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!

Trip to York Chocolate Story- Year 4

Last Wednesday, Year 4 had an amazing day in York.

They had a guided tour of York Chocolate Story to learn all about the history of chocolate and the importance of York and its chocolate factories. They tasted lots of different kinds of chocolate and had a Science workshop in the Methodist Church hall where they learnt about the process of melting and cooling and made their own chocolate wallpaper.

The children were a credit to our school as they all behaved impeccably all day!

Well done, Year 4!

Over the past few weeks, Year 4 have been learning names of fruit and vegetables.

They really enjoyed the role-plays we did in class where they had to pretend they were at a street market in France and had to sell and buy fruit and vegetables.
