Coronation Celebrations

Our topic for Summer Term 1 is 1066

We’re travelling back to 1066, probably the most famous date in English history. These are troubled times and there is danger afoot. A much loved king is dead and a French Duke has staked a claim for our kingdom. Discover a changing England, shaped by shires, protected by castles and ruled by foreign knights. Use the famous Bayeux Tapestry to explore the significant events of 1066. What happened when, and how did William of Normandy come to be called the Conqueror? Design a castle with defences strong enough to hold back the enemy. What about a space for fine dining and revelry? Try and build a happy (but safe) home. You’re the architect. Are you ready for the Norman invasion? Then don your armour and watch your back.

British Science Week

Class 4 had fun investigating fantastic fingerprints as part of British Science Week. The children took prints of their fingers and identified which pattern each finger had (loop, arch or whorl), they dusted for fingerprints around the classroom, and they used cocoa powder and pencil to record their fingerprints on clear tape. 

World Book Day

Class 4 had a lovely World Book Day. This year, it was based on the book Journey by Aaron Becker. We created a 'magic class door' and created our own worlds through drama, art and creating animations using Purple Mash. We also watched a webinar with author Helen Rutter. 

The Deep

Class 4 have had a a fantastic start to their new topic with their trip to The Deep.
