    Leave a Comment

    Year 4 enjoyed a forest school session all about Diwali and Rangoli patterns. They started by investigating what Rangoli patterns are used for during the festival and what some of their features are, before foraging for different natural materials. Then they worked in small groups to create their own natural Rangoli patterns.

  7. Anglo Saxon Villages in Year 4

    Leave a Comment

    Year 4 have been learning about Anglo-Saxons this half term. Recently they investigated the different parts of an Anglo-Saxon village and what they were used for. They planned what their village would look like, making sure they included all the parts, before they went out and found some natural materials to use to create their own villages. Can you see the chief’s house, the water source and the livestock in their villages?
