Science - Digestion
The children started their new Science topic by drawing the parts of the digestive system onto a life size picture for their pre-learning task. There were some interesting ideas!
We have been exploring the true meaning of Christmas in RE and the children have made their own Nativity scenes.
Thank you for your support with the recent homework project. The children enjoyed sharing their work and we had a variety of models, PowerPoint's, posters, booklets and even a puppet show!
Year 4 went to visit the church to find out about Baptism.
Class 4BB Inspire
Thank you to all of the adults who came for class 4BB's inspire workshop.
The children really enjoyed being Tudors for the day and finding out about their clothes and the activities that would have taken place. They all looked amazing in their costumes.
Thank you to everyone who attended our inspire.
4BB Class Worship
Class 4BB carried out their worship about Children In Need.
In Science we have been exploring static electricity. The children had some hair raising fun generating their own static electricity and exploring how its charge reacted to different objects around the classroom - including their hair!
Year 4 were invited to Lichfield Library to take part in a craft workshop. Each class made a poppy memorial to keep in school and the children made an individual poppy to go on the libraries memorial display.
The children recreated a Tudor pastime of Nine Men Morris. They had to draw out the game board before playing against their opponent.
Henry VIII Blind Date
We wanted to find out which wife was the best - so we played Tudor Blind date. The winning wife was Catherine of Aragon. Do you agree?
Year 4 investigated factors by playing factor (bug) splat.
Class Worship - 4ST
4ST carried out their class worship thinking carefully about showing tolerance towards other religions.
Year 4 have been exploring adverbials using sentence building techniques and Drama using our Class Text.

International Language Day
On Tuesday 26th September Year 4 learnt some Italian.
We had fun learning to count, the colours and so basic phrases.
Battle of Bosworth
Year 4 have been to battle. The children enjoyed taking on different roles and recreating the famous battle.
In science we are exploring electricity and the children explored making circuits to see:
- Who could make light?
- How bright can you make your light?
- Can you make a noise with your circuit?
We were very lucky to have a visitors in year 4 who taught us all about sustainability and the three R's.
Recycle, Reuse and Reduce.
