On Friday 16th June Year 4 visited The Box Moor Trust and learnt how to use maps. They learnt how to use a compass, completed an orienteering course and related features on an aerial photo to the ones on a map. One of the highlights of the day included watching the swallows nesting in the barn.
On Monday 27th March Year 4 had a Tudor themed Design and Technology day. We all dressed up as ships boys and girls like the character in our literacy book - Will's First Battle, which is based on the Spanish Armada. During the day we made Tudor style recipes, designed Tudor ships from wooden blocks, played Tudor games and made Tudor Roses out of felt. We finished our day with a Tudor feast and also played a game in the hall with ship's instructions called Port and Starboard. We really enjoyed our day!
On Friday 18th November we went to Verulamium Museum as part of our history topic on the Romans. We walked first to see the hypocaust and then onto the remains of the London Gate. Afterwards we visited the museum where we were able to handle Roman objects and learn more about the town of Verulamium. The children really enjoyed the trip and we learnt lots!
Year 4 have visited the National Gallery as part of their art work on pointillism. We saw 'The Bathers at Asnieres' by Georges Seurat and then saw some work by Van Gogh. After lunch we had a look around the gallery in small groups. (13.10.16)
