In our art lessons, we have been looking at sculpting and moulding clay to create dragon eyes for our Viking unit. We used our fingers and modelling tools to create effective designs that would capture the scales of a dragon.

4M have had the opportunity to play cricket with the help of a cricket coach. We have been focusing on our batting skills and fielding skills. We have thoroughly enjoyed playing on a Thursday afternoon.

4MB art gallery now open! We have created our final pieces using oil pastels as resistant and ink to create a colourful background. We have worked really hard to create our final pieces in the style of Gustav Klimpt - and what a great job we have done.

We are so lucky to have a sketchbook to record all our findings and artwork. We have been studying the work of Hans Holbein who created portraits of Kings and Queens. We have been focusing on tone, colour and shading. Look at some of the examples of amazing artwork 4MB have created.

As we know King Henry VIII had many wives, but today we debated whether or not he should divorce his first wife, Catherine of Aragon for, Anne Boleyn. We listed the positives and negatives of him doing this and created a conscience alley with our very own Henry VIII. The overall verdict was that Henry VIII was going to stay with Catherine.

We were so lucky that in our woodland learning session we got to make and eat smores! You can see from the pictures that we really enjoyed ourselves. We always remember how to behave and act around the fire to ensure we stay safe.

We have been working really hard in our English lessons. Using the book 'The Journey' we have created our very own diary entries based on 6 different scenes from the book. We also have examples of diaries from the guards, children, the mum and even the house! Writing as authors can be a long process but we have persevered through and even edited and redrafted our work (this is really important as a writer). I wonder if you can spot the features of a diary in the examples below?

Now we have mastered adding with renaming, it is time to tackle subtraction with renaming. Here are some photographs of our journals which help to explain the method.

Adding 4 digit numbers when we have to rename can be really tricky, but that has been no problem for 4MB. We have been using place value disk to help us explain the method (we also have some tutorials on our page - go check them out). I wonder if you can tell us what we would rename 13 as?

'You have been formally invited to the wedding of King and King at the Royal Palace'
4MB have created their very own wedding invitation to the royal wedding of the two kings (look at our fabulous designs). We looked at the book 'King and King' exploring gay relationships in relation to The Equality Act 2010.

Not only have 4MB been focusing on gymnastics, but we have also been learning how to play basketball. We have been looking at tactic to get free from a defender so we can get the ball to the goal. We can use a sprint dodge, feint dodge and a double dodge. We have had lots of fun trying to trick our opponents. We even got to play a full game against each other.

4MB have been looking at the Tudors and what fun we have had! Before looking at all the terrible things the King and Queens did we had to work out which King and Queens we were talking about. We created our very own Tudor timeline, looking at how long each monarch was on the throne. Who would have thought that Lady Jane Grey was only Queen for 9 days before she was executed!
