Internet Safety

On Friday, year five and six were visited by two ladies who came to discuss internet safety. They explained about the age limits on various websites, what dangers to look out for and what to do if you do not feel safe.

What did you learn?

Welcome back year five, and welcome back Miss Shahbaz. This half term our topic is WWII and we will be going on a trip to Tatton Park to learn about what life was like for evacuees during the war.

If you would like to complete some extra homework, please visit Education City where I have created some new ‘My Cities’ for you to have a go at. You can also have another go at the older ‘My Cities’ as it is always good to revisit previous work. TT Rockstars is another great website and app where you can practice your times tables.

Year 4 Photos – Spring 1

We have been very busy this half term! Here are some photos to prove it!!

In Maths, we have been learning about angles, symmetry, perimeter and properties of 2D shapes.In Science, the rice experiment taught us that vibrations create sound and we investigated how to make a low and high pitched sound with various instruments.

In English, we learnt a Polish legend about a clever cobbler who defeated a terrible dragon and a rhythm and rap poem about an iguana. In RE, we learnt how Hindus worship at home and in a Mandir and created a Hindu shine in our classroom. In French, we learn to name the parts of the body and what to say at the doctor’s. We also took part in a fantastic workshop on the Ancient Egyptian mummies!

Well done, Year 4!
