Nightingales - Year 4

Welcome to Nightingales!


Hi everyone!

Welcome to our exciting new class page.  I will be updating it with news, children's work, achievements and much more very soon.  Our class newsletters will now also be available here too.  I am really looking forward to receiving your feedback.  Please let me know if there's anything you'd like to see here on our class page.

In Nightingales, we have had a special visitor in our class (as mentioned on the Newsletter), Elfie the Elf has been flown in from the North Pole with very specific instructions: to look out for those children that are trying to do their best. She noticed that Mantvydas had kindly helped other children with their work, Nathan was trying very hard with his writing and Jonelle and Urvika have been showing some great mathematical reasoning.

She has also been a little mischievous throughout the week, giving the children a little laugh when they come into the class in the morning.

In Year 3 and 4, we had a special visitor for our Romans topic. Her name was Boudicca! She came to tell us the story of how Britain/the Celtic tribes attempted to resist the Roman invasion in 43AD-55AD. The children were very intrigued when she ran into our school hall screaming and shouting that there were Romans chasing her!

Boudicca inspired us to create collages with different materials so we could remember what she looked like which then helped us to produce some descriptive writing of Boudicca’s appearance/storyboards using time conjunctions to order the events of the resistance.


Have a look below at some of the fantastic work produced by the children:
