New Blog Post
Welcome to the Year 4 Learning blog :)
Hello there, and welcome from Mr Turner, Miss Horton and the Year 4 team to our learning blog. A chance for us to share all of the fabulous learning opportunties Year 4 have been enjoying. Our topic for term 5 has been a thrilling one, Traders and Raiders, and we have been learning all about the vicious Vikings.
Our topic kickstarted from our resident historian, and Chair of Governors, Mr Taylor, who gave a very informative talk about the Vikings. We were then lucky enough to visit the Museum of Kent Life in Maidstone, to enjoy a Viking themed day. There were a series of workshops throughout the day including: Viking beliefs, Lucet chord making, Viking homelife and a trip to the adventure playground!
To imagine what life would have been like aboard a Viking longship we put our imaginations and acting skills to the test. We re-enacted battle scenes and created the most amazing diary entries full of description and gore! To thank Kent Life, we are currently creating non-fiction books that detail all of the learning about the Vikings that we gathered during our visit. More information on these to follow! :)
Well, we're looking forward to updating you on our learning journey and hope you enjoy finding out about our adventures!
