The children also took part in science experiments that including making volcanoes, the Coke and Mentos challenge besides looking at how quickly solids can become liquids.

Well done class 4, try and have a relaxing half term!

Week 7

 

This week was a tough week for Class 4 as we have taken part in assessments all week.  In celebration of finishing the tests, we had our 1066 day today in which all the children came to school dressed as Serfs.  The children have made shields, had some pottage (a soup made from 2 carrots, 2 potatoes, 1/4 of cauliflower some water, bay leaves, rosemary and a handful of oats).  The children ate this with gluten free bread and really loved it.  After dinner the children went outside and had a go at shooting bows and arrows before finishing their tin foil stained glass windows.

What a busy day - thank you to all the grown ups for supporting us with our Serf outfits.

Week 6

 

This week we began planning  our diary extracts in preparation for writing a diary of 'the day in the life of a Serf in 1066'.  The children have used story boards to plan the diaries, as well as studying similes and metaphors to use in the work.  The children have worked hard to master writing in first person and past tense.

Well done Class 4.

PS Don't forget its 1066 day next week!

Week 5

 

This week we have been adding humour to our Horrible History Reports. To do this we watched two episodes of Horrible Histories and looked at how they incorporated Jokes into their Historical recount.  The children really enjoyed this activity and were able to 'magpie' certain jokes into their own work.  We also looked at the stories of Abraham and Sarah, Isaac and Rebecca as well as their sons Jacob and Esau.  The children loved discussing the stories and are currently retelling them using powerpoint.

Week 4

 

This week we are learning to P.E.E.  P.E.E means to make a point, provide evidence to support the point and then explain the point in detail.  We are doing this in preparation for writing our Horrible Histories reports about the events of 1066.    The children made a fabulous first attempt at P.E.Eing as well as really working hard to up level their P.E.E's to make them better.

Well done Class 4.

Week 2

 

This week have continued to develop our understanding of the events of 1066.  This has included learning more about the Bayeux Tapestry which  took over 10 years to construct by Williams wife and ladies in waiting.  To do this we have looked at a scene from the tapestry and have drawn it ourselves.  The children have worked really hard on their drawings and I look forward to putting some pictures on the website. 

Children are now on spelling week two for homework.

Welcome back to school everyone!

 

This year class 4 will be fortunate enough to have myself (Mrs Bogic) and Mr Bunting teach them this term.  We are also lucky to be supported by Mrs Lemon during the mornings. 

After a nice long rest class 4 have returned to school to start the new topic of 1066.  In doing so we are currently completing fact files about our chosen future king.  We plan to use these fact files to create a presentation (using both power point and speech) to present our case to the Witan.  This will be in the style of an X factor panel.  The children have learnt about the prospective kings Harald Hadrada, Edgar Aethling, William the Duke of Normandy as well as Harold Godwineson.  They are currently carrying out their own research to develop their arguments to support their succession of King Edward to the throne.

Class 4 have also looked at the Bayeux tapestry which we learnt was not actually a tapestry but embroidery, in doing so we have started drawing a section of it to go in our topic books.

For homework this week children have had the next 6 weeks of spelling put into their books, they have to practise their times tables as well as writing a story or poem using 3 chosen words.

Great start Class 4 - well done!
