Year 4

Year 4 trip to the Caldecotte Xperience
The Year 4 students recently spent two days at the Caldecotte Xperience in Milton Keynes.  The children had a fantastic time doing climbing, zorbing, canoeing and orienteering which they all thoroughly enjoyed.  They also spent Monday night at the centre with many children braving the wet weather and sleeping in tents.  Great fun!
Year 4 have been working alongside Year 2 to create a love for reading through sharing stories with each other. Reading is very important to us and we like to read out loud and discuss books. This was really fun as we got to build relationships with children from a different year group. 
An invention for Stig!
We have been reading Stig of the Dump in English and have really enjoyed thinking about and discussing his inventions made from junk! For homework we were asked to make our very own invention made from junk, just like Stig. 



At the end of October Year 4 held a cake sale in aid of Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital. This was a great success and we would like to thank all parents for the cakes that were donated. The children enjoyed baking cakes in school to sell and had lots of fun negotiating prices with the other classes. We raised a lot of money but this is still to be confirmed. We will let you know as soon as possible.

Photo Frames


In DT we made photo frames. To do this we has to use lots of different equipment to cut and glue our frames together. We used wood to make the frame and had to measure this to the correct size of our picture. This was very tricky as we had to try and cut a mitre joint to join two parts of the frame. Everyone showed great determination and we all ended with a fantastic frame for our picture!



In year 4 we are lucky enough to have Mrs Kaye from the MK Music Service working with us on world percussion. We have been using an instrument called the 'djembe' and we have been learning how to play this correctly. It has been a lot of fun playing different rhythms and signing along.
