Autumn 1

What a fun filled first half term we had, in year 4. When we arrived in our new classrooms, there was a mysterious box labelled 'Do not open...' The children found it very hard to ignore and for days they were tempted to open it. Eventually, and like Pandora, they opened the box. Luckily, no evil came flying out but it was an exciting way to start our topic all about Greek Myths!

The children produced some wonderful writing about mythical creatures and wrote their own chapter based on Theseus and the Minotaur'.

In maths, we started with revision on place value and the children were able to use the Maths Mastery approach to represent 4 digit numbers in a variety of ways.

In PE, Amber class have made a start on their weekly swimming lessons and they make us proud with how well behaved and polite they are with the instructors. Well done, Amber. Coral class made a start on their skipping skills using the 'skipping school' programme. The children are learning a series of individual and group skips and enjoy practising at play-times with our set of skipping ropes... watch out for 'the pretzel'.

In history, we learnt about ancient Greece and some of the significant achievements they had e.g. Olympic games.

In art, we designed and made Greek theatre masks. They are designed to be bright and have exaggerated facial expressions.

In science, we loved learning about sound and completed a series of experiments. We particularly enjoyed testing what happened when you put varied amounts of liquid into glass bottles and tapped them...some of us were even able to play 'twinkle, twinkle'!

In computing, we started by revisiting how to stay safe online and we created some word clouds. We then learnt about networks and rehearsed this offline by passing messages between computers, switches and routers!
