English - Roman Adventure

In our English lessons we have been focusing on using the story of 'Roman Invasion a British Boy in 45AD' as inspiration for our own diary entries and narratives.


We are focusing on animation this half term in our computing lessons. We have been exploring making animations online using the laptops and different software as well as making animations in real life.


Investigating states of matter

Times Tables Rockstars

At the end of Year 4 we will have our MTC (Multiplication Tables Check) so don't forget to keep on practicing your times tables in Garage and Studio mode.

Geography/PE - Contour Lines

Here we are combining our learning using maps for both our mountains topic in Geography and our orienteering skills in PE.


This term we are putting our musical skills to test by learning to play the ukulele!

Author Focus Week - Anthony Browne

At the start of the year the whole school focused on the wonderful stories written and illustrated by Anthony Browne. In Year 4 we looked at the book 'Gorilla'. 


Using the story as inspiration and the emotions of the main character Hannah we painted emotion timelines of the story. We also drew self-portraits wearing the iconic hat, bow-tie and coat the Gorilla wears.
