Welcome to Year 4 with Miss Knighton!

Mother's Day Cards


We have been making Mother's Day cards to say thank you to mums for all their love, support and hard work! We traced butterflies and painted them with a watercolour wash. Next, we used poster paint to add in the body and glued our butterflies onto the cards. We drew the antenna on with felt tip pen and then wrote our messages in our best handwriting. We hope mums enjoy the cards!

Faith Programme with Sister Caroline


For Term 4's faith programme, we made sandwiches for those who people in Bristol who do not have a home. We very much enjoyed making the sandwiches and had time to reflect on the story of the good Samaritan and how we can apply this to our own lives. Our sandwiches were wrapped with a note,  prayer and artwork  from each child. We hope those who receive the sandwiches hope they taste good and enjoy reading the prayer, note and seeing the artwork. As ever, thank you to Sister Caroline for supporting the class on their spiritual journey. 


Neat folding from the girls!

Now boys - even spread of margarine!

What a sandwich making team!

Cheese and pickle!

Writing the prayers and completing the artwork. 



Recently, we visited Bristol Museum to learn about the Ancient Egyptians. 


Pupils completed a workshop based on artefacts and the Bristol novelist, journalist, traveller and Egyptologist Amelia Edwards.




We've made Rosary beads as part of our faith programme with Sister Caroline. 



In maths this term we have been focusing on geometry. We are learning to identify lines of symmetry, complete symmetrical drawings, plot coordinates and translate shapes. 




This term we walked to St Bede's Catholic College to see exciting science demonstration from scientists based at Bristol University. Upon return to class, the children wrote great explanations about what they have observed and learnt. We all found it to be an enjoyable and worthwhile experience. Everyone especially enjoyed the volcano of foam, colour changes and exploding balloons!
