Welcome to Year 4
Our class teacher is Miss. McGill and our learning is supported in class by Miss. Barton.
Last year's projects:
Project 3 (Year 3): Is that the way to do it?
Our Learning Expedition in terms 5 and 6 was to create a Punch and Judy-style show to perform to other schools and parents. Our project had 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 use textiles to make hand puppets.
Outcome 3: Practising and perfecting a piece of violin music to act as a backing track for our performance.
Final outcome: We performed our show to a range of real audiences: our parents in an afternoon showing at Becket Primary, the residents of nearby Tamar Court within their residential home, and a performance to the Year 2-4 children at St. George's CE Primary when they kindly invited us to their school.
Project 2 (Year 3): 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.
Project 1 (Year 3): 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 - we will update the site with photographs of this when it happens.
