Reading morning - October 2016
We held a special Reading Morning for children to present and share their favorite books from home. Everyone enjoyed sharing and seeing all the different types of books that were on display. The reading morning helped introduce children to new books and authors.
Y4 Victorian Classroom
Y4 – Victorian Classroom
Year 4 travelled back in time to the late 19th century to experience life as a child in the Victorian era. They spent the morning focussing on the three Rs: reading, writing, arithmetic. Some children even experienced some of the dreaded punishments that were used in Victorian schools like the dunce’s hat, the finger stocks and even the dreaded cane!
Y4 Space Centre
Y4 – National Space Centre
The Year 4s took a trip to the National Space Centre in Leicester in order to explore the Space topic further. As well as exploring the gallery, we watched a film in the Sir Patrick Moore planetarium called ‘Astronaut’, and climbed up the 144 stairs to catch a glimpse of a rocket made by NASA in the USA.
Y4 Forest School
Y4 – Forest School
In small groups, the Year 4 children were given the challenge to make a variety of 3D shapes using only a few materials found in the forest school area, some masking tape, and secateurs. This was our second outing to the forest school, and we are really excited by the prospect of going out once a week to explore and experience this space.

Last term in Y4 our topic was space. We were fortunate enough for a solar eclipse to take place during our topic.
We were able to safely observe the eclipse from our balcony using cameras and telescopes with the correct safety filters in place.

Our topic this term is Space. We imagined we were looking through a magical telescope. We have written a poem and decorated it with drawings of planets, aliens and rockets. We hope you enjoy reading them.

Y4 - Forge Dam Walk
Forge Dam Walk
All of Year 4 went on a walk from school through the parks to Forge Dam recently, that's over six miles! On the way we looked at all the different habitats in the parks. We also identified trees and leaves using leaf identification charts. Have a look at the photos of our work (below) or come and see the display outside our classroom.
India by Y4
In year 4 we have done some work on India. Below are just a few examples of the work we did.
