Year 4 - Italy
Welcome to Italy class. We are in Year 4 and our teacher is Miss Wild. Miss Maxam, Mrs Fortescue and Miss Steedman are our Teaching Assistants.
Yesterday we celebrated International Dance Day, this is a global celebration of dance, created by the Dance Committee of the International Theatre Institute, the main partner for the performing arts of UNESCO. The event takes place every year on 29th April, the anniversary of the birth of Jean-Georges Noverre, the creator of modern ballet.
In year 4 we had fun dancing along to some of our favourite tunes following the moves from Just Dance.
We arrived back from our residential trip to Patteson Lodge on Wednesday all feeling very tired but having had a thoroughly enjoyable time trying new things and seeing new places.
On Monday, when we arrived at Aylmerton Outdoor Education Centre we dressed up as pirates and did lots of team activities including the high ropes, den building and crossing the water without getting wet!
A coach took us from AOEC to Patteson Lodge where we were staying and we had an evening talk followed by a twilight safari.
On Tuesday we returned to AOEC and had fun in the woods where we built some hides and tested them to see if they would keep the water out! After a lovely lunch we spent time looking at a local river, the River Gleven from its source to other spots along it's course. In the evening we met some birds, snakes and other animals.
On Wednesday morning we visited two beaches to compare them and see if there are any differences. We looked at signs of coastal erosion and efforts being made to minimise it.
It was a very successful trip and we're all looking forward to our next one!
