Year 4 Blog

Welcome back to Term 2 and we’ve started it with a big focus on KINDNESS. Let’s see how many year 4 children can gain an ‘I am kind’ sticker from Ms Porter and Miss Robbins. We’re really proud of those children who have already received one!

At the end of last term Year 4 children turned into journalists and went back in time to the Battle of Hastings. They worked extremely hard and we are very proud of their final results. We had a clear focus for the children to ensure they wrote formally and included factually correct information. They amazed us because they were able to remember key facts of the Battle of Hastings without guidance. Most children were fascinated with the way Harold Godwinson took an arrow to the eye, allowing William the Conqueror to be crowned King on Christmas day in 1066.

Year 4 have also shown their creative side with Mr Jeanes and have been focusing on their own Viking character. The children worked really hard to ensure that their Viking people were historically accurate and even were keen to include finer details.

 

Our next creative venture is in Design and Technology where the children will be cross stitching their initials using Viking Runes.

Can’t wait for a great term 2. Don’t forget that ‘in a world where you can be anything, be kind.’
