Year 4 started the Spring Term with a Drama workshop led by Divergent Drama to kick off their new topic (Settlers and Invaders) by re-enacting the life of Alfred The Great. They then applied this knowledge to create a fact file about him in their Topic lesson.
In Art, we have been looking at the technique of pointillism and the children used this technique to paint a Viking long ship which were displayed in the art frames around the school.
The children have also been busy creating Viking artefacts for their homework activity which we think enhances our Topic dislays in class. Well done Year 4 and thank you to all the parents for supporting your children at home with this.
The children enjoyed performing their Good News Nativity. We are sure you all agree they did themselves, us and you as parents proud.
On the 19th and 21st of November, Year 4 pupils visited Ninesprings Country Park as part of their Fantastic Beast Topic learning. The children learnt about the water cycle and used keys to clasify mini beasts found in the river. The children also discussed ways that the environment could be improved to create better habitats for wildlife at Ninesprings.
Year 4 children at Holy Trinity have been getting to grips with using concrete resources to help their understanding of place value, particularly negative number. It was great to see the lightbulb moments when children finally grasped the concept and flew with their diagnostic review sheets. We were so proud of them! Additionally, the children were then able to link this prior knowledge to their work on sequences, explaining that no sequence ever ends at zero.
We have also been wowed by the beautiful homework that has been flying in recently, some quite literally! Year 4 children were asked to be as creative as possible and make a fantastic beast using whatever resources they could find at home. As you can see, some truly fantastic beasts have been created and children are really keen to now start writing their non-chronological reports about them.
