In year 4, in computing, we learnt how to be meteorologists. We made a weather station and from this we understood different measurement techniques for weather, both analogue and digital. We used computer-based data logging to automate the recording of some weather data. We also used spreadsheets to create charts analyse data, explore inconsistencies in data and make predictions.
The fun part was being weathermen - we presented the weather to the class, just like they do on telly.

On Thursday 10th June, Elders took part in the Middle School sports day completing 6 different events. This included a long distance run, a 80m sprint, long jumps, speed bounce, javelin and chest push. Different points were scored for achieving different distances and times. In our class both Keeley and Ivan scored the highest points in the whole of Middle School. Well done Elders for your determination and great sportsmanship.

To explore what the lives of the Romans were like, year 4 were lucky enough to visit Colchester Castle.

One of the many activities involved us spending some time building Roman Villas and Roundhouses.

We researched and identified many other aspects of Roman life and had the opportunity to experience what it would have been like in a chariot race and locked in the dungeons. We also listened to many interesting stories from the era, underneath the castle itself.

It was a really fun and interesting day; everyone definitely enjoyed themselves and learned lots!

This term we were also lucky to have the opportunity to go and watch the film 'Small Foot' in the cinema.

The story was exciting and funny, whilst having a story line that reflected upon our code of conduct.

As a year group we are currently in the process of rehearsing for our performance 'The Rocking Romans'.
