Listen to us doing our call and response activity on Friday!
We are really enjoying our Samba music lessons which we have every Friday afternoon through the Lancashire Music Service. Have a look at our photographs and take a look at us playing a range of musical instruments.

Remembrance Garden


This week at school, we have enjoyed creating our own special remembrance garden in the school playground to honour those who died in WW1. We have painted pebbles to display in the area and we have dedicated a special bench to the fallen soldiers of the war. We are going to use this area as a place to think, remember and reflect.

Clay Poppies

Today we have had an exciting day because we had a special art lesson where we made clay poppies. We learnt techniques to make our poppy and then we were able to experiment with the clay.

Look at the picture below of our final poppy designs. What do you think?

We are writing a Kenning poem this week and last week we looked at Haiku poems. Haiku poems can be made up as long as it has 5 syllables on the first line 7 on the second/middle and five again to end.

We learnt about place value this week and last week. We have been learning to round digits to the nearest 10 and 100 and 1000 for Year 4.



In Geography we have been learning about rivers. So far we have stuck a map in and labelled all the important and well known rivers in the world. We even have names of rivers for our table names.



We are still on the water topic about river Nile and Egypt  and the World War- we are exited!
