As you are aware year 4 have been on a visit to Butser Ancent Farm. We have really learnt how cosy it could be in a roundhouse with the fire to warm you; 4A certainly learnt what it was like hundeds of years ago when it got wet and muddy! The children were given a real hands on experience of the kinds of methods that people had to use hundreds of years ago to make everything they need. We really appreciated how much work it must have been in those times to provide all the things that they needed! You’ll see lots of things that we got up to by looking at the photos below!

We hope that this gives you lots of inspiration for your home learning!
Year 4 Team
Year 4 were really lucky today to have a visitor from the Rocksteady Music School. During the workshop we were able to try out different instruments that were in a rock band. You will see from the photos below that we all had a really good time and even learnt to clap the beat!
This is as well as the Clarinet lessons that we are having each week! Our clarinet lessons will culminate in a performance at the end of term!
Next half term we will be starting our new topic based on the Saxon settlement into Britain. To kick off this topic in an inspiring way we have organised two exciting events for the children.
In the first week of the new half term we will be visting Butser Ancient Farm where the children will be able to explore Saxon buildings and gain an insight into the Saxon way of life. In the second week we will be having a special Saxon visitor who will introduce children to Saxon story telling and other aspects of Saxon culture.
