Year 4 letters from india

Roman Pots

We have made Roman inspired face pots out of clay.  We had to follow a set of success criteria in order to make our pots and then evaluate them. 

“We found out lots if information about what Roman clay pots are used for.”

“It was fun, I got really messy!”

“I found it hard to get the shape of my pot but I persevered.”

Gym

In PE we have been creating a sequence of balances, jumps, hops, rolls and some unique movements. “We used the different equipment and it helped improved our balance, posture and made us fitter.” 

This is an ongoing sequence of lessons and we will keep working to improve our sequence adding additional elements.

Using the Chromebooks and Google classroom

“I like it when we get to use the Chromebooks, it helps us to work together and share our work.”

“I can see my work at home and add to it.”

“I didn’t get to use Google classroom in my old school, it it much better as it helps me improve my work.”

Colchester castle trip

In the summer term we are going on a trip to Colchester castle to see some real Roman ruins.  “I’m really looking forward to going to Colchester castle to find out even more interesting facts.”

“It will be really fun to find out about somewhere which is near to where we lived that the Roman invaded.” 

“I can’t wait!”
