Our Day out to Walton on the Naze
On Wednesday 27th March, Year Four travelled to Walton. We studied coastal erosion, we compared different stretches of coast and we found out about how humans make an impact on the coastline. We also learnt about how rocks and soils are formed, and how many millions of years it has taken for the cliffs at Walton to form. We were amazed to discover how far the cliffs have been eroded away since the Second World War.
After lunch, we all had a lovely time hunting for fossils.
Printing topic book covers
We have been very busy, designing and creating tile printings. We designed our polystyrene tiles based on Greek pottery designs. We used metallic paints to create a repeating pattern. We wanted to achieve printing which looked as if it were from Ancient Greek times. We will use our prints to cover our topic books.
A visit from an Ancient Greek...
October 12th 2018 will be remembered as a very exciting day for Year Four! It was the day we had a visit from an ancient Greek! We learnt about games the ancient Greeks played, and mathematical puzzles they liked to solve. We completed a quiz all about life in ancient Greek times. We also learnt so much about how the Greeks fought their battles, and all about Alexander the Great: a fearless warrior who united the city states into one country. We finished the day with a mini Olympic Games.
We learnt so much about Ancient Greece and are getting closer to being able to answer our research question: What did the Greeks do for us?
