We are Year 4
Please scroll down to find out more about what we are doing in Year 4.
Wroxeter Roman City
We visited the remains of the Roman City of Wroxeter. we were able to explore the bath houses and learn about how the Romans kept clean and healthy and why this was so important to them. We acted as if we were Romans visiting the baths, learning that we needed to pay someone to watch our clothes and prevent them from being stolen. We learned how to use a 'strigil' to scrap the dirt off our skins. We went into each of the rooms of the bath house and even saw the mark left by the builder of the baths. We also saw the Roman toilets - we are not sure we would have liked to have had to have used them!
We were also able to explore a reconstruction of a Roman town-house and find out about what it might have been like to live as a Romano-Briton.
We also visited the museum to look at some of the artefacts that archaeologists have discovered that help us know about everyday life in Roman Britain.

This term we have been exploring the world of the Ancient Egyptians, discovering pyramids, tombs, mummies and pharaohs.
For our outcome we have designed and created websites about the Ancient Egyptians.
On our websites you will be able to discover lots of interesting facts about Ancient Egypt. Find out how to mummify someone, how to get to the Field of Reeds (the Afterlife), why the Egyptians built pyramids and much more. Click on the links to go to the websites, there is one website for each group
We hope that you enjoy our websites.
Stone-Age Experience at The Kingswood Trust
Year 3 visited the Kingswood Trust to take part in a Stone Age Experience.
During the day we built shelters from branches and ferns like Stone Age people would have done when they were hunting for food.
We saw how to make a fire. We stripped thin branches of willow so they were clean and twisted bread dough onto them. We cooked our bread over the fire. Some of us were brave enough to eat our bread.
We learnt about how Stone Age people used flint to make tools and weapons and tried to shoot an arrow and throw a spear. We went foraging for fruits, nuts and berries.
We had to try to work out how Stone Age people moved the huge stones that were used to make Stonehenge.
We had a fantastic day.

In our computing lessons we have been looking at film making. We looked at some of the different jobs involved in film making: camera operators, directors and editors. We made a story board, used different types of shot and edited our film. Here are two examples but all of our films can be watched by clicking the link.
We hope you enjoy our films.

Christmas Productions 2020
Autumn Term 2020
Over this term, we have been very busy. We looked at the Hindu festival of Light – Diwali. Went on an autumn walk, used part, part wholes to solve maths problems, read the story of Elmer by David Mckee, creating our own mat in the style of Elmer’s patterns. We even carried out a water investigation to help teddy find a suitable material to build his tent.
During RE we investigated the different animals Christian’s believe God created. We thought about the wonders of the world and went on a walk to see what we could see. Later we are going to investigate, ‘Does God want Christian’s to look after the world?’
