Year 4

Welcome to year 4! We have lots of exciting learning to share with you!

Boy’s Sport Festival

Some of the year 4 boys took part in the Boy’s Sport Festival. They had a great day competing as a team and developing their teamwork and communication skills.

Outdoor Learning

We enjoyed a trip to The Orchard. We potted some seeds, learned about different plants that are emerging for the spring and enjoyed a camp fire.

Amazing Artists

We used watercolours to create mixed media collages based on the work of Monet and Lady Aiko.

Mediterranean cooking

As part of our geography topic we were visited by a Mediterranean chef who helped us to prepare delicious traditional dishes.

Snozzcumbers and Frobscottle

As a hook in to our new class text – The BFG – we enjoyed (or not!) tasting snozzcumbers and frobscottle.


To launch our Spring Term text of Leon and The Place Between, we were visited by a real life magicial – Peter Presto – who wowed us with his magic tricks.

Conductors and Insulators

In science we have been conducting our own experiments to investigate materials that are conductors and insulators of electricity.

St Ann with Emmanuel Church visit

We made Christingles in RE. We made these as we were studying about symbols of Christmas. We then took them to Emmanuel Church where we listened to and sang a range of hymns.

IntoFilm festival experience

We took part in IntoFilm festival and visited the cinema to watch a film. We enjoyed the experience and hopefully will get to visit again next year!

The start of out musical journey

We are all very excited to be learning to play stringed instruments. We had been having lessons from a music teacher to develop our skills and can’t wait to learn more!

Artefact Investigators

In history we have been getting hands on with some historical artefacts linked to our Egyptian topic. We have been discussing the difference between primary and secondary sources of information.

The Orchard

We love visiting The Orchard at Sycamore. We were excited to get outside for some outdoor education.

Maths invesitgators

We have been investigating different types of triangles in maths. Come and test our knowledge!

A visit from Into University

We had a visit from Into University and learnt about some exciting career opportunities such as civil engineering, palaeontology and product design.

Investigating the digestive system

We have been learning all about the digestive system in science. We conducted an experiment to see how our body processes food and turns waste products into poo!

Design technology

We are very creative and have enjoyed lots of different projects. Come and see our work at our termly exhibition!

We are artists!

We have been following instructions to draw animals.


As part of our physical education we went along to Market Square to try out a new sport. Ice-skating!
