Roses fir Year 4

We used drama and role-play to act out the War of the Roses. We belonged to either the House of York or the House of Lancaster.
The War of the Roses lasted from 1455 to 1485.
The Houses of York and Lancaster fought over who should be the King.
In the end, Henry VII won and married Elizabeth of York.

 

We also used different sources to find out historical facts about Tudor Monarchs. We used primary sources (portraits, accounts of the time) as well as secondary sources (books, IPADs). We presented our research as a group. We discussed “bias” in the way the monarchs were painted in their portraits and in some of the primary accounts.
Did you know that Edward VI was only king for 6 years?
Did you know that Elizabeth I gave nicknames to her favourite people?

Roman Numerals in Class 4

As part of our work on place value this week, Class 4 have been learning about Roman numerals and comparing them to our Arabic numerals. We used lolly sticks to create Roman numerals and had a go at some calculations!

Measuring weight – grams and kilograms

Class 3 have been using weighing scales to measure out different amounts of rice and reading from the scales.  We talked about the importance of weighing out the correct amounts and converting between grams and kilograms.

We also made quite a mess!

Stone Age Fun!

 

Class 3 have been creating lots of interesting pieces of work in Art with Mrs Lack.  The children took it in turns to handprint a boarder which will be used as part of our Global Showcase for class 3!
