Year 4 Rhinos 2018 - 2019
Mrs Spyrou, Mrs Birnie and Mr Clements would like to welcome you to the Year 4 Class Webpage!
Please check the school Twitter feed for photographs of our current learning.
Both Year 4 classes sent representatives to the Quadkids athletics tournament, held at Riverside Academy and organised by the Harris School Sports Partnership. Ipads make for some blurry photos, but the effort and determination is plain to see.
Ancient Sumer Day
As part of their history project, children enjoyed creating their own pottery and sampling the tastes of Ancient Sumer. (If Ancient Sumer is still a little obscure, you can find out more here.)
Water, water everywhere
Severn Trent delivered an assembly and hands-on workshops to encourage children and their families to save water.
We like to move it, move it:
We're really grateful that Rugby Gymnastics Club is on our doorstep. Regular sessions with great coaches build skills and confidence, year on year. Here's a glimpse into a Year 4 session, bringing together skills from previous weeks.
Can you guess which type of text Year 4 is focusing on this week?

Lunt Roman fort visit:
Braving the cold, Year 4 children took part in workshop activities at Lunt Roman fort, bringing history to life. They should now be able to tell you all about strigils, caltrops and Roman ablutions...as well as marching in time!
Rights and Responsibilities:
Since we've been exploring drama and playscripts in Literacy this week, we built some role-play opportunities into our PSHE focus of Rights and Responsibilities. Do you recognise any of the scenarios from your own lives?
Creating an identity:
We started PSHE this year with a focus on Our Identity, both individually and collectively. Using their own characteristic keywords and symbols, and those of their classmates, Rhinos created identity tags. Can you spot your own? Can you work out who the others belong to?
Newspaper Reports: A Twist in the Tale
So far this term, we've revisited the traditional tale of Little Red Riding Hood, exploring the text through drama and creating newspaper reports of our own versions. Our gallery includes a freeze-frame activity, along with the corridor display of the palace's invitation to the brave woodcutter. Can you identify the characters from the freeze-frame?
