Russet - Year 4

Welcome to Russet


This term in Year 4 our topic is 'The Egyptians!'. There are so many different and interesting things to learn about the Ancient Egyptians. Feel free to research any areas that really interest you as the term progresses. 

Remember, we have P.E every Monday and Thursday, please make sure you have a P.E kit including trainers for outdoor P.E too (especially now we are in the Summer Terms and have an enormous enclosed field to use).

Thanks, Mrs Harmer

When 40ml of methylated spirit was added to the large jar and shaken there was only 25ml of liquid left when poured out. We thought that some had changed from liquid to gas - look what happened when a burning splint was lowered in. We then had some evidence of a chemical reaction (using 4 of our senses)...

In one of our Topic lessons this term, we learnt about the story of Boudicca and The British Resistance. As part of our lesson we acted out parts of the story in freeze frames. We had to think about the main characters and what they were doing at different points in the story. Take a look at our freeze frame photos below...
