Welcome to Year 4. The children have been working really hard and have thrown themselves in to their new focus within the topic 'Conflict'. We have been studying the story of the brave Viking warrior Beowulf and learning all about the Vikings and their settlement in Great Britain.

Here is the presentation made to parents at the beginning of the term.
The children have written some amazing persuasive speeches by Beowulf, persuading his armies to follow him into battle against the dreaded monster Grendel! Look at some of their fantastic work below.
The children have received a letter from Hiccup the dragon tamer, asking them to create Wanted posters so that the people of Basingstoke are protected from the escaped dragon. They have created some amazing work!
We had a very exciting start to the year when the children became detectives, determined to solve the mystery of the dragon egg! They discovered the hatched dragon egg, slime, chewed books and burnt clothing as well as a map. After reading a news report about dragon eggs stolen from the Isle of Berk, the children started to make connections with what they had found. They have written to Hiccup, a dragon expert, for advice and look forward to his reply!
