We have enjoyed designing our own William Morris creations, then we carved our patterns onto a tile and printed them using ink and rollers. We also researched some famous Victorians and created amazing posters using our research.

This week we have been designing our own Victorian schools and then navigating the Spheros around the corridors on our maps. At first it was tricky to control the Spheros but we persisted. By the end of the challenge every team was able to complete the task. Bendigedig blwyddyn pedwar!

We are stepping back in time today to experience life in a Victorian school. There are many strict rules that we will have to learn so that we can avoid punishments like the cane and the dunce's hat. We will be able to see if we prefer school in the Victorian era or school now.

Croeso! Welcome back to school we hope you are looking forward to our new topic Vile Victorians. We decided to reflect on our Harry Potter topic today so that we could remember all the fun we had during our first term in year 4.

 

Just a reminder we are dressing up as Victorians on Thursday if you would like to join in.This is optional and if finding Victorian style clothing is difficult please do not worry. Diolch.

What have year 4 been up to this term? Well our DigiDudes went to investigate.

Ogmore Beach Clean

 

Year 4 joined forces with the Marine Conservation Society to help do their bit in the fight against plastic pollution. The children had a great day tackling the issue head on.

 

The damage and destruction plastic causes to marine life and the surrounding landscape is devastating. Thankfully they managed to collect in over 30KG of litter! It is so sad that that amount of litter had to be picked up in the first place but thank goodness for our children, Springwood Primary and the Marine Conservation Society for trying to tackle such a huge and devastating problem.

 

Da iawn pawb!!!

We have been working on our Harry Potter dances. In small groups we have developed short sequences of dance that echo the mood of the magical music from the Harry Potter films. Our next task is to combine our moves and create a class dance that we can perform for our teachers and peers.

'Three Brothers' Animations

 

Using the Stop Frame Animation app, we patiently took shots of our ‘Three Brothers’ scene making sure not to get any hands in the way. We took our time moving our characters, as we have learnt that the slower the movement the better the animation. We also had to make sure our iPad and backgrounds did not move. Once our stop frame animation was complete, we then altered the frames per second (fps) to choose a speed setting that complimented it and made the movement the most fluid. Next, we created our own folder in ‘SEREN’ and uploaded our videos into it.

This week we have designed our own version of Diagon Alley, created a detailed character description and written our own mysterious fairy tale. This work is all inspired by our class reader 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone,'so please keep up to date with the class reading. Remember you could read it to a younger sibling or ask a family member to help you. Diolch yn fawr.
