Making Masks03-12-2020 | 16:05:44 | No Comments

This morning Year 4 have been using Modroc to make Ancient Greek masks.

The Greeks used masks to show their emotions in performances as people sat so far away they couldn’t see the actors faces. The brightly coloured masks could be seen from all areas of the theatre. You could even wear a mask to show you were one of the many mythical creatures like the cyclops!

We used Modroc as you can mold and shape it to form the different parts of the face. The children worked really hard and produced some great masks ready to paint.

Mental Maths27-11-2020 | 15:52:38 | No Comments

In Maths this week we have been thinking about subtraction and the most effective way to subtract one number away from another. We discussed mental methods of subtraction and how we can round one number to the nearest 100 to help us work this out effectively in our heads. We started with 99. We rounded it to 100 but then also had to remember to add 1 back on afterwards!

We had great fun rolling the dice to play a game for subtracting 99.

Our short week after self-isolation20-11-2020 | 15:43:01 | No Comments

We have had a fantastic few days back in school after our time self-isolating. We missed each other lots so it was nice to be able to catch up with each other.

We were so pleased with all the home learning done, that we were able to make a small display showing some of the work from portfolios so we could share this with each other.

Once again thank you all for your support with the home learning and time in self-isolation.

Is it physical or is it human?23-10-2020 | 14:32:26 | No Comments

In Geography, we have been thinking about human and physical features. We discovered what each of these terms means and then tried to find examples of them using a map of Werrington.

We then went outside to use a compass and discover the eight points of a compass

Celebrating Black History Month16-10-2020 | 14:41:00 | No Comments

This afternoon in Year 4 we have been learning about and celebrating some key figures, both from history and in the present day. We created our own jigsaw piece showing how we are different from one another. We then joined all our pieces together to show how even though we are different we can all come together.

Messy Modroc09-10-2020 | 14:46:07 | No Comments

This afternoon we have been experimenting with modroc ready for our final art work creating an ancient Greek theater mask.

It is messy but great for mask making as you can mold it when wet and dries solid.

Exploring Circuits21-09-2020 | 06:37:42 | No Comments

Last week in Science we began to look into the workings of the electrical equipment around us.

We then were given the equipment to create our own circuit and tried to make the bulb light up.

Getting to grips with vocabulary.11-09-2020 | 15:17:05 | No Comments

This week in Year 4 we have had a big focus on vocabulary.

In Guided Reading we have been focusing on vocabulary questions such as:

What does the word ‘plains’ mean on pg 6? What does the writer mean when he describes the city as ‘Mighty’? What does the writer mean when he writes, ‘…an invisible city’?

All of these questions link to our text for this term called ‘The boy who cried horse’ an adaptation of the story of the Trojan horse.

In English we have been looking at the different types of words in a sentence and how we can make them better.

We created a verb caterpillar, an adjective flower and noun jellyfish! Take a look!

First Week in Year 404-09-2020 | 15:20:23 | No Comments

What a super first (mini) week we have had!

Not only have we been looking at our new Topic of the Ancient Greeks but we have been writing some fantastic descriptions in English.

Today we continued our work on Ancient Greek pottery and after becoming an archaeologist and looking at some images of real Ancient Greek pots we used that information to design our own. Miss Whitmore and Miss Hampson were so impressed they have put them to sell in a pottery shop!

Take a look.
