This term we are looking at covering famous landmarks, people, and own identity, history of Nottingham and what Nottingham has given the world.

Hopefully we can do some trips to Sherwood Forest, Nottingham City Centre and have visitors into school too.

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

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

Getting to know the new Year 4s😀

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

Take a look at the photos below to see what topics were covered within the last year... You are very lucky as you will be the first year group to cover this topic under the new curriculum...

We have been sewing our sea animals together in DT.

In Science, we investigated how different sounds are made.

Singing head, shoulders, knees and toes in French!

A fantastic day had by all at the Sealife Centre!

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

Lydia from Schools Action Waste Club told us how we can reduce our use of plastics in our lunches.

We enjoyed sharing our sea animal non chronological reports with Year 1.

Thank you to the students of Nottingham Trent Uni who came in to do some sea creature crafts.
