We are looking forward to another fun-filled and challenging half term. The theme for Autumn 2 is ‘Values and Perceptions’ with our focus question being: ‘Can I understand how our values affect the way we live?’
In Year 4, we have been exploring life in Roman Britain. We made some bread using a transitional Roman recipe. It was delicious!
Here are a few photographs showing the finished products.
We found out that the Romans built their own aqueducts when they lived in Britain. They used them to transport water from different places. After looking at a few of their designs, we created our own aqueducts using cardboard, plastic bottles and other containers. We had to consider how the water would travel along them as well as ensuring they were waterproof! Here are our finished products.
Dear Parents/ Carers,
4NM have been learning about how the UK has had an impact on the rest of the world through its
inventions. We have explored British inventors and written newspaper articles about their successes as well as designing and creating inventions of our own.
We would love you to come and explore our work and see our invention prototypes in 4NM’s
classroom from 2:30 to 3:15pm on Wednesday 23rd May 2018.
Miss Maddern and all the children of 4NM

Last half term there was a mysterious crash landing in the Enchanted Forest. After filing a police report and using their detective skills, the children concluded an alien had landed on our planet. This alien turned out to be Beegu. The children loved her book about her adventure on Earth and wrote book reviews based on the story. 4LD found Beegu's story so powerful they decided to write pledges based on the big ideas in the story. 4NM also wrote some reviews and pledges. Photographs of these reviews and pledges can be seen below:
Happy New Year to you all! We hope you have had a restful and enjoyable holiday with your children.
We are excited to start our new topic this half term: Social Justice.

We have been exploring myths from Ancient Greek times. We focused on the Labours of Hercules/ Heracles and created a thirteenth labour for Hercules/ Heracles to tackle. We included a wide range of exciting vocabulary and fronted adverbial phrases to give as much detail as possible to the reader. Here are some of our extracts!
