Year 4 have sequenced their narrative using tempo, dynamics and key signatures. They created a class musical piece to show the intent and moods of different sections of their story volcano. Here’s a short clip of the calm opener to fit their writing! #connectedcurriculum pic.twitter.com/QEXhIikrjw
Year 4 have begun polishing up their narrative on Pompeii. They applied their knowledge of a Roman city to create a gorgeous, positive setting description! We wonder if things will stay this way... #Ks2Writing pic.twitter.com/n1oojU8Daz
Year 4 created a mini game to help them talk about the plot for their narrative on escaping Pompeii - dodging boulders and fleeing to the harbour. They used “when” inputs to create control panels and make explosions and boats interactive! #@hopscotch #Ks2Coding pic.twitter.com/4C5B73YbX7
In Buttercups this week we have been looking at the book Handa’s surprise. The children flew in a helicopter to Kenya and looked at similarities and differences. The children enjoyed tasting the different fruits from the book 🍍🥭 pic.twitter.com/On2MUX1aHp
