Doves

Over the course of this year, Doves class will engage in a variety of different learning experiences through our topics.

Term 1- I am Warrior!

I am Warrior! I am strong, brave and powerful. Meet me in battle. Draw your sword, wield your axe and challenge me if you dare! Invade and attack, Romans versus the Celts, the fight is on…

Discover warring Britain: meet Claudius, Boudicca and Julius Caesar, and find out what the Romans did for us. Get ready for gladiator school and learn alongside Spartacus and Siculus: brave fighters of the Roman Colosseum. When all that battling makes you hungry, relax, lie back and feast yourself on dormice and grapes, or perhaps a roasted swan sprinkled with nuts?

 

 Term 2- Bottoms, Burps and Bile

Open wide- let’s take a look inside! We’re on a voyage of discovery to investigate the bust world inside your body!

Do you have a toothy grin or a winning smile? Take dental impressions and test the effects of sugary substances on your pearly whites! Follow a tasty morsel as it makes its way through your digestive system, helped by some mouth-watering saliva! Mmm! And don’t forget the importance of good hygiene- at both ends!

 

 Term 3- Blue Abyss

 Grab your wetsuit! We’re going deep into an underwater world of incredible coral and mysterious sea creatures.

 Head to your local aquarium and learn about life in the ocean. Travel by submarine to the deepest, darkest places on Earth. What are those bright lights in the distance? It’s a group of bioluminescent sea creatures!

 Flippers on? Snorkel ready? Let’s head into the Blue Abyss…

 

Term 4- Road Trip USA!

 Buckle up, sunglasses on- we’re going on a road trip across the good old US of A!

 Flying from London Gatwick, and landing at JFK airport, New York, it’s time to explore the sights and sounds of the Big Apple. Use your map skills to navigate your way around some of its most famous landmarks and send a postcard to home asking the question ‘Do you wish you were here?’

Meet the Iroquois tribe; Native Americans with amazing customs and traditions. Then, plan a bespoke trip for Mr Smith and his family of four who want to spend three weeks in the sun. it’s going to be a long ride, put the roof down and let the wind blow through your hair- we’re off!

 

 Term 5- Potions

 Potion: a poison, a mixture, an aromatic brew, a vapour, a liquid or sticky good. Welcome to the amazing world of potions and their properties…

 Now scientists, beware! There are some powerful and deadly potions out there- dangerous and unpredictable or plain tragic (just ask Romeo and Juliet!) Use what you know about materials and their properties to create incredible potions in Professor Hazard’s potions class. Feeling sleepy? Hmmm… that orange juice did taste a little strange…

 

 Term 6- Traders and Raiders

 Big and strong, powerful and brave, the Saxons wave their battle axes and brandish their swords as they begin to invade Britain’s shores.

 Sail back to the Dark Ages, where battles were rife and fear reigned. Find out about the lift of the Saxons, including how they lived and where they came from. Meet the bloodthirsty Vikings from Scandinavia-never before had such terror swept the land.

 Are you ready to shine a light on the dangerous and deadly Dark Ages?

RE afternoon.

Today we were learning about Churches and how they can differ within the same religious denomination.

We looked at images of Anglican, Roman Catholic, Methodist and Baptist churches and chose one as a stimulus for our construction work. We used Lego to create the church interiors ensuring we were including as many of the features as possible.

Please see the photos below of our efforts:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Roman Day

We had an amazing time taking part in Roman Day!

It was great fun dressing up as Romans, being given a Roman name for the day and taking part in a number of activities including:

- Writing on tablets with ink.

- Learning about the Gods to create a set of Top Trump cards.

- Being put to the test, training to become a Roman gladiator.

- Making Roman catapults using lolly sticks and elastic bands.

- Taking part in a catapult competition to lauch a marshmallow the furthest distance.

 

VR fun in RE

Year 4 had a fab afternoon with our visitor from Ark Computing where we were lucky enough to get the opportunity to use the virtual reality headsets to go on a tour visiting awe inspiring religious buildings worldwide. We visited Lincoln, Barcelona, London, Berlin and France. With the 360˚ technology, it actually felt like we were there! 

Welcome to Year 4!

Hello and a warm welcome to Year 4!

This year in Doves class will be Miss Dobbs, Mrs Tidswell and Miss Everett. We have an action-packed year planned with a number of interesting and exciting activities and we are sure that the children will have a super year.

A week in and already the children have settled in well to life in Year 4. In Maths we have been busy identifying the place value of numbers using the Base 10 equipment as well as writing numbers in words and rounding them to the nearest 10. In English we have been learning about Myths and Legends and have been looking specifically about the story of how Rome was founded. In our foundation subjects the children have taken part in a number of activities including sketching Roman coins, creating maps to show where Christian Communities can be found worldwide as well as creating wanted posters to research Boudicca.

The children thoroughly enjoyed their Outdoor Learning last week and loved using natural materials to create maps to show the rise of the Roman Empire (see photos below)

A quick reminder:

Our Outdoor PE day is Tuesday so please ensure that your child’s kit is in school on this day. Homework will be set on a Friday to be handed in by the following Wednesday and Spellings will be set Friday for a test on the following Friday. Outdoor learning will continue for the remainder of this term so please ensure that warm, suitable outdoor clothing is brought in on a Friday.

Many thanks

Kind regards

Miss Dobbs
