    How World War 1 Started

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Today in history we looked at how World War one started. We discussed how European nations were involved in the cramble for Africa and how two teams called the triple entrente and the Central Powers developed in the lead up to the war. We then discussed the catalyst to the First World War and the assasination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand. The children were very inquisitive. We've made a selection of questions of which we intend to answer by the end of this topic. Well done Year 4!

    Classroom commands - in Spanish

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Today we looked at, and learned classroom commands in Spanish. We said different commands and had a go at following the commands from children acting as the class teacher. The children all enjoyed this and I'm hoping that Silencio will be a regular feature of the classroom!

    Safe searching

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    In Computing today, the children were given the task to search safely on the internet. We spoke about how we do this and what search engines can we use. Also how search engines work and discussed how the most reliable might not be first option. The children were then given 14 questions to answer. We had a range of answers with some questions and all the same anwers on others. The children could then have an opportunity to search things of their own interest linked to our new topic. Well done Year 4

    First World War

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Today Year 4 were introduced to our new topic for this term. We're looking at the First World War. We started today by having two teams try to break each other's defences in a capture the style flag game. Nobody won and it reflected the frustration the soldiers felt in the first world war.

    We had a few children who felt a little quesy this afternoon as we looked at the whole process of digestion, from mouth to ... well let's not go into details on here.

    Discovering information about a country

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Today for Geography, year 4 learnt about how we can learn about different countries by using a range of resources. We discussed Kenya and all the interesting things that we already knew and assessed photgraphs to see what new things we could learn from the photograph. The children came up with brilliant ideas and we learnt loads about Kenya! Well done year 4!
