Welcome to the Class page for year 4.
Year 4 is taught by Mrs Alison Thorpe
Rocks to Romans
Year 4’s learning journey in Term 1 has taken us way back in time to the Stone Age. We started our journey by experiencing a day on the life of the Stone Age. We created cave paintings, made bread, built shelters and used all our senses to describe the wonderful outdoors.
The children have made some outstanding models of Stonehenge and produced accompanying guide books.
During October we celebrated Black History Month. As part of our learning we took part in an African drumming workshop, considered what our dreams for the future would be, based on Martin Luther King Junior’s ‘I have a dream’ speech and learned a song about the truly inspirational Rosa Parks.
For our ‘Marvellous Middle’ we visited the wonderful Kent Life for a Stone Age day. When we were there we learned survival skills and even met a caveman. The term ended with our class assembly which gave us a great opportunity to show our learning so far. All the children were amazing and participated beautifully.
This term our learning journey is focusing on the Romans.
We started the term with a visit from Jeremy Kimmel, the Education Officer from Tunbridge Wells Museum. We were able to handle artefacts from thousands of years ago and were able to see priceless Roman glass. We are looking forward to a visit from the brilliant History Man at the end of November and are very excited about continuing our journey through the past.
