Year 4 began their ‘Traders and Raiders’ topic today with a Viking visit. There has been an amazing range of outfits on show this morning across the year group, including some pretty intimidating looking teachers!
The Year 4 WOW day for the ‘Gods and Mortals’ topic went very well on Monday with the children being immersed into the world of the Ancient Greeks. Some amazing costumes were on show, both from the adults and the children!
Year 4 pupils in 4B, 4L and 4D held a performance to showcase their drumming this afternoon. We are very proud of the courage and interdependence that was displayed. It was lovely to see so many parents supporting their efforts. The parents’ performance was great too! We’re looking forward to 4U and 4P’s turn tomorrow!
Year 4 had a super residential this week to Carey Camp. They took part in a wide variety of activities, including shelter building, ropes courses, archery, orienteering and tunnelling. They also learned how to sleep and eat outside! Many thanks to the staff for their positivity and dedication throughout the trip and to all of our pupils for their adaptability, optimism, inter-dependence and courage.
We love it when children rise to a challenge and 4U certainly have! They have smashed the record set last week by 4D by achieving a score of 162 independent reads this week. This means that every child has read at least 5 times during the week. Amazing achievement!
Three of our Year 4 classes experienced the wonders of the Sea Life Centre today, in relation to their ‘Blue Abyss’ topic. There were plenty of gasps and open mouths about what they were witnessing. Our two remaining classes will be the lucky ones tomorrow!
African drumming has returned to QPA! Our Year 4 pupils now have weekly sessions with a music specialist in order to develop their musical skills.
