Welcome to Class 4!
Welcome to Class 4. During the Autumn Term, our topic is Ancient Egypt. We are exploring the rich history of this Ancient civilisation and answering important questions such as ‘Why the River Nile was important to the Ancient Egyptians?’ and ‘Why did the Ancient Egyptians build pyramids?’

All of our Year 4 pupils will have the opportunity to learn to play a brass instrument this year. The first group performed to a large audience in assembly this week and they were absolutely fabulous. We all enjoyed listening to their performances of 'Limbo Rock', 'Boogie Time' and 'Christmas Time'. Well done! The next group will now start tuition with Mrs Norris. Last year, nearly all of the children from Year 4 continued with lessons after the trial period. What a fantastic take-up!
Year 4 have studied Harry Potter in English lessons and thoroughly enjoyed creating their own poster to advertise 'The Harry Potter Studio Tour'. Have a look at some of our work below...
Thank you for your fantastic topic homework. You've all put so much effort into the task and we've both been amazed by the quality and variety of your work. From PowerPoints and posters, to models and yummy cakes and biscuits, we loved seeing (and eating) your work. What a fantastic start to the term!
Year 4's Ideal School
After producing a brochure for Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, we then set about planning our own ideal school. We were amazed by the range of ideas and amount of effort and enthusiasm.
Great work, Year 4.
This half term, Year 4 are enjoying extra football coaching on a Monday morning. Please remember to bring clothes suitable for the weather as we will be working outside. A carrier bag for muddy shoes would also be a good idea!
Up to now, we've had lots of fun learning and practising new skills.
Sports Hall Athletics
Year 4 have enjoyed a six week block of 'Sports Hall Athletics' coaching. Each week focused on a different skill: including running, jumping and throwing. During that time, games were used to develop speed, teamwork and listening skills. One thing we have learned from our coaching...Year 4 has several great athletes!
