Home Learning 29/9/17

This week’s home learning is to research you family tree, just as we did with the Tudors this week.  How far can you go back?  Can anyone beat me with 4 generations of Fosters?

Remember, you are expected to have your home reading record signed twice every week.  This can be either be based on your Guided Reading text or a book of your own choice and could involve reading the text, summarising the main events from your book so far or discussing an element that you find particularly interesting or didn’t quite understand with someone else.  Remember to note down any vocabulary which you found challenging or inspiring in your Reading Record so you can try and use it in your writing next week.

Mathletics has activities based on the addition and subtraction of whole numbers which we have been learning about in our maths lesson.  Use your personal log in details to help extend your learning further.

Next week, we will be looking at multiplication.  Which times table are you currently working on?  What strategies are you using to share with the rest of your class?

The Trial of Anne Boleyn

In Topic this week, 4R have been learning all about the marriage of Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII.

In pairs, the children read through extracts of ‘My Royal Story – Anne Boleyn’ and highlighted evidence that proved her either guilty or not guilty. After making their decisions, the children created open questions to ask Anne at her trial.

We then put Anne (Megan) on trial for treason and she answered the questions of her Tudor peers! The class were divided about their opinions of Anne Boleyn, which contributed to a lively discussion!

History off the Page!

On Tuesday 19th September, Year 4 spent the day as Tudors!

This included visiting the Apothecary and creating herbal remedies for the ailments, as well as making their own wax candles and soap. They also got to experience writing their names with a quill and creating bookmarks using leather and authentic Tudor tools!

In the afternoon, the children learnt how to prepare for a Tudor Banquet, including learning all about the types of entertainment that would have been performed for King Henry VIII.

Thank you to those parents that helped on the day. All of this fantastic learning will help the children plan and put on their own ‘Banquet for Henry‘ at the end of this term (Wednesday 6th December).
