What a great way to end our Summer half term with an assembly to celebrate the children's success in swimming. Thank you to all adults who attended and we hope you all have a great half term!
Year 4 have been extremely busy this week with a trip from the community dentist and undertaking a science experiment!
The children loved their visit from the dentist who educated them on ways to ensure they are looking after their teeth.
Our science experiment focused on the impact acidic liquids can have on our teeth using egg shells. Both egg shells and tooth enamel contain calcium carbonate and therefore we can use the shells to observe the damage which can be done if we do not take care of our teeth.
Thank you for your continued support as always!
As you are aware, year 4's new project is 'Burps, Bottoms and Bile'. This project is science based and teaches the children all about the digestive system and dental care.
As part of one of our launches for this project, the children had a visit from Morrisons to try a range of healthy foods. They really enjoyed this and the majority tried something new!
Here are some photos showing what we got up to...
As class 7 have been learning about electrical circuits this term, today we have been extremely busy drawing electrical circuits, creating those circuits, making predictions, changing elements to that circuit and discussing what conductors and insulators are!
As you are aware, over the last 2 weeks year 4 have been going swimming in the afternoons. All of the children have made amazing progress and are very proud of themselves! Their positive attitudes and determination has been noticed by the swimming coaches and we, as a school, are so proud of each and every one of them!
As the children have all been graded, a swimming assembly for parents and guardians will be held at a date to be confirmed, once we have received their certificates.
A huge well done again to all year 4 children.
World Book Day

Thank you so much for all your plastic bottle donations and support for parents' day. The children thoroughly enjoyed making their submarine models and learning about buoyancy. Here are some photos from the day:
Thank you for all your plastic bottle contributions that have been sent into school. This will make a huge difference for the children's activity next week.
Please note, as stated on the termly newsletter, parents are invited to spend the afternoon in school with both year 4 classes on Monday 28th January! From 1:30-3:00. We will be following instructions on how to make a submarine. We look forward to seeing you!

Happy New Year from Class 7!
What an amazing start to the year already. The children have shown a great interest in their new topic 'Blue Abyss' which was launched last week at The Deep. Thank you to all adults who contributed towards the trip's cost, the children really enjoyed their experience at the deep and learnt all about life at the Great Barrier Reef.
For our New Year's resolution, Class 7 have decided that we are going to aim for everyone to be a reading star this term. So far, the children have made a great start at this too so thank you for your support at home!
Below is this term's homework menu - children are expected to complete at least one piece of homework per subject area by Friday 15th February.
Each week, spellings will be sent home and added to the class page - so please keep updated with these!
Thank you for your support, it makes a huge difference to your child's learning!

This week, the children in year 4 are designing and making their bath bombs ready to sell at the Christmas fayre on Wednesday 5th December. The children have chosen their own flavouring, colour, label and name for their bath bomb. We decided to make our own bath bombs as this relates well with our 'potions' project and is a perfect Christmas gift for family and friends! We hope to see you there.

This week the children have been learning about the famous William Shakespeare's story of Romeo and Juliet. They have re-told this as a storyboard, came up with alternative endings, written play scripts for their alternative ending and then rehearsed these to perform!
Next week in maths, we are continuing with our new chapter 'multiplication and division' and so any additional support with helping your child with their times tables will benefit them greatly! The children also have their own DoodleMaths log in username and password.
Week 1 (29.10.18-02.11.18)
This week, the children have been looking at states of matter. In this lesson, they were investigating solids, liquids and gases. We identified and compared household items, how the particles vary between different states of matter and some children have even been able to suggest reversible and irreversible changes!
Here is a link to a website that provides further information on this:
A HUGE well done to all of year 4 for their hard work during this first half term, we are very proud of them all! The children have loved learning about Anglo-Saxons and Vikings.
To celebrate, the children held an exhibition as a chance to reflect on their amazing topic work from this half term. We have received great feedback and the children should be very proud of themselves. Here are some photos to share from the exhibition.
We are looking forward to introducing their next topic to them after half term!
The children have been creating their own Anglo-Saxon weapons today, in preparation for their exhibition on Wednesday. They have used what they have learnt about weapons to design their own using a different materials.

Last week, year 4 had a special Anglo-Saxon visitor come to share their knowledge and artefacts with us. We took part in lots of activities such as carving our names using Runes (the Anglo-Saxon alphabet), sketching items used by the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings, learning about their weapons as well as playing games!
Here are a few photos for you to take a look at.
The Viking Man visit
Welcome to Class 7!
This week in Class 7, we have been researching Saxon shore forts and discussing the reasons why they were built on the South-East coast to defend themselves from seaborne invaders. The children have so far thoroughly enjoyed learning about the Anglo-Saxons and how they protected themselves within the forts.
Next week, we will be looking into more detail at the Saxon's daily lifestyles such as; farming, homes, food, crime and punishment.
