Morning Monarch,

I hope everyone is staying at home and staying safe.

As Miss Dobbins has already said:-

Today I would like you to start writing a daily journal about what you are doing each day. In years to come, children will be learning about these times in their history lessons and you are living through it. As some of you have brought in wartime items that your grandparents have kindly let you borrow, your grandchildren may ask you if they can take their journal into show their class! I would also love to see these when we are able to come back to school.

Parents/carers please check out the following website for some fantastic maths lessons and resources

Hi Monarch,

 I hope you are all well. It was such a shock on Tuesday when we all left and we didn't really get much time to speak. So I will be posting on here daily to keep everyone up to date and connected.

 

I hope you are enjoying your homework pack and managing to go onto Bug Club, Spelling Shed and TTRock Stars daily.

Who has managed to crack the code from the "Letters from the Lighthouse" yet?

In addition  - if you are feeling arty - why not have a go at designing a WW2 medal for a hero soldier?

 

I will update tomorrow  - Keep well and safe.

 

Mrs. Walton ;-)

 

 

 

 

 

Autumn 2 - 2019 

This half term is "The Mayans"

Baking

We have been baking ginger biscuits in Monarch.

We had to use lots of skills, such as melting butter, mixing the ingredients together, spooning the mixture onto the tray. We then were able to eat our biscuits and evaluate them. We had lots of fun and they were delicious.

   Autumn 1  - 2019 

           This half term our topic has been  "The Vikings"

We have been reading "Beowulf"  which the children have enjoyed immensely. The highlight of our topic has been making Viking swords and shields and making Viking brooches. The year 4 children in our class had lots of Viking facts to share with everyone after our residential trip to York.

Our Viking brooches:-

We researched Viking brooches so see why they were important and then we designed and made our own.

                      

  

Our Viking Swords:-

                                                                             

   

 

Our Viking Workshop.

We had an amazing time learning all about the amazing life of Beowulf.

Our York Residential - Year 4

Science Week:-

We experimented with making a "rocket" lift-off.

We used a water bottle, hot and cold water and Alka Seltzer tablets.

The children had to find out what combination would create the correct chemical reaction to lift the rocket off the ground. We had to use co-operation to work together in small groups. We also had to be resilient and keep trying different combinations.

We had lots of fun finding out! 

 

We couldn't catch the "explosion" on camera!
