The Anderton Centre 2018

On Wednesday 9th May, Year 4 went to The Anderton Centre for a one night residential. They had the opportunity to take part in canoeing and den building. They were also shown how to make a campfire and were treated to toasting marshmallows. The children took part in crate stacking, low ropes and orienteering. We really did have a fabulous time and each and every child made St Mary’s proud! Well done Year 4!


Goodbye Logan

As we broke up for our Easter half term, Logan left our class to have a new adventure with his family in Arizona, America. We wish you every luck in everything you do. We will miss you very much. Please keep in touch with us!

Science in the snow.

Today we took our science lesson outside and investigated the different particles in melting and cooling. We made snowmen and covered some with a jumper and some without. We are then going to make observations today and tomorrow to see the results of our test. We will let you know how we get on!

The Romans Workshop

Alex from the Schools’ Library Service delivered a starter lesson for our next  topic of The Romans. The children really enjoyed all the information Alex gave them. The workshop really ignited the children’s interest and it left them wanting to know more. Alex brought along Roman artifacts for the children to have a look at and have a go at sketching them, learning what each one was used for. The children loved trying on the Armour of a Roman Soldier- they said it was VERY heavy.

During Green Day we visited The Waste & Recycling Centre where we learnt all about how to recycle correctly and save our environment.

Your homework this week is to discuss with your parents all about our school trip and complete the leaflet attached to your Superhero Certificate and bring to school on Monday 16th October. Please leave a comment  below on anything that you remember from our trip for example, facts about recycling, what you liked and disliked or even what items go in the correct bins. 







Welcome to our Year 4 Blog.

Here you will find what we have been learning about and you will be able to see all the amazing, fun things we are doing- please feel free to comment on our posts.

Highlights to look forward to this half term include learning about the Aztecs, having a greater understanding of our family and the different kinds of love we have (RE).  During our Geography we will be enhancing our map skills. We will be having a look at Eliot the Superhero in English. Maths-  will be working on place value, decimals, shape and time, problem solving and reasoning and much more throughout our lessons.

Wow what a busy term!
