Summer 1 2017
Hello from Mr Hampson, Miss Singleton and Miss Hatton,
We have been so busy this term and have lots of exciting things to tell you about. Before Easter we were looking at Leif Erikson and basing all of our topic work around Viking history and adventures. We worked as a class to complete a variety of missions which challenged our mental, physical and team working skills. It’s been fantastic! Some of the highlights included constructing our own Viking Long-ships, writing our own myths about Norse gods like Thor and Loki, mapping our own Viking settlements and learning about Viking battles and weapons. Now that we’re in the summer term we’re looking at a new adventurer: writer and explorer Kira Salak.
Last term also included Science Week which was a fantastic opportunity for children and staff in Year 4 to try science based activities we had never done before. From handling tarantulas, to making realistic (and disgusting!) models of the digestive system, every member of our class put in a fantastic effort and demonstrated a huge array of skills and knowledge. It was a lot of fun!
We’re also pleased to inform you that the class has made excellent progress in swimming and have been enjoying some free play sessions as a result – let’s keep up the good work all the way through to the summer holidays now.
If you have anything you would like to mention or talk to us about, please do come and see Miss Singleton, Miss Hatton or myself at the door at home time.
