Mrs Dodson, Mr Ivers, Mrs Bebb and Mrs Todd welcome you to Year 4. We have lots of new and exciting topics to study throughout the year, from the Ancient Greeks to Rainforests, from Romans to Volcanoes! We also get to go swimming every week!
As an introduction to our new History topic, we had a Greek food tasting session. We didn't just buy the food, we made our own Tzatziki dip to enjoy with pitta and flatbreads. It was all delicious!
We learnt all about this civilisation and had fun bringing elements to life. We made headdresses - did you know the bigger your headdress, the more important you were?!? We made Maya hieroglyphs from clay. We also tried to play the Maya game 'Pok tu Pok', you couldn't use your hands or feet to move a ball which was a lot harder than it looked!
Place Value work
We took our learning outside and found natural resources to represent 3 digit numbers.
50 things to do before you leave Crossley Street
We headed outside again to have a go at one of the 50 things activities. We all had great fun climbing trees!
With Mr Ivers, we have practised different french greetings. We worked with a partner to have a short conversation in French.
Within our topic of Place Value, we have learnt the roman numerals for numbers upto 100. We watched a great video to help us. We were then set the challenge of making the numbers using lollipop sticks. Some of the numbers were quite tricky!
Maya Hieroglyphs Scavenger Hunt
Mrs Dodson sent us on a scavenger hunt around the school. We had to find and record 14 different Maya hieroglyphs. Drawing some of them was hard as they didn't just draw a picture of the thing they were describing. The word for 'jaguar' can actually be written 15 different ways!
