The Summer Term will get off to a fantastic start with the residential trip to Malvern.  We will be learning about India and undertaking lots of linked cross-curricular activities such as DT, Art, English and Dance.  There's even an 'Indian Day' to look forward to.  Let's hope for an Indian summer too!




What an amazing time was had by all.  The children were brilliant, each and everyone challenging themselves.  Some of the activities included archery, zip wire, quad poles, climbing, beacon walks (in all weathers!).  Each day the children considered which of the 7R's they had used: reflectiveness, resourcefulness, responsibility, readiness to learn, risk taking, relationships, resilience. Here are a few photos to give you a flavour of our time at the West Malvern Outdoor Elements.

This has been an exciting term for Year4.  Children have been improving their swimming skills on Mondays and learning new instruments as part of 'Play to Learn' culminating in a concert for their families. 


Ancient Egypt is our main topic and this has been enriched by a visit from The History Man (Mr Cadle).  Our large scale Egyptian masks are under construction and are looking amazing! 
We are looking forward to a visit from French pupils in April from our link school in Reims.




This year we have enjoyed reading the Wreck of the Zanzibar by Michael Morpurgo and created our own diary extracts.  This has been linked to our art topic where we have learnt to sketch sea shells and star fish. 
We are studying the Tudors and enjoyed a day at Harvington Hall where we were able to see how they lived. We learnt a Tudor dance and best of all got to look inside the priest holes. Did you know at a Tudor banquet they ate peacocks, puffins, swans and badgers to name but a few!!!!
In English we are writing a narrative story about a Tudor Boy and producing a Tudor magazine.
