Think. Do. Achieve

Here we are!  Year 4

 Welcome to Mrs Gage's and Mrs Harvey's Class. Our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Hennell

We composed a class rap as part of our music, thinking about rhythm, pulse, rhyme and keeping a steady beat!

The Anglo-Saxons

We have been learning about the Anglo-Saxons. We started our topic by making sure the Saxon recipe biscuits we made didn't get burnt as in the legend of King Arthur! We have found out where they came from and why. This week we have been archaeologists, looking at artefacts from the Sutton Hoo dig, trying to work out what they were and how they were used by the Saxons.

Attenborough Nature Reserve

We had our first trip of the year to Attenborough Nature Reserve. Our trip linked to our topic which was all about different habitats. While we were there, we explored a woodland habitat, looking for different minibeasts (we found a frog!!), we went pond dipping and then bird watching. It was great!!!

These are pictures from Year 4 Pond Club.  We meet on Thursday lunchtimes.   The children had a fun time doing some pond dipping and we caught a fish!  It helps us to understand the pond habitat and what lives there.
