Term One


The children use the scales displayed on maps and their maths learning to calculate the food miles of many of the foods that we import to our country.


They have taken part in large scale team building games as a part of their OAA (outdoor adventure activities) learning. The children take part in team building games and make bridges to safely transport their team across the lava! They also had to take a detour to rescue a teammate from the lava monster!


In Art, they have practiced sketching and showing proportion through the use of tone. They went on to make some interesting collages, too.


The children work as a team to make a human machines, that must be programmed step by step.


Term Two


Children made body percussion music inspired by the rainforest using claps, clicks, taps and slaps. They then used these compositions to inspire a rainforest collaboration using tuned and untuned percussion instruments.


The kids made a wattle and daub wall using the same method that Anglo Saxon settlers in Britain would have used.

Design and Technology:

Year four explored the properties that ensure stability by experimenting with 3D frame structures. They then designed and constructed a pavilion based on the 2015 Milan Expo.
