Year 4 have certainly had an impressive first week back at school! 4H and 4D went to Weaver Hall on Monday and 4C on Tuesday. There, we learnt about the Anglo-Saxons and were able to show the leaders just how much we had learnt about them last half term. We took part in dressing up as Anglo-Saxon warriors and learnt about how they were buried with some material goods. We also had the chance to make some clay gods- we loved getting our hands dirty!
This half term, we have been looking at persuasive writing. We have discovered that it is all around us! We have written various texts, such as adverts; but our particular favourite writing task was writing a letter to Mrs Hudson! We were horrified to discover that staff were considering cancelling morning playtime and we wrote 90 passionate letters trying to convince Mrs Hudson to not cancel it. We were extremely relieved that through the use of brilliant persuasive techniques, we were able to persuade Mrs Hudson to keep morning play.
It's been a busy few weeks at BCS! In preparation for Christmas we've created a calendar, written a poem for it, created a pop up Christmas card and created some gorgeous singing penguins pictured above! Thank you for coming to watch is perform at the carol services, we worked hard for so many weeks; it was lovely to see so many family and friends there.
We have decided to not set homework during the festive period; all we ask is that you continue reading and practising times tables!
Have a fantastic Christmas and we will see you all in the new year!

Our Science topic this term is "Animals Including Humans". Over the past few weeks, we've been looking at the digestive system, its organs and their functions. As part of this, we conducted a practical experiment to see how exactly the digestive system works.
