Year 4

Djembe drumming

All Y4 pupils learn to play the Djembe drums. Djembe drums are African instruments and the children love playing them They learn about African culture and language at the same time. The performances are always very impressive.


Science in a box

Leicester University Science students visited Year 4 in an outreach project called Science in a Box. We think Year 4 pupils make excellent scientists. We look forward to hearing that some are studying science in the future.


North American art

Whilst studying North America, Year 4 pupils created abstract art inspired by the American artist Helen Frankenthaler. They created 3-dimensional art using everyday circular objects. They had great fun creating abstract art using their bodies. The finished "big art" is certainly eye-catching.


Roman Day

Our Roman Day was a great success; the children met a Roman soldier and were inducted into a Roman legion to become soldiers of the Roman Empire. They had opportunities to march with shields, play Roman games, become gladiators and catch each other with nets. In the afternoon, many parents came to join us for cooking and mosaic making.

Honey Biscuits

As part of our Roman day activities, year 4 made honey biscuits. They had a wonderful time, measuring, mixing and munching!


In science, we have investigated the natural environment. We have classified leaves and looked for their similarities and differences.


Developing  ICT skills can be done in many ways and the children have the opportunity to use laptops to make powerpoints and posters. They learn about coding and programming through using Bee-bots and computer controlled robots.
