Fund-raising
Liam, Pearl, Lydia, Oscar, Lyra, Dillon and Lucy made cakes and sold at playtime. They made £64.30 for WWF.

Tennis in Harbury
Pearl, Alexia, Liam, Mikey, Lyra, Jack had the opportunity to represent Y4 at a tennis competition hosted by Harbury tennis club. We came third!

Visiting Harbury Library
We had another lovely morning at the library this week. First we had a fact finding treasure hunt then we got to play the Ancient Egyptian game of Senet.

Year 4’s trip to the Ashmolean 
After days of patiently waiting, class 3 and 4 went to Oxford’s Ashmolean museum. Class 3 and 4 were separated and began their journey in the museum. Class 4 were led by the tour guide to the Ancient Egypt gallery where they learnt about a shrine made for a pharaoh to give him life and power.

Once lunch had ended, class 4 had some free time to sketch in the Roman and Greek galleries. Both classes enjoyed the trip very much and desperately want to go back – maybe one day they can come back with their parents as they didn’t see everything the museum holds!

Pi Day
It was such a treat to meet up with our Y2 learning partners and share an activity. To celebrate the curiousness of Pi we made bead bracelets with 3 (red) beads, 1 (green) bead, 4(blue) etc.

As part of our science topic on plants, we dissected a lily flower and found the stamens, stigma, style and ovary.

After reflecting on the value of courage ,we created artwork to show the courage Jesus showed on Good Friday.

Design and Technology
The children used their reading skills to follow a recipe accurately to make trench stew; a famous World War Two meal. They measured and chopped all of the ingredients safely and carefully. They even got to eat the final product!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Diary Entry
The children have been analysing the features of Anne Frank’s diary entries in preparation to write their own one, in a similar style. They have had to categorise specific vocabulary in order to understand which tense, person and suffixes to use correctly.

 

 

 

 

Drama
The children enjoyed acting out various scenes from Romeo and Juliet, which gave them a concrete understanding of Shakespearian language and the characters interactions. From this, they managed to produce a written outcome, using direct speech to punctuate a conversation between two characters.
