Autumn 2 Week 1 - Dragon Lantern Shields

This week in Y4 we have been making our Dragon Shields for the Lantern Parade after the half-term holiday. The colours we have chosen represent our heritage and they will be bright and eye-catching.

The children have worked extremely hard ensuring they are following their design plan and using the cutting and joining techniques that we have learnt previously this term. We are very excited to display them to our community.

Autumn 1 Blog - Week 8

This term Year 4 has had a really exciting time! At the start of the term, a dragon egg was delivered to our classrooms. We were extremely surprised and were not sure how to take care of the precious egg. Therefore, we wrote to the Dragonologist Dr Drake to ask his advice. Before he could reply, a dragon came looking for the egg and completely ransacked the classroom! We were devastated but with the help of the local community, we have managed to stay safe. We do believe that dragons may still be in the local area. Whilst on our way to Darnall library, we searched for possible dragon habitats and during our geography lessons we have identified these areas on a map of Darnall. Next half term we are going to learn how to train a dragon just in case the beastly creature returns!

Autumn 1 Week 7 - Dragon Design

This week in year 4 we have been designing dragon shields for the upcoming lantern parade. The children had to think carefully about what materials they will be using and why. The children had to think about the equipment they will use and the process in which they will make their shield. We are all very much looking forward to the parade.

Autumn 1 Week 3 - Darnall Library Visit

This week Y4 visited the library in Darnall. On our way there, we were identifying a suitable habitat for a dragon, which was very interesting and exciting. When we arrived at the library we made sure we were on our best behaviour and respectful of the members of the public who were also there.

We learnt how to choose a book and borrow using the electronic system. We were lucky enough to have one of the lovely librarian’s read a book to us. We all had such a great time!

Autumn 1 Week 2 - Dragonology

This week in Y4 there was a ferocious dragon who came to school in search of a dragon’s egg. The dragon escaped empty handed but in the process managed to cause havoc amongst the terrified children and ransacked the classrooms. The children have produced some wonderful informal letters telling their friends all about the crazy incident.
