Spring Term
Spring Term Project Activities for Home
We invite you to choose one or two of the suggested example activities below to compliment your topic work in school. There will be time to share your creations in the last week of term.
 
  1. Create a fact file all about one (or more) of the many European countries.
  2. Research traditional food from European countries. Perhaps you could try making some at home (only if your parents agree) and telling us all about how it went and what it tasted like?
  3. Try creating some art work inspired by European flags. You could use the techniques we are learning in school or try new techniques of your own.
As always, you might have an idea of your own that links in with our project work this term.
 
 
 
 
In PSHE, Mrs Unwin and Mrs Kellock have been training us in Peer Mediation.
Today we took our maths lesson outside to practise ordering positive and negative numbers.
In literacy we created inventions that Wallace and Gromit would be proud of. We then had to create advertising campaigns to try to get investment for our cracking contraptions.
World Book Day
 
Here we are creating persuasive adverts for some of our favourite books.
We love opening letters from our French pen pals. We can't wait to send our replies.
Here's a sneak peek of us practising for our class assembly.
In music, we work hard to learn how to play the recorder.
Caution!

Investigation: Sweets Around a Party Table
We worked up quite a sweat competing in the Indoor Athletics event! Mr Sutton and his team from Sawston were great leaders.
Here we are, scouting the school grounds for resources for our natural sculptures inspired by the artist, Andy Goldsworthy. Watch this space for the finished works...

In art, Year 4 created Roman mosaics for their calendars.

In maths we all used the Dienes blocks to explain our subtraction calculations.
In gymnastics, we practised and practised to perfect our balance sequences.
The whole school had a fantastic RE day. Year 4 especially loved the chance to be reflective, quiet and thoughtful in the prayer space.
In small groups, Year 4 made models of Roman temples.
At the end of our Romans project, Y4 had the opportunity to bring in any of the homework challenges they had tried at home and present their work to the class. The work that was shared was fantastic!
Our final challenge for our Romans project was to create a quiz based on what we had learnt. We then tried out our quizzes with the Year 3s who were very good sports.
