Year 4 are Tudors for the day!

This week we visited Gainsborough Old Hall (the former home of Lord Thomas Burgh) and re-enacted the Great  Banquet attended by King Henry VIII and his wife, Catherine Howard.

We worked in the kitchens – it was hard work!  We had to serve and provide entertainment at the Great Banquet.

We explore the Old Hall including The Tower, Ghost Corridor and The Solar Room.

Road safety week in class 4!

As part of Road safety week, class 4 unpicked a story about a girl who didn’t follow the rules when crossing the road. She found herself in a very risky and dangerous place. Class 4 discussed how the accident happened and how to avoid it happening again.  They were really enthusiastic about how they could keep safe and a few suggestions were: ‘Stop, look and listen’ and ‘We should never cross the road, between two parked cars’.

Well done class 4, great ideas for keeping safe while travelling to school. 

Please follow the link to hear their story.

Beegu Crash Lands into Class 4!

We have had an unexpected arrival in the Year 4 classroom this week……..

As part of our Global Learning, we have used the book Beegu to think about how it feels to be an outsider and how we can respond to people who do not feel like they belong.

Roses for 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!
