This term we will be learning all about the way land is used across the West Midlands, but particularly in our local area.
Look at the information below to see what you have to look forward to this Summer Term...
Yesterday Year 4 enjoyed a lovely, sunny walk along the canal towpath from school towards Radford Semele. Aa we walked, we noted the human and physical geographical features of our local area, paying particular attention to the key features of the canal itself, whilst tracking our progress on maps.
Take a look at our photographs below to see some of the things we saw along the way!
Year 4's Canal Boat Trip - 24th May 2021
On Monday, Year 4 enjoyed a trip along the Grand Union Canal (which runs behind the school) in a Narrow Boat owned by Saltisford Canal Trust in Warwick. Although it was a wet morning everyone had a great time and the children were able to experience what it’s like to travel on a narrow boat up to the Radford Locks and back - Check out our pictures below!
Roses and Castles artwork
This half term, we have been learning all about the local canal and life on board a Narrow Boat. We have been fortunate enough to have made a connection online with a local artist, Kay Andrews who lives on a boat and who creates beautiful art work based on the traditional style of roses and castles. Kay has virtually shown the Year 4’s around her Narrow Boat and has provided them with a tutorial so they could undertake their own artwork. This week we have had our first go at experimenting with the style using oil pastels and paints. Have a look at some of our efforts below...
If you would like to have a look at Kay’s beautiful art work, which is for sale, have a look at her website kaysCanalCraftyArts.co.uk or her instagram page @kayscanalcraftyarts
Please make sure that you are continuing to practise your times tables, spellings and are reading books you enjoy as often as you can - daily if possible!
It takes less than five minutes to these activities and will make sure these core skills are fresh in your mind and also books can take you on all sorts of adventures all over the world which is SO important, especially during times like these :)
Below I have posted links to topmarks for times tables practise, added our spelling menu and a link to Penguin's recommended reads for Year 4 aged children so you always have an idea of things you can do to help yourself.
