Rowan - Year 4

Earth Hour

On Sunday 22nd April, it is Earth Day, a day where people try to do their bit for the environment by using less electricity or things that are harmful to the world. This year the focus is on plastic pollution. The children in Rowan Class researched Earth Day on Wednesday in preparation for today, as the school decided to have an Earth hour. During this time we were not allowed to use laptops, smart-boards or paper. The children came up with lots of ideas of what we could do in this hour and how we could incorporate plastic into it so we were reusing it . This afternoon we spent the hour making an obstacle course out of the bottles the children brought in and taking it in turns on each event. As you can see in the photos, the children had lots of fun!

Beowulf Story Map

Beowulf Story Map 1
Our new English topic is writing biographies/autobiographies. This week we have learned a biography about Beowulf off by heart with actions, to help us with the language and structure we would like to use when we write our own. If you would like to practice at home, you can use the story map. I have also put a link for the words.

Anglo-Saxon Museum

This afternoon Year 4 have presented all their homework projects and learning over the past two terms. In class, the children have learned about the Anglo-Saxon burial site at Sutton Hoo and made artefacts found at the site out of clay. Also, they have learned about the different Gods the Anglo-Saxons believed in and made posters about these. We also displayed some of the objects we made on our trip to Carymoor such as Willow fences and Anglo-Saxon houses. 

The children have worked really hard and produced some fantastic work! Well done Year 4!

Highbridge Festival


A huge congratulations to both Maple and Rowan Classes who entered the Highbridge Festival Choral Speaking Category.
