Class 4’s Trip to Openzone @ The Word

Everyone in Class 4 had a fantastic time visiting Openzone @ The Word this week. We had fun using 2Create on the laptops to design an outfit for Barnaby Bear and even made our own story with moving characters! Then we visited the green screen room to record a video all about Barnaby Bear’s travels. We went to London, France, China and Australia. 🙂

Class 4 also did brilliantly in their assembly all about ‘being healthy’. Lots of wonderful acting and singing. Well done, Class 4!

Running Track

In Class 4 we have had lots of fun using the brand new running track. It is great for keeping our brains active and keeping us fit!


In literacy we have been learning about the prefix ‘un’. We know that it changes the meaning of a root word.

We had fun matching cards with root words to their corresponding prefix words and adding the words to sentences.

Fabulous France

Class 4 have been learning all about France this week as part of our ‘Barnaby Bear’ topic. We learned that the capital city of France is Paris. We also found out about the flag of France, French food, and famous landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower.

Marvellous Materials

This week was British Science Week. Class 4 carried out out a science investigation to find out which material would be the best to use to make a pair of curtains for the three bears, after Goldilocks ripped their old curtains when she tried to escape out of the window!

We tested five different materials – paper, foil, plastic, wood and fabric.

We held the materials up to the light to find out whether they were transparent or opaque.

We tried bending the materials to find out if they were flexible or rigid.

We pulled and stretched the materials to find out if they were strong.

Our findings showed that the fabric was the best material to use as it was soft, opaque, flexible and strong.

Mother’s Day Assembly

What a fantastic Mother’s Day assembly highlighting the importance of saying thank you to our mums and all of the ladies who love and care for us. Class 4 worked so hard to make it the best assembly yet.

All of the children would like to say a big “Happy Mother’s Day” for Sunday. 😊

Visit to St Hilda’s Church

Class 4 had a great time visiting St Hilda’s Church as part of this terms ‘Christian Church’ topic in RE. They were so excited to learn all about the various church artefacts and asked Father Chris lots of interesting questions.

Stained Glass Windows

As part of our ‘Christian Church’ topic in RE, we have been learning all about church artefacts. We looked at a range of stained glass windows and designed our own.
