Updates on our learning...

Friday 18th September 2015

    What a busy first week back we have had! The children have made a tremendous start to Year 4 and we have got stuck into our learning journey together. Today we were awarded 'Class of the Week' so we are all looking forward to our chocolate cake! Well deserved by all of Year 4. What a start to the year! Keep it up Year 4!



Monday 21st September 2015 - Topic Launch Day

    Today was our topic launch day and the children enjoyed a day all about World War II.

    Something very exciting happened first thing.....

Just after register, Mr Compton appeared at our classroom door with a very dirty looking bag! He explained to us that the builders had found it at the weekend when they were digging some of the ground up. We were very intrigued what it was! The children opened it and we discovered lots of evacuee items and WWII items such as: a gas mask, suitcase, a letter home and much more! We explored all of the items and had a discussion about them, where we thought it had all come from and how long we thought it had been buried for. A very interesting discovery!

    Also, as part of our launch, we have made carrot cookies, spitfires, gas mask boxes and explored on the laptops. An informative and enjoyable day had by all.

Please take the time to look through our photos in our 'Gallery.'

We cannot believe we have completed the first half term in Year 4! What a rewarding, exciting and busy half term it has been! The children have made a fantastic start to their time in Year 4 and have really stepped up to the new challenges and expectations. We have really enjoyed learning about WWII and War Horse as our class text. We look forward to continuing this learning journey after half term.

Wednesday 11th November 2015 - Remembrance Day

Wow! What a truly fantastic day we have had on our WW2 trip to Weston Park. We have visited an Anderson Shelter, Morrison Shelter, made gas masks, dressed up, visited a 1940's sitting room and much more! I am sure the children will be able to tell you what an exciting day we have had. Thank you for the effort you all went to dressing up as evacuees for the day. All children looked super and it really helped to make the trip more life like for them.

A great day enjoyed by all. Please take a look at the photos in the photo gallery.
