In Year 4, we have started our new topic all about the water cycle and rain!
So far we have planted some rain catchers in the KS2 yard so that we can monitor how much rain falls each week.
We have also used the website, will it rain today? to find out which cities in the UK had rain, so that we could compare the rainfall. Can you remember which city had rainfall?
What are you looking forward to about our new topic?

In A-life we talked about how to keep healthy. The teachers name was miss C. She said that children need 10 hours sleep and we need to look after our hygiene (stay clean and brush our teeth 2 times a day). In the afternoon, we did some exercise. Every body had lots of fun- I loved it! This was my favourite workshop. How do you keep healthy?

KS2 have performed the Christmas show in front of their parents and family. The show is called Superstar and it is about a girl (called Grace) who isn’t very confident but is given the chance to shine as a main part in the show by Miss Harvey. Year 4 sang their song called ‘Please can I have a room?’. We hope you enjoyed our show!
Everyone is getting a chance to shine!
In Year 4L we are all brilliant at looking after one another and looking out for our friends. What makes a good friend Year 4?
Who has already had the friendship award for their seat? Who thinks they will be one of the first to achieve a special award for their friendship? How are you a good friend?
In Year 4 we have been learning all about earthquakes and volcanoes. We learnt that Mount Vesuvius is a famous volcano in Italy that erupted at the time of the Romans over a very famous place called Pompeii. We wrote newspaper reports and imagined what it must have been like to be a Roman experiencing this volcano erupting.
Have a read of Molly’s amazing writing!
Yesterday, Year 4 were visited by Becky from West End of schools. She taught us lots about Poppies and Poems. We know that this year Remembrance Sunday is extra special because it marks 100 years since the end of the First World War in 1918.
We learnt all about recruitment and how soldiers were enlisted to fight in the war.
Here are some pictures from the morning:
