This week, in Year 4, the children learnt about Buddhism as part of their Other Faith Week. First, they used iPads to research the main beliefs of this ancient religion and commented on the similarities between Buddhism and Christianity. Then they watched video clips about Lumbini in Nepal, one of the most visited Buddhist Pilgrimage places in the world that became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1997. During the week, they also looked at Buddhist symbols and made origami Lotus flowers.
In Maths, the children continued their learning of decimal numbers and extended it towards numbers with 2 decimal places whilst also placing these numbers in context when converting between units of measurements.
In English, the class carried on in their unit of ‘The Spider and the Fly’ focusing on sentence structure.
In Science, they completed learning summarizing their understanding of Sound, whilst in PE they began their new unit of dance with a Roman theme. They also enjoyed their first swimming lessons and it has been great to see their confidence in the pool.
In Art, they created still life sketches using pen and pencil, thinking about outline, shadow and texture.
For our next D&T project, please may I ask that you send in a clean 0.5l plastic bottle with lid, labelled with the children’s name. Please send these in, by Monday, 30th January 2023. Thank you in advance for your support with this.
