Welcome to our class page.
Chinese New Year
Today we learnt we all about Chinese New Year and how it is celebrated in China and around the world.
We had a fantastic time using the OS Maps to find local physical features around Redditch. We had some interesting discussions about whether some features had been made by nature or by humans – such as Arrow Valley Lake and the Grand Union Canal. The children really impressed us by using 4-figure grid references to locate these features on a map.
Volcanoes Around the World
Thanks to everyone who did research and found out the locations of volcanoes from around the world. Some people found lots and lots and we enjoyed finding their locations on our class map. Well done everyone!
We have created a new Bookflix display in our reading corner. The children and teachers have suggested good books to read in year 4 and lots of children have chosen books to read from our display. We are encouraging the children to think more widely about their reading choices and also think about challenging themselves with more difficult books to read.
Welcome back to school and we hope you had a great half term. We will now be studying volcanoes and earthquakes, rocks and soils as part of our Disasters Unit of work. Please feel free to research, read around and talk about these topics with your children. They will each be taking home a knowledge organiser to learn around the topic.
Egyptians Trip to Birmingham Museum
We had a fantastic day out at the museum where we learnt all about the Ancient Egyptians. We learnt about daily life, the gods, and even got to see a real mummy! The children thoroughly enjoyed their visit and came back with loads of knowledge and ideas to share in their history lessons.
We hope that you have all had a wonderful summer and we look forward to seeing you on Wednesday 3rd September.
