In History, we continued to build on our knowledge of invaders by considering what Anglo-Saxon life was like. We learnt that Anglo-Saxon houses were rectangular huts made of wood with roofs thatched with straw. Anglo-Saxons lived in small villages near rivers, forests and other important resources.



In Geography, we used maps to locate the America's, understanding that they are two of the continents. We used maps and globes to identify places and the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn.  The children researched prominent physical and human features across the America's then did a comparative study on mega-cities. 



In art, we learnt about mosaics and mosaic tile borders. We learnt about tesserae and connected our learning to Roman tiles and their designs. We experimented with repeating patterns, making our own mosaics from paper. We focussed on colours, patterns and themes to support us in designing and making mosaic border designs. 



 Year 4 are now learning the colours in Spanish, using our working wall, shown below, to help us.
