Romans – History Trip
Our History learning has been focussed on the Romans arriving in Britain. Today, we were very lucky to have a hands on and interactive experience at The Verulamium Museum.
We had a lovely, cold and frosty walk across Verulamium and arrived ready to warm up and learn! We went back in time to explore a Roman market dressed as typical Roman civilians. Each stall at the market had a variety of different tools, foods, clothes and household objects. Some were very similar to objects we have now but some were significantly different! Then we had some time to explore the museum ourselves whilst drawing and noting down our findings. We looked at Roman ruins, statues, pottery, coins, mosaics and lots more!
A member of staff at the museum was very impressed with the children and celebrated that we were the best group for listening and focussing, that she has seen in a long time.
Well done Year 4 – you were all superstars! Thank you to our volunteers for joining us and being so wonderful!
Art – Making our Roman coins!
Today, we put our planning and designing into action with our creation of Roman coins! We spent time looking at our design whilst getting considering how to use a paper plate for the coin. Then, we carefully drew our design onto the plate, making sure to include and follow the steps of our design brief. Time to paint! We chose a colour to paint with and made sure to do a thin layer of paint on both sides of the coin. Lastly, we gathered our Roman coins together for a mini exhibition and reflection. We thought about what went well, what we enjoyed, what we liked of our own and others, what we would like to improve and what we would do next time.
Well done Year 4 – they look fantastic!
Our Science Experiment – Tooth Decay
We spent time planning our investigation by creating an equipment list, method and making our predictions!
Next, it was time to begin the experiment!
We worked collaboratively to work our way through the method, step by step, to ensure we carried out a fair test.
Here are our results! Can you believe the difference 1 week can make?
Reading with Year 1
As part of our Guided Reading lessons, we have been spending time with Year 1 . We take it in turns to read some of our book and explore the different images, words and layouts. Some weeks, we choose one word to focus on and teach our Year 1 partners about!
Learning about Diwali!
This week, we have been exploring the celebrations of Diwali. We have enjoyed looking at the beautiful Rangoli patterns as well as Diya Lamps and patterned lanterns. We learnt about the meaning of Diwali being the festival of light to signify light triumphing darkness and good triumphing over evil. We had a go at creating some Rangoli patterns of our own by using symmetrical patterns on filter paper.
