Year 4 newsletter

They say that all roads lead to London. In the case of Year 4, all lessons lead to London (well almost) as we continue to discover new information that leads to our Big Discussion statement “London is a great place to live!” We have been immersed in a rainy, London evening when we had the opportunity to interview “Jack”, a homeless teenager living on the streets. Using our map skills, we have navigated round London and understood, what commuting is like when tube lines are closed. We have also inferred much about Stratford and how it evolved in preparation for the 2012 Olympics. Some us were shocked that whole roads could be destroyed as part of compulsory purchase schemes but could understand the benefit in so doing. In Science, we have been closely examining leaves as they fall from trees, understanding the key features that lead to identification. Nevertheless, without a shadow of a doubt, the highlight of the past two weeks has been the Birchwood Games. The children were thrilled to take part in a huge variety of activities.
