Year 4 – Badgers & Deer

Our Amazing Work!

Early this week, Year 4 had an unusual delivery – a dragon egg! They have been observing any movements or cracks. One crack has started to appear…

Hello Year 4 and welcome back. We hope you have had a wonderful summer holiday. We are going to have a fantastic year together, learning and finding out lots of new things. Working in the Year 4 team this year will be Miss Stavert, Mrs Hollis, Mrs Martin, Mrs Carr and Mr Perry. We can’t wait to get to know you all and begin our time together.

Hello, Year 4.

I am really looking forward to teaching you all this year in our science lab!

We will be learning about Safety in the Laboratory,  Living things, Animals, Sound. Electricity, States of Matter and you will be developing your practical skills and carrying out lots of fun scientific investigations! We will also be taking our learning outdoors and learning about all the animals and plants around us. I am really looking forward to getting to know you all. Mrs Griffiths.


Year 4 designed and made phones cases out of felt, as part of their textiles DT project.

On Monday 22nd May, 10 year 3 and 4 children made their way to Pershore tennis club to take part in a variety of different tennis activities. We had a fabulous time learning new skills and came back very pleased with ourselves.

Year 4 had a sandcastle competition as part of their ‘hook’ activity into their new topic ‘Oh I do like to be beside the seaside.’ This was the winning sandcastle.

Year 4 visited the grounds of the Abbey to learn about the dissolution of the monastery during King Henry VIII reign. Thank you to Judy for leading such an informative talk about our local area.

Linked to our topic ‘Terrible Tudors’ Year 4 have been looking at portraits in art. Ruby drew the other half of this portrait of King Henry VIII.

For art day, Year 4 ‘Badgers’ completed a collage of a badger in the style of the artist Megan Coyle.

Naomi wrote an excellent play script based on the story ‘The Great Kapok Tree’

On January 12th we went to young voices at Resort World in Birmingham and it is safe to say that it was absolutely AMAZING! We spent the day rehearsing with all the other children (over 6,500 of them!) so that our songs were perfect for our performance at 7pm. Once it got to 6pm we frantically started searching for our parents as they began to fill the arena! They had front row seats so that was amazing too and they were quite easy to spot with a huge banner and light up gloves! Once the concert began we smiled the entire time and sang our hearts out. If you have never been, make sure you sign up next year as it’s an unforgettable experience.

Year 4 completed a ‘Bush Tucker Trial’ as part of their new topic ‘I’m a Year 4! Get me out of here.’ As you can see from their faces, there were all sorts of creepy crawlies hidden in the boxes.

Year 4 enjoyed an art day at the end of term where they created a Christmas landscape print.

This term Year 4 have been learning to play the recorder in their music lessons.

Year 4 played really well and won their most recent game against another local school.

Well done to the team!   4-1 to Abbey Park

Year 4 had a visit from James Martin, the Baptist Minister at Pershore Baptist Church. He discussed his role and ended with a fun singalong.

Year 4 celebrated Diwali with a dance workshop. They thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the dance and learning more about the ‘Festival of Light’.

Year 4 wrote a class Kenning based around their class reader ‘How to Train a Dragon.’ Can you guess which dragon from the book this kenning is describing?

Year 4 were Anglo-Saxons for the day at Bishops Wood. They learnt skills such as brooch making, spinning wool and clay pot making, which the Anglo-Saxons used to do. The highlight of the day was shelter building in the woods and of course fire making. The trip really brought this historic era to life, which they have been studying in class.

We have been continuing our work on dragons. This is a piece of writing by Jack.

Year 4 went to check on their dragon egg and to their surprise the egg had hatched! The school cameras captured a large beast flying around the classroom. Year 4 now need to think of ways to trap and capture the dragon before it does any harm.

Year 4 received a parcel and using their inference skills, they had to guess what was in it. To their surprise, there was a dragon egg and a letter from a Viking asking them to look after the 1000 year old egg.
