Welcome to our Year Four pages. We hope that you enjoy looking through a sample of what we have been up to.
Why do we have foxes in our village?
The children have been finding out more about life in Anglo-Saxon times. We launched our topic by having a fun day outside, taking part in lots of Anglo Saxon activities. The children made Tree Guardians out of clay, practiced making knots and creating bracelets. They also found out more about Anglo Saxon life and even cooked their own stew. It was a really fun day and thank you to all of the parents who helped their children with their costumes.
Anglo Saxon Day
Autumn 2 - Love to Learn

They will undertake activities to help them develop skills of independence, team work, resilience, creativity and deep thinking. They will be reading the Barnabus Project as a stimulus for learning.
Autumn 1 - Where does my food go?

We have loved listening to the story of Norman,. A perfectly ordinary boy until he grew wings.

Wow! What an amazing start to the new school year. The children have settled into their new classrooms and routines already and we are so proud of them.
Over the last 4 weeks, children have been exploring the ideas of Hope and Optimism. We have had a lovely time listening to their ideas end encouraging them to find ways to be positive about the future!
Come back soon to read some of the children's amazing poems and diary entries.
As part of our geography learning, we took a trip to the river, in this case, Titchfield Canal. Children had the opportunity to apply their knowledge of technical language to describe the flow and shape of the river. We were also lucky enough to spot lots of wildlife. We are not sure whether the highlight of the trip was the journey on the school minibus or playing "pooh sticks!"
The children have showed off their creative side by writing their own Haikus. A haiku is a Japanese style poem based on nature. It consists of 3 lines. The first and third line have 5 syllables in, the middle line should have 7. We hope you enjoy looking at our examples.
