Year 4 newsletter

 What a week...!  Year 4 have been busy learning about ‘Women in History’ as our history week focus.  We focused on Anne Frank and Amelia Earhart in particular as well as Mary Anning and Marie Curie.

To start the week, we ordered the events surrounding Anne Frank in a timeline with real photographs to match - from this, we learnt of Anne’s tragic fate. We then looked at extracts of her diary and wrote our own to describe the secret annexe in which she hid for 2 years.  Finally, we made our own Anne Frank inspired artwork for our display. 

This week, we were also visited by ‘Retune’ who provided a workshop about mental health and suggested how we can look after our mental health with different activities such as listening to music, being outside in nature, exercising, painting or drawing and being with friends.  With Tom, we wrote our own song to prove it could be a 5 minute activity! 

Our busy week was topped off on Friday afternoon when we completed the daily mile as a year group. It was great fun to be outside in the sunshine and jogging (sprinting!) laps of the field.
