Friday 15th February 2.15pm onwards Shared Learning:

Our topic this term has focused mainly on Science with Electricity and Sound being covered. We would like to celebrate the children’s learning this term by inviting you in to classes 2.15pm onwards. Within this shared learning session, the children will be able to work with you to complete some challenges involving electric circuits, demonstrate their handmade musical instruments and read you their own ‘mini’ Matilda story.  Due to space in class, this will be limited to 1 adult per child. We hope to see as many of you as possible.


ExplorerDome Visit:

During January all of Year 4 had the opportunity to go into the ExplorerDome where they learnt all about Sound. There were many interactive hands on activities that the children thoroughly enjoyed. Following the visit the children created amazing posters all about their experience in the ExplorerDome as part of their homework.


Worle Secondary School Christmas Performance:  Year 4 and 5 classes were invited to Worle school at the end of Term 2 to enjoy a fantastic musical performance. They listened to the orchestra playing and were shown many different instruments. Their were also several choirs, soloists and duets performing. It was a fantastic way to end the term and we hope it will inspire many of our young children to develop their musical talents and aspire to perform. 


Year 4 Weston Museum Display: On 18th December Year 4 had the opportunity to showcase their work from the Romans Topic at the local Weston Museum. They all worked extremely hard producing work to be displayed also writing informative labels to go with each item on show.

The Museum's education and history department were so impressed with the pieces produced, they have even selected several items to display during their history week in February half term. 


27th November Y4 Experience Christmas Day: Year 4 classes were invited to Milton Baptist Church to enjoy a ‘Christmas Experience’.  Becky Allison, Church Children and Family Worker, led the event together with other Church volunteers.  The children split into smaller groups, visiting workstations and displays around the church, learning about the Christmas story.


Caerleon Visit 15th November:  The Year 4 children enjoyed their educational visit to Caerleon, to expand their knowledge about the Romans. They were able to visit the amphitheatre, barracks and bathhouse as well as experience what it would have been like to go to school 2,000 years ago.

They enjoyed a range of outdoor activities including an assault course, a water fight and team building games. The event was a great success and the children ended the day with a talent show followed by hot chocolate and marshmallows around the camp fire. For many children this was their first experience of camping and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves and all had a fantastic experience.  Thank you to the staff who gave up their own time to take the children, activities like this cannot take place without their support.   Thank you also to the team from Osprey for making the visit so enjoyable.


Avon Wildlife Trust Visit and Bristol Water Project: At the beginning of Term 5, the Year 4 children were fortunate to be visited by the Avon Wildlife Trust and Bristol Water giving the children an opportunity to take part in activities and workshops. They learned how to look after the elvers which they cared for during 4 weeks. During a visit, Avon Wildlife Trust taught the children about conservation issues and projects which are in place to help the eels survival.

At the end of Term 5, the Year 4 classes visited Blagdon Lake to release the elvers. During the day the children worked closely with Bristol Water and Avon Wildlife Trust representatives to learn more about Blagdon Lake and Eel Conservation. They had an opportunity to feed rainbow trout and were also involved in poetry and art workshops.

World Book Day 1st March 2018: pupils and staff came to school dressed in their fantastic World Book Day costumes.  The children were able to take part in a variety of Dr Seuss based activities within school. Thank you to all our parents and carers for your support with the wonderful costumes.

The children had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon and all sang brilliantly.


Year 4 Roman WOW Day: During Term 1 the Year 4 Roman WOW day, the children dressed up and learnt about daily life. They studied Roman numerals and Roman food and then created a menu using the information they had learnt. The 4S classroom was transformed into a Roman Bath House and the children experienced what it would have been like to wash in the different temperature rooms and use a Roman strigil. The children are now looking forward to learning even more about the Romans at their Educational Visit to the Caerleon Roman Museum on 13th October.
