End of Term News-Year 4

This Autumn the pupils have been working extremely hard in Maths, English and Science subjects as well as Art, DT, Food Technology, Games and other lessons, making it a very busy time for the pupils in Year 4.  In October, to further their experience of Victorian life, they took part in a day trip to St John’s Museum in Warwick, discovering life as a Victorian school child, as well as what it was like for servants to work in a laundry. They also had the opportunity to write with pen and ink as well as try their hand at stitching calico.

Homework projects have been presented to a very high standard and have included their favourite poems, carrying out super scientific experiments, as well as designing their own brochure of a Mediterranean country.  All of the pupils have really enjoyed their first swimming lessons of Year 4, with super progress being made by everyone. The highlight of their week has been Golden time!

All of Year 4 have welcomed their parents to class assemblies which included 4E explaining the role of St Andrew and other interesting features of Scotland.  4I reflecting on the importance of Remembrance Day and 4H treating us to a Victorian assembly, informing us about the jobs children had to do, as well as what they were taught at school.

The culmination of the year was the Year 3/4 Christingle service.  The children sang beautifully and told us all about The Children’s Society.

We wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year.
