We have a strong focus on developing children's reading skills. Here is a collection of texts (it tells you what stage it is) in case you wanted extra practise on reading and answering questions based on a text. It follows the VIPERS style of questions that we do in school! Keep reading :)

Beware, there is a Viking at Capel School!

Project gallery - Vicious Vikings!

Class 4 have been busy learning all about Vikings this term. We explored the legend of Beowulf and wrote a recount. In addition, we also discovered facts and information about the Viking Longships, which we then used in writing a non-chronological report. To further extend the topic, we wrote a Norse myth and then created our own Kennings! Have fun reading some of our WOW work! :)

In Science, we really enjoyed  investigating the busy world inside our bodies! The children identified the organs that are part of the digestive system, labelled them and explained their simple functions using scientific vocabulary. They did enquiry to find out the role of teeth (chewing) in digestion. They also did an experiment to see what happens to the food item when it reaches the stomach and where the absorption of nutrients happens. Children then extended their learning further by creating a 3D model of the digestive system using clay! 

We have been learning poetry in class 4. Children read 'The Sound Collector' by Roger McGough, and created their own verses following the structure of this poem. Here is a performance of our class poem!

The Sound Collector Came to Capel!

Anglo-Saxon Song by Year 4!

Project Gallery- Anglo-Saxons!

Class 4 have worked hard and discovered a lot about Anglo-Saxon times. They took their learning beyond the classroom by researching information at home and producing creative homework for the topic. Well done Year 4!

Celebrating Black History

We read the book 'The Patchwork Path: A Quilt Map to Freedom' by Bettye Stroud. Children then discussed what does 'freedom' means to them. They then created a freedom quilt by working collaboratively.

Author Visit- David Fuller, a real-life author!

The children were happy to receive their signed copies of the books from the author himself :)

Investigating Pitch- how and why pitch changes?

 

Exploring Negative Integers!

In Literacy, we are exploring adventure stories!

Class 4 enjoyed looking at the illustrations from this wordless picture book called 'Quest' by Aaron Becker and then they narrated the adventure story using their own powerful story language! 

Smashing Saxons!

We are busy discovering all about Anglo-Saxons in year 4. We have researched information about who they were and which country did they come from? Now, we are finding out information about their houses and everyday life!
