I am Warrior

A predominantly historical based project

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 Spiculus: brave soldiers 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?

Year 4 Spring Term 2

Potions

A predominantly science based project.

Potion: a poison, a mixture, an aromatic brew, a vapour, a liquid or a sticky goo.

Welcome to the amazing magical world of potions and their properties…

Now scientists, beware! There are some powerful and deadly potions out there – dangerous, unpredictable or plain tragic (just ask Romeo and Juliet).

Use what you know about material and their properties to create incredible potions in Professor Hazard’s Potions Class.

 

What a lovely surprise on our first day back – eggs and batter mix for each and every child – all generously donated by our local Morrisons.

We all enjoyed making pancakes on Shrove Tuesday and enjoyed tasting them even more.

We simply cannot become witches and wizards without making a wand first.

Describing a scene to a partner using a vocabulary mat.

Learning theatre skills in SFA for the Shakespeare Festival in June.

Line drawing – potion bottles.

 Potion creation in 4M

Practicing hard for The Big Spell – children will be victorious.

Learning how to play the electric guitar in 4J.

Easter rabbits made by everyone in 4J.

We’ve watched our frog spawn turn into tadpoles. – Life cycles at first hand.

Linking to our project on ‘Potions’ we have been developing our art skills in using charcoal.  

It was much more tricky than we thought.

We thoroughly enjoyed Science Week and the challenges and quizzes that were up around school.

Making our Mother’s Day Cards.  We tried really hard.

Practical science in 4J – helicopters and air resistance.

More science work in 4O – using solids and liquids to create gases.

Everything worked so much better with our magic wands as well.

More potion bottles – this time using pencil and trying hard to apply fine detail.

Using the data logger to measure light, sound and temperature.

Learning about evaporation using puddles.

Red nose day fun in school.  We raised around £350.

Using books and the internet for our research project.

Is it a solid or a liquid?

Let’s find out…

Mrs McVeigh had so many entries for the Big Question Quiz during science week.

Does our height make a difference to how high we can jump?  Let’s test it out.

Paired reading as part of SFA.  Teamwork is key to success.


More science work during Science Week.


Working with Sustrans to develop of cycling skills.
