Year 4 have had such a busy term. We rounded off our English with a trip on the Polar Express. Dressed in our pyjamas, we drank velvety warm hot chocolate with soft marshmallows and played games. However, we still had to make a note of what we could see out the windows to help us with our writing later in the week. On the last day of term we are watching the Polar Express film.


We would like to wish everyone a Happy Christmas and New Year and look forward to telling you all about our learning next term.

Welcome to year 4. This year we will consolidate objectives taught in LS2 and continue the journey of having exciting topics embedded across the curriculum. The opportunities will enhance our learning and help achieve our goals.


Already we have had a busy first four weeks at school. We started our first topic ‘The class that climbed Pen- Y- Fan’ by learning all about different types of mountains and drawing one. All of the pictures were very different showing individual styles.

Before we climbed up Pen y fan Mr Smith came in to visit tell us all about what a mountaineer needs to climb up a mountain. We asked fantastic questions and really enjoyed learning new information.


Finally, the day came to climb up Pen –Y- Fan. We were so lucky to have amazing weather. The children all climbed up Corn Du first then continued across to Pen-Y fan and with the sun shinning we witnessed stunning views. Lunch was a welcomed break as we enjoyed the valley that swept below us. One of the children even spotted a red kite flying.

Our Hereford Harvest morning activities were all about ‘Everything Apple'.


We had four activities that the children completed throughout the morning.



  1. Science : Life cycle of an apple tree
  2. Art: Make a 3D apple:
  3. Comprehension quiz:
  4. Tasting apples and juicing:

Thank you to all parents to came to help and be part of an enjoyable morning.

As we continue with our mountain topic, we have started to learn about habitats in science and classifying animals. We have focused on the snow leopard and in art have successfully used charcoal and chalk to draw the face of a snow leopard.

In Science, we have been learning all about habitats and how to classify animals by using branching databases.

In PSHE, we have been learning how to work as a team in ‘getting on and falling out’. We used a ball of wool to connect to someone who we know out of school and explain why. We ended up all connected to each other.
