What we are doing this term in Year 4!
Temple, tombs and treasures
We have had a busy start to the term in Blue class. We had an afternoon being archeologists and explorers in Ancient Egypt. There was lots of digging for artefacts and sharing our knowledge together. We even did an interactive quiz to test our knowledge.
The Digestive System
Things got a bit messy in Blue class when we were discovering how the digestive system works.
Building our own digestive systems we discovered how enzymes break down food; how nutrients are absorbed into our bodies and how food passes through our intestines and is excreted from our bodies.
Black History Month
In Blue class we have been learning about the Empire Windrush. The Windrush was a British ship that sailed from the Caribbean to England bringing families to England to help rebuild the country after the war. We have been exploring what it would have been like for a child coming to England. Reading the poem 'The Windrush Child' by John Agard, we have been planning, creating and showing our understanding of the poem by making our own versions using stop animation.
Windrush Child by John Agard
palm trees wave goodbye
seabirds asking why
blue water rolling by
your Windrush mum and dad
think of storytime yard
and mango mornings
and new beginnings
doors closing and opening
will things turn out right?
At least the ship will arrive
in midsummer light
and you Windrush child
think of grandmother
telling you don't forget to write
and with one last hug
walk good walk good
and the sea's wheel carries on spinning
and from that place England
you tell her in a letter
of your Windrush adventure
stepping in a big ship
not knowing how long the journey
or that you're stepping into history
bringing your Caribbean eye
to another horizon
grandmother's words your shining beacon
learning how to fly
the kite of your dreams
in an English sky
walking good walking good
in a mind-opening
meeting of snow and sun
Have a look at a snippet of our work!
Windrush Child- Stop animation
In school we have been celebrating the Hindu festival of light. It is a way of saying goodbye to old ways such as: evil for good, light for dark, ignorance for intelligence. We dressed up in some amazing clothes; had a go at Henna tattoos and made Diwali lamps to burn away the negative ways. We got to eat lunch with beautiful lamps on our tables and amazing Hindu music playing.
