User Rating:  / 3

We hope you all enjoyed a restful and enjoyable Christmas break. A big thank you for the thoughtful presents  the staff received from the children - we were all very touched!

We would like to welcome Mrs Brady to the year group. She has had a fantastic first week in school and the children are being very helpful helping her to find her way around and remember the times of the day! Super work all round!.

This week we will be beginning a specially designed 'Friendship Course' in year 4 run by members of 'Our Place Mentoriing Scheme'. The course will run in school for four weeks and is designed to support the children with friendship difficulties and equip the children with strategies to be a good friend and resolve problems when they arise. This forms part of our PSHE work for the half term.

'Our Place' have requested the opportunity to film the children they are working with to help promote their service to other schools and agencies. Your child will be bringing home a consent form to sign so you can agree for your child's participation in this or not.

Wow!! A Fantastic Show!!

Professor McGinty Visit

User Rating:  / 2

Wow! What an amazing time we had with Professor McGinty and his assistant 'Dr hoot' the owl! The children travelled back in time to Celtic Britain and the time of the Romans. The professor showed the children how the Romans changed Britain and they got to examine lots of Roman Artefacts including pottery, coins and mosaic artwork. The children learnt a lot in this fun and practical session, thanks Professor McGinty!!


Volcanoes and Earthquakes comes to an end

User Rating:  / 1

In Year 4 we are quite sad to see our Volcanoes and Earthquakes topic come to an end. We have learnt a lot about how they are formed and the countries that have so many. To complete the topic some of use made our own volcanoes and made them erupt with a mixture of Bicarbonate of Soda, Washing- up liquid and Vinegar.

Black History Week

User Rating:  / 0

This week in school, we have been celebrating Black History Week. In year 4, we have been learning about Mary Seacole and her impact on society. We found out that she is famous for being a nurse and for making medicines to help the sick and injured soldiers in the Crimean War. We used our resourcefulness to find out more information on the laptops, visiting an interactive website. You can visit the website yourself and find out more by clicking on the image.

On Wednesday last week, representatives from Year 4 (boys and girls!) went to play football in a small tournament at Arthur Terry school. The children played three matches, won, lost and drew! The children were a credit to the school and worked well as a team. Congratulations to all that took part!!

We have learned that a sound is made by a vibration. We have also learned that pitch is when the sound changes between high and low sounds. This week in Science, we have been understanding how the pitch of a sound can vary depending on the length of the vibrating part. To test this out, we twanged different lengths of ruler to see how the pitch changed.100 4630

On Friday afternoon all of the children took part in their chosen sponsored event to help raise money towards our new school handwriting scheme. The afternoon was a great success with the children having great fun drawing, skipping, goal scoring, target throwing or Lego tower building.

All the children in Year 4 completed their events. Please gather any outstanding sponsor money and send into school for Friday 10th October.

Scotch Eggs and the Layers of the Earth!!

User Rating:  / 1

The children have now begun their topic, Volcanoes and Earthquakes. We began by learning about the the construction of the Earth and its four layers. We used a range of different foods in the classroom to demonstrate the thickness and make up of each of these layers! We found the best example came from a Scotch egg, the ourter breadcrumbs represented the thin crust of our planet, the sausagemeat was the thicker, more gooey, Mantle layer and the egg made up the core with the white representing the outer core and the yoke the inner!

The classrooms smelt great when we had finished!!!


Welcome back!

User Rating:  / 0

Welcome back! We've started year 4 in a really exciting way by being given our brass instruments for the year. Some of us have got baritone horns and some of us have got cornets. Our first lesson was great fun and Mr Orgill, our brass teacher, has prepared a website for us to visit at home so that we can practice our instruments as much as we can. Mr Orgill recommends 10 minutes every evening to help us to really improve throughout the year. Click on the picture to visit the website and get playing!
