Week beginning 1st April
What a busy week! We have had our Easter Service at St Mary's in Linton, finished off our Anglo-Saxon Long boat collages AND make Anglo-Saxon bread rolls, which were delicious!! Here is the recipe (if you are keen to give it a go at home!)
How to make Anglo-Saxon Bread rolls
450g of rye flour
1 tsp. of yeast (easy bake)
1 tsp. of honey
1 tsp. of salt
300 ml of water
1 tbsp. of vegetable oil
tsp = teaspoon
tbs = tablespoon
ml = millilitres
g = grams
First put the flour, yeast and salt into a large bowl.
Next, mix together the honey, water and oil in a jug.
Then, stir the mixture into the dry ingredients.
When it is sticky, knead the dough for 10 minutes until it is smooth.
Put the dough back into the bowl, cover it with cling film and leave it in a warm place to rise.
When it has risen nicely, cut into 6 pieces.
Roll them into 6 buns/rolls.
Bake for 10-12 minutes.
Week beginning 25th March
We kicked off the week with an exciting visit to West Stowe. We had a brilliant time looking around the museum and exploring the Anglo Saxon village. We had the opportunity to look at artefacts ranging from bones and animal skin to jewellery and hair combs. Back at school we have written a chronological report about what we learnt. On Tuesday, a music group called Goldfield Ensemble performed a shadow puppet folk story of children living in a village called Swaffam in the Norfolk Fens. We made some collages of the stories we heard and watched.
Week beginning 18th March
We finally got to perform Robin and The Sherwood Hoodies this week. We’d been practising our singing, dancing and acting for weeks so were pleased to be able to show the rest of the school and our parents. Enjoy looking at the photos!
We’ve also been busy writing a non-chronological report about a dragon called The Linton Longhorn. In art, we’ve created a collage of a Viking long ship.

World Book Day
What an exciting week we have had! We have celebrated World Book Day twice.
On Thursday we all dressed up as our favourite book characters, even the teachers! We visited Linton Library and explored the bookshelves. We also had the chance to explore our own school library by following a trail Mrs Hine had created for us. Working with author Bob Barnes inspired us to think about writing about our own characters.
When we arrived at school on Friday we remembered we had more book activities as well as the year 4 Rainforest Café! The café was full of delicious cookies and cake, the year 4 children did a very good job serving us and collecting our money, just like in a real café!
