Year 4 – Bonsai & Poplar

Welcome to the Spring term with Miss Powell and Mrs Carlislesmiley

This term Year 4's topic is Save Our World. We have lots of fun activities, visitors and trips planned for the term ahead. (Hopefully - if COVID allows!)

This term we will be looking at environmental threats affecting different continents - deforestation in South America, melting ice caps in Antarctica, the illegal wildlife trade and poaching in Africa, coral bleaching on the reefs in Australia and plastic pollution affecting the oceans. We will be doing lots of Art and DT around these topics. 

We have organised a company to zoom us about electricity safety (yes, we did this last term but no harm in revisiting and reminding ourselves how important safety!)


We will continue with our Sheriff's Challenge and fitness with Miss Baker's online 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😀
