The children in Year 4 asked the big question " How effective was a tersorium as a bottom wiping tool in Roman times?" This is a picture of one group conducting their investigation.
Year 4 were extremely lucky to have a local author - Fran Evans visit them today. We had read some of Fran's s novels before her arrival this week including 'Marsh Pony' and 'When Granny Tells a Story' both of which were illustrated by Fran as well.
Fran gave a talk to the children on how she is motivated and inspired to write about and draw what she sees when on walks etc. Quite often animal related. Pupils had the opportunity to question Fran on her career which they found inspiring. Fran then showed the children how to skilfully use charcoal to sketch drawings of animals, which the children had a go at doing themselves. Finally, as we have been reading Alice in Wonderland in school - she demonstrated to the children how to draw the white rabbit, step by step. Both Year 4 classes produced some excellent versions of the rabbit themselves which have been displayed in school.
Please look at the slideshow of images above from our morning with Fran.
Year 4 have been enjoying their Outdoor Learning in both Maths and Science. They have been forming numbers using natural materials and collecting litter from the school field as part of 'Our Sustainable World' investigation.
