Welcome to Year 4. Please visit our page for updates about our learning and the activities and fun that we have been having!
Skipping Festival

On Friday 13th October 2017, Year 4 took part in the whole school skipping festival. It was an enjoyable day and we all learnt new skills. It was tricky to get the hang of some skills, but with perseverance and a smile, we improved greatly! Some children were able to perform their new skills in a celebration assembly at the end of day. This has whetted our appetite for the Year 4 skip dance and competition in early 2018!


Have a look at some of our pictures from our gymnastics lessons. We are really enjoying learning (and inventing our own) gymnastic skills! We know how to perform sequences that include pike, tuck, straddle, straight, stag and wolf shapes. We have also been adding in flight elements and turns. Our balancing is improving and our sequences are getting better each week!

Boston Spa Topic Walk

On Friday 29th September, Y4 went on a walk around Boston Spa. We looked out for the features of Georgian architecture that we had been learning about in class. We found many examples of crowning pediments, sash windows and pilasters. One of the places we found most interesting was The Crown Hotel where we noticed that the original door had been blocked up. Later in the day we went to look at the River Wharfe and the pathway to the Old Bath House. Unfortunately, as there had been lots of rain the previous night we weren’t able to walk up to the Bath House. We also took turns in carefully walking across the narrow bridge to observe the weir.
“I thought that it was really fun because we got to learn new things” Zara Quyn.
“I didn’t know that the first Boston Spa house was so big” Sam Alker.
“I found out where the sign to the village baths was” Henry Elliott.
“I didn’t know that the cricketer Geoffrey Boycott lived in Boston Spa until I saw the blue plaque” Safina Batty.
“I enjoyed finding out where the old door in Costcutter was “Ethan Hennessey.

Here are some of our pictures from the walk:
