Welcome to 4TB
Tuesday – outdoors
Friday – indoors
Please ensure that an appropriate, labelled PE kit is in school for these days.
Beat That Test – Wednesday
This will be completed on Wednesdays. Scores will be recorded in diaries by the end of the week.
Spelling Test – Thursday
Spelling tests will be completed on a Thursday and new spellings given out. Scores will be recorded in diaries by the end of the week. Children will have plenty of opportunity to use these spellings during the week and should do so at home as well.
Diaries: Home diaries will be checked and signed by Mrs. Brown on a Friday each week.
Reading: Expectation is for the children to read at least 3 times a week and their reading diaries to be signed 3 times a week. We rely on the children to read regularly to a parent as we push on with more cross-curricular reading in KS2.
Autumn Term 1 Topic
Can Shadows Dance in The Night?
As part of our autumn term 1 topic we read a book called The Night Gardener by The Fan Brothers which we based our curriculum around. We then rewrote and innovated the stor. Alongside the Night Gardener, we covered our first science topic of ‘Can Shadows Dance in the Night?’ This allowed us to explore lights, shadows and electricity. We designed and made nightlights for a toddler. We learned how to make a circuit to light a bulb. We also investigated shadow sizes.
Take a look at our photographs from our science and design lessons.
Autumn Term 2 Topic
Anglo Saxon v Viking – Why have people invaded and settled in the past?
Our second autumn term topic we learned about the constant conflict between the Vikings and Anglo Saxons and how this affected the country. As part of our autumn term 2 topic we had a Viking and Anglo Saxon day. The children all dressed up as either an Anglo Saxon or Viking. A BIG thank you to the parents for their support with this, nearly all the children came in either a commercially bought or homemade outfit. We had a real life Viking come into school which we all enjoyed. We handled artefacts and looked at equipment, whilst also exploring other aspects of Anglo-Saxon and Viking life. The children in 4TB said they didn’t like the workshop .... they LOVED IT! During our art and design lesson we designed a shield for our Viking day.
Take a look at our photographs and videos from the day.
