Welcome to Year Four

This year, in Year Four the class teachers are Mrs Holding and Mrs White (4 Lowry), Mrs Douglas (4 Picasso) and Mr Lancaster (4 Renoir). Mrs Torpey and Mrs Bierne, who are our teaching assistants, will be working alongside. We are also lucky enough to have Mrs Archer teaching Spanish to each class for an hour a week, as well as Pacesetters covering PE and Wellbeing on a Wednesday afternoon.

Frontier Centre May 2018

Year 4 had a fantastic time at Frontier Camp at the beginning of the month. We were all able to push ourselves out of our comfort zone to try something new and exciting! We took part in abseiling, canoeing, the maze, the adventure playground and archery. Here are some pictures of our time there.

 

Please try and add comments to our pictures. We would love to know your thoughts!

1st week back!

We have had a really busy first week back in year 4 which has been jam packed full of wonderful learning. We developed our understanding of scaling up and down in Maths. We learnt all about different types of pasta and created our own spaghetti and tagliatelle with Jason the chef. We also went outside to create our own Djembe drum rhythms in the glorious sunshine!

 

DT - Making Lift Towers

Whilst learning about Northampton, we designed and made our own Lift Towers. The design feature that we had to think about was the material that we would use to lift a 400g weight up the tower on a pulley system. We tested ribbon, string and other materials. We also designed new exteriors to our lift towers, thinking about how we could make them aesthetically pleasing. Have a look at our journey below.

Sports Relief!

To celebrate Sports Relief we all took part in an assault course! We had so much fun! Have a look at our pictures!
