Caring and Sharing... Believing and Achieving Together.

Class 4

Welcome to Class 4! We are located in the centre of the school and also have the oldest children in school our year 5 children. As well as the year 5 children we also have half of the year 4 children with the other half being in Class 3. Within the room there is a whole range of resources for the children to access to support them in their learning whether that be: Maths, English, Reading or Topic.

Our oldest children are responsible for many different roles in school. These include: house captain, prefect, sports leaders and many other areas of leadership to ensure that the school runs smoothly on a daily basis.

Please check back regularly to see updates about the exciting things we have been learning.

Autumn Term 2018-2019

To Infinity and Beyond...

Our Autumn term topic is all about space and planets. We will explore our solar system and use this theme across the curriculum in our English and Maths learning.

Enterprise Week- Moon Rock Chocs

For our enterprise week, we set up our own chocolate factory. During the week we tasted, designed and made chocolates ready for the enterprise sale on Friday. An extra incentive this year was that all the profit made was being donated to Children in Need! In a flash, all of our stock was gone, we just hope that you got he chance to taste some of our products. Look at us all working away below!

Dance by DanceFest

This half term we have been enjoying our dance coach teaching us new skills. Our routines are linked to our topic. We will be sharing our routines with our school community at the end of this half term. Take a look at us in action!

STEM Workshop

The children were tasked with designing the new Worcester Parkway railway station. They were given a list of criteria they had to meet and then build it out of K'NEX. Over the morning, the adults working with the children were watching for pairs that worked with exceptional teamwork, communication and problem solving. Well done to Ella and Isla who will represent the school in the final during the Spring Term.

Our Artwork

We explored the artist Peter Thorpe, who paints pictures linked to space and rockets, and recreated his art using pastels as our art medium. We explored with the pastels, thinking how we could use them in different was and then produced our own pictures for display. After that, we evaluated our work and thought how we might improve.

National Space Centre

We had a Super Start to our topic with a visit to the National Space Centre in Leicester. Everyone had an amazing time exploring the exhibits: being a weather presenter, learning about the moon landing, seeing a life size rocket, being amazed in the planetarium and much more. Look at how much fun we had!
