In computing, we have been exploring and editing this game.

Today we learned about Hadrian's Wall. Here are some facts we have collected as a class:

1. Hadrian became an emperor in AD 177 and came to Britain in AD 122.

2. Rome had been growing for 900 years before the wall was built.

3. Scotland was never part of the Roman Empire.

4. There were 15'000 Roman soldiers posted at the wall.

5. They built a ditch in front of the wall to keep the Scots out!

6. Towers and forts lined the wall and each housed 1'000 soldiers.

7. Part of the wall was made from turf but most of it was stone.

8. Hadrian died shortly after the wall's construction.

9. The wall was difficult to build as the topography was varied and vast.

10. Hadrian's wall was 80 Miles (76 Roman Miles) long.


Please ask us what other facts we know when we get home, tonight!

What can you hear when you block your ears? More than you think!

The children have been working very hard this week, publishing their infographics for Southern Water! The care and presentation is phenomenal. Well done!

We were very privileged to visit Brighton and Hove Synagogue today. It was exciting to see all the artifacts that we have been exploring in class and to hear about the Jewish religion from a practicing point of view.

Today we had a special visitor who came to talk to us about water and how it is used and cleaned all over the world... and beyond! A huge thank you for this informative presentation and the generous donation of picture books which will be used throughout the school for many years to come.

Today we made clay pots for planting cress. We used clay because it's biodegradable. We were going to make our very own biodegradable plastic however, we learned that it is not as biodegradable as we first thought.

Today was Eco day! We learnt even more about plastic pollution! Did you know that by 2050 there could be might be more plastic in the sea than fish?!

In Art, last half term, we explored the "Art of Display". We looked at the work of Giacometti and made our own "plinth people".

In RE we have been learning about Judaism. Today we explored Shabbat and the symbolism behind the artefacts used.

Today we learned about types of teeth and how they impact what we can eat!

The children have been learning about Howard Carter this half term. Today they confidently shared their writing with each other and were able to project their voices and articulate so that the words were clear.

We have finished making our very own steady hand games in DT. Overall, quite successful!

In History, we have been exploring the chronology of Ancient Egypt. Why is there is 4'000 year gap in our timeline?

We have been enjoying learning about audio editing software. One website you can access at home for free is:

Ask me about: circuit, voltage, current, cell, battery, conductor and insulator.

Today we imagined what it might have been like to be Howard Carter exploring Tutankhamun's tomb for the first time in 3000 years!

If you want to try, have a go at a little maths

challenge that stumped us today!


I'm thinking of a 4 digit number..

Rounded to the nearest ten it's - - 20

Rounded to the nearest hundred it's - 500

Rounded to the nearest thousand it's 7000


What could my number be?

Our visitor, Inventors and Makers and their STEM workshop with year 4!

Today we explored the River Nile and the importance of it for Ancient Egyptians.

Making a fruit battery! Citrus fruits provide citric acid, and acids contain ions which conduct electricity, making the fruits our electrolytes!

It was so lovely to meet some of you on Friday. If you were unable to make the parents' meeting, please have a look at the presentation that we shared and get in touch if you have any questions.

Reading buddies with Year 1!

Today we explored 1000 through measures. We measured liters, kilometers and kilograms and learned that each is worth 1000!

We mummified some tomatoes for our WOW START!
