Times Table Rockstars
At the end of Year 4, our children will take part in a nationwide times tables test, which will assess their quick recall of the times table and division facts up to 12 x 12. To help them with learning these, children have a Times Table Rockstars account, to which teachers have assigned times tables to learn in the order in which they should be memorised.

The Greek influence on the world (Topic - Autumn 2)
From artistry to politics, ancient Greece left a considerable impression on world history. Learn why Greek and Roman gods share so many similarities, how the alphabet got its name, and how the legacy of ancient Greece has evolved over thousands of years.
The science of static electricity! (Spring 1)
We've all had the experience: you're walking across a soft carpet, you reach for the doorknob and ... ZAP. But what causes this trademark jolt of static electricity? Anuradha Bhagwat sheds light on the phenomenon by examining the nature of matter.
Electric Vocabulary (Spring 1)
We all know the words around electricity, "charge," "positive," "battery", and more. But where do they come from and what do they really mean? Let the history of these words illuminate the physics of electric phenomena.
Romanticism (Spring 1)
Romanticism is a historical movement that still hugely colours how we tend to feel and look at the world: it's responsible for the way we approach love, nature, business and children. This is its history.
Mary Shelley's 'Frankenstein' - Summary (Spring 1)
Quick and easy Frankenstein synopsis, analysis, and discussion of major characters and themes in the novel.
It was lovely to see so many children had gained the Year 3 badges and were wearing them on their jumpers coming up to Year 4. We are proud to say that even more children have gained their Year 4 Bronze badges and are now working towards Silver. Badges are earnt by following our School Aims and our Keys to Success. Children have been given a copy of our school passports. When they have achieved one of the goals on the passports, please inform your class teacher, either by sending evidence in person or via email.
PE is every Monday afternoon. Children should bring their PE kit in a bag. Earrings and other jewellery should not be worn on that day.
