Welcome to Year 4
We hope everyone had a lovely Christmas holiday. During this very busy term we will travelling through time back to Roman Britain. Lots of our subjects will be linked with our history topic, such as creating our own story from another world through The Legend of the Lost Keys.
PE will be on a Wednesday afternoon, however PE kit is expected in school at all times.
Year 4 quarry trip
On Friday 26th January, Year 4 finally went on an educational visit to Stanway Quarry after waiting over a month due to bad weather postponing the date in December. This was for our geology work we were doing in Science. To begin with, the children had a quick briefing on health and safety. The two classes then split off and did separate activities. Half of Year 4 learnt about the different machinery, vehicles and types of stone found at the quarry. The other half watched a short video on how the quarry has developed over time and how they reach out to different businesses internationally. The two classes then switched to take part in the other activity. We even had enough time to watch a piece of machinery in action! It was a very cold, but fun afternoon. Everyone had a brilliant time and they may now be asking you to take them to Diggerland!
Safer Internet Day 2018
Wednesday 7th February 2018 was Safer Internet Day across the school. We discussed many things and did several different activities. We discussed how to stay safe online, different pieces of technology to access the internet and different apps available on some a lot of devices. We performed a piece of drama in the afternoon to show others what some dangers of the internet are. In the morning, we created a "pledge" to stay safe online. Some examples can be seen below. The children had a great day and learnt a lot about how to be safer on the internet!
