Lea Green


Today we went to Lea Green for our activity day, it was very cold and we had to wrap up warm!  When we arrived we went on the buggies, we took turns on the double and single (even Miss Blunden and Mrs Arnold had a go). We split up into two teams called the Ace Arnolds and the Bionic Blundens.  Then we RACED!  We had lots of fun but it was very tiring.  Next we did some teamwork skills using the Giant Earth Ball.  We all got squished, but it wasn't heavy as it was filled with air.  After we got the parachute out and played lots of games we also tried to make it reach the ceiling. After lunch we stayed in our teams and one of us went on the play park while the others went in the caving room.  When we were in the caving room we played climbing limbo (it was harder than it looked). We had a brilliant time at Lea Green and we cannot wait to go again in May!  YEAR 4

After we performed animal poems we chose an animal that lived in the Amazon Rainforest and used the internet to research them.  We then used this information to write our own animal poems.

Friday 16th January 2015

Today we started our poetry unit and we have been looking at poems about rainforest animals.  We had to perform these poems to our class.  Take a look how we did!

Can you guess which rainforest animal we are?!

Take a look at our Jungle Buggies we made in DT.

Antarctica Day

Year 4 would like to say a massive thank you to Miss Pasteur for working with us on our Antarctica morning.  We learnt lots about Antarctica and we even were able to dress up in the polar clothing and become scientists too!


Take a look at the photos from our exciting day!

We have been learning about Antarctica and we have created our own information books on what we have learnt.

We created mini fact files on Animals in Antarctica

We have been learning about the race to the pole. We compared Scott's and Amundsen's journies using a PowerPoint
