Ancient Greek Day

On Monday, Tony North visited our class and we had a brilliant day learning more about the Ancient Greeks.  In the morning, we worked together to build a model of the Parthenon.  In the afternoon, we rehearsed a Greek Myth and then we performed it for Year 5.  We all had a fantastic time and Year 5 enjoyed watching us perform.

 

RE

In RE year 4 have been learning about the special relationship Jews have with God.
This week we have been learning about the Torah the Jewish holy book and how Jewish families look after the Torah and where it is kept in the Synagogue.
Children had the opportunity to look at the Torah and use the Yad to follow some of the beautiful Hebrew text.

Maths

Our maths lessons so far have been all about place value, we have been doing lots of things like partitioning numbers, ordering and comparing numbers, rounding numbers and much more. We don’t always find it easy but we all try our very best and we are really enjoying the lessons.

Topic

Following on from our History lesson on Friday when Mrs Pollitt took on the role of Pasaphe (The Minotaur’s Mother) we had a visit from Dr. Kidd and she came to carry on the story of Theseus and the Minotaur.  Some children also did a role play with Dr. Kidd.  We all designed a Labryinth and for our next lesson we will find out what happens when Theseus goes into the Labyrinth.

Living things and their habitats

On Monday, we dodged the showers and managed to do some fieldwork in the school grounds.  Our Science topic is ‘Living things and their habitats’ so we investigated what living things we could find.  We found lots of plants, trees and minibeasts.  We used good observational skills to locate the living things and we used an identification sheet to help us to name what we found.  We all had fun!
