It has been another fabulous week in 4H! As well as our usual learning, we celebrated the Queen's platinum Jubilee in style on Wednesday! We learnt all about Queen Elizabeth II and compared her reign to the reign of King Alfred the great who fought for England against the Vikings! It was a brilliant day that was thoroughly enjoyed by all!

What a wonderful week we have had in 4H! The children have had a lot to do but have shown perseverance and resilience throughout the week- I am very proud! As part of our maths work, we took part in a problem solving workshop this week! It was a fantastic session and the children took a lot from it. I was impressed with the team work shown by all members of the class. They communicated clearly with each other and made sure that all member of the team were included. Well done 4H!

As always it has been a busy week in 4H! I wanted to say a huge well done to 4H for an amazing effort in our TT rock  stars competition! Practise has definitely made progress! This half term in P.E, year 4 are learning all about cricket. Over the past few weeks, they have been practising different batting shots. Today they played a game in groups of 4, to see who could get the most hits by practising their different shots! 

Week 2 (3rd-6th May)

Reader of the week- Cham

Achievers of the week- Reuben & Jessica


First of all, I would like to say a huge well done for the effort that 4H put into their home learning challenges over the holidays! I was blown away with the massive effort that had been put in! It was clear that all of the children had retained their new learning perfectly! Thank you to parents and carers for supporting the children with their home learning!


This week, as always, has been a super busy week! Today we started to reflect on our value this half term which is LOVE. We discussed the different ways in which we can show love to each other and the environment in which we live. We looked at some famous quotes about love and chose our favourite ones to display in our class book.

In science this week, we have set up an exciting eggperiment! We are learning about the effects of different liquids on our teeth. Before I explain more though, I must add that no teeth were harmed in the setup of this investigation!

We set up our comparative and fair test using water, fanta and orange juice. We then made some fantastic predictions about what would happen to each of the different teeth in the liquids. We have used eggs as the shell of an egg mimics the hard enamel protection in human teeth. 4H wanted to find out if covering the eggs in toothpaste enabled more protection from the liquids. Next week, we will look at our results and make conclusions about what we have learned from this.
