During our drama session, Year 4 learnt about the characters feelings in our story, Elf Road. We used thought-tapping and freeze framing to gain an insight into the character feelings throughout the story and how they change.


Year 4 made a real difference around the school grounds when they did their litter pick. We collected a huge bin liner full of rubbish!



Year 4 had a brilliant day at Holdenby House on Wednesday.  We dressed as Victorians and had an authentic Victorian experience. The superb staff at Holdenby House acted in their roles all day, they showed the children the types of jobs they would’ve done back in Victorian times. After this experience, I’m sure that the children were happy that they lived in the present day as opposed to life in Victorian times!

Year 4 had an amazing art day yesterday. We studied the work of Pablo Picasso and recreated some of his famous artwork. Take a look at some of this amazing artwork.


Overnight camp letter for parents:

Letter – Kit List

For the overnight camp on Friday


Year 4 have had an amazing time completing work with a Big friendly Giant theme. We have been creating dream jars for display, where children have written their own dream inside the jars. We have also written character descriptions for our favourite characters from the Roald Dahl story.

Our new topic – India!!

Year 4 have been finding out all about the geographical features of India as part of our topic learning. The children used Atlases and large maps of the world to locate India and other features. The children are really excited about taking part in a range of very exciting activities that will be taking place throughout this term, including: henna, the festival of Holi and having a special visitor coming to see us. To top off all of this, we are also going to visit a real Indian restaurtant to sample some of their finest dishes.



Tennis Tournament

Year 4 had an amazing morning competing against their classmates in a tennis tournament.


Roald Dahl Day

The whole school celebrated the very talented Roald Dahl on Wednesday the 13th September. After a great assembly, all of the children took part in drama and a guided tour of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. We were all so inspired and couldn’t wait to design our own! We have since written some fantastic persuasive adverts trying to get as many visitors as we can!



Bake Off Fun!

Year 4 have had a fantastic start to the new school year, everyone has settled in really well and are working very hard. We were all very excited to take part in some baking today, in preparation for our coffee morning. It was a fantastic success and we raised lots of money for charity.





We are launching our new weekly Maths Challenges. We would love all children to take part and they will be rewarded for effort and achievement.
