This week Year 4 have completed their Pedestrian Training. The children developed their understanding of the Green Cross Code and used ‘Stop, Look and Listen’ when crossing the road safely. Everyone involved showed an excellent attitude to keeping themselves safe when outside and listened carefully to the instructor. Next week the children will apply everything they have learnt from the training during an unescorted walk.

By looking at the bigger picture and interviewing all the animals involved we discovered the drastic impact that taking greenfly out of the food web would cause.

To support our work in English we will be studying ‘The great Kapok tree.’ See if you can find out what sorts of plants grow in the rainforest and which animals […]
Year 4 have been contacted by The Egyptian Tourist board. They heard how fantastic we were at finding out about Ancient Egypt and now they want us to help encourage more people to come to Modern Egypt. We will now have to work hard to find out about what Egypt is like today. We will be researching the climate, land use and what sorts of things there are to see and do in Egypt for visitors. You could find brochures from travel agencies to find pictures of things to see and do in Egypt and bring them in to share […]
We are so proud of our amazing Year 4 Cross Country team who won the Redditch First Schools’ competition on Friday afternoon. We were placed 1st overall out of 7 schools, with the lowest score of 197 points, which is fantastic!

Your support […]
