Year 4 Teacher
Welcome to Year 4's class page. In Year 4, the teacher is Miss Wilson and the Teaching Assistants that help with our learning are, Mrs Souyad, Mrs Richardson, Mrs Weir and Miss Hopkin.
Our PE days are Tuesdays and Thursdays, but please ensure your child has the correct PE kit in school every day.
Home learning is set on a Wednesday and handed in on a Tuesday. We set English or Maths work to link in with our current learning. The children are also expected to read every day for 10-15 minutes.
Home Learning - for Tuesday 18th April
Children are to complete the Maths activity in their homework books.
Children are to research and design a Viking Longboat. Two of these designs will be chosen after half term that the whole class will work on to create!
For the last couple of weeks the children have been designing and making their own Viking shields linked to our History topic. Below are some pictures of the finished designs
Monday 6th March - Viking Poems
Today the children read and acted out a Viking Poem (see pictures below). They then produced some of their own poems about Danegeld. Here is one written by John ~
'Come, come has the time to flee,
When I paid it, it never came to me,
That they would come back,
'cos I don't have a stack,
Of money surrounding me.
I have to go into hiding,
Fore come has the time to flee,
I didn't think I'd be on the brink,
Of death in a blood red sea.
Death is all around me,
Noble warriors on the ground,
I can't do anything to stop it,
But death is surely around.'
Visit to Escot Park - Thursday 2nd February 2017
Last Thursday, the class went to Escot Park to visit the Anglo-Saxon village. This linked in with our Anglo-Saxon and the Scots history unit they have studied this half term. The children got to explore the village and surrounding area and learnt traditional Anglo-Saxon trades, such as whittling and carving, chopping logs for the fires, making bread and corn grinding.
All children and staff thoroughly enjoyed this day. Take a look at our pictures below.
