During the preparation of our Ancient Greek feast, we had the chance to develop our personal skills by independently using knives to cut vegetables into fine chunks. We also measured and mixed ingredients to make bread by ourselves. Making the hummus was easier than we thought and we made it super tasty.
In this session, we learned the success tips for completing our best long jump. We found out about bending our knees and swinging our arms. These little tips helped us to go away in our coaching partner groups to perform, compete and beat our personal best and against our partner.
After 5 weeks of coaching, Y4 were able to independently set up a small game of cricket which involved all players having a role and practising their bowling, catching and batting skills.
After our group work outside on 4 figure grid references we applied our knowledge to reading 6 figure grid references on a map of our local area.
To begin our learning on Ancient Greece, we played the role of a detective. We were given various different photos of pots from the ancient days and we had to use our observation skills to spot clues about how the Ancient Greeks lived their life, what they did for hobbies and jobs and what they wore.
This week we learnt all about rocks.
There are three types of rocks that we know: metamorphic, igneous and sedimentary.
in the lesson, we were given different samples of rocks. We had to identify the rock based upon its properties. Once we knew which rock type it was, we then investigated the most durable and most permeable. We recorded our findings and judged if our hypothesis were correct.
