September 2016 in Year 4

In history year 4 have researched, designed and made some amazing Viking longboats and Viking long houses.  They have paid so much attention to detail and explained why they have used certain materials to represent each feature.

In maths, year 4 have been investigating and finding the twelve different Pentominoes.  Then their challenge was to fit all of them in a particular shape without any gaps, rather like a puzzle.

In English, year 4 really enjoyed writing Haikus and Tankas, counting how many syllables were needed in each line of their poems.  Like in the traditional Japanese Haikus and Tankas, the children wrote about the seasons and later about a chosen animal.
