Year 4 - Elm and Beech Class

This term, our topic is 'Extreme Earth'.

We're learning all about volcanoes, rocks and fossils!


Thank you for all your fantastic efforts with your homework this term. We've particularly enjoyed decoding all your Viking runes, seeing all the different Viking boat designs and trying lots of Viking bread!


In our Computing lessons, we are learning how to programme Microbit computers. Remember you can use the simulator here if you want to practise at home: https://makecode.microbit.org/.


 Welcome back! We hope you all had a lovely half term. We're looking forward to finding out lots about the Vikings this half term!


 A huge well done to everyone in Year Four for all of their efforts with the Harvest Festival performance. Although we weren't able to share it in quite the way we'd hoped, we are so proud of everyone for how they learnt their lines and for their fantastic singing and performing.
