Year 4 kicked off the Summer Term with an introduction to our new novel led topic for the book Why the Whales came. We spent the day researching and creating fact files on "the unicorns of the sea" Narwhal Whales. Then in the afternoon, we rolled our sleeves up and created our very own clay models of these intriguing mammals that occupy the Artic Oceans on our planet.
St Georges Day - 23rd April
To celebrate the day of our Patron Saint we experienced what it was like to live in South Africa during The Apartheid. Any children with blue eyes were told they were going to be given preferential treatment for the rest of the year purely because of the colour of their eyes. We had very mixed emotions about these new rules and their thoughts and feeling were recorded. We then looked at Democracy and how the laws and regulations are created in this country. In the afternoon, we designed and painted a WW1 picture and focused on the relevance of why poppy's are sold on remembrance day.
The Royal Wedding - 21st May
In year 4 we celebrated the Royal Wedding of Harry and Meghan in style. We had a special British values day where we researched facts about the happy couple and their big day as well as discovering information about the rest of the Royals. We were even joined by a couple of special guests who helped out with the tasks!!
At lunch time we held a whole school royal banquet in the playground. There was bunting, royal place mats, Union Jacks and topped off with the children's own designed crowns. What a fun day this was!!
Sea Life Centre, Birmingham - 15th June
With our current topic there was nowhere more appropriate for Year 4 to visit that the Sea Life Centre. Here we were able to test our new found knowledge from our Science and Geography lessons as we explored the many sea creatures from our planet. We got up close and personal with penguins, sea horses, sharks and a even a giant turtle, all animals we would normally only get to see on TV or in a book. Ellis, who ran the behind the scenes tour, even expressed his amazement with how we were able to confidently answer all of the questions he set us! A great day was had by all which was topped off with a visit to the gift shop where most purchased some souvenirs from the day.
Good to be Green party - 18th June
The latest good to be green reward was a fantastic beach party. The pupils were able to enjoy playing in the sand building castles, getting soaked in the paddling pools and playing sports with their friends. Everyone had a fabulous time, especially those who had the buckets of water poured over them!!! We can't wait to discover what the next reward party will be, year 4 say it will have to be really good to beat this one!!!!
Year 6 Vs Staff rounders - 2nd July
Today saw the inaugural Staff V Year 6 rounders match. Despite the high spirits and great respect shown by both teams there could only be one winner... The staff members! The current Year 5's have got a lot of training to be ready for next years showdown!
Sports Day - 2nd July
Conditions were perfect for our annual Sports Day event. Year 4 showed great resilience in all events with everyone trying their best, which was backed up with a cacophony of support from each house.
