Year 4

 

Year 4 Update (6 images)

The children have had an excellent start to year 4 and have been working very hard in class. The theme for the term is The Roving Romans. The children have met a Roman Soldier, made Roman coins and created some beautiful artwork showing Roman buildings. We have also been practicing lot of singing and had a lovely morning at Bournville Primary School taking part in the annual North Somerset Singing Festival ‘Raise the Roof’. The children were invited to the Tropicana to The Icescape for an ice-skating session. They had a fabulous time. There was lots of laughter and smiling faces. Everyone had great fun and were exhausted afterwards. Year 4 have also been receiving emails from Mrs Neale’s son Connor who is in the Royal Navy, serving on HMS Queen Elizabeth. The children look forward to hearing about life at sea and seeing the photographs he sends.

Year 4 (8 images)

In Year 4 this term we have been learning about rivers and mountains around the world. We began by making 3D models to show how rivers start at the source up high, often in the mountains, and meander downhill across the countryside, widening and joining with other rivers until they reach the sea. We have learnt about the different habitats a river may pass through along its journey from its source to the sea and the different plants and animals that may be found living there. We have been particularly interested in the impact plastics are having on these habitats and the damage that plastics can have on the oceans when they are carried there by rivers. In May, we had a day trip to Slimbridge Wetland Centre where we looked at birds, otters and beavers in their own natural habitats. We had fun feeding the birds and listening to wildlife using sound guns to magnify sounds made by birds and other animals.
