Children are not allowed to wear jewellery for PE, dance or games lessons. Children with long hair should tie their hair back and head-scarfs should be tucked in.

Homework

Homework is given out on a Wednesday and should be returned to school the following Monday.

Arts Initiative - The Tudors

As part of this year's arts initiative, Year Four children will be looking at The Tudors: This is an important part of history as The Reformation involved England in a complete revolution of religious practice, which changed the lives of ordinary people drastically and which was precipitated but not caused by Henry’s divorce of his Catholic Queen, against the will of the Pope and the ruling dynasty of Europe to which she belonged, and his marriage to Anne Boleyn, an act of defiance that has come to characterise the independent English spirit ever since, but at the time caused misery, hardship and anguish for many of the population.

Music

Class 4TD have been busy writing music, lyrics and creating a music video. They really enjoyed taking part in this fun end of year activity and have performed this song during the music recital.

Activities

Year 4 children love Claremont Primary School so much that one pupil even wrote a rap about school in their spare time. Why not watch the video of them performing this fantastic poem?



Educational Trips

Year 4 children were extremely excited to visit Chester zoo, they got the opportunity to learn about a range of animals. The children found fast facts about each of the animals they encountered as well as gaining a glimpse into the habitat they needed. They definitely had lots of fun, especially walking through the bat cave.

Alexandra Park

All of year 4 visited Alexandra park to look at the range of plants and animals in our local environment. The children explored the lake, the trees and hidden logs to identify the plants and micro habitats around us.
