Children of the World Project Homework

We have been so impressed by the quality of the children’s homework this term. We have sampled a delicious Greek salad from Lucy, a delightful paella from Mimi and fabulous sweet treats made by Darina, Puff Puffs from Chloe and biscuits from Betsy. We were so lucky! 
The quality of the written work and presentations have been phenomenal too. Amazing effort Year 4!



Today we had a lot of fun learning about staying safe on the internet. We discussed the issue of ‘influencers’ and the possible effects, both positive and negative. Special congratulations to Blake and Lexi, who were awarded certificates for their costume creativity. 

Circuits with the Royal Navy

We were so fortunate to have Steven and Chris from the Royal Navy in class this morning. The children had such fun creating a range of different circuits using various components. 


Autumn Term 2023

Please see the documents below for a more detailed coverage of this term. 

The Year 4 team would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy new year! 
We thank you all for your kind cards and gifts, we really appreciate it. 

We are excited by the term ahead. Our new theme will be: ‘Children of the World’.

It was lovely to see so many parents and carers joining us this morning for Year 4’s ‘People on the Move’ assembly. What an entertaining half hour! 

Well done Year 4. You spoke every word so clearly and the audience really enjoyed your music, dancing, art, history storytelling, poetry and prayers. There was tremendous teamwork on show and it was inspirational to see how each one of you played your role with such thought and care. 

Wildwood at Escot!

We had the best day at Escot today! The sun was shining, we went on a woodland adventure walk where we foraged for stinging nettles (and ate them), saw numerous animals like artic foxes, owls, wolves and wild boar.

During the afternoon the children spent time in the Anglo-Saxon village and carried out woodwork activities, baked bread, ground flour, went to the forge to help make a metal brooch and so much more!

Anglo-Saxon Shelter Building

The children had great fun designing and making their Anglo-Saxon shelters! Their end products are wonderful!

These beautiful angels will look stunning on our Christmas cards and gifts. Please send your artwork back to school when parents have completed the form. 

Anglo-Saxon themed day!

The children enjoyed being Anglo-Saxons for the day. They wore their wonderful costumes that they made for homework, prepared a vegetable stew and oatcakes, attempted to light the fire using flint and steel and enjoyed our feast around the fire, while sharing stories and riddles. A wonderfully authentic day! Of course we had to toast marshmallows too! smiley

States of Matter!

The children loved heating different materials and investigating what happened. We discovered that chocolate was a reversible reaction because with heat it changed from a solid to a liquid and then reset to a solid again when cooled. Some reactions couldn’t be changed back, like eggs. These were irreversible.

The Year 3 and 4 classes had so much fun visiting the Space event at the Plymouth Piazza. They looked at the colossal 72ft. replica of the LauncherOne rocket, had virtual reality experiences and took part in space related activities.

6.9.23. Our first swimming lesson was a great success and we’ve impressed everyone with our wonderful manners and hard work in our first day as ‘Year Fours’!

The cooking apples are beginning to drop from the tree in the playground. I wonder what we could make? Let us know if you have a delicious recipe at home. 

In our afternoon brain break today, Mrs Dean was amazed by our dancing talent!
