Welcome to Year 4

 

Our topic for the Summer term is ‘Veni, Vidi, Vici’ through which pupils will learn what life was like for a Roman soldier in Britain. We have a Roman day (funded by the Friends of Dinglewell Juniors), a trip to Chedworth Roman Villa and a virtual visit to the British Museum booked so it promises to be a very exciting topic! More details about these events will be sent out in due course. In connection with this topic, we have organised for the Year 4 pupils to exhibit their work in Hucclecote Library towards the end of Term 6 for the local community to visit.

Brilliant Bookworms!

 

Year 4 have visited Hucclecote Library to peruse the many books they have on offer. We had a great time and chose some really exciting and intriguing books. Ms. Hayward was particularly impressed by some of their Christmas books. We can't wait to go again,  early next term.

South Pole 2020 talk by Wendy Searle

Uploaded by Class Eight on 2017-09-28.

Explorer, Wendy Searle, visited Year 4 to give a presentation on her 2020 expedition to Antarctica. The children got to try  wearing/using some of her polar equipment and clothes. We also got to sample some of the dehydrated meals she will eat, such as 'chicken tikka with rice' and 'apple and custard pudding' - they were delicious! Just before lunch, Wendy made the Year 4 staff take turns to pull her training tyre around the school field. What a great morning and what an inspiring visitor!!

Class 5 have been composing music as part of our 'Wild Things' topic. In groups, we composed musical themes to describe different animals. We shared our compositions with each other and tried to guess what animals we were describing. It was great fun!

Our topic for the Autumn term is 'Veni Vidi Vici': We came, we saw, we conquered. We are celebrating all things Roman with a particular focus on the impact the arrival of the Romans had on Britain.

Welcome to the Year 4 2016-17 blog. Over the coming weeks we will post more of the Roman work we are doing in school.
