YEAR 4 MEET THE TALLEST BASKETBALL PLAYER IN THE WORLD AWARDED THE GUINNESS WORLD RECORD IN 2011!!! Year 4 had fun learning some ball skills! 

Year 4 interviewed a real Roman! He's been living in OLM's basement for a week! He was let out today. Year 4 will then write a newspaper article about his appearance at their school. 

Year 4 enjoyed a trip to the Museum of London where they met a Roman trader. He explained what it was like to live in Londinium, the largest city in Britannia and a vital international port.

Year 4 Judaism Workshop

Year 4 experienced a fun and exciting Judaism workshop. They wrote their names in Hebrew, tried on kippurs and learnt about the Jewish Scrolls.

 

 In Year 4, we are reading a book called Varjak Paw. It is about a Mesopotamian Blue (black cat). In order to bring the book to life, we invited two cats to join our English class! With special thanks to the beautiful cats! Year 4 loved every minute of meeting and petting you! 

Year 4 Gymnastics lesson.

Year 4 made a tile mosaic for the school today with expert artist 'David Bowers'. The mosaic is three murals of the school's mission statement which will be displayed in our school above the office. The children (and parents) thoroughly enjoyed making it. Thank you to all involved.

Year 4 touched, tasted and smelt fruit and then created a bank of descriptive words and phrases about them including imagery, alliteration, similes and adjectives. We will use this bank of phrases to help us write a poem about fruit.

Ms Katsi, Ms McCaffrey & Ms Mattassini welcome the new children of Year 4!

 

 It's been a great first week in Year 4! We had fun getting to know the children in a creative manner through the use of parachute games! We are looking forward to exploring our exciting Year 4 Curriculum this year! 

 

Y4K had their first ever class guitar lesson this week. They enjoyed analysing the guitars and the strings, learning about rhythm, pitch and the high E string of the guitar! 

Year 4 were lucky enough to experience a real poet! Neil Zetter visited OLM this week and we had the opportunity to ask him a range of questions. He told us about his life. 

In art, Year 4 are learning about mosaics. We have our own mosaic in our playground. We analysed a mosaic and wrote about in in our art lesson. We will eventually make our own.
