Year 4 - Italy
Welcome to Italy class. We are in Year 4 and our teacher is Miss Wild. Mrs Forsdick is our Teaching Assistant.
We were delighted to see Italy class today and have enjoyed hearing all about their summer holidays. Many adventures were had. It is going to be a fun
year with lots of exciting learning taking place in Year 4 and we look forward to sharing it with you in our blog.
Last week some children from Year 3 and Year 4 were chosen to represent Browick Road at the Canary Fives football tournament held at the The Norwich City Community Sports Foundation venue, The Nest, in Horsford. We took part in lots of 5-a-side matches against other schools and although we didn't bring back the trophy we still had a fun day. The children all supported each other with enthusiasm and lots of goals were scored. We even had the opportunity to see the Championship cup won by Norwich City at the end of the season.
One of the jobs of the monks was to copy books. They used illuminated letters to add decorative touches to their work. The word illumination comes from the Latin word illuminare meaning 'light up' The monks used colourful inks to decorate the first letter on the page or paragraph. They also often used gold or silver leaf too.
