Year 4

Wow! Listen to our African Drumming!

During African Day, each class took part in composing, performing and recording an African drum pattern. The children used iPads which allowed them to play authentic sounding African drums by tapping pads to compose and record their pattern.

African Day

The children throughout the school enjoyed African Day last week. The children came to school dressed in brightly coloured clothes and took part in a range of fun activities.

The morning began with an assembly led by Mrs Innerdale. She told us about her son who is working out in a school in Botswana in Africa at the moment. We are trying to help them fund raise some money to buy football kits, guitars and sports equipment for the children in his school.

The children took part in numerous fundraising activities throughout the day;

As well as some language activities in class with Mrs Innerdale.

Collective Worship

Year 4 took part in a truly lovely collective worship. We created our own prayers and listened to a letter written by St. Paul. It helped us to understand that we should build bridges between us and others.

Year 4 Tag Rugby

Year 4 had a fantastic opportunity to take part in our school tag rugby event. The children developed their skills of running with the ball and passing. We concluded with a mini tournament. Well done Year 4!

Rainforests

Year 4 have been learning all about the rainforest and the many features of rainforests around the world. We decided to look at the Amazon Rainforest in more depth. We have been using map work to investigate South America whilst also learning all about the many layers of the forest.
