Fab Day in 4B!


We used a frame to select part of a piece of Tinga Tinga art. We reacreated this piece by using a grid to enlarge it. Our work is on display outside our classroom, but here are some snapshots from the day! We had a wonderful time!

Calling Kenya!


Last week we set up a skype call with a family in Kenya! We spoke to Mercy, who is 15 years old, and goes away to school. She was at home on a half term break. The children prepared questions for her on a variety of topics. It was fantastic to connect with someone so far away in this way!

A special thank you to Rachel, Charlie’s Mum, who arranged it all! FANTASTIC!!!

As part of our topic on Kenya we have been learning about African animals. We have written non-chronological reports about the big 5 – lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo. The were named the big 5 as they are the most difficult land mammals to hunt on foot.
Write an interesting fact you know about any of the big 5 below!

Thank you!


A huge thank you to Oliver’s Dad, who came to talk to the class about Australia today. Oliver’s Dad works for an Australian Company, so he came to talk to us about the country, the climate there and the effects of climate change. It was very engaging and informative, and linked brilliantly with our Geography topic!

Thank you!
