Year 4 Autumn Planner 2018

World Book Day

We loved dressing up as our favourite characters for World Book Day. It was lovely to share a story with our friends in Reception.

Gorse Hall

We enjoyed our walk around Gorse Hall finding the signs of Spring (even though we got caught in the hail!).

Art

Our Geography topic last term was Madagascar. We linked our art work to this topic, painting our own versions of the Madagascan Sunset Moth. We looked at the work of artist Lucy Arnold and tried to recreate this. First painting the background, before sketching the shape of the moth and using watercolours to paint the wings and body. We added the black patterned detail later.

We also wrote non-chronological reports about the moth in English and some of us were able to word process the complete report!

Design and Technology

We used paper to build structures. We used different techniques to strengthen and connect pieces of paper and let it stand up. Our challenge was to see what the tallest tower would measure, made out of just one piece of paper. It was almost a metre tall!

History

Could we solve the mystery of the empty Saxon grave? Yes, we could! We looked at the items found in the grave and thought about the type of person these might belong to. We used these clues to find out that it was probably the burial site of the Anglo Saxon ‘Bretwalda’ (super king) Raedwald!
