    Edward Jenner

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    The children were delighted to be surprised this morning by the wonderful people from the Jenner Museum, who came and talked to the children. We even had a special guest appearance from the man himself. He talked the children through the process of when he first tried inoculation to cure the evil that was Smallpox. The children of year 4 will be completing research for about the Great man and learning all about the local hero. We will also think about the Georgian time period, to link with their learning.

    PE Fridays.

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Children in year 4 are missing out on enrichment this term, but are absolutely thrilled to have Mr Panting come in and teach them for P.E. The children started off today playing some games and learning about teamwork. The children showed some great skill and effort, and really impressed Mr Panting. We are looking forward to really developing our skills this term.

    Mythical creatures

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    This term our topic is mythical creatures. We have spent our first couple of days researching and creating pictures of mythical creatures. We searched the internet safely and found some incredible inspiration. The children then focused on experimenting with various drawing techniques, from cross hatching to speckling, and also having a play around with shading. Some amazing creatures have been born in year 4 this week. Well done!

    Christingles

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Children in Year 4 had the opportunity to make Christingles, ready for the KS2 Nativity Church performance. The children learnt the history behind the purpose of the Christingle and learnt that it was introduced to Britain in 1969 (which was new to me!). The children did need to be suitable restrained from eating the left over sweets. The candles are ready to go.

    Haka and Street Dancing

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    The children have spent some time working with Mr O to perform a Haka style war dance. Mr Hart had the privilege of seeing this first hand today. The children showed some excellent moves and scary expressions to really intimidate Mr Hart. They showed some really good skill and gave a great a performance! Well done guys! This was followed by a Street Dance - Dance off. With music released when I was young (Run DMC verses Jason Nevis) children performed their street moves against each other in a dance off. First in pairs, then as a class. Safe to say, we have some really good dancers in Year 4. Very impressive stuff. Picking a winner would've been very hard.

    Trench design

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    To link with our learning about the first world and particularly looking at trenches, the children have been given the option to design a trench from their knowledge. Children have to use their knowledge to design and think about the resources they need. This will be an end of term project to round off our term about the First World War.
