Summer Term in 4C

The Egyptians have arrived in 4C!

 

We are all really enjoying our Ancient Egyptians topics.

Our favourite topic so far has been mummification, perhaps because it involves so much gore and guts!

 

Take a look at what we've been up to.

Mummification - Removing the brains! (Made from spaghetti!)

Welcome back to year 4! We've got an exciting new topic this term, 'The Ice Age'. 

 

I wonder what you already know about the Arctic and Antarctica?!

 

Be careful, there may be some polar bears and penguins around school...

 

This term, we have our assembly and it is going to be all about our topic!

What do you think can be done about Global Warming? 

 

Please add your ideas to our post-it note display in class. Parents and Carers are welcome to share their ideas too!

This term we are studying The Tudors. What do you already know? 

 

Have you heard of William Shakespeare? We have been learning how to write playscripts and performance skills. We then put these to the test when we went to the allotment this week and performed The Tempest! It was extremely windy and did begin to rain but it didn't stop us perfoming! We focussed on our speaking skills in terms of projecting our voices as well as performing actions and facial expressions.

 

The weather simulated what the setting was - a storm out at sea on a ship followed by action taking place on the island. Our Narrators informed us of the story at the beginning of our play. 

 

Find out about The Tempest by reading the story version of it!

This terms topic in 4C is 'Atlantis'. Relating to this we have been working really hard to complete Atlantis stories for our display. Everyone in class has been making an Octopus out of newspaper which was really messy and fun!! Our display is viewable in class if parents/carers would like to come and see them!

Octopus making!!!

In 4C we completed debates in groups about whether we should wear a school uniform or not. We had a chairperson, proposers, opposers and time keepers. We had to use discursive language to start our arguments for and against.

Being part of a Debate!
