Week Commencing 17th January 2022

In Science this week , 4JL have been looking at the water cycle we were able to remember the key facts and recreate the water cycle with our partners. These were completed using one of our best methods-match mind – we are only allowed to look at the image for a minute and then draw what we remembered. We worked hard with our partner to complete the image, taking it in turns to remember and draw the cycle using all the correct scientific words.

This week in History we have looked at Anglo-Saxon Runes and tried to use their 33 letter alphabet.


‚ÄčThe word RUNE means secret or mystery. Runes were used in religious ceremonies. They were a charm or a spell, as well as a way of writing messages.


That is why...

To spell (to put down the right letters in the correct order)


A spell (a magic spell)... 

Are the same word in English.


Did you know that even our words READ and WRITE relate to runes?

The Anglo-Saxon word 'writan' means to carve runes and 'ridan' means to interpret or know what the runes mean.


Above are some examples of our names written in the Anglo-Saxon alphabet.

Week Commencing 3rd January 2022

In 4JL, we are starting to look at the Anglo-Saxons.

This week, we looked at some artefacts and talked about things we already knew about the Anglo-Saxons. This then got us thinking about all the things we still want to find out and things we were curious about after considering the artefacts.
We gathered our questions to find the answers to over the course of the topic.
