V&A and Science Museum

Year 3 and 4 went on a trip today and looked at how fashion and technology had changed in the last 90 years.

We had the chance to visit the jewellery section in the V&A and I saw amazing tiaras that I would love to own! You can see one below 🙂

We also saw some shoes that we thought Mrs Hastings might like.

It was really interesting to see how some things have changed and how others have not.

Some of the outfits we saw in the fashion section looked as if they could have been designed today but were designed 50 years ago. However, some were so different that it was easy to recognise in which decade that they were designed.

Can anybody think of things that have or haven’t changed in the last 90 years?

School Council

Today in assembly we discussed our school council. We looked at the different roles and what skills we would need.
Year Four are looking for –



Two school council reps

The skills we are looking for are –
– Confidence but also be calm

– Respectful – take others’ opinions seriously
– Organised and have clear writing
– Be able to share ideas clearly

Welcome to Year 4


The summer has ended and school has begun. I hope you all had a great time and hope that your brains are refreshed and focused – and ready to get started in Year 4!

– Times tables are very important and if you know them, it makes other sections of maths easier and quicker.
– The spelling list is on the blog and will be reposted soon so you can always access it at home. Use it to help!
– We have an exciting investigation coming up in science soon – Keep an eye out for shoe boxes (or even bigger boxes) and bring them into school if they are not needed at home.

The most important thing in Year 4 is to have fun with our learning, so if at any point you find yourself stuck, talk to me, email me or post on the blog! (I will try to respond as quickly as possible.)
