Nurturing Foundations, Flourishing With God


Year 4

 2022 - 2023

Purple class have been working hard on their Rotary art, which this year is on the theme of health and the body. The children were shown images of viruses through a microscope and have reproduced these, with their own interpretations for their entries. The standard was very high and it will be difficult to choose two pieces to go through to the grand final. Watch this space!

Copper Class would like to welcome Lakshmi to our classroom, the Goddess of wealth and good fortune. They are enjoying learning about Hinduism.

Copper Class enjoyed getting creative, thinking about 'Healthy Minds!'

Year 4 had a wonderful time in the Story Tent today. We enjoyed the story of The Kindest Red and shared what we think kindness is, what kindness says, what kindness does and what kindness does not. The children have been tasked with secret kindness missions to go on this week. Let's see if they choose to show you at home some kindness!



Spelling in action in Year 4!

Year 4 have loved Art this term. We have used Paste Resist to create patterns and then added stitching and sequins to them!

Year 4 have had a fantastic Viking Day at Kent Life. Here are Indigo Class and Copper Class enjoying our coach ride, making brooches, acting out our own Viking voyage on a long ship, learning all about weapons and formations, playing a great game of Tafl and visiting the lovely animals on site. We also met some Vikings around the site who told us about trading and what daily life was like at the time. There was so much to do - even in the rain! Well done Year 4 for a fantastic day.


Indigo Class have been loving Science! Exploring circuits, conductors and insulators over the past two lessons has been fantastic and we have thoroughly enjoyed our learning.

Year 4 enjoyed working delicately like the Anglo Saxons during their Art lesson. Here are our first attempts at Paste Resist.

Last week, we designed our Saxon and Viking sails. Today, we printed them.

In Year 4, the children are becoming confident with their knowledge and recall of the digestive system so today, we set them a challenge. They created abstract art and a wearable digestive system in teams!

Copper Class thoroughly enjoy their regular library time. It is reflecting in their weekly reading too! Keep it up!

Year 4 enjoyed investigating the digestive systems today and then creating their own! 

Year 4 had a great time exploring the inside of their mouths and setting up an experiment with a range of liquids to observe there effects! A great opportunity for some photos!

Feeling festive- Merry Christmas from Indigo Class!

Year 4 enjoyed writing their Kennings poems about The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit in today's RE lesson.

Year 4 had a fantastic time on our Clip n Climb trip this morning!

The children enjoyed all the different climbing walls and challenges, the drop slide, archery, the reflex wall, games on the interactive climbing wall and a range of team-building activities. If only we could start every Tuesday this way!
