In Year 4, children have been using their artistic skills to create a painting of Mount Vesuvius erupting. They did this over two lessons as they created a dull background using different shades of grey then created a bright explosion over the top of it.
In literacy, children have been recounting what happened to Mount Vesuvius in 79AD by using the past tense accurately, interesting and appropriate verbs and appropriate conjunctions to link and extend sentences.
In maths, children have been ordering and comparing decimals as well as rounding them to the nearest whole number.
Year 4 thoroughly enjoyed their Roman day. Children dressed up ready for daily life, gladiator fights and wars. They analysed many artefacts including some which were real and excavated in England. The children have really enjoyed their Roman topic and are looking forward to finishing it off by learning about Pompeii after the Easter holidays.
This week the children visited Grimm and Co. where we had a magical morning of story writing. Year 4 worked with several volunteers to bring their story ideas to life and even got to work with a talented illustrator to create their mythical characters. The children were lucky enough to get a copy of their own published book before going down the exciting Jack and the Beanstalk slide.
In year 4 this week we have been using verbs and adverbs as well as similes to describe the actions of a Roman gladiator. In PE we have been developing our tactical skills in matball as well as different throwing techniques.
We also had a brilliant time on World Book Day where we started to create our own comics. We also showed our love of reading by reading anywhere and everywhere. We're excited to show off our completed comics in next week's blog.

In SPaG we have been learning how to use a possessive apostrophe for singular and plural nouns as well as using more than one noun and nouns that end in an 's'.
