Our Autumn Term Big Question is:
What did the Tudors leave behind?
In Science we have been exploring static electricity. The children had some hair raising fun generating their own static electricity and exploring how its charge reacted to different objects around the classroom - including their hair!
Year 4 were invited to Lichfield Library to take part in a craft workshop. Each class made a poppy memorial to keep in school and the children made an individual poppy to go on the libraries memorial display.
The children recreated a Tudor pastime of Nine Men Morris. They had to draw out the game board before playing against their opponent.
Henry VIII Blind Date
We wanted to find out which wife was the best - so we played Tudor Blind date. The winning wife was Catherine of Aragon. Do you agree?
Year 4 investigated factors by playing factor (bug) splat.
Class Worship - 4ST
4ST carried out their class worship thinking carefully about showing tolerance towards other religions.
Year 4 have been exploring adverbials using sentence building techniques and Drama using our Class Text.

International Language Day
On Tuesday 26th September Year 4 learnt some Italian.
We had fun learning to count, the colours and so basic phrases.
Battle of Bosworth
Year 4 have been to battle. The children enjoyed taking on different roles and recreating the famous battle.
In science we are exploring electricity and the children explored making circuits to see:
- Who could make light?
- How bright can you make your light?
- Can you make a noise with your circuit?
We were very lucky to have a visitors in year 4 who taught us all about sustainability and the three R's.
Recycle, Reuse and Reduce.
