To start our topic on the Groovy Greeks, we visited the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge to look at their exhibition on the Greeks. We had a group talk with one of the leaders in the museum who knew a lot of information about the Greeks and she helped us to identify what different objects were made of and used for. We were allowed to go round and look at the different pots and statues of different Greek Gods. We identifed how the pots were made and why they were used for different things such as drinking and making wine.
Next, we worked in our groups to handle different Greek items such as pots, wick holders and beauty items for men and women. We had a guess at what they were used for and some of us even guessed correctly! We were very proud!
We ate our lunch together and then we went into our groups again to look at different Greek items. We had a go at sketching some of these and we specifically looked at the details in the items.
On the way back, some of us were really tired, we fell asleep on the bus! We had a fantastic time and we are really looking forward to starting our topic on the Greeks.
We would like to welcome you all to year 4. We are extremely excited for whats to come this year. We will be regularly update this area with work that the children have completed and different activities that they have participated in. If you ever have any quieres please do come and let us know.

Below are some of the activities from 2017-2018
On Monday, Jo Richardson, a dental nurse, delivered an interesting and factual talk to both classes. It was an opportunity for pupils to share their newly acquired knowledge and also learn more by asking an expert.
Jo brought into school information posters, models of teeth and examples of braces. Healthy eating and drinking was also a feature of her workshops. Pupils and staff were amazed at how much 'hidden sugar' were in everyday drinks.
We are very grateful of all the time and effort that was put into preparing for this valuable experience for the children. Thank you.
Everyone now knows how important it is to look after their smile.
In Year Four, we have had a fantastic book week. Our reading areas have all changed and been updated, inspired by lots of ideas from the children. They now look so inviting and inspiring!
In our English, we have written our own non-chronological texts about different cameras. It was very interesting for the children to notice smililarities and differences between different types of camera and their special features.
On Friday we wrote our very own sequal to the Flotsam story. The children were very inventive with their ideas. We have our very own authors onsite at Kingsfield!
Our visit to the library had an added challenge this week, where children completed a quiz. The children learnt about how the library worked by hunting down information. Great fun had by all. (Thanks to Mrs Edgley for her hard work in producing this.)
