Welcome to Year 4
We have been bringing Roman myths to life! Working in groups and using our imaginations we dramatised an ordeal that a hero/heroine in a story could face. We then worked towards making a freeze frame of what was about to happen to the hero/heroine. We captured some amusing sights!
In R.E. lessons we have been reading and learning about the stories of Creation, Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and Joseph from the Old Testament. We have learnt lots about how we are made in God’s image and likeness and that we must value and respect this in others. Also how God made promises to Abraham and how he would be the father of a great nation. We dramatised the story of Jacob and discussed the promises God made to him.
As part of our Remembrance Week at school, we wrote an acrostic poem, as a class, to remember those who gave their lives during the World Wars:
Saving people’s lives from the enemies in the war
Others are waiting patiently and hopefully back home
Loved are the ones we remember
Dark and gloomy, but still fighting for peace in our world
Intense atmosphere, but still fighting for glory
Endless praying with an aching heart
Reflect quietly with hopeful thoughts of peace
Still thinking of you in our hearts, don’t give up and please come home.
