Spring Term 2017

To celebrate their learning in French with Madame Watson all of Year 4 participated in a fantastic France Day. They celebrated many aspects of the French culture and lifestyle, including the language, fashion design and food. What a great experience.

Autumn Term 2016

D.T. Week – Making Canopic Jars

As part of their studies focussing on Ancient Egypt, the children in Year 4 designed and constructed their own canopic jars. These jars would have originally been used to store the organs that were removed from a body during mummification. I hope the children left those parts out!

Trip to the British Museum

The children were lucky enough to visit the British Museum to help enhance their learning in history about the Ancient Egyptians. They explored the different galleries and took part in an exciting workshop.

Speed Stacking Competition

The whole of Year 4 travelled up to Queens School to partake in an exciting speed stacking competition. The children had tremendous fun trying to stack and take down the cups as fast as they can. Well done.

Mathematics Investigation

The children worked together to solve an investigation in addition. They used a variety of resources to add together a large group of numbers. Great tem work and use of strategies.

Drama Presentations in Literacy

Children worked together to write and present a short presentation about teeth, linked to their science topic. They thought about the key elements of making a good presentation before delivering it to the rest of the class.
