Today, Year 4 had a circle time on being kind. This worked really well, with everyone saying kind things about other people in the class. By the end of this session, everyone had written something nice about at least one other person and everyone had received something nice about themselves. From this we have made a kindness tree.

This half term, our Science topic is Electricity. For our first lesson, we covered what an atom is and how an electric current is formed. To do this, we pretended to be parts of an atom. We then moved around pretending to be either an electron, neutron or proton.

Throughout the Spring term, we have had a dance teacher teaching us for one of our PE lessons. She helped Year 4 to create a dance that represented the Romans. For our last dance lesson, we showed the dance to Key Stage 2. It was a fantastic dance, well done Year 4!

In Science we will be investigating changing sounds and circuits and conductors.
In our class assembly on Friday 17th March 2017 about the Romans we took our audience back in time to witness Roman roads under construction and a century of marching soldiers. We also transported them to a grand villa full of wealthy Romans preparing for a visit from the Emperor Claudius with his elephant and his wife!
