Week 5 (26.11.18-30.11.18)
This week, the children in year 4 are designing and making their bath bombs ready to sell at the Christmas fayre on Wednesday 5th December. The children have chosen their own flavouring, colour, label and name for their bath bomb. We decided to make our own bath bombs as this relates well with our 'potions' project and is a perfect Christmas gift for family and friends! We hope to see you there.

This week the children have been learning about the famous William Shakespeare's story of Romeo and Juliet. They have re-told this as a storyboard, came up with alternative endings, written play scripts for their alternative ending and then rehearsed these to perform!
Next week in maths, we are continuing with our new chapter 'multiplication and division' and so any additional support with helping your child with their times tables will benefit them greatly! The children also have their own DoodleMaths log in username and password.
Week 1 (29.10.18-02.11.18)
This week, the children have been looking at states of matter. In this lesson, they were investigating solids, liquids and gases. We identified and compared household items, how the particles vary between different states of matter and some children have even been able to suggest reversible and irreversible changes!
Here is a link to a website that provides further information on this:
A HUGE well done to all of year 4 for their hard work during this first half term, we are very proud of them all! The children have loved learning about Anglo-Saxons and Vikings.
To celebrate, the children held an exhibition as a chance to reflect on their amazing topic work from this half term. We have received great feedback and the children should be very proud of themselves. Here are some photos to share from the exhibition.
We are looking forward to introducing their next topic to them after half term!
The children have been creating their own Anglo-Saxon weapons today, in preparation for their exhibition on Wednesday. They have used what they have learnt about weapons to design their own using a different materials.

Last week, year 4 had a special Anglo-Saxon visitor come to share their knowledge and artefacts with us. We took part in lots of activities such as carving our names using Runes (the Anglo-Saxon alphabet), sketching items used by the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings, learning about their weapons as well as playing games!
Here are a few photos for you to take a look at.
The Viking Man visit
Welcome to Class 7!
This week in Class 7, we have been researching Saxon shore forts and discussing the reasons why they were built on the South-East coast to defend themselves from seaborne invaders. The children have so far thoroughly enjoyed learning about the Anglo-Saxons and how they protected themselves within the forts.
Next week, we will be looking into more detail at the Saxon's daily lifestyles such as; farming, homes, food, crime and punishment.
