Welcome to Year 4 and Team Citron
Your teacher is Miss Palmer

We have had a great week of art! We started off looking at the ceramic artist, Clarice Cliff. We then went on to sketch our own story vases, in the style of the ancient Greeks. We made them out of clay and painted them, and displayed them in our classroom museum!
This week in English, we have been looking at riddles. We really enjoyed exploring riddles at the start of the week, and ended with writing our own. It was great fun! Next week, we will be using our debating skills, and learning to write a discussion text in the form of a letter.
This week in Maths, we have been looking at analysing and presenting data. We made our own tally charts and bar charts to show the different colours of smarties we had. There were non left at the end!
Summer Optional Home Learning Task
The Ancient Greeks
Date due – 15th July 2022
During the summer term, Year 4's history topic will be the Ancient Greeks. To support your child's learning and understanding, we would like to invite you to take part in a home learning project. Here are some ideas you could do.
- Create a leaflet for people visiting Greece including important information. Where is it? What is the weather like? What is the currency like? What is the language?
- Find out about the clothes the Ancient Greeks wore. You could draw and label a picture showing a typical Ancient Greek outfit, or create one which you could wear!
- Make a Spartan helmet or design a shield.
- Create a Greek temple, like the Parthenon, using a range of materials.
- Make a travel brochure about Ancient Greece Where would you travel to? Where would you stay? What could you do while you were there? Who would you recommend to visit? Use pictures with lots of facts and information.
- Design your own Labyrinth. It could be made of straws, string or wood.
- Research Greek food. How it is different to traditional English food? You could recreate your own Greek dish, and write a recipe for others to follow.
- Create a fact file or poster about a Greek God. Make sure your poster is eye-catching and full of facts and information.
- Turn a myth into a cartoon, for example, Theseus and the Minotaur. Use lots of speech bubbles.
We had some amazing home learning entries last term, exploring Ancient Egypt and are looking forward to seeing what you do this term!
