Class 9 (Year 4)

Autumn 2 Newsletter

Greek Food

In topic we have been learning about the Ancient Greeks, therefore in D&T today, we made a Greek gyros. We started by chopping and preparing our food, pitta bread, lettuce, humus, tzatziki, cucumber, onion, feta cheese, chicken and olives. Then we went around the tables making it.  We had some surprised children, who enjoyed their Greek gyros.

Geography Week-Messy Maps Tuesday 17th October


Today, year 4 made their way down to Queen's Park as part of our work celebrating Geography week. In the park, the children were tasked with making messy maps. We positioned ourselves down by the lake and drew the relevant things that we could see whilst completing a key alongside the map. Finally, we collected some data by recording the sounds that we could here from a few different locations within the park. 

Ancient Greece Workshop- Monday 18th September


Today, we had an Ancient Greece workshop in school. We learned all about Sparta and Athens and the different way that their societies were run. Some children were called upon to act out the mythical story of Theseus and the Minotaur. We completed some mathematical puzzles which stem from Ancient Greece and the children went on a hunt for clues so that they could complete a questionnaire all about the civilisation. In the afternoon, the children were treated to a fully armoured solider and some were even given the opportunity to try some of the armour on. Finally, the children competed in a mini Olympic Games. where they tried to compete as the Ancient Greeks did.
