Summer Term 2018
Year 4 are learning about "The Rainforest". As an introduction to their topic of 'Rainforests', the children have studied types of leaf and looked in detail at the shapes and colours of them. They then painted their own leaves to be used in the classroom display.
Careful observational art work for the classroom display.

"Storms & Shipwrecks" are the basis for our learning this term and we started by building shelters, finding a safe way to evacuate the school after being hit by a storm and learning about different types of disasters.
Surviving a disaster!
We visited Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and explored H.M.S. Victory. We learned about what it was like during a battle on board a ship and compared warfare today and throughout history. We also learned about the different jobs on board The Victory.
