Discovery Class preparing for battle with Alexander Class on the last day of Term 3. Amazing shield designs!

Term 3: Pneumatic Toy designs - The children have had fun learning what a pneumatic toy is and how to create a linkage system using tube, tape and a balloon. They also learnt all about the use of compressed air and the pushing force that is needed to open the monsters mouth.

Term 2: First recorder lesson ever! Lots of loud squeaks were heard. Towards the end of the lesson, there was so much more control and it sounded beautiful. More to follow.

Term 1: Design and Technology - This term we have been learning about seasonal fruits and vegetables around the world and here at home. We made delicious apple and pear crumble, amazing vegetable tarts Japanese fruit skewers that received mixed reviews. We learnt all about equipment safety as well as food hygiene. Lots of fun was had by all!

Due to the lovely British weather, we had to abandon our outdoor session and dance in the class. Lots of fun was had by all completing the Wake and Shake routine as well as several loved Just Dance songs.

Year 3 and 4 Spelling List



Listening to stories is an invaluable way to increase understanding of vocabulary as well as developing good listening skills. 


Here are a couple of websites which offer free audio books for children to listen to. This might be instead of reading aloud to a parent or in addition! (It is still important to hear your child read at least every few days).
