Spring Term- As part of a homework project, linked to our Spring Term topic, Active Planet, the children created some fantastic volcanoes, using a range of materials. We can't wait to see them erupting!

Autumn Term 2- Thank you all for a fantastic day of Enterprise! The children have worked very hard to produce our products and you have kindly spent your hard earned cash with us today! We are very proud of our children and very thankful for your generosity.

Autumn Term 2- As part of our new topic 'How things work', the children designed and created their own robots. The children came up with some fantastic names for their robots!

Autumn Term 1- History. The children handled a range of artifacts from the Bronze, Iron and Stone Age. Below are their ideas for what the items were used for.

Autumn Term 1- Entry Point. For the entry point to our new topic 'Scavengers and Settlers' we created shelters using natural materials. Here are the children in creating mode!

Autumn 1- During the first week of Year 4, the children completed a number of team building activities. The children are building towers, using different materials, in these photographs. The children could choose whether to build the tallest or strongest tower and they were tested at the end of the session. Some managed to remain although others were not so lucky!


Our Topic during Autumn Term 1 is 'Scavengers and Settlers.' The children will be finding out what our ancestors did in the Stone, Bronze and Iron ages.


During Autumn Term 2, our topic will be 'Inventions that changed the world'. This Design Technology and Science topic will focus on the who. what and when of product design and development and will lead us seamlessly in our Enterprise event, before Christmas. 


Our Topic during the Spring Term is 'Active Planet'.
