In DT, we have been making money containers. The children have learnt how to use a variety of stitches from the back stitch to the blanket stitch. They have also used a button or a zip to fasten their containers. We are very proud of the children and the exceptional job they have done! 

Literacy - Instructions

Mad Scientist Day! 26.04.19

After receiving an email from Professor Puffendorf, the children were asked to come to school dressed as mad scientists to create some new potions that she can use in her next conference. The children enjoyed making potions, taking part in science experiments and playing with oobleck! 

Literacy -  23.04.19

This half term we will be focusing on instructional writing in Year 4. The children began by editing and improving a set of instructions on how to make a jam sandwich before making one for themselves! Yum! We will share our own set of instructions for a magical potion very soon!  

Science week! - 11.03.18  - The children have had a fantastic week this week. We had a very special visit from PrimeVR where the children were instantly transported to Ancient Egypt! It was very funny to watch, especially when we were able to see inside of a real life tomb... It definitely made a few of us jump! 

World Book Day Activities 05.03.19 - To get the children into the spirit of World Book Day, we had some lovely visitors who completed various activities with each class. Year 4 were lucky enough to create their own medals to be a part of the David Walliams' story 'The Midnight Gang'. Some prizes were awarded for the best colouring in and all children received a lovely certificate! 

08.02.19 - The children in Year 4 had a very busy day this day as we dressed as animals to raise money for our school charity WWF, but it was also the day a Chocolatier visited to teach the children a little more about our chocolate topic. The children designed their own t-shirt chocolates using a special mould and made their own chocolate lollipops to take home. As you can see in the images below, we finished the visit with some very yummy chocolate mustaches!

Chocolatier visit

30.01.19 - Year 4 have been busy creating chocolate machines out of recycled produce to inspire their creative writing in our current chocolate unit. These machines turned out brilliantly and the children have created some wonderful explanation texts as to how their chocolate machines work. 

4F Superhero Day - 15.01.19 


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!

Year 4 Alien Day - 17.09.18

We had a fantastic 'Alien Day' in Year 4. The children enjoyed alien activities, they made flying saucers and alien models for our Literacy writing.
