Year 4 –  Viking History

Year 4 – Viking History

This week in History, Year 4 learned all about the reign of King Ethelred. We found out that he was only 7 years old when he came to the throne in AD 978 and came to be known as ‘The Unready’ because he was believed to be unwise and badly advised. Because he wasn’t a good soldier and Britain was struggling from all the Viking raids, he entered into an official arrangement with the Vikings to pay them Danegeld, which means ‘paying the Dane’. However, the Vikings kept coming back for more and more money and his strategy was widely criticised for being ineffective. We then read a poem by Rudyard Kipling and role-played what happened at the time.


Collective Worship – Year 4

Collective Worship – Year 4

On Friday in Collective Worship, Year 4 meditated with Philippians 2:5-11. We listened to a story about the letters that St. Paul wrote to communities who were experiencing difficult times and how he tried to help them and cheer them up. We learned that St. Paul knew that it isn’t always easy to be friends with everyone and to show real love but that we have to try our best and think about what Jesus would have done in any given situation. We then created pictures to help us remember the scripture and our mission is to be kind and loving to everyone we meet this coming week.

Carma this week 10.03.20

During Crama this week the children have been practicing the different scenes for our Joseph performance. We have nearly learnt all of the songs for the first half of the performance along running through each of the first 5 scenes. Mrs Horne and Mr Patterson are very impressed with all of the children as they are working very hard to learn their parts.
