Jan 2020 - Timetables Rock Star Launch Day
Wow! Year 4's dress sense hit like a true rock slam! What a way to kick off and launch our school's brand new online times tables game. I can see many a rock battle challenge being set. Mr Shute has already impressed his Pufferfish class with his lightening quick finger speed and we look forward to everyone's speed and accuracy improving too!
Jan 2020 - Blue Abyss
To kick off our new topic, Year 4 visited Sealife Adventure on the seafront to take a peek under the waves and come face to face with a variety of underwater creatures. Some of the highlights of the visit were, of course, the Blacktip Reef Shark (see below), Lion Fish tank and the entertaining penguins. Everyone was given the chance to touch a starfish and many of the children were surprised at how rough but oddly soft it felt. Class 4S even managed to find their namesake - the pufferfish! (pic 3)
Dec 2019 - "1066"
Year 4 have been busy this half term learning about the monumental events of '1066'. We have learnt about the historic Battle of Hastings including the elements of both William's and Harold's armies, written diaries as if we were soldiers in battle. We have also written letters to persuade a senior Norman Lord to choose our castle design and then using those designs to make our own castles. Building a replica castle isn't as easy as it first seemed - this is where our value of tenacity shone through.
