Design and Technology

This week it was time to make the sandwiches and wraps that year 4 had devised for themselves after our research this term. Children selected a combination of ingredients, prepared them and assembled their sandwiches and wraps. Following taste testing they evaluated their products.

Science  -   What is melting?

"I think it will change it's state." Jenny

"The ice will be the first to melt." Quorra

"Jelly will turn to liquid." Oscar

"Nothing is happening because it's not hot enough." Ezri 

Forest School

This week year 4 assembled cards from materials they gathered in the forest. It was a very absorbing activity and the results were super.

Mystery Object

Every week Mr Cooksley, one of our school governors comes in to help Year 4 with their learning. This week he told us all about the mysterious object he had left in the classroom. The children had many interesting and inspired thoughts. Can you guess what it is?


Using thermometers year 4 carried out observations over the day, measuring the temperature of ice and recording their findings in a table. They considered what their results could tell them about changing states.


On our English working wall we can see our learning journey. Writing Antonyms was part of our journey this week. Niamh's super poem, using antonyms was published on the wall so everyone can read it.



Year 4 used drama to support them in the creation of expanded noun phrases. They made up actions to match their words and presented their ideas to the class.
