Welcome to Year 4.

It is fabulous to have you all back! 

If you are having to self-isolate or work from home for any reason, use these resources for the first few days. Miss Saxton will then be in touch regarding with subsequent days' work. 


We sold our DT project, Waffletastic Delights (healthier fruit waffles), for Enterprise Day. They proved to be very popular and we enjoyed making them!

Healthy Week - Sound journey around school. We used the sounds we heard to use onomatopoeia to present our findings on an aerial map of the school grounds.

We were all really impressed with our clay dragon eyes!

Our virtual dance session.

On our return to school we have decided our new whole class target is going to be ' To have a sensible lunchtime and be ready when the teacher arrives.'

YAY - Well done Year. We have achieved our whole class target 'To come in from break quietly and sensibly showing we are ready to learn.' smiley

Sid the Snowman was a real 'hit' with the children! We are bringing him back this Friday for lots more shots :)

In History we realised that only adult Athenian males were allowed to vote! We also discovered how significant Alexander the Great was in building the largest empire in History.

We are fabulous guitarists!

Then we used jumping and hopping skills from REAL PE to work socially as a group to develop the routine using our own ideas.
