Year 4 have been very busy this week!
On Tuesday morning the boys and girls performed their Harvest Assembly; sharing everything they have been learning about the Harvest and explaining how our food travels around the world. Following this, they completed their first Technology and Design activity; baking scones and discussing where each food item might have come from. They wrote about the ingredients we used and created their own set of instructions for making scones. They tasted delicious!
On Wednesday Year 4 attended a Thames Explorer Workshop. The archaeologist used huge maps of the world to explain how our food and resources travel to us. She then used a map of the course of the river Thames and the children were able to point out the different features of a river’s journey, such as the mouth, source and meanders. It was interesting to find out how the shape of the river changes from thin to thicker as it flows towards the sea. The archaeologist also taught us about the history of the Thames, explaining how it has changed throughout as people adapted it to suit their needs. For example, building concrete walls and bridges. The children learnt a lot from this workshop; showcased in their interesting recount reports.
On Thursday Year 4 ventured off to the threatre to watch ‘The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe’ and the children were very impressed! The show was fantastic, bringing the story to life in a magical way. After half-term we will be asking the children to explore the links between this story and Jesus’ resurrection.
This was a busy week but one to remember!
