Cadbury World


To celebrate the end of our Chocoholics topic, we visited Cadbury World in Birmingham! We had such an amazing day! We were able to visit the factory and watch a demonstration of how chocolate was made over 100 years ago before all of the factory's machinery was invented. We got to visit the Amazon rainforest and discover how chocolate is made from bean to bar. We also wrote our names in chocolate too! To top it all, we all got to sample some chocolate with our two favourite toppings!


After lunch, we visited the 4D cinema, where we wore 3D glasses and our chairs moved like a rollercoaster while we watched a chocolate animation! This was one the best parts of the day!


Athletic Agility


This week, we had a visit from coaches Alex and Dean from CSET to lead Athletic Agility stations to test our sporting skills! We had to throw a weighted ball as far as we could, balance on a beam, complete speed bounces and many more challenges!

Mighty Metal Discovery!


To start Term 4, we made a discovery in the wildlife area! Lots of strange, metal items had been left behind by something over half term. We used our detective skills to see if we could figure out what they could be. It turns out that the Iron Man had crash landed onto the school grounds! 

Roman Orienteering


We used our maths knowledge in our history lesson today. We were given the task to search the playground for Roman clues. We found the Roman clues and had to discover the value of each image to help us answer some addition problems! 

What a Wonderful World


As part of Black History Month, Year 4 have taken inspiration from Louis Armstrong's 'What a Wonderful World' and written their own versions of the song.

Forest School


This term, each year group was lucky enough to have two sessions with Mrs Millman in Forest School! We had such a good time learning how to work as a team, problem solve and explore the wildlife area!

Cross Country


This term, we took part in our first CSET Virtual Competition against other schools! Alex and Dean, two CSET coaches, came in to demonstrate how to complete the cross country course. Each team member ran a total of 600m each. We did brilliantly and really enjoyed it!

Becoming travel writers


We have been learning how to write persuasively. In order to see how adverts persuade us, we had a look through lots of different travel brochures to learn how the writers try to convince us to book with them!

Headings and subheadings


We have been grouping information all about our Roman topic under the current subheadings to create our own information pages! 



In English, we have been learning how to use alliteration to make our descriptions more exciting! We used pictures of various settings and wrote alliterative phrases to describe them with a partner. smiley

Our Dreams


To start the year, we have been thinking about our dreams and aspirations for the year ahead.
