What we have been up to - Year 4 2018
Spring Term and Easter Assembly
Over this half term, Year 4 have been working hard putting together our assembly. We have looked at the Easter story in RE and how this links to light and dark. We chose to focus on both of these in our play. We know how important the Easter story is and how we can make links in our lives. We have also linked this to our projects to create our own light and dark artistic investigations featuring photography, craft, painting and collage.
Ufton Court Day Visit
We had an amazing day and it was so brilliant seeing the children learning in a different and exciting environment. We had the opportunity to take part in archery, wattling, a banquet and a reenactment of the Battle of Reading. We loved life as an Anglo Saxon, including dressing up in costumes, and eating with only a knife and spoon during the banquet. Each activity enriched the children's knowledge and depth of learning...as well as being really fun!
Gilbert White visit
On Monday, Gilbert White came in to visit year 4. We had a fantastic day finding out about penguins and their adaptations to the Antarctic, Captain Oates and his teams expedition and finally investigating the equipment used to explore Antarctica, including sledges, tents and trying on warm clothes.
