Half term highlights

Monday 29 May 2017

Yet another half term has passed and what a busy one it has been!

Year 4 has been full of learning with lots of fun along the way. Here are some of the highlights from the past few weeks.

In English, we have been planning and writing our own descriptive settings. The standard of writing has greatly improved across the class. Children who have previously found writing quite a challenge were inspired and motivated by the creative way in which we prepared our work.

Our new topic, ‘Natural Disasters’, is proving to be a popular one. The children have so far learnt about the Earth’s layers, volcanoes and the impact they can have on an environment. Our recent trip to Magna was a big success and full of fascinating facts. We even got to see a ‘fire tornado’! Some children have managed to carry their descriptive writing in topic lessons: “Boiling, hot lava charged down the rocky sides of the volcano like soldiers running into battle.”

Safety Week was jam-packed with activities and visitors: Dogs Trust, E-Safety workshop, safety awareness in various settings and bike safety to name but a few. There are a few photos below.

Here are some recent quotes from the children:

Below are a selection of photos from the last half term. Take a look.

Enjoy the half term break and we look forward to seeing you all for the final term of Year 4!
