Year 4 newsletter

We can’t believe that it has only been a week since half term as we have packed in so much! One of our highlights was discovering that maybe Alfred the Great was not so great after all... According to his Anglo Saxon law book,  he considered theft from church a greater crime than murdering a pregnant lady! As for trial by ordeal... Little wonder that we all wanted to recast our votes. We have also begun our new science topic of rocks by investigating and recording the properties of rocks. Who knew that chalk would dissolve in water or that slate was useless for carving? We had a lot of fun sketching rocks though and paying close attention to detail. On Thursday, 25 children from Year 4 went to a rugby festival at the Bishop’s Stortford Rugby Club organised by Saracens and Birchwood High School. The children enjoyed their friendly games and were excellent ambassadors for the school in terms of behaviour. Well done them!
