Optional half term Holiday Activity Pack
This is a collection of holiday activities to do inside or outside with your family. There's lots of ideas including a nature trail, snakes and ladders using your stairs, alongside some fun facts about Japan. The booklet is produced by GetSet Tokyo to get us ready for next year's Olympics.
Video message from Mrs Rahman
This is a great way to explore shapes while interacting with nature, building spatial awareness and fine motor skills! For this easy activity, all you need are sticks and rubber bands.
First, create 2D shapes with your sticks. How many shapes can you make? What are they called? Next, make flat 3D shapes. Then, challenge yourself to make 3D models of each shape using rubber bands to connect your sticks. Finally, use your imagination to transform your models into something new (tiny houses, space ships, boats, etc.)!

Welcome to Year 4!
We managed to finish our Egyptian masks just before school closes! There were only 18 of us by the end. Aren't they great?
We all had fun taking part in our STEM challenge.
Tiago's dad came in to talk to us about his job in IT. He told us about the very first computer, which was enormous and expensive. He also talked about how he has to stop viruses infecting the computers at his company and reminded us how to be safe online. It was very interesting.
We had a science lesson with half of Year 3 and half of Year 4. We had to find out which was the best spinner. Did the wing size matter? Did the material it was made of matter?
Science Week has got off to a flying start with a talk by Tim Cole, an avionics engineer for Virgin Atlantic.
Year 4 visited the British museum. We learnt about mummification and then looked around the Egyptian galleries. They were an amazing civilisation!
February 11th was Internet Safety Day! We completed a Staying Safe Online quiz and then discussed the answers. We learnt that it is important to be careful about what we do and say online to be safe.
We used the tablets in maths to learn how to use coordinates. You must remember to follow the x coordinate before the y coordinate.
This week, the RE captains from KS2 led our class assembly. It was Children's Mental Health Week and they showed us how bravery comes in all shapes and sizes. Bravery can be about sharing worries and asking for help, trying something new or pushing yourself outside your comfort zone.
String Telephones - the sound travels along the string.
African Drumming! We were lucky to take part in a drumming workshop. It was fun, if a bit noisy at times!
Maths - matching equivalent fractions
All Saints Day service at St Andrew's Church.
Forest School - we love it (even when it's cold!)
Harvest Festival at St Andrew's Church
Year 4 stayed behind after the service to help the church community sort all the contributions that had so generously been donated. What a pile of tins!
Year 4 visit to the Museum of London
Metro Bank Money Zone workshops
Metro Bank Money Zone workshops
We had two workshops in the classroom where we were introduced to the skills of banking, saving and budgeting. We then visited Metro Bank in Enfield where we were allowed in the vault and learnt what sort of things you might want to keep in a safety deposit box.
