Year 4 had another special visitor today who taught us how to stay safe online. Children participated in a variety of activities that promoted an awareness of cyber bullying. A successful session that ensured children now know how to be cyber wise!

Year 4 are currently learning about volcanoes and how they are formed.
Do you like our fantastic display?
Today, Year 4 were investigating how different conditions could effect the time it takes for ice to melt. The class planned the investigation carefully, thinking about what variables to keep the same, or what to change. They then carefully observed and recorded the results. Great work Year 4!
This afternoon, the school held it’s ASPIRE awards ceremony, recognising children who have demonstrated consistently the school values: Act Safely, share and care for the school environment, promote positivity, show an ‘I can’ attitude, respect everyone, and encourage others. It was a tough decision for Mr Langstone to choose one winner from Year 4, but that lucky child was Gabrielle! A very worthy winner indeed 🙂 Even better news was that Gabrielle won the whole school award for her achievements this term. The whole class are proud of you Gabrielle!
Year 4 got the opportunity today to paint their clay Canopic Jars they created last week. All the children’s work looks very bright and a lot of effort was put in by all 🙂
Thank you to all the children and parents who created these fantastic wooden spoon scarecrows! Everyone has loved looking at them today 🙂
Many thanks to all the children and their parents who contributed towards the amazing model Sarcophagus’ and Mummies that the children brought in as part of their Ancient Egypt Homework Project. We were all amazed by the quality of the projects, and we all got to see them this afternoon as they were presented to the whole class 🙂
Today, Year 4 had an exciting visitor; Mr Langstone brought in his pet Tortoise, Roger, for the children to see! As well as allowing the children to see an interesting creature in the flesh and find out more about it, we also looked at ‘How animals eat’ in Science, and found Roger’s place on the food chain (just a consumer in captivity, but probably prey in the wild for larger animals!) All the children really enjoyed learning more about him, and we hope he will come and pay another visit soon 🙂
This afternoon, Year 4 returned to St. John’s church to learn more about Harvest and why it is so important in the Christian calendar. The children looked at the importance of not just Fruit and Vegetables at this time of the year, but other resources such as water, wool, grain and honey. Everyone learnt something new and a great time was had by all!

Today, Year 4 performed in a special assembly for Black History Month. They brilliantly read Martin Luther King Jr’s famous ‘I have a dream’ speech, gave the rest of the school some interesting information about his life, and gave a rendition of the song ‘I can see clearly now’. The whole class did exceptionally well with their singing and speaking. As a treat, they were also allowed to taste some refreshments traditionally eaten by the the Black and Asian community, including bun and cheese, patty’s, kool aid and samosas 🙂
As part of Black History Month, Year 4 had a chance to try some Steel Drums this week! They learnt that the steel drum was made of old oil drums that were left on the island of Trinidad in the West Indies. They came to England in 1951 when they were first played at the Notting Hill Carnival, and have been in our country ever since! The children created some beautiful sounding music during the session, and were a credit to the school in how they listened and participated 🙂
Today, Year 4 began to make model Canopic Jars out of clay. Luckily, they won’t hold the organs of dead pharaohs but we hope they look just as good when they are done 🙂
A big welcome back to all of the parents, family members and children who have been wondering when our blog would be back! Now that we are up and running expect regular updates 🙂
