Project 3: Is that the way to do it?

We are the Year 4 class at Becket Primary School.  Our teacher is Mr. Davis and our learning is also supported in class by Miss. Barton and Mrs. Phillips.  On Thursday afternoons, Mrs. Raggett teaches us.

Our Learning Expedition in terms 5 and 6 is to create a Punch and Judy-style show to perform to other schools and parents.  Our project has three parts:

Outcome 1:  To write a script for our performance.  We will split into groups and write scripts for short performances of traditional tales such as Goldilocks and the Three Bears, the Three Little Pigs and Jack and the Beanstalk.

Outcome 2: We will work with a carpenter to make wooden puppets.

Outcome 3: Practising and perfecting a piece of violin music to act as a backing track for our performance.


Project 2: Are You Like Me?

We wrote to schools and organisations all over the world to ask them questions about what it is like to live where they do.  We had some fantastic replies from people about where they live and work - thank you to those who worked with us on this.  Some of our projects are below.  If you have any more information that we could use to answer some of our original questions, you can still contact us at our class email address:

What is it like to live near a mountain?

What is it like to be a famous singer?

What is dancing?

What is it like to be a gymnast?


What is it like to live in Poland?

What is it like where you live by the seaside?

How do you care for animals (and what is the area near your zoo like)?

What is it like to study near a Premier League football stadium?

How do you play rugby? 

Project 1: What is at the bottom of our pond?

We began the year by exploring our pond.  It is located at the front of the school and was built many years ago.  It has become very overgrown.  We worked together to plan how to change the pond into a fantastic learning resource for the school.  We finished the project by presenting our ideas to a panel of guests from Big Worle who have very kindly agreed to donate a significant amount to the school for the pond redevelopment.

Work is due to start on the pond in May - we will update the site with photographs of this when it happens.
