To celebrate National Poetry Day, Year 4 began the day by sharing our favourite poems, we listened to them and we read them but most of all we enjoyed them! We then went on to write our very own poems consisting of only five lines. Although our poems follow similar patterns, they are all very different! Have a look at some of our poems below to learn a little more about the Grizzly Bears class!
Year 4 have been celebrating Harvest Festival by finding out where our food comes from. We started by learning about the origins of the Harvest Festival and learnt that during this time Christians may collect food, flowers and toiletries and give them to those in need. This is a way of saying thank you to God for all of the food we have. We continued our lesson by learning about where our food might come from, these include: Canada, Greenland, Argentina, Peru, Ecuador, Italy, Russia, Uganda, Australia and India. Here are our labelled maps, our food comes from lots of places around the world!
This half term we are reading 'Demon Dentist' by David Walliams. Find out more about our class novel by reading the prologue...
'Darkness had come to the town. Strange things were happening in the dead of night.
Children would put a tooth under their pillow for the tooth fairy, but in the morning they would wake up to find… a dead slug; a live spider; hundreds of earwigs creeping and crawling beneath their pillow.
Evil was at work. But who or what was behind it…?'
