As part of our Religious Education, we have been exploring stillness. This technique helps us think deeply, use our imagination and be creative.
We explored and shared stillness and tensing techniques that can help us learn.
Now we have returned to school, we have started our new topic, The Vikings! Over the Christmas holiday, we were all very busy producing Viking artefacts such as shields and swords, writing newspaper articles about the Vikings or creating our very own Viking playing cards!
Take a look at our display to see our exciting work!
Our Ukulele Assembly
During the Autumn term, we have been learning to play the ukulele.
Here we are performing one of our songs to the rest of school. We hope you enjoy our performance.
We’re Spotty for Pudsey!
To help with our school’s fundraising effort, we all came to school dressed in something SPOTACULAR!
We worked with our friends to create fundraising stalls to raise money for Children in Need. Our stalls were all different and included delicious buns and cakes baked at home, beauty stalls, competitions, games and much more!
Wednesday 15th November was the day we were all evacuated to the countryside. We waved goodbye to our parents before coming into our ‘new’ school. Our school day was very different to what we were used to.
Mrs Bray was very strict and insisted we had a hand inspection to check we were clean and tidy. We sat in table rows and had to be very, very quiet. We practised chalk and talk from the board and then had drill practice in the playground.
It was such fun to dress up and pretend to be an evacuee.
To help us understand the significance of Remembrance Day, we made our second visit to Valley View Care Home on Wednesday 8th November.
We were excited to be able to deliver our completed poppy wreath and individual poppies to the residents, which they had so carefully helped us make the previous week.
As part of the celebrations, we sang to the residents many familiar songs to them, including Keep the Home Fires Burning, It’s a Long Way to Tipperary and On a Bicycle Made for Two. A wonderful afternoon was had by all and many of the residents joined in with the singing!
Visit to Valley View Care Home
On Wednesday 1st November, Class 4 visited Valley View Care Home. We made felt poppies with the residents. The children and residents had a lovely afternoon, the residents particularly enjoyed getting to know the children. Before leaving, the children sang some songs they had been learning from the World War Two era.
Year 4 Visit to Eden Camp
We visited the World War Two museum in North Yorkshire. We had lots of exciting experiences, such as walking through a blitz, seeing what a real life street would have been like during the war and experiencing a prisoner of war camp!
As part of our World War 2 topic, we have being learning about the different types of air raid shelters used during the bombings. We have built our own Anderson shelter during our outdoor learning lessons.
We are Class 4 South America!!
Our class identity this year is South America. To help us learn more about who we are, we have produced various pieces of artwork that celebrate South America.
Take a look at our South American flags and wildlife!
