Our topic for this term is ‘Powerful Planet.' The children will learn all about the wonders of our majestic planet. There will be no external school trip but we have booked a Volcanologist to come in and run an interactive session with the children in January.
In connection with this topic, we plan to have a fundraising activity in Term 4 - more details about this will be sent home later this term.
Year 4 have visited Hucclecote Library to peruse the many books they have on offer. We had a great time and chose some really exciting and intriguing books. Ms. Hayward was particularly impressed by some of their Christmas books. We can't wait to go again, early next term.
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!!

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.
