Anti - Bullying Week 20.11.17 All Different All Equal
This week we have been reflecting on the issues around bullying and joined in with the national initiative Anti-Bullying Week for all schools. The slogan this year is All Different All Equal. As a response, children made a Friendship Tree with kind words and messages, as well as good advice to prevent bullying. Cyber-bullying was also keenly discussed and children had lots of good ideas on how to stay safe and how to deal with online bullying. Well done Year 4!

Year 4 Remembrance Assembly

Year 4 enjoyed presenting our Remembrance Assembly, we have learned lots about this important time of year and it was great to share it with you through poetry and songs. Thank you for being a part of it too.

 

A Visit from Library Services

On Monday 6th November Year 4 had a fabulous time with Alex McGowan from Library Services, who did a very engaging book talk with the class. He recommended lots of fun books and left a large sample of books that we will be able to borrow for some months. The whole class have been invigorated to read more!

Our Anglo Saxon and Viking Day

 

We certainly had a blast from the past this week, when we delved into the world of the Saxons and Vikings! Children learnt how to make Viking bread, Anglo-Saxon brooches, painted Viking helmets, had an ambush, threw spears and even chose our Viking leader by attending a ‘Thing’. In the afternoon, we played traditional Viking/Saxon games such as ‘tug of war’, throwing ‘spears’ and ‘jump the oars’.

Below, you will find some video recordings of children's persuasive speeches to the class; pitching for Viking Chief of the Day.

We hope you will enjoy the pictures as much as we have enjoyed this interesting history topic!

Listen to our Viking Speeches!

Year 4 have been exploring Hinduism and its practices and beliefs. We have been looking at Puja; finding out how Hindus pray at home or in a Mandir, (Hindu Temple).

WOW Basketball Day

On Monday 18th September, year 4 enjoyed meeting Paul Sturgess, who is the tallest man in Britain. He taught us lots of basketball skills. A great afternoon!
