What a fun-filled yet busy term we have had in Year 4! We have enjoyed writing both science-fiction and narrative based stories in English based on our books ‘Farther’ and ‘The Iron Man’, learned about Eastern Europe and Northern Ireland in Geography and enjoyed our topic of ‘The Romans’ in History.
This half term in Computing, Year 4 have been enjoying learning the new skill of photo editing. We have used a programme called ‘Pixlr’ to change, edit and design photos. One highlight of this topic has been when we used software to create mythical creatures, combining animals together and editing them into a mystical world! We used these skills to create book and film covers.
Technology is the future, there is no doubt about it! Our goal with Computing is to equip the children for prospects that may not even exist in our current society! During this topic, we have discussed the job opportunities within the digital media world, including: photography and videography, graphic design and animation.
