History

Year 4 have been enjoying our Topic on the Ancient Romans. They were certainly an interesting bunch, and very clever. They organised their armies extremely well and conquered most of the territory around the Mediterranean Sea, as well as arriving into Britain too. They had excellent architects and lived in beautiful houses. They loved sports and leisure activities although we weren’t so sure how much fun it would be watching people being thrown to the lions!

 

 

Year 4

Upside Down Christmas Tree

Year 4 have gone all out for the ‘Upside Down Christmas’ theme. We made upside down Christmas Tree displays and decorated them with ‘baubles’ coloured in by the children. Each ‘bauble’ had a Christmas message which we have used instead of Christmas cards to cheer each other up!

 

Year 4

Sound

Year 4 have really been enjoying our Science topic – SOUND!

They have found out about how sound travels (as vibrations) over distance as well as through solids, liquids and gases.

They put some of their ideas to the test after making string/cup telephones. They found that sound travelled more effectively when the string was straight and pulled tight. They also decided to put “obstacles” (pegs and pens)  on the string to see if this would prevent the sound travelling as well. A loud, but informative lesson!

 

Whats been happeningYear 4

Roman Day

Year 4 have been learning about the Romans and their occupation of Britain. We learned about why the Romans wanted to expand their empire, and that they were successful due to their military tactics and organisation.
In DT we designed and made belts and headdresses using Roman mosaic-inspired patterns in cross stitch, which we wore on Roman Day.
We loved Roman Day! We designed and made shields, and then used them in Roman battle formations against each other.
