End of term performance
All of the children at Gascoigne School took part in an end of term performance which showed Christmas around the world. Year 4 looked at USA and performed songs and poems from this country.
This term in Year 4 we have been learning about Ancient Greece. We read lots of different myths and enjoyed learning about the mythical creatures. We looked at the features of myths and have written myths using our own characters. We have also used drama to help us write recounts.
We have also looked at non-fiction books this term to find out information about Ancient Greece. We have been recapping the key features of writing non– chronological reports such as headings/ sub-headings, paragraphs, technical vocabulary and how to write in the present tense. This information has been used to help us write non-chronological reports.
In our Science lessons we have been learning about sound.
Using different materials, we carried out an investigation to see which was the best for muffling sound.
