Hi Year 4!
Hope you're all looking forward to a well deserved break. Lock-down has gone quickly but it seems a life time away since we were all back in our year 4 classroom!
Unfortunately I haven't seen anyone 'out and about'recently which is probably due to our horrible weather! However I did sit outside in my back garden on Monday (only for 30 mins) and I burnt my face!Mr Payne said I looked like a Ribena berry! Mmm? I hope not! Think I need to stay inside and eat less cake now!
Only one more week to go after this week, so I want you to start thinking of your own mini project you could complete by the end of next week! I'll post some ideas for you lot towards the end of this week. Take care everyone!
Please keep sending your photographs of what you lot have been up to. I've get some new ones every week but it would be nice to get a few more from the rest of the class! I've copied all of them into our class photo gallery which you will find just above the link for this information page. Have a look when you get chance!
Rosie B has worked incredibly hard making her Viking warrior with cape, longboat and Viking sword! Well done!
Zach has been learning about endangered Barbary macaques at Trentham Monkey Forest! Hope he wasn't 'monkeying' around too much while he was there!
Nell walked along the Roman road at Blackstone Edge on Father’s Day to find the rock where all the family names are carved! What a lovely idea!

This Week’s Music.
Follow the link below to listen to this week’s music.
This week’s music is the 1812 Overture by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky.
It is being performed by an orchestra that arrives in sections!
It starts with a string quartet. Which other instruments can you see?
The piece was written to remember the Battle of Borodino in the Franco-Russian war.
You can hear Russian folk songs squash out the Marseillaise (French national anthem) to represent the French army retreating from the Russian army.
Tchaikovsky did not like this piece! Do you?
