Year 4 – Literacy drama

This week in literacy we have been planning a diary entry about an Anglo-Saxon invasion. The children took on different roles and played the vile, repulsive raiders. They travelled on their long boats across the North sea and finally arrived in Northumbria. When they spotted villages, they began to attack the settlers and destroy their homes. They stole their precious jewellery, cattle and took over their land.

Year 4 – Anglo-Saxon Workshop

On Friday 16th November, Year 4 had an Anglo-Saxon drama workshop. We acted out different events that happened during the Anglo-Saxon period in history. We learnt some new historical vocabulary such as invaders, settlers and raiders.  Also we learnt the names of some Anglo-Saxon God and Goddess. Did you know that the Anglo-Saxon’s believed in more than one god? Our special visitor used the Anglo-Saxon alphabet to predict Mahamed’s and Humayra’s future just like they did during the Anglo-Saxon times. At the end of our workshop, we acted out the famous story Beowulf, who was played by Isaiah and Ubaidullah played the role of the evil monster Grendel.

Year 4 – Estimating and measuring

Year 4 have been estimating and measuring different lengths in mm, cm and m.  On Tuesday, Austen came in to explained how measurement is used for climbing.  We discussed different climbing equipment used to keep people safe and Charlene was even lucky enough to try on a harness.

We estimated the length of different climbing ropes in centimeters and meters. Then we accurately measured them using the appropriate measuring equipment.

Take a look at the photos!

 

CHILDREN CHAMPIONS

The children have voted and this years Pupil Council and UNICEF representatives have been chosen.

Together they will be called ‘Children Champions’ and will carry out a range of tasks. Firstly, they will be looking at changing the academy’s house point system and designing and calculating cost for a KS2 outdoor classroom. Whilst carrying out these jobs the Champions will also be collecting pupil voice and making sure the views of the students of St. Clements Academy are heard.

Article 12: Every child has the right to express their
views, feelings and wishes in all matters
affecting them, and to have their views
considered and taken seriously. This right
applies at all times, for example during
immigration proceedings, housing decisions
or the child’s day-to-day home life.

Well done to you all.

Year 4 – Roman Trip to BMAG

Last week, Year 4 visited the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery to learn about the Romans. We travelled to the museum on the train and walked to the museum.
Inside the museum, we explored the Roman artefacts and discovered ancient coins, pottery and mosaics.
After lunch, we took part in a Roman army workshop. We learnt the Latin names for a soldiers uniform, shield and sword. We also discovered how they become the strongest army of their time.
At the end of the day, we took part in a Roman parade and some of us were lucky enough to dress up as Roman characters.

Year 4 – Science Sound

On Wednesday afternoon, Year 4 investigated how sound travels using a string telephone. We discuss how the sound would travel along the string and made our scientific predictions. We investigated what happened to the sound if the string was taut and not taut.

We discovered that when the string was taut we could hear our partners much louder and clearer, but when the string was not taut we couldn’t hear what they were saying.

 

Peace and Love in Year 4

Welcome to Year 4! During our first week back at school, we have been discussing the fruit of the spirit and how we can show these qualities in our school life. We thought about all the ways we could show love to our friends and families and used these ideas to write a poem about the meaning of love.

Peace has many meanings and we talked about how the word can be used to mean quiet and hush as well as calm and serenity. We then wrote a recipe to achieve peace in our own hearts.

Year 4 – Plastic pollution

Year 4 have been learning about plastic pollution that is destroying our seas and oceans. We researched how plastic is becoming a huge problem all over the world and how it is killing innocent sea creatures. Using out new knowledge we have written newspaper reports to explain the growing problem and how people can help to stop plastic pollution!
