This week in Year 4 we launched our new 'Book champion' competition. The children have a week to submit a book review about their favourite book where they must detail characters, plot and themes.

The winner gets a certificate, a hot chocolate and their very own book to take home with them. Lets get reading!

Roman Empire

Our new History topic in Year 4 this term is the Romans. To help us understand how the Empire became so big, we ordered key events into chronological order, which we know means in order of when they happened. We are so excited to continue our learning about the Romans.

World Book Day 2020!

To celebrate World Book Day, we celebrated Bedtime Stories! We came to school in our pyjamas and cosied up with some hot chocolate, whilst our teachers read us a story. EYFS and Y1 went to the library to share some books and KS2 did a piece of writing about the book called 'The Journey'. Y6 read some stories to their buddies - a great day!

Y3 Maths

Today in Maths we started looking at measuring the perimeter of an object. We discussed what the perimeter is – it is the outside or the edge of an object or place. We discussed various measurement depending on the size of the object. We then had a go at measuring various objects in the class and yard with our rulers, meter sticks and a trundle wheel. A trundle wheel is used to measure in meters and is particular good to use when measuring big objects or places.
