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.

Behind you

Windrush child

palm trees wave goodbye

 

above you

Windrush child

seabirds asking why

 

around you

Windrush child

blue water rolling by

 

beside you

Windrush child

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


Windrush child

walking good walking good

in a mind-opening

meeting of snow and sun

Diwali Celebration

 

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.
