17.11.21 -Murton Park Trip (Vikings) 

We had an amazing visit to Murton Park today to learn more information about who the Vikings were and how they lived. 


 We had so much fun learning to how to make tea light holders and bread BUT the most fun came when we took on the role of a Viking Warrior! 

What do you think of our fighting skills? Do you think we're scary? 

11.11.21 - Remembrance Day 

We had some very mature discussions today about why Remembrance Day is so important. 

We created our own images to symbolise what the day means to us and the significance of the poppy. 

09.11.21 - Science 

In our Science topic we are learning all about electricity. In our lesson today, we were working in our pairs to create a circuit to make a bulb light up. We then drew the circuits into our books.

Mrs Merdani and Miss Gibbons were super impressed with our work!

04.11.21 - Viking Research 

To deepen our knowledge about the Vikings we used Primary and Secondary sources to find out more information.

We learnt: how the Vikings would fight; what the Vikings would eat and drink; what Viking settlements were like and we investigated different Viking artefacts. 

04.11.21 - Viking Chronology 

We have begun our new history topic ' Anglo Saxons and the Vikings'. 

Today, we used our knowledge of history topics we have learnt so far, to place the Viking Era on a timeline. We had to have lots of discussions in our groups. Miss Wharton was really impressed!

02.11.21 - ROCKSTAR DAY!

We had an amazing day doing lots of active learning around our times tables. We loved working with Year 3 and playing lots of games!

18.10.21 - EUROPEAN DAY! 

Today we celebrated the end of our Geography topic ‘Exploring Europe’ 

We used Lego to build famous landmarks found in Europe. Can you guess what they are? 

We tasted some traditional food from Europe. Some were nicer than others! 

Then, we put our dance moves to the test! What do you think of our moves? 

11.10.21 - Moses and the Burning Bush 

We have been learning about stories from the Old Testament. Today we learnt about the story of Moses and the Burning Bush. We looked at different artists and their interpretations of the story. We then created our own piece of artwork using chalk pastels.

Do you like our interpretations?

07.10.21- Story by the Campfire 

We enjoyed reading our class text by the campfire today. We even had hot chocolate and marshmallows - thank you Miss Gibbons! 

05.10.21 - This Green Moon 

We had an amazing time today at 'This Green Moon' with Paul and Ash! We had so much fun using our detective skills to find clues hidden around the forest. 

Again, thank you Mrs Duffy for organising a fantastic trip!

04.10.21 -  Fanwood Scout Camp

Today we had a fantastic time at Fanwood Scout Camp. We did lots of activities including: Bouldering and Low Ropes. We had so much fun!

Thank you Mrs Duffy for organising such an exciting day!

30.09.21 - English 

We have been using our senses to describe a 'Candy World' using our Class Reader 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' as inspiration! Today we tried lots of different sweets and described how they felt and what they tasted like. 

Some sweets were nicer than others. Miss Wharton even tried liquorice!

24.09.21 - Maths

Miss Wharton taught a new game this week in maths to build our times table knowledge and rapid recall. Finger Fit fun!

21.09.21 - Maths

We were learning about how to place numbers on a number line. We worked really hard and did a bit of 'ping pong' with Miss Wharton. Some parts were tricky but we got through it and persevered. We love Maths!

16.09.21 - Music 

Just a short clip of our Ukulele lesson this week. Check out how we are getting on so far! 

16.09.21 - Maths 

This week we have been developing our knowledge of 3 digit numbers. We used base 10 today to represent 3 digit numbers and partition them into 1s, 10s and hundreds. We even challenged our partners. 

10.09.21 - Geography

We have been researching physical features which can be found in Europe today and found out lots of fun facts and where they are. It was fun to use the laptops and iPads to help research and created fact posters for our display.

09.09.21 - Geography

We have been learning about different climate zones in Geography today. It was interesting to see how the globe is split into different zones and to find out which countries are in them. 

08.09.21 - Writing

We Have been dreaming in Year 4 and writing some descriptive pieces of writing. Mr Biedka and I were really pleased with the amount of things the children had remembered.
