Our topic during the autumn term is Alive in Antarctica. We will be learning about the skills and knowledge required by explorers in the South Pole through historical accounts and through talking to real life, modern explorers! Much of our art, music, geography, science and English work will be linked to this topic.
Explorer, Wendy Searle, visited Year 4 to give a presentation on her 2020 expedition to Antarctica. The children got to try wearing/using some of her polar equipment and clothes. We also got to sample some of the dehydrated meals she will eat, such as 'chicken tikka with rice' and 'apple and custard pudding' - they were delicious! Just before lunch, Wendy made the Year 4 staff take turns to pull her training tyre around the school field. What a great morning and what an inspiring visitor!!

Outdoor Learning: Classifying mini-beasts at Barnwood Arboretum
Class 5 have been composing music as part of our 'Wild Things' topic. In groups, we composed musical themes to describe different animals. We shared our compositions with each other and tried to guess what animals we were describing. It was great fun!
Welcome to Year 4!
Our topic for the Summer term is Wild Things: we are learning all about animals and their habitats.
