In reading, we have been looking at poems. We have been thinking about how we can perform poems using intonation, tone, volume and action. In the video, the children, in groups, performed a stanza of the poem, The Sorting Hat Song, from Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. They worked together to choose actions, intonation, tone and volume based on the language in their stanza and memorised the words independently. Well done Year 4 for performing a fantastic poem!
Last half term, Year 4 had loads of fun making catapults! We had to be extremely sensible using a saw to cut the wood. We made out catapults using string, elastic bands, wood, and egg cup and a little bit of glue. After we had made our catapults, we had a catapult competition! The winning team won some yummy chocolate!
We had a fantastic time visiting Leeds Central Library for the History of Magic exhibition! We were able to explore the different lessons Harry and his friends learned in and we even got to go to 'staff only' areas to see some very special books! It was a wonderful day and we had an amazing time.
We love our ukulele lessons on a Wednesday afternoon! At the minute, we are being all 'Christmassy' and are learning 'Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer!'
On Thursday 16th November, Year 4 had an extremely exciting visit from a Roman Soldier! We found out about what you had to do to become a Roman soldier and we even took part in a battle. Making formations with the shields was especially fun. Later in the day, we found out about civilian life and looked at Roman baths. We even found out how Romans went to the toilet! Eurgh! It was a fantastic and we learned lots!
Year 4 created some amazing artwork based on 'The Island' by Armin Greder. They also linked their work to refugees. Mrs Blackwood helped Year 4 to explore different techniques that could be used with charcoal and showed them how to use art to express emotions.
Boo! We all dressed up in super spooky outfits for our Spooky Day! Even Miss Boyd was a bit scared when she saw all of our amazing costumes!
We loved making Roman helmets as part of our hook! We even pretended we were ready for battle! Have a look at the pictures to see our wonderful helmet creations.
