NSPCC Sponsored Event


This afternoon, 4H (and 2 6R pupils) took part in 'Big Buddy's Workout' to help raise money for the NSPCC. 


The children were faced with 6 sporty challenges: Burpees, sit-ups, shuttle run, hula hooping, skipping and a ball challenge. They worked hard and really pushed themselves for half an hour while rotating around the different challenges.  


By the end, they were exhausted and did themselves (and Buddy) proud! Well done!

This term in Computing, we are becoming toy designers. Our aim is to create a moving toy and the children have come up with some fantastic designs so far. Today, we have been busy creating our sprites ready to start programming next week.

Fizz Pop Science visited Year 4 today and a fantastic time was had by all!


We learnt about insulators and conductors and then conducted an experiment to see which one we were by passing an electric current around a circle.


The most exciting part of the morning was using the Van de Graff machine. Several of the class described the feeling of the electricity as 'fizzy' and 'tickly'! Everyone had a turn and the results were hair-raising!

Please look for the letter in your child's bag. Return it as soon as possible.

Mrs Dixon and Miss Hayden would like to say thank you to all the children and parents who have wished us both well as we begin our maternity leave. We have really enjoyed teaching 4HD this term and hope that all the children continue with the brilliant start they have made to Year 4. We would like to warmly welcome Miss Hill, who is taking over 4HD and hope that she enjoys her time at Robert Bakewell Primary School. Good luck everyone!

The link below takes you to Levon Biss' website. We have been looking at his artistic photography in our science lessons. We loved zooming in on the pictures to see the creatures close up. It was interesting to see what they looked like in so much detail. We have used his work as an inspiration for creating our own 'larger than life' detailed drawings. See some of our work in the pictures below. 

'Larger Than Life' Observational Drawings

Don't forget, if you are struggling with some of your homework. It is absolutely OK to ask your teacher for some help!
We have done lots of work on place value in maths recently. Place value is a really important part of maths that children must have a firm understanding of. The link below has some great games that can be played at home to reinforce the learning we have been doing at school.
We have been learning about living things in science. We have learnt the seven life processes. We talked about what habitats we have around our school grounds for living things. We thought we would find invertebrates in the trees. We ruffled through the leaves on the ground and lifted up some logs to find lots of creepy crawlies. We used an identification key to see what we had found. We also used a leaf ID sheet to name the trees around the playing field. 
On Tuesday we had a special maths lesson in the hall. The Problem Solving Company came into school to give us a special task. We had to work in groups to build a lego model that was identical to one hidden in a box. One person from each group was allowed to look at the model then describe it to the rest of the group using mathematical language. It was really hard. We had to think about position, direction and shape. We worked really well together to complete the challenge. It was hard work but we had great fun!

Here are some photos of our recent topic day. We had great fun baking bread using a traditional Viking recipe. We measured our ingredients and even used a pestle and mortar to grind some corn. 

We also designed and made a shield. We used paint to decorate it and used a paper plate in the middle to make a boss.

Welcome to 4HD's class page!

What a wonderful start we have had to the term, all of the children have got stuck into our new topic the Vikings.


We have attached the curriculum map for you to see what we will be learning this half term.


Pictures and useful links will be posted on this page throughout the year to help you with your learning and so you can show your adults what we have been busy doing in school.


We would also like to thank all of the parents who came along to our meet the teacher meeting this morning, if you have any further questions about your child's learning please do not hesitate to ask at the end of the day.

Mrs Dixon and Miss Hayden
