Class 4

Welcome to Class 4!

Spring 2

Our topic this term is Animals. We will be linking our learning  to ‘The Big Book of Beasts’ by Yuval Zommer.

Spring 1

Our topic this term is Toys. We will be learning about old and new toys and linking this to the book ‘On Sudden Hill’.

Heart Smart

During our Heart Smart learning we have been thinking about how words of encouragement can build ourselves and others up to feel confident and positive. We wrote positive messages onto sticky labels, which we then stuck onto Duplo to build towers of encouragement.




We have learnt that algorithms are simple sets of instructions followed by computers to achieve a task. We had a go at following Miss Cracknell’s instructions – we had to ensure that we were very precise!

Take a look at our best robot poses!


We have been learning about dynamics and texture and had a go at making music with everyday items.

Outdoor Area

We have been making the most of our outdoor area  to continue our learning. We have been investigating through role-play what it would be like to own or visit a toy shop.


In class 4 we have been learning about human and physical features in Geography. We worked together in groups to decide whether features were human or physical.


Autumn 2

Our topic for Autumn 2 is Florence Nightingale. We will be learning about her life and the impact she had upon hospitals and the treatment of patients.

Religious Education

We have been learning about how light helps people to remember and that it is an important symbol to both Advent and Hanukkah.

We made our own Christingles!

We used:

  • An orange to show the world
  • Red ribbon to represent God’s love
  • A candle to remind us of Jesus
  • 4 cocktail sticks with sweets on to represent God’s creations


In DT we planned and made a moving picture. We decided to link our project to our Heart Smart learning by making a moving Boris the Robot. Some robots can wave, others can shake their heads and some can wiggle their legs!

A mysterious trunk arrives…

An old-fashioned trunk with the initials F. N. appeared in class 4. We wonder what could be inside?


Autumn 1

During Autumn 1 we covered the topic ‘The Three Little Pigs’. We focussed on re-telling the story as well as looking at different materials.
