Year 4 - Italy
Welcome to Italy class. We are in Year 4 and our teacher is Miss Wild. Mrs Forsdick is our Teaching Assistant.
To finish our Roman topic, we have started to design and make a Roman Chariot. We measured and marked our wood then used a hack saw to cut lengths and constructed the base of our chariot. We used right angled triangles to strengthen the corners and will add an axle, wheels and sides to complete our model.
Welcome back and a Happy New Year. It was lovely to see everyone and great to hear all the exciting stories from the Christmas holidays. We are glad that everyone has come back ready to learn.
We started the new term with an exciting visit from a Samba band who taught us some amazing drumming skills
Italy class took part in a drama workshop with the Lighthouse Theatre Company after watching an excellent production of ‘The Jungle Book’. It was great fun – we loved acting, making five word stories and thinking of actions to go with sentences. We hope you enjoy watching our videos.
This week we became Roman soldiers and Celtic warriors.The Romans organised themselves into legions and practised marching and creating the tortoise formation.There were lots of Latin commands to learn. The Celts decided on a strategy to try and defeat the Romans and then the battle commenced.This was one of the highlights of our Roman topic so far!
