This term we will be looking at India and how the inspirational people of India dealt with conflict. We will be looking at their culture and making our own encyclopedia! In science our theme is Sound, looking at how we hear, how the ear works and knowing each technical word for the parts of the ear. We will be doing lots of Art and DT around these topics. 


We will continue with our Sheriff's Challenge and fitness with Miss Baker's workouts! 

Wellbeing is a big part of our classes and this will include: Yoga, creative work and reflections of ourselves.

TED activities to look forward to..

We looked at what sustainable development is and how we can reduce our carbon footprint.

Unfortunately we couldn’t go on a trip into Nottingham so we did The Owl Hunt around school learning about different landmarks.

Science - learning all about electricity!

Bansky inspired Art!

DT - making Nottingham themed Monopoly boards.

We like to keep fit and healthy in Year 4. Sheriff’s challenge 20/21 off we go!

Our Nottingham timeline.

The children researched all about Nottingham. Who knew Nottingham was famous for so many things!

We used different mediums to create some very effective Remembrance day art.

Fantastic work on Yoga

Roman numeral Maths

The children had to think of lots of positive adjectives to describe themselves and then turned the words into a piece of art.

Getting to know the new Year 4s😀
