Junior School – Year 4

Summer Term News

Once again the Summer Term has proved to be a very busy time in Year 4.

In Food Technology the pupils thought of excellent ideas when designing their own naan bread and tasting it.  Some unique ingredients were included!  As teachers, we were pleased to see the number of children attending a variety of different Clubs had increased this term. We are delighted that so many took up the opportunity to further their Sport, Music or Artistic skills.

This term we enjoyed ‘India Day’. Action aid gave us a memorable day making story bracelets, tasting real Adivasi tea (from the region we were studying in Geography lessons), dressing up in Indian clothing and looking at various artefacts related to the topic.  The children had an amazing day.

An additional treat this term, was our visit to Aylesbury Theatre to watch ‘Gangsta Granny’.  All the children agreed it was a super production.

All of Year 4 were delighted to welcome parents to their second assembly of the year – 4E told us about ‘The people who help us’ and in June, 4I and 4M gave us a great assembly about World Ocean’s Day.

For all of us, our special memory from Year 4 will be our trip to the Frontier Centre.  Although the forecast wasn’t good, we still persevered with all the activities and were rewarded with better weather on Saturday.  Everyone joined in enthusiastically climbing ropes, working as a team during Mission Impossible, swinging on trapezes, toasting marshmallows and singing silly songs around the campfire. We are grateful to Mr Rice, who brought along his guitar, which was a huge hit!

During our last week of Year 4 we had fun running our individual class stalls at the Summer Fete, enjoying our final party together and taking part in numerous celebration activities.

 

 

 

The children have worked very hard and risen to the challenge of many new experiences.

We wish you a lovely restful Summer!
