Year 4 Tudor Immersion Day
As part of our topic this term, we will be exploring how the local area has changed over time and linking it to the Tudors. Yesterday was a great interactive learning experience where we cooked typical Tudor recipes like: vegetable pottage, spiced apple juice and bread. It was great to apply our mathematical and science skills during food technology. We were surprised at how simple and delicious these Tudor recipes were.
In the afternoon, we were extremely lucky to receive expert dance tuition from Mr Dowling & Mrs Duarte. It was fun working in pairs and with boys and girls as we learned how to curtsey, rotate and sequence a repertoire of Tudor dance moves. We could hear Len Goodman from Strictly Come Dancing shouting, ‘Seven!’
Coat of Arms
We studied how Coats of Arms were designed and the children created their own to reflect their interests and characters. Finally, we re-enacted the Battle of Bosworth on the school playing field and, surprise, surprise, Henry Tudor won!
Autumn Term 2018
The children have really enjoyed their first half-term in Willow and Oak class. Studying the Mayans and their love of chocolate was great fun! Our guided reading book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, has enabled us to delve deeper into the aspects of retrieval and inference.
Writing is a key focus as pupils are expected to produce high standards of work. Taking pride in our presentation is very important as we strive to earn our pen licence. Pupils are continually taught about pencil grip, posture and book positioning in order to produce consistent cursive legible handwriting.
