We are so excited to contribute to the whole school display to honour the Armistice Centenary next Sunday. Year 4 have enjoyed making clay poppies!

We are very proud of our self portraits in the style of Andy Warhol!

Bringing maths lessons to life by playing a game which involved lots of luck but required strategic thinking too. Well done children for playing the game with such enthusiasm!

Year 4 are experts on all things to do with ‘sound’. We made string telephones to explore how sound travels over a distance.

Congratulations to our newly elected school council representatives, Connor and Olivia. Good luck in your new roles, you’ll both be fantastic!

We celebrated World Book Day by making a whole class collage of the centipede from ‘James and the Giant Peach’ by Roald Dahl.

Making frieze frames of our class story ‘The Lost Happy Endings’. What fun we had!
