Philippines Food Tasting Afternoon
In January 2017, as part of their geography studies, Year 4 have been learning all about The Philippines. Some of the children in Year 4 have Filippino heritage and so they bought in some traditional Filippino food and clothing to share with the classes.
In October 2016, Year 4 performed a Harvest song and dance to their parents and residents of a local care home.
Year 4 Tennis Tournament
In July 2016, 8 lucky children got the chance to take part in the Watford Sports Partnership’s Year 4 Tennis tournament held at Watford Grammar School for Girls. We entered two teams consisting of 4 players each. Both teams worked really hard and won many of their matches. We didn’t get through to the finals but we did have an enjoyable afternoon.
Year 4 Choir Club Perform
In June 2016, Year 4 Choir Club met and practised each week over the summer term. They were then able to share their hard work with the rest of the school during assembly time. They performed two songs: ‘Don’t Worry About Me’, by Frances, and ‘Hold Back the River’ by James Bay.
Don’t Worry About Me – By the Year 4 Choir
Hold Back the River – By the Year 4 Choir
In April 2016, Year 4 learnt about Michael Rosen and wrote biographies on him. Some children even pretended they were Michael Rosen and so wrote autobiographies instead. They also each picked their favourite Michael Rosen poem and learnt it off by heart. At the same time both Reception classes were learning about and enjoying his story books. Both year groups decided to meet in the Activity Studio to share their biographies and stories and to hear Year 4 recite their poems. It was a lovely afternoon!
Throughout the year, Year 4 have been learning to swim with the aim of independently swimming a length in any stroke.
