Bloomsbury news reports - Home learning
After writing our news reports on the findings in a Bloomsbury town house, the children of year 4 have performed and recorded them. Here are some examples of what they achieved.
Character descriptions - Home learning
The children completed a role on the wall for the character of Lil by carefully considering what they knew about her from the first chapter. They used this information to write a detailed character description.

Term 1 and 2 Inventors and Inventions
Over the course of the last two terms, we have thoroughly enjoyed our topic; Inventors and Inventions.
We started the year by researching some of the most well-known inventions that have changed the world and created a timeline to show our findings.
We then looked in detail at Thomas Edison and his invention of the lightbulb. We spent time in topic lessons researching all about him and then put our information into a biography. Check out some of them below!
As part of our home-learning, we set the children the task of researching another inventor of their choice. Lily chose to research William Kellogg- check our her PowerPoint.William Kellogg
In English, we have based our writing on the story 'The Invention of Hugo Cabret.'
We spent some time exploring the characters and then re-wrote a part of the story.
