Year 4 2017 - 2018

Mr Dale

Welcome to our Year 4 class page

What's been happening in class this Summer Term?

4/7/2018. Today was our final art day with Jo and in keeping with the spirit of the Fifa World Cup, we created models of players and World Cup Pop Art inspired artwork. Thank you Jo for an amazing lesson!




02/07/2018. In sweltering heat, Year 4 were able to stay as cool as ever at the Rhyl Aquarium and beach front. We had an amazing time and learnt a great deal about the bio-diversity of life in our oceans. We even met a very acrobatic Seal!


On Thursday the 28th June, we were building bridges of friendship in R.E to examine the role of teamwork and friendship in our lives.



For our Amazon Topic, the children were treated to an art day with Jo the art teacher.

Have a look at some of our amazing animal designs:
