Wisdom & Faith

Year 4 - Mrs Benedykt and Miss Doody

Well done and thank you to all children for their hard work and effort this year. We have really enjoyed teaching you and we are so proud of you. Thank you to all parents and family for the kind words, very generous gifts and continued support. We hope you all have a wonderful summer break and look forward to seeing you in September.






The children thoroughly enjoyed art week! We have focused on the natural world, and more specifically, the natural world in South Africa. This links so well to our current class novel, The Butterfly Lion, which is set in South Africa.

Science Week 20.05.19



We had a great week! Our focus was recycling and sustainability. Please have a look at some photos below.


Sponsored Bunny Hops

Year 4 completed their sponsored bunny hop around the small playground on Friday 12th April. They all tried so hard and put 100% effort into it. Through blood, sweat and tears (only the tears weren't present!) they kept going and were led so well by Isaac John. Please find the results of how many laps they completed so that all the sponsor money can be collected during the Easter Holidays.

We are so proud of you all!

The Lower Juniors were fortunate enough to attend The Classical Spectacular in The Royal Albert Hall on Friday 22nd March. They had a great time, and had the opportunity to listen to The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra as well as violinists, opera singers and watched some wonderful dancers too!

There were light shows, canons and even fireworks. It truly was spectacular. 

The children really enjoyed World Book Day! They dressed up in such fabulous costumes, and took part in many activities involving books. They read really well with Mr Griffin's year 2 class.

For Shrove Tuesday, we followed a recipe to make pancakes, cooked them and ate them - yum!

Children's mental health week


We have been talking about Mental Health in class. We focussed on stress, anxiety, sadness and anger.

We made a leaflet about strategies to support these feelings.

We tried meditation in class. Some of us nearly fell asleep!


Here is a link to meditation for children on youtube:

Unfortunately, due to unforeseen problems with buses, we were unable to visit the Recycling Centre in Wandsworth. However, we made the best of a bad situation and went to the Common to identify various plants and develop our general knowledge of plants in our local environment.

We predicted which materials would be magnetic and non magnetic, and used our findings to answer the question, are all metals magnetic?

We enjoyed investigating which materials create the most friction. We recorded the data and then presented it in bar graphs.

3 Types of Natural Rocks and the Rock Cycle: Igneous, Sedimentary, Metamorphic

We had great fun identifying bones, making skeletons and naming the bones!

Our PE days this year are Tuesday and Thursday. Remember to have your PE kit in school and that your plimsolls still fit!

Mathletics homework will be set from next week. You can use your password to start working towards achieving a gold certificate - good luck!
