Five Pillars of Islam

In R.E this week, children analysed the Five Pillars of Islam and discussed their importance to Muslims. Children were fantastic at interpreting what the pillars mean to Muslims and also how the pillars could be compared to the beliefs in Christianity. Well done Year 4 for your thoughtful contributions.

A day in the life of a soldier

In our topic lesson this week, children used drama to represent the different events that might have happened during the day in the life of a Roman soldier. Their scenes were fantastic and included; battles, training, being a look out, playing games and socialising.

Does gas weigh anything?

Children in Year 4 considered this question and made interesting predictions. Afterwards, we conducted an experiment involving balloons and coat hangers to decide if gas had any weight. We needed to be very observant to notice any slight changes, but it was successful! Well done Year 4 for your enthusiasm!

The Romans are back!

Year Four were very lucky to meet some Roman visitors this week, who had travelled to Freemans in a time machine! They enjoyed asking the Empresses many questions about the way the Romans lived before they had to dash back to year 100AD!

Shrove Tuesday

Today Year Four enjoyed learning about Shrove Tuesday and Lent. They had the opportunity to reflect on what they might consider giving up (or giving) during Lent and justify why.

They also had the opportunity to apply many of their skills from the curriculum and made thei very own pancakes, including reading recipes, measuring ingredients and serving them to their peers.
