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.





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.

We have been learning about the artist Laurence Stephen Lowry.

We looked at a range of his paintings and described his style, and then everyone had the chance to recreate his wartime painting; entitled ‘After the Blitz’.
First we used watered down grey and black paint to create the sky and background buildings.
Next we used a mixture of coloured papers and pastels to create the main structures.
Finally we used drawing pencils to add our ‘matchstick figures’

What a wonderful job Year 4!.

We made cheese scones, here is our recipe

Learning about Romans
Congratulations to the whole of Year 4 who performed their class assembly with great efficiency. We learnt so much and managed to have a lot of fun researching and making our costumes and props.
The learning continued into the afternoon where we had our Roman WOW Day. We got to sample a variety of different foods the Romans would have eaten during our feast!

We had the opportunity to recreate battles and perform for each other as the Romans would have done for their entertainment.

Helping Hands
What a lovely end to our Friendship Week! This morning, we paired up with children from Reception to complete our ‘Hands of Kindness’ activity. We had to draw around our partners’ hands and then think of lots of kind phrases to write onto our hands. After that, we shared a book with our partner. I am so proud of how well the children in Year 4 looked after and helped their Reception partners’.


Imaginary Fred
On Tuesday, we held an ‘Everybody Writes Day’. To tie in with friendship week, we looked at the story of Imaginary Fred by Eoin Colfer and Oliver Jeffers. We used drama to help us understand what it feels like to be lonely and then we began to explore all of the fun things we would get up to if we had an imaginary friend. After that, we produced a leaflet called, How to be a Good Imaginary Friend’.

What a brilliant half term! We have been so busy!
We have worked hard to secure our place value, addition and subtraction knowledge, and are beginning to apply our learning in order to solve problems.

Our topic has been all things Stone Age related! We are focusing on Stig of the Dump in English. We had lots of fun when we were learning about persuasive texts and had the opportunity to see our friend!
