Welcome to Stingrays Class News

We are a Year 4 Class.


Our Teachers are Miss Shackel & Mrs Foster and our Teaching Assistant is Ms Leach.

End of Term 1

We have had a brilliant term of learning in Year 4. The children thoroughly enjoyed our topic of 'Minibeasts' and reading our class book 'James and the Giant Peach'. We began this topic by creating our own peach smoothies with delicious results!

During the term we went on a minibeast hunt in our local area and were thrilled to see how many creepy crawlies we could find!


Term 2

What a fantastic start to Term 2! We kicked off the topic of 'Traders and Raiders' by displaying our teamwork and DT skills when building our very own class Saxon boat.

In Science we are looking at 'States of Matter', and identifying the difference between solids, liquids and gases. We used marbles to show the different ways in which the particles can wriggle about!

We are looking forward to the end of the term when parents/carers will be invited in to share our lovely learning.


Welcome back to Term 3!

Our learning journey this term is ‘Road trip USA!’ We started our topic launch by 'visiting' the various states where Native American tribes settled. Together we explored the school and looked for the abbreviations of the states.

Afterwards we became keen travellers and researched New York, before writing postcards detailing our trip. We were shocked by some of the bizarre laws that have been introduced across America - particularly in the state of Alabama!
