Eye Factor 2017 Finals- Wednesday 13th December 2017


As part of our Music Topic, Year 4 got into bands, chose a group outfit and a song to perform. Year 4 did a really good job with performing in front of parents at St Matthew's Church and the children at school. Mrs Emeny was "Proud and pleased.." with the children. Miss Faux was, "Blown away" with the performances, Miss Barks was "Really impressed with the performances." Thank you to all the parents for coming to watch the children perform; it was a night everyone will remember forever.

Autumn Term 2


In English we will be studying Star Wars and learning how to create our own exciting narratives.


Science will give us the opportunity  to explore how sound travels and what makes our ears work.


In maths we will be continuing to get to grips with all our times tables.


Our music topic this term is the Eye Factor - a chance for our amazing children to sing, dance and perform.



In Science, we are learning about the seven processes of life. MRS NERG is an acronym that helps us to remember them all.

Movement Respiration Sensitivity Nutrition Excretion Reproduction Growth


We went into the willow garden to find things from the natural world and then worked out what was living and not living by checking the item against our MRS NERG checklist.


We looked at a beautiful living thing - Connie's pet snake, Cynthia.



Trip to the Peterborough Museum                                                                                              28/9/2017


As part of our, topic Romans, year four visited  the Peterborough Museum.

First, we became slaves and we had to do chores for the Governor like choosing entertainment, making a meal, choosing a plate or bowl, and buying food from the market.

After that, we made clay faces of our friends, ourselves or other people. The year four team enjoyed the clay making.


These are some of the clay faces we made.
After lunch, we met a Roman solder called Marcus and he taught us how they fought. 
Then we made a barrier of Roman shields. This would of been useful for protecting the Roman armies.
After, we made another defence called the tortoise shell which was used in battle.

What do Dolphins want to learn about the Romans?

This term are topic is the Romans and we decided to find out all about them. So to find out, we read many reference books and wrote questions about the things we want to know. Then, we organised our questions by using a Tree Diagram.

Welcome to Dolphins Class 


Our Topic this term: What did the Romans do for us?


The Roman influence is in our everyday lives and the children will answer five key questions this term:



Why did the Romans come to Britain?

What made the Romans so powerful?

How did the Romans live?

Who didn’t want the Romans in Britain?

Why did Hadrian build a wall?


We will investigate how the Roman Empire started through the legend of Romulus and Remus and how the Roman Empire spread so quickly over the greater part of the known world. A study of how the Romans lived, worked and played will show how many of their innovations are in our lives today. Although many Britons welcomed the Romans into Britain, Boudicca's Iceni tribe gave resistance. The children will find out why this group resisted and how successful they were. Throughout the term, we will consider the legacy of the Roman Empire; roads, language, plumbing and democracy.
