Alex Bell Author Skype

Today, as part of our English unit, we managed to have an amazing experience: Y4 Skyped Alex Bell, the author of the Polar Bear Explorer’s Club!

There were questions galore, ranging from queries about the characters in the book, all the way through to her personal life and pets that she has at her home (two Siamese cats, by the way!). Alex has even provided us with a postcard writing competition, which she will judge the winner of. It was an incredible opportunity, and we are so thankful to Alex for allowing us to speak with her about her journey to become an author.

Rotten Romans – Cinema Trip!

On Tuesday, all of Y4 went to the cinema as part of our cultural capital experiences that we offer to the children. In preparation for our Roman topic in Spring, we watched the Horrible Histories film at Cineworld in Bolton, which was provided for FREE by Cineworld Bolton in liaison with IntoFilm. 

We had an amazing time!

Les jours de la semaine!

We first of all learnt the days of the week through a catchy song and then discussed what children do in schools on those days. We then compared our school system in the UK to the school system in France, with many children divided on which system they prefer.

Ask your child to sing the ‘Les jours de la semaine’ song!


Screen Addiction

Today 4A have been looking at the impact of screen addiction on young children. Their creative elements were tested as they had to create a new product that would help to reduce screen addiction, it’s some very convincing adverts. 

Well done 4A!



Egyptologist Stay and Learn

Today, 4A had an amazing time as part of our Egypt topic: we had our very own Egyptologist come and visit us! He gave us a wonderful insight into the life of Ancient Egyptians and it was an excellent way to round off our topic for this half-term.

We got to go through some amazing new discoveries, discussed how mummies were made with a role-playing activity, before finally inviting parents in to wrap them up like mummies too! 

A huge thank you to Michael and Freya for their hard work today – the session was excellent and the children left talking about it extremely enthusiastically!

Historical Detectives

Last Monday, 4A became historical detectives when researching all about the Ancient Egyptian pyramid building process. They had 16 clues to look at, courtesy of ‘Key Stage History’, and in pairs, they had to decide whether or not ‘slaves’ built the pyramids or not.

The class were not completely unanimous, but they certainly agreed as a class that the slaves did not build the pyramids.

Fabulous work, 4A!
