Topic

 Misty Mountain Sierra 

 

After

After Easter we are due to start our new topic Misty Mountain Sierra! 

Mighty mountains peak above the morning mists, imposing and eternal, rocky outcrops at their feet. Discover how these giants are formed, as a fold or a block, a dome or a plateau. Follow the water cycle’s course from peak to valley and meet the exceptional tribes of the hostile Himalayas. Then plan a mountain expedition from the BMC that is eco-friendly and safe as can be. But beware, look out! What’s that by that tree? Its footprints are huge! Have we found the Yeti?

Wishing all of our wonderful children and families a safe isolation period. Remember not all learning is done in the classroom. Use these troubling times to spend quality time with your little ones. Make bread and teach them about measurements and capacity, bake cakes, learn to tell the time, create a birds eye view map of your garden or yard.

We will continue to update our class pages to offer new learning ideas and information.

 

Take care and be safe,

Mrs Potter.

Reading

We love reading in Year 3/4- we think it is Magical!
Every Monday Mrs Potter checks our reading diary and if we have read 5 times we get to move up on the clever cauldrons display. Once we have 30 reads we get a treat!Converting

 

Look below to see what's going on in Year 3/4!

Year 3-4 have evaluated their Viking Longboats against their own design criteria by testing them to see if they floated.

Feeling peckish? Year 3-4 have written some marvellous recipes for making Anglo-Saxon bread based on their forest school lessons.

Some problem solving and reasoning going on in Year 3/4 this morning. They are inverse masters!

Year 3-4 have been learning all about imperative verbs to help them write their Anglo-Saxon bread recipes. Today, they had to use imperative verbs to navigate their partner through an obstacle course.

Today Year 3/4 acted out King Alfred the Great's defeat of a Viking army and the signing of the Danelaw.

Today Year 3/4 were Historical master chefs! They made Anglo-Saxon their own Anglo-Saxon bread!

Year 3/4 have been conducting a historical enquiry using artefacts; they were archaeologists who had discovered artefacts that were part of a Viking ship burial. They had to decide what they told them about the Viking they belonged to.

During forest school today Year 3/4 have been grinding oats to make flour just like the Anglo-Saxons would have done. Check back next week when we will be making Anglo-Saxon bread!

Today Year 3/4 made Anglo-Saxon huts. 

Year 3/4 have been mastering the over arm and under arm throws. They had lots of fun, can you tell?

Year 3/4 have blown Mrs Potter's socks off today with their final drafts! Have they persuaded you to visit Iceland?

Year 3/4's assembly was a huge success! Thank you to all the parents who came! 

During forest school this week we used fieldwork to observe and record the human and physical features in the local area using a sketch maps and plans.

Year 3/4 are loving their dance sessions!

As part of our Traders and Raiders topic, Year 3/4 have made Anglo-Saxon Rune stones spelling their name. 

Sometimes, always, never?: When making a number 10 less you only change the 10s column.

It's sometimes and Year 3/4 can prove it!

As part of our Traders and Raiders topic, Year 3/4 have made Anglo-Saxon shields!

The week commencing Monday 20th January 2020 the children of Year 3/4 will be having a 'friendship challenge.' where if they play with someone new they get a dojo. 

Today Year 3/4 learnt that we have a responsibility to protect some habitats including our Forest school. So we did a litter pick to help remove anything that could damage the habitat.

As part of our Traders and Raiders topic, Year 3-4 have been using atlases to identify which countries in Europe the Anglo-Saxons, Vikings and Scots invaded from. 

Today during our Forest School time we explored and used classification keys to help identify and name a variety of living things in our local environment.

Watch out X Factor, Year 3/4 sounded like angels singing Candles in the Window!

We made clay creatures that live in the Great Barrier Reef!
