Reading with Year 1
4M have paired up with class 1B to share their books and reading. This is a fantastic opportunity for them to enjoy their reading together. Everyone loved it and we hope to be doing this on a weekly basis.
On Monday 6th November, we had a whole day dedicated to RE and in particular, Christianity. Year 4's focus was all about how art and literature are displayed in different churches.
To start the day off, we had a fantastic visitor, Sarah Dodd from NISCU, come in to talk about how language is used in stories to show different moods and feelings. She told us the story 'Sailing Through the Storm' and asked the children how the language made them feel.
After this, we went and visited two churches, Torrisholme Methodist Church and the Church of the Ascension, to see what similarities and differences they had in terms of how art and literature are displayed and their meaning. The children had a fascinating day and gave them lots to think about.
We are back!
I hope you have all had a fantastic half-term and are all ready for our next exciting new topic: Lights, Camera, Action!
During this half-term, we will be mainly focusing on Science and in particular, Light and Sound. We have some amazing experiments to carry out and I'm sure the children will love them. We will also have our School Production during this half-term and more details of this will follow soon. Please come and visit this page to have a look at all the fantastic things the children are doing in school.
On Thursday 19th and Friday 20th of October, the children of 4M had to design, plan, construct and evaluate a product to be able to transport things across the North Sea. The children came up with their own design and were restricted to a limited number of materials. Each and every product was completely different and all were built to an amazing standard with little input. Well done everyone!
Battle of Ragnarok
On Friday 13th of October, Year 4 re-enacted the Battle of Ragnarok. This was a battle between the Viking gods and the giants which they believed would end the known world. The children really got into character of the various gods and giants and had an epic battle. Have a look at the photos below.
On Tuesday 3rd and Wednesday 4th of October, 4M went to Morecambe High School and took on their climbing wall as part of our adventure days. It was quite challenging but everyone gave it their best effort to reach the top. Some faced their fears and really challenged themselves and this was great to see. Well done 4M!
Visit from the Viking Man
On Tuesday 19th September 2017, Year 4 had a very special visitor. The Viking Man came to our class and taught the children many facts about the Vikings. Did you know that the Vikings used tree bark to make their bread? He had many artifacts to show the children and brought the whole Viking experience to life.
In the afternoon, the children went to the Scout Hut and took part in many Viking activities such as weaving, making Viking coins and playing Viking games. It really was a fantastic day.
Welcome to Year 4M!
I hope you have all had a lovely summer break and are all ready and raring to go in Year 4! My name is Mr. McAnespy and I will be your teacher here in Year 4. We also have the wonderful Mrs. Turnbull, Mrs. Marriott, Miss Hall and Miss Thomas working with us as one big team.
We have a fun packed half term ahead of us and our first topic is going to be all about the Vikings. We can't wait to get started!
