Literacy:- This half term we have brought our Viking learning to Literacy and began by looking at viking gods, We watched and then acted out the story of Freya and the goblins changing the problem in the story. We have also written our own myths in the style of Freya and the goblins.
Numeracy – We have focused on place value and addition and subtraction. Year 4 have really enjoyed using the new maths scheme manipulating objects in the concrete lessons and moving on to the abstract section.
Topic – We have been look at the Vikings and how they lived. We enjoyed a day where a Viking man came into class and taught us all about the Vikings and how they lived. We also made viking pots, a viking game and role played that we were in battle. We also really enjoyed drawing some of the artefacts he brought in such as a viking helmet and a sword. We have also made long boat paintings using water colours and collage materials and created a viking collage as a class. We have really enjoyed learning about the Vikings.
In science we have been learning about sound. We have completed experiments investigating how vibrations create sound and how distance effects sound.
In RE we have looked at authority and how the stories of Jesus shows Jesus’ authority. We really enjoyed acting out the stories in groups. Watch out Hollywood, Year 4 are on there way!
We have really enjoyed beginning our French sessions, so far we have learnt the days of the week, colours and the numbers.
For our PE sessions this year we have started our swimming sessions, We really enjoy swimming and Miss Thompson and Miss Naylor are very proud of the confidence the children show whilst swimming.
We are proud of how much the children have settled in to year 4 and how they have began to focus.
