4JB 2017/18

Welcome to 4JB’s class webpage

We have had a great time getting to know each other this week in 4JB.

We have discussed our dreams and aspirations and thought about what we would like to do as a career when we grow up. Have a look at what we might become in the future!

4JB have had a busy first half term full of fun and learning!

To enhance our Viking topic, we visited the British Museum to view a real Viking hoard.

We were also lucky enough to see an interesting version of Beowulf performed at the Unicorn Theatre, to support our study of this book in English. We very much enjoyed acting out the story to get to know it really well.

Well done to everyone who brought in Viking homework. It was amazing to see how much effort was put in and how much you all had learnt! We enjoyed exhibiting our homework and sharing what we produced.

We have had a great first term in 4JB and are all now looking forward to enjoying a well deserved break over the Christmas holiday. Merry Christmas and a happy new to all of you! Here’s some pictures showing what we have been getting up to this half term.

This term we have been taking part in a project with Dulwich picture gallery. We have learnt lots about the amazing paintings and the history of the building and also took part in a brilliant workshop where we mixed our own paints using special pigment.

As part of our World War 2 topic, we visited the Imperial War Museum. We enjoyed code breaking in the ‘secret wars’ exhibition and learning about life in war time through the stories of a family.

We also had a wonderful World War 2 workshop in which we took on the role of evacuee children and got stuck in to some countryside jobs! Can you guess what we are doing?

To brighten up these winter days, we have been learning about the colourful Hindu festival of Holi. We enjoyed getting messy creating our own Holi art by throwing bright powder paint.
