Welcome to Class 4 smiley

Summer Term Plan

Having a marvellous time in Forest School - mending, feeding, painting, potting and building!

 

Leaver Service at Gloucester cathedral 2024. We travelled with Blockley School and enjoyed lunch in the cathedral grounds before the service.

Year 6 did an amazing job at this summer's Dynamo Cricket Competition held at Tewkesbury Cricket ground where they reached the finals and came runners up! smiley

Class 4 had a fantastic day at Cheltenham Municipal Chambers conducting their mock trial. 

Congratulations to Sam and Barney who competed in the county KNEX finals at Wotton Under Edge

We hope you enjoy Class 4's Fairy Tale Newspapers smiley

An amazing visit from the Local Classic Car Club. We had the best time and really appreciated their beautiful cars, their knowledge and also their time! 

Class 4 have been practising their Macro Photography around the school grounds. Some wonderful nature shots I'm sure you will agree!

Class 4, who are preparing for the Mock Trial Competition for Primary Schools to be be held in Cheltenham's magistrates court, enjoyed a visit from a local magistrate to talk about the event and what being a real magistrate was really like.

Inspired by our Science topic - Habitats, we made our own small world versions in Forest School. 

Class 4 have really enjoyed studying 'Tuesday' by David Weisner. The story is fantastical and the pictures are fantastic. Please look at the story and enjoy our take on an outside broadcast from the town of Yawnsville.

We had a great visit from David Allen an engineer who is Head of Fleet Services in Scotland and the North West. He was paired with our school by Porterbrook and has been instrumental in perfecting our locomotives and their performance. He also spent time talking to the children about his job, a career in engineering and working as a team to problem solve!

Students are provided with an introduction to the exciting world of engineering by using K’Nex to produce a solution for a given problem. A winning team will be chosen from each school based on their ability to work together, solve problems, produce a working model and communicate their ideas to each other and the judge. The team with the best solution will be invited to the Gloucestershire K’Nex final. Typically the session will last for 2 hours starting with and introduction giving the pupils an hour to create their own designs using the K’Nex construction kit. K’Nex is a very adaptable construction kit that allows the pupils to experiment with structures, gears and other mechanisms while modelling their design.
