Building Bridges

We’ve already received some amazing homework from Year 4. They had a challenge to build a 30cm bridge. The stipulation for the building challenge is, “Will the bridge hold a full soft drink can?” We shall see……. Good luck everybody!

Roald Dahl Day in Year 4

As part of our celebration of Roald Dahl’s birthday, we researched his life and found out that he used to be a pilot. We designed and decorated our own paper planes, which we flew in the hall. Each house flew their plane until we had a winner in each house. Finally, our four finalists battled until we had a winner. Well done to our two winners! The Hall just wasn’t big enough for your amazing, flying creations!

Cycle Skills July 2017

On Wednesday, our wonderful Year 3/4 children had the opportunity to work with ‘BikeIt Dave’ to enhance their skills and confidence whilst riding their bikes!

Huge thanks goes to ‘BikeIt Dave’ for his work and support with our children throughout the school year, we couldn’t have done it without him!

Year 4 Algorithm & Code

Year 4 have been using Scratch for their final half term. They have consolidated their Block Coding knowledge and are now able to visualise how code may work before even thinking of writing it using the PC. They are also debugging their own errors in code without adult help – fantastic achievements! Their knowledge will culminate in the production of their own game by the end of the year.

Meet a Creature

Year 4 had a special visit from ‘Meet a Creature’, who introduced us to our new topic all about the Amazon Rainforest. We looked at some amazing creatures that live in the Rainforest and had a go at some live sketching, which turned out amazingly. (see display outside the classroom). We then got to interact with the creatures. This included, holding a Royal Python, Tarantula, Gecko, Corn Snake, Chameleon, Frog and many more. After lunch, we watched how the different creatures moved to get around and worked together as a team to try and recreate their movements. (not easy). After that we drew giant food chains from the Amazon. Finally, we got to choose our favourite creature of the day, and had our photograph taken. What an amazing opportunity. We loved the day and we learned so much about the Amazon Rainforest’s inhabitants!
