We have been extremely busy so far in year 4, here are some examples of our topic work.
We have completed a timeline of events, learning about the key events that have taken place to help shape history, found out about Roman soldiers and Roman gladiators and written a set of instructions if how to become a Roman gladiator. In maths we have been learning our Roman numerals so have created a Roman sun dial.
This afternoon in class 4 we have been preparing the next pages in our topic books. First we are painting our colosseums and then we are going to add lots of information following our learning all about Roman Gladiators.
As we draw to the end of the school year, we have been reflecting on all that we have achieved. Please take a look at all of the amazing learning that has taken place in year 4, both in school and at home!
Thank you Year 4 for a fabulous year that we will never forget! You are all amazing!
Lots of Friday afternoon fun in the forest this term. From creating tree faces, making magic wands & potions, to building dens and enjoying toasted marshmallows & hot chocolate around the fire, we thoroughly enjoyed our forest school learning.
last week we celebrated anti-bullying week with a theme of ‘change starts with us’ we though about how we could make our school community a happier place for everyone.
It was lovely to see the children focusing on being kind, paying each other compliments, offering support, praising effort and SMILING! The children have made a pledge to make a small change to their behaviour in school that could make a huge difference to someones day.
The children also wore odd socks to celebrate diversity and to highlight that we are all unique and special.
Year 4 and 5 went to Crewe Lyceum to perform as part of Singfest. Marlfields were even lucky enough to be invited to stay in the afternoon to play with Congleton Orchestra in which we had such a brilliant time. Thank you to Love Music Trust for inviting us. More pictures to follow.
Today we’ve been really lucky to have a visit from an author. Billy Bob Buttons has written lots of books and taught us about characterisation. He helped us use similes and metaphors to tell our readers about characters. We also used our senses to describe them. We learnt that it is important to make our characters seem real.
This morning we had an introduction assembly to Science week, we found out that if you add bicarbonate of soda to lemon it causes a chemical reaction and fizzes, to make it more exciting we added food colouring. After this we worked collaboratively in our house teams and had a Forest School morning. We were given four different activities to complete in our groups. The yellow team started at the pond area, we were given a scavenger hunt to do and the resources to do tree rubbings. We were very successful and found all of the things Miss Carter had put on the list even a wild card item, we think we will get the extra points for ours.
The second activity we completed was the den building, we had lots of fun and even used rope and tarpolein to make our den draft free. The third activity we completed after break time was the collaborative art, we had a big yellow sheet and found lots of natural materials to put together to show our team animal which is a snow leopard. Finally we were in the quad planting nasturtiums, we took it in turns filling our pots with compost, popping the seeds in, covering them and watering them.
It was such a wonderful start to the week, even the sunshine came out. A big thank you to Mrs Daley and Miss Carter for arranging a fabulous morning!
We are here safe and sound and have settled into our new home for the night. We have taken part in a drama workshop with Clem from the busy days company. Our theme was volcanoes and earthquakes. We work hard to be creative, imaginative, and to work as a team. We had lots of fun and have laughed a lot too.
