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!

Tick Tock!

Year Four had a super DT day today creating working analogue clocks. We learnt how clocks work before using abstract art to design and create our own. A great effort from all of Year Four!

Stained Glass Windows

Children thought about the question ‘Why is Jesus inspirational?’ and designed a stained glass window to express their ideas. They look great on our windows!
