‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Autumn Term A

Week 5

What a busy week!

This week, Christmas arrived early as we made our own designs ready to send of to be made into real Christmas cards, place mats, wrapping paper and many other items. We can't wait to see what they look like as actual Christmas items.

We have also continued our book "Escape from Pompeii" and enjoyed watching an animation of Mount Vesuvius erupting and used this to produce some fantastic multi sensory recount writing including metaphors, similes and personification.  

As well as this, we have been trying really hard to develop our joined handwriting and have tried really hard to continue to learn our times tables.

Week 4

Our children have been enjoying learning how to toast marshmallows on an open fire, using willow whips as skewers. 

Week 3

Year 4 have been rocking out with Rock Steady Music and learning to play the electric guitar, keyboard and drums.

Fantastic Fun!

Week 2


Our children have been using natural loose parts found in the Bushcraft area to make transient art.  They made pictures of things that are important and special to them.  We worked in teams to make dens to shelter in.

Week 1

Back at school and hard at work.  Welcome Year 4!
