It feels like we’ve hardly been away in Year 4. Two weeks ago, we were working hard to add the finishing touches to our sculptures on pallets, as part of a competition being run by Essex Wildlife Trust to help raise the profile of some of the species on Thurrock’s Biodiversity Action Plan. Some of us will be going along to the prize giving on Wednesday, so watch this space to see how we do.
Now, we have come straight back from the brief break into Aspirations and Enterprise Week and we will be looking at how to prepare for some of the jobs and skills that we would like to have in the future. Never mind ‘Build-a…teddy’, we are going to build a CV! There will be lots of visitors in the school, coming to tell us how they got to do the jobs that they do and Year 4 will have their visitor on Thursday, so we’ll tell you all about it after that.
Today, we started our new Unit of Enquiry, looking at how ancient civilizations have impacted the way we live in modern Europe. We will particularly be looking at how the Ancient Greeks lived. We generated all sorts of questions that we hope to find answers to over the coming weeks.
