhythm on the Scabellum (a Roman foot castanet).  Eloise accompanied her on the Sistrum, an oval shaker, and Mr Carr stood at the other end of the hall to play the Aulos, a double flute that sounded like bag-pipes.     Mr Carr had prepared wax tablets for us to experience how Roman school children would have written.  The vast majority of Year 4 enjoyed carving words and pictures onto a wax tablet, but a few said that they found this activity quite challenging.  A minority of the class loved it so much that they wish we did all of our learning on wax!  It’s definitely a bit messy though.    Written collaboratively by Year 4

The children had great fun learning the French words for parts of the body using puppets to help them.

Dear parents, please see below the newsletter for this term, together with the curriculum map, homework menu and also the Romans knowledge organiser.
