Welcome to Year 4!

This term our topic is 'Traders and Invaders'. We will be spending time learning about Vikings, Anglo Saxons and the Scots. 

Thursday 3rd October was National Poetry day! In our groups we all read the poem 'Storm Dragon'. We spent time practising and then filmed it using the iPad's and the green screen! Scan our QR codes to have a listen to our poems! 

In Art we have made pro-types of dragons eyes! Keep you eyes peeled for our next lot of dragon eyes! 

On Monday 23rd September we visited Layer Marney Tower! We had a great day learning about Vikings and Anglo Saxons! 

Over the summer holidays, we all worked hard on creating our own Viking Shield!

Are you getting your 20 minutes of reading a day? 

Why not try one of these :-) 

Happy reading!
