Visiting Author – Jack Trelawney

Jack Trelawney- Author Visit

On Monday 19th June, Key Stage 2 had a visit from Jack Trelawney- a published author. Jack spoke to the children about how he gets his ideas for his stories. Explaining that he mostly writes about things he knows about. He also likes using pictures to get his ideas. He read a few chapters of his story ‘The Crystal Pool’ which the children enjoyed.

After the assembly, the children followed up his visit in different ways. Year 6 did some drama which focussed on the made up creatures he spoke about and Year 4 wrote stories which included a creature they had made up themselves. The visit certainly inspired the children to write and be creative with their ideas.

 

Year 4 Ignite – The Saxons

Year 4 IGNITE

On Monday we had our Year4 Ignite – Can you guess what we are dressed up as?

A Saxon came in to teach us about life in Saxon times. We learnt lots about the weapons and armour. Did you know that it could take a year to make a sword?

Saxons were great story teller; he told us the amazing story of Beowulf.

The Saxons spoke in Old English. We had a lesson in Old English and were very good at translating Old English to Modern English- we got to level 3!

During the afternoon we learnt about Alfred the Great and the Battle of Hastings.

It was a fantastic day and we all learnt a lot.

Year 4 – Discovering angles

Today, we have been looking at different types of angles in our playground. We saw right angles, obtuse angles and acute angles. A right angle is when 2 straight lines meet at 90°. We used the corner of our books to check if an angle was a right angle or not. An acute is less than 90°. An obtuse angle is more than 90° but less 180°.

Can you spot the different angles in our pictures? We found lots!
