In Class 4 we have been looking at Judaism. We read the story of Moses and the 10 commandments. We talked about how the commandments link to our Fruits of Friendship. We learned about the symbols of Judaism and created a colourful Star of David. We even had the chance to practise writing patience, kindness and goodness in Hebrew. Our Menorah candles represent the story of Hanukkah. This is an important festival in Judaism. We hope you love our artwork!

Year 4 have had a brilliant week settling in to a new class routine and writing our class charter.
We are excited to welcome a new member of our class, Sienna!
We have enjoyed learning about Judaism for World Faiths Week and making Menorah candles for our display. Keep your eyes peeled for next weeks post to see how they turned out!
Class 4 had a wonderful (and hot!), experience at Tower of London. Visiting Tower of London was a wonderful link to our Tudor topic; we have been learning lots about Henry V111 and Anne Boleyn, so it was excellent to have first hand experience of places of such historical significance. We viewed Henry’s armory in White Tower, saw where traitors would arrive and also where Anne Boleyn and other Tudor wives were executed. We loved watching a play on the grass, depicting the life and death of Anne Boleyn. It was also truly magical viewing the Crown Jewels.
Class 4, what did you learn when visiting Tower of London?

Well done Class 4 for beginning our ‘Myths and Legends’ unit of work with such enthusiasm and creativity. You clearly understand all features of a myth. The openings and setting descriptions you have written for ‘Theseus and the Minotaur’ are excellent. Well done for using: ambitious similes, adverbs and metaphors.

This week, Class 4 have learnt what it means to be a ‘Living Thing’. They have focused on living things that are near their homes. In particular, they have explored: plants and animals. Mary introduced us to a plant that is in her home, and is native to the dry regions of Texas and Mexico. Mary described the leaves as being ‘strap-shaped’ and ‘leathery’.
Class 4, explain what are the features of living things!
Class 4 loved their ‘Open Air Theatre’ experience in Regents Park watching Peter Pan!
We really enjoyed following the story of a free-spirited and mischievous young boy who can fly and never grows. The staging was extremely creative and imaginative, which helped us to open our minds and really absorb ourselves in the story.
Being outside made the experience magical and mysterious!
