The Journey of a Water Droplet

Continuing with our Water Cycle theme, we wrote some FANTASTIC stories from the perspective of a water droplet and its journey through evaporation, condensation, precipitation and collection. Mrs Harrison was very impressed! Here are our published pieces…

World Book Day

On Friday 2nd March, Year 4 (along with the rest of the school) celebrated World Book Day. This year we chose to celebrate difference, with a Mr Men and Little Miss theme. We think you’ll agree we look great! Which one would you be?

The Water Cycle
Over the last few weeks, Year 4 have become water cycle experts. We have been extremely busy writing explanation texts linked to our science topic (states of matter). We have learnt about evaporation, condensation, precipitation, collection and transpiration! Why don’t you ask us all about them?!


Here’s some pictures of us with our final published pieces for our young authors folders. We could display them however we liked. Aren’t we creative?


Year 4’s Learning Together Morning

What a great start to the week! Family and friends were invited in to school to share a ‘Learn Together Morning’ with Year 4. We were very excited to share what we’ve been learning about this half term, and carry out some activities with our visitors. It was a very enjoyable morning for all, with lots of super learning taking place!


We furthered our learning about the water cycle, found out about different types of clouds and studied symmetry when looking at The Taj Mahal. Thank you to everyone who supported us! Here’s just a taster of the morning...


What better way to wind down after a very busy term than with Christmas crafts, a board game afternoon and a Christmas party. The fun never stops in Year 4 as you can see!

Roman Art

What better way to end our fantastic Romans topic than by having Time Trips in to Year 4 to complete some Roman art workshops with the children. The children thoroughly enjoyed the workshops and created some fantastic pieces of art work.

Firstly, we looked at Roman coins and learnt how to emboss foil. Then we worked as teams to create some fantastic Roman mosaics. We think you’ll agree what we produced were amazing. If anyone now needs their bathroom tiled or a new mosaic floor, we are experts at making cement and tiling! Here’s just a few pictures of the day …

The Rotten Romans

Year 4 have thoroughly enjoyed their first history topic of the year – The Rotten Romans. The children have been encyclopaedias, sharing a wealth of knowledge. Mrs Harrison has been blown away by all the chilli homework brought in too. It’s amazing! We need a museum to store all of the weapons and armour the children have made!


Throughout the topic, we have learnt so many new things – key facts about the Roman period, Roman Gods and Goddesses, Hadrian’s wall, and lots, lots more! We have written instructions about how to become Roman Gladiators and have even made Roman roads out of chocolate, biscuits and custard. Yum! To conclude our topic, we performed an AMAZING class assembly to family and friends. What a great way to start the year! Here’s just a few highlights …
