Animation- 2018

During our computing lessons, we have created stop-motion videos using the iPads.  We used the alien models from our alien day and created a setting for them. We then took hundreds of photos to create a short video. Take a look at some of our work!

Clarinet lessons

We have got off to a flying start with our clarinet lessons in 4F.  The children are thoroughly enjoying learning a new skill. Please remind your child to look after their instrument at home and bring it in every Monday, ready for the lesson on Tuesday.  We look forward to seeing you at our first performance in school!

What a lot of wonderful characters turned up in year 4, ready to celebrate World  Book Day! All the children looked fantastic!

Year 4 really enjoyed Science week, children enjoyed activities including, making slime with Sublime Science, exploring the digestive system with VR head sets, learning about space in the Planetarium and learning about Marie Curie!

Chocolate comes to Year 4! - February 2018

On February 9th, each year 4 class had an opportunity to take part in a special chocolate workshop with Oliver Dunn. The children learnt about the history of chocolate and made their own chocolate. The children have worked hard to write explanations about the chocolate making process and enjoyed this first hand experience!

Year 4 Poetry- The Present

 

Year 4 have come to the end of their poetry unit in Literacy. We have focused on the poem 'The Door' by Miroslav Holub which explores what might lie behind a mysterious hidden door. 

We used this poem as a model for the children to create their own poem about  what might be inside a mysterious present and called these poems 'The Present'. This allowed the children to use their imagination and think about their possibilities, fears and hopes.

The children then performed these imaginative poems to the class in groups. Miss Carding and Mrs Rimmer were very impressed!
