Our topic for this term is ‘Veni, Vidi, Vici’ through which pupils will learn what life was like for a Roman in Gloucester. We have a trip to the Corinium Museum in Cirencester and a virtual visit to the British Museum booked so it promises to be a very exciting topic!
We will be having a Roman week from Monday 24th to Friday 28th February. There are a variety of activities planned for this week such as examining Roman artefacts from Gloucester Museum, having an interactive lesson with the British Museum and learning some Latin. We will also watch the Horrible Histories Rotten Romans movie that was released last year. As this is rated a PG, please let your child’s teacher know if you do not wish your child to watch it by Monday 24th February at the latest.

Year 4 Triumph Over Challenge Day
Year 4 pupils were told that they would have to work harder than they had all year and engage both their bodies and their brains. They would also spend most of the day failing. Angus Mcleod gave pupils 10 minutes to learn how to 'master' each of the following skills: juggling, use devil sticks, spin 'things', balance feathers and poles and use gymnastic ribbons. They were then given 10 minutes to create a routine, with their group, to perform to the rest of the class. They also practised some additional circus skills in class. We are incredibly grateful for FODJS funding this fantastic experience. Here’s how they got on:
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.
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!!

Outdoor Learning: Classifying mini-beasts at Barnwood Arboretum
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!
Welcome to Year 4!
Our topic for the Summer term is Wild Things: we are learning all about animals and their habitats.
