Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect all staff, visitors and volunteers to share this commitment.
If you have any concerns regarding the safeguarding of any of our pupils please contact one of our Designated Safeguarding Leads: Mrs Sarginson, Mrs Hill or Mrs Dixon
Please see the safeguarding section of our website under Policies > Safeguarding.
Week beginning 7th October
This week we have been creating mood boards for art, based on Roman sandals, and we have had our Learning together session with parents.
Week beginning 30th September
This week as part of our sound topic in science we made string telephones and in art we have made models of Roman sandals.
Week beginning 23rd September
This week we took part in a walk and talk history lesson, where we had to research and discover for whom life was more pleasant in Roman Britain.
Week beginning 16th September
In science this week we have made pan pipes to see if the length of a straw affects the pitch. As part of our drama-based English activity we created a conscience alley for Hogarth (a character from The Iron Man) using modal verbs to ask him questions.
Week beginning 9th September
We have made a great start to Year 4 in class 9! We were investigative journalists, using modal verbs to as questions in english. In science, we made drums and 'dancing rice' as part of our sound investigation into vibrations. We took part in an enquiry-based information hunt as we tried to discover why the Romans invaded Britain.
In history this half term we will be looking at the Roman invasion of Britain. Around 2,000 years ago, Britain was ruled by tribes of people called the Celts. But this was about to change. For around a century, the Roman army had been building an Empire across Europe. Now it was coming for Britain! In AD 43, the full might of the Roman army landed on the beaches in Kent. Over the next year it battled inland, storming through hillforts and chopping down anyone who stood in their way. The Romans wanted Britain's precious metals. However, we will explore the fact that they weren't just a destructive force - they built new forts, new settlements and roads. They spread their culture, language and laws.
Our new science topic is sound. We will explore how sounds are made when objects vibrate. What happens in your ear as vibrations enter. We will find out more about how sound travels, pitch, volume and man-made sounds.
