Y4 spent a fantastic day in Sheffield city centre, attending the Sheffield Children’s Book Awards. At a very lively ceremony, we were entertained by ‘That Poetry Guy’, then saw the winners of the various awards, including the ones we had voted for when we were in Y3. The Lord Mayor of Sheffield presented the overall […]
Y4 started the year by immersing ourselves into the magical world of The Spiderwick Chronicles. Through our reading, we discovered that it is possible to gain ‘The Sight’, allowing humans to see into the ‘faerie’ world. This world contains all sorts of creatures, from fairies and pixies to trolls and boggarts. Once we had gained […]

We found all sorts of species of grass, flowers and trees in this unique habitat. We also made some sketches and […]
To support our learning in history, design and technology, art and design, PE and outdoor learning, Y4 spent the day imagining and experiencing life as Roman legionaries. They set up camp using our outdoor learning tarps, then created shield designs using classical ideas to represent the type of soldier they were. Next came military practice […]
In Art, Year 6 have been creating clay busts of characters from the play we are studying this year: A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Children experimented with using wire frames within their clay sculptures to support the structure where required and the finished sculptures have also been painted. Can you tell which character each sculpture is?
