Welcome Back Polzeath Class - Year 4
Mrs Marshall 


We are about to begin the new Autumn Term after a considerable amount of time away from school during the Covid Pamdemic and I know everyone that works across both Delaware and Gunnislake school cannot wait to welcome the children back to their new classes.

I very much hope that the children quickly settle in and feel excited about the term ahead which we know will be full of wonderful new learning expereinces for everyone. 

With new classes formed and children from both school sites being welcomed into each year group, it will be a good opportunity for new friendhsips to evolve. There will also be new pupils joining our school and we look forward to welcome them and making sure that they soon feel a great sense of belonging as well.

This week it will be really important to make sure that we establish clear routines and make sure that everyone knows where things are. The school day will be slightly different with staggered playtimes and lunchtimes and obviously new classrooms that might look a bit different to how they looked before.

Each class teacher uploaded a video onto the school facebook page so hopefully you have been able to take a look at how our classroom looks. I have also shared some of the photographs to this class website page so you can see what things will look like.

Dragon DT, Remembrance day and Children in Need.


This week has been a very busy week, we all enjoyed getting very messy putting the first layer of papier-mache on our dragon head and he is already looking great, even though he is not yet finished! On Wednesday we observed the two minutes silence  at eleven o'clock for Remembrance day and this was focus for our guided reading and we wrote some wonderful acrostic poems. Today as we raised money for Children in Need, we watched a film and had popcorn, it was brilliant fun!

Our Viking project so far...

In our Viking research we have been trying to find out if the Vikings were Victorious and Vicious. We have learnt about their modes of transport, their home life, food and cooking habits, their beliefs about the Viking Gods and also the special place Valhalla. Next half term we will continue to discover even more about the life of the Vikings so that we can decide if they were either vicious or victorious and why? 
Take a look at our gallery of photographs to see where our journey has taken us so far ...

Dragon Eyes


This week we have been busy making Dragon Eyes using clay and a variety of clay tolls. 




Dragon Eyes - 
Tuesday 13th October


Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry.

In Art this term we have been working hard on observational drawing. The children have looked very closely at the features of a dragon eye and used a combination of art pencils, watercolour pencils, and pastels to create these fabulous pieces of art work. We learnt alot about mark making and the use of colour mising and tone. 

Next week  we will be recreating the Dragon Eye using clay, mark making tools and then finishing them off with paint.

RE - Autumn Term


This term we are discovering what people believe in. We will be asking ourselves what our own beliefs are, do we believe in God or not?

Do we have other beliefs?

What do people think God looks like?

Where do our beliefs come from?

Who did the Vikings believe in? Did they worship a God or Gods?

Why do people believe in God?

What do you believe in and why?
