Spring 2: Land of The Living 

I hope everyone has had a fantastic break and had lots of fun. This term we are looking at 'Land of the Living' as our topic and we have some special friends coming into the classroom. This is a geography and science topic and I think year 4 are going to have lots of fun with it. We are looking at Charlotte's web in English which is such a great book. In maths we are still looking at decimals and fractions. We will be looking at the Easter story and in the first week we will be looking at Chinese New Year. 


See you soon

Lessons from India

Spring 1: India 


Welcome back, we hope you had a fantastic Christmas. This term we are going to be learning a lot of geography and the country India. We are lucky enough to have some ladies coming in to show some things about Indian culture (pictures to follow). 


In maths we are looking at multiplication and division leading onto fractions. 


In English we will be reading the book Grandpa Chatterji and writing our own story about a family member who comes to visit. 

Welcome back to a new term. 


I hope you all had a fantastic half term. We are going to be scientists this term and look at Electricity in our topic 'Its Shocking'. We are very excited to turn on our science brains and explore electricity. You may have noticed children coming home with balloons today......we have started by looking at static electricity and used balloons to perform some experiments with our hair, jumpers, carpets and tissue paper to create positive charges. We made all the atoms in our hair positively charged so they repelled each other! We then made the atoms on tissue paper positively charged so they could stick to our negatively-charged balloons. It has been a lot of fun and with more fun experiments to come it is going to be a very interesting topic. I have even bought us a plasma ball for us to use in the classroom.

Our Day in York


We had a fantastic fun-filled day in York on 6th October. We started by visiting a Viking in DIG who taught us all about Viking weaponry and how many 'weapons' were also tools such as the bow and arrow and the axe. We learnt about battle formations and scare tactics and scared the life out of Mrs Beedle with our terrifying yells and ferocious expressions.

We went on to Yorvik where we took a ride around the Viking Coppergate and learnt all about Viking life. 





The Little Black Cloud


Thank to everyone for coming to our Harvest service. The children loved performing for you and we hoped that you really enjoyed it!
