For our World Book Day, we looked closely at the school book ‘The Journey’ and tried to bring the pictures to life through drama. This allowed the children to consider possible dialogue in the story to put into our own piece of adventure story writing.
This half term, we have been reading about the Wacky World of Ritzy City which is the home of the supernatural tournament – Witch Wars! In preparation for our extended writing, we created our own ‘Witch Wars’ which allowed the children to discover their inner wizard/witch.
This term in maths, we have been learning Roman numerals. As our challenge, we explored different Roman numerals using lollipop sticks. Marshall realised that if we knew the numeral for 500 we could count up to 800.
A huge ‘Well Done’ to the child, who produced a fantastic match report in our Year 3 and Year 4 Football Writing club with Leeds United. As the winner, his report made it into the match day programme.
This week, we were lucky enough to have a visit from Leeds Discovery Centre and were able to compare different Ancient Egyptian artefacts.
In Year 4, we have been making some gruesome goblins to help us write our non-chronological reports.
