Just look at the exciting learning that has been going on in year 4
We have already started to have lots of fun and learn new things in year 4, including maths investigations, Talk For Writing activities, singing along with ABBA to appraise their music! Have a look below to see what we have been up to!
Place Value investigations in Maths using dice!
Music - Accompanying the song Mama Mia by tapping out the rhythm.
Talk For Writing - Acting out the text
Science - The children have been sorting items and classifying them into those which use the mains, batteries or none of these and recorded their findings in a VENN diagram.
Year 4 have been learning about the democratic system in Ancient Greece and how it has impacted how we view democracy today. They had a taste of what life was like by becoming a person from Ancient Greece and discovering whether they could or couldn't vote. There were some very unhappy faces as you can see below!
Remembering Queen Elizabeth II - 'A Day to Remember!'
On Friday 16th September, to commemorate the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Glenmere children took part in activities to allow them to celebrate her life. Year 4 learnt about the history of the Queen and completed a timeline to demonstrate their learning. They wrote wonderful letters of condolence to the Royal Family, which showed how empathetic and caring they are, then performed two minutes of silent refection while completing some Queen Themed mindfulness colouring. Finally, the children planted mint seeds to show how memories can be captured and grown; mint specifically because of how our sense of smell can trigger memories, and also to signify 'new beginnings.' There is a new King and, along with our seeds, we will watch him grow into his role and support him in his endeavours to be the best King he can be.
