Rubies were really excited to take part in an art workshop today with visiting artist Emma Denning. They each made a unique collage jewel to add to our new school installation. Please click here to see our photos


Welcome to Year 4


Welcome to Year 4! We've had a great start to life in Emeralds and Rubies class and have already demonstrated our creative skills with self-portraits in the style of Pablo Picasso.


This half-term our topic is Europe where we will be studying geographical similarities and differences in the human and physical geography of European countries. We will research capital cities, borders, famous rivers and mountains. In Science, we will study Habitats and Living Things, including gathering, recording and classifying data. This will include classifying animals into groups and considering local and non-local wildlife habitats. We have already been discovering local wildlife in our own Forest School area!


In PE will be focusing on football and ball skills, while in RE children will be learning about Judaism and the special relationship Jews have with God, and Buddhism examining how possible it is for everyone to be happy. PSHE will focus on 'Being Me in My World' and in Music we are focusing on the music of ABBA including the song Mamma Mia.


In English we will be reading Tom's Sausage Lion and using this to write diary entries and persuasive texts. In Maths we are concentrating on place value and addition and subtraction.
