Take a look at what we have been learning about below.

World Book Day 2023 

In 4LR we brought in some of our favourite books to share. We then created alternative front covers based on these.


We took part in a very competitive World Book Day quiz and code breaking challenges and really enjoyed making our own monster bookmarks! 

NUSTEM visit 


We had a fantastic visit from Mel at NUSTEM who carried out a workshop with the children all about being a Solar Physicist. They created some amazing light spectrum collages and had to identify the different gases in different stars.
To learn more about how NUSTEM support us in school visit:

Santa Traps!


We made our own Santa Traps as part of our Autumn DT project by using our electricity knowledge from our Science topic. 

We tested them out and each one was a huge success.

Halloween Day 

We had a lovely day dressed up in our scary outfits. We made some witches wreathes and even done a little bit of apple bopping. We had great fun.

Roman Day!


We an amazing day!

We began our day by meeting a centurion, Lucius Marcellinus. He showed us a range of Roman equipment, discussed the Roman invasion and experienced life on a Roman camp!


We made Roman bread and tasted hardtack too!


We worked in groups to become history detectives. We handled a range of Roman artefacts and thought about what they could be used for.


To end the day we experienced some legionary training! We practised using swords and shields as well as practising marching in time! We also performed a testudo! 

The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane


The magical story of the adventures of a lost toy rabbit from a New York Times bestselling author, twice winner of the Newbery Medal. Abilene loves her blue china rabbit, but Edward Tulane is extremely vain and only loves himself. On a voyage from New York to London, Edward falls overboard and from there finds himself on an amazing journey. He travels with tramps, works as a scarecrow, comforts a dying child ... and finally learns what it is to truly love.


We have enjoyed reading Edward Tulane and have completed a wide range of work related to it.



Super Scientists!



We have enjoyed our electricity topic so far this term. We have explored how to make a circuit, including how to break a circuit. We also discovered how we can add a switch to a circuit to make a bulb go on and off. 

Miss Anderson had a problem…. all of the circuits she made didn’t work! We had to work in teams to solve the problem with each circuit! We made excellent electricians! 

We experimented with different materials to find out which materials make the best conductors and which make the best insulators.



Christmas Party


We had a fantastic time at our Christmas Party with our friends playing party games and dancing to our favourite songs!

Exploring Roman Numerals 


As part of our maths and history topics we were sent a challenge by the Roman Emperor Julius Caesar. We had to use our history and maths knowledge to decode the secret messages and find the hidden Roman treasure 

Spooky Day 

Take a look at our spooky costumes! 


Exploring Electricity


Our first Science topic this year is "Electricity". We have really enjoyed putting all of the components together to make working circuits and problem solving to find out why certain circuits don't work 

The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane

We are really enjoying reading our class novel this term. Take a look at some of the amazing work we have completed so far. 

The Daily Mile

We have really enjoyed taking part in the daily mile on our new running track! We are always challenging ourselves to beat our previous record.

The Heart and the Bottle


During our first week of Year 4 we read the book "The Heart and the Bottle" by Oliver Jeffers. We talked about all the different emotions the girl in the story felt and even wrote letters of advice to help her. We explored what it means to be curious and why curiosity is so exciting - asking our own questions and planning our very own curiosity trips.
