Mrs Parton's Class

This term we came into school to find a mystery suitcase full of clues. It included a jar of pickles (gherkins), Paddington bear, a googly eye (one), a crown, a Lego tower, a sign and a picture of two children (both called Ben). Where would our next adventure take us?


LONDON here we come!


In the Spring term, Year 4 have been exploring space. We have gone "Out of this World" in literacy - writing our own space adventure stories. The children have also studied a different form of poetry - called Cinquains.


Here is our class Cinquain:



Mysterious, tranquil

Rocketing, zooming, floating

Seven planets not stepped on



Stars                                                             Sun

Bright, shiny                                                  Boiling, enormous

Shimmering, glistening, glinting                      Roasting, blazing, scorching

Very small lights                                            Life creator

Stellar                                                           Heat ball

by Sophia                                                                   by Dillon


The children also enjoyed preparing cupcakes, rocky road and moon rock cakes (rice crispie cakes) for their community tea. We welcomed lots of parents, grandparents and governors, who enjoyed a cup of tea and some sweet treats. It was a very busy afternoon - thank you to everyone who joined us.
