Year 4

Mr Hurst and Mrs Knight really enjoyed meeting you and spending the day together before we start back after the summer holiday.  They are really looking forward to getting to know you better and teaching you next year.

Our new topic is The Great Outdoors and we have lots of exciting lessons and activities planned, including spending time outside.

Over the summer, if you would like you could do some of the following activities relating to our topic:

  • Go on a walk and see how many different plants and animals you can spot
  • Camp – try spending a night outdoors in the garden or away from home
  • Build a den outside

Also, here are some recommended reads for you to enjoy:

  • There’s a Werewolf in My Tent by Pamela Butchart
  • The Animals of Farthing Wood by Colin Dan
  • Climate Rebels by Ben Lerwill

Have a wonderful summer break and we look forward to seeing you on the first day back!

Wow Work 2020 – 2021

Take a look at some of the marvellous work that the children did in the last academic year!

Year 4 have been learning to play the violin, viola or cello this year. As we were unable to do an end of year concert for parents due to COVID restrictions, we filmed the children playing some of the pieces they have learnt. We are so proud of the progress they have made in learning string instruments. Thank you to Claire who has been teaching them.

The children wrote TV news reports about natural disasters as part of our Extreme Earth topic. Lilly worked very hard in the last few days of term (with some help from some of her friends) to create hers as a Scratch project. Check out her awesome work!

Copper Marans Chicks – Updated Video

Year 4 have hatched two Copper Marans chicks this Spring. The chicks hatched on Friday 19th March, we named them Chicki Minaj and Hen Solo. They were joined a few days later by a Boris the turkey chick, hatched by Year 1. All three are now living outside at school. Here is a video of them from hatching to six weeks old, when they were moved outside.
