1st December year 4

The theme of the week this week has been "Parshat Vayishlach - Being caring". As part of this we have been looking at how to care for one another. In Year 4 we have been drawing pictures to demonstrate the ways we care for one another.  caring

Anglo-Saxon shields

Today we have been creating different designs for Anglo-Saxon shields. The pupils have been doing this in preparation for next week when they will be making their own shield in D&T lessons.IMG 2971

Anglo-Saxon day

Year 4 have had a fantastic day today learning all about Anglo-Saxon life. 

We had an entertaining and informative visit from an Anglo-Saxon who taught the children about everyday life, the story of Beowulf, the foods that were eaten at that time and how a shield wall was formed. All the children had a brilliant day and have learnt some new and interesting facts.

Some of our favourite facts of the day:

Did you know that the Anglo-Saxons turned dirty water into ale? 

Did you know Anglo-Saxons would scream at their enemies in a shield wall?

Did you know that Anglo-Saxons used tweezers and wooden hair combs?
