Year 4 Class Vlog - 20.04.20
Welcome back! After two weeks away a new class vlog arrives, as Mr Thompson attempts his next challenge.
Announcement: Year 4 Greek Parthenon Building Workshop - November 27th
As part of this term's learning in Year 4, we are delighted to confirm with you that we have booked a Greek Parthenon Building Workshop for the afternoon on November 27th. Children will work individually, in teams and altogether to construct a very large model of the famous Temple of Athena in Athens, name the Parthenon, complete with columns, pedaments and capitals. During the process pupils will learn about the different parts of the building and walking through the structure. There will be problem solving, teamwork and a great celebration when they raise the roof using the 2m high columns.
We're excited for this opportunity for the children and hope you can support them in being able to attend.
Firstly, thank you to those who came to the curriculum evening this week, it was wonderful to share the exciting learning we have planned this year.
For those who didn't attend, some key points:
Every Wednesday Home Learning Books need to be returned, the Homework Grid has been loaded up onto the blog (see below).
Every Wednesday morning a timestable test will take place, use the website www.timestables.co.uk if you wish to support your child in learning these. The website provides a range of activities as well as a test, which can be customised to support your child further, timings and timestables can be edited.
Every Thursday morning a spelling test takes place (see below for spellings).
Finally, it's been an exciting first full week in Year 4! We've begun our Ancient Greek topic by investigating how chronology works and also had a fantastic street dancing workshop where everyone was busting a move.
We're very excited for a fantastic year ahead, have a lovely weekend.
