Year 4

Drawbridges

To finish off our 1066 topic, Year 4 created their own drawbridge castles just like the Normans did. They made them out of cardboard boxes, string and used a straw to create a working leaver.

Adventure Stories

 

Staff from Land of Oak and Iron visited Year 4 for the final time today. They came with lots of props which linked to the work we had done so far. The children used these to create their characters which they will use in their adventure story. They role played some scenarios from the Sovereign of the Sea and workers in Path Head Water Mill.

Children were given the chance to quiz Rebecca about the Land of Oak and Iron and the develop ideas for the different settings their stories might take place in. We have really enjoyed working with Groundwork on this project.

Pentecost Parade!

On Monday afternoon, the whole school took part in a special liturgy to celebrate the Feast of Pentecost. Everyone assembled in the hall  to hear the story of Pentecost and to think about the Fruits of the Holy Spirit (Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Generosity, Gentleness, Faithfulness and Self-control) and how we use those gifts for the good of others. After that the children processed out to the field waving or wearing their flames and streamers which they had made in class to represent the power of the Holy Spirit. The liturgy continued outside with prayer and ended with a hymn.
