Hello! Welcome to Year 4!
HOMEWORK UPDATE: We now have an email address for the children to email their electronic homework to their class teachers. Please make sure the email contains the child’s name and the name of their class teacher.
We have had an amazing time on our trip to Derby Museum today, we held stone spear heads which are over half a million years old, made Stone Age jewellery and clothing, made a clay sundial etched with Stone Age symbols... and so much more!!! Phew we are tired out now, thank goodness it's almost the summer break!
Drumming club performance at Asquith
Putting our creative skills to use designing our own clocks to support our learning about time

It was great to see so many parents and carers at our open afternoon, thank you for your fantastic feedback!
Our Stone Age themed topic information stations were educational and fun!
We enjoyed debating the importance of plastic. Do we NEED plastic or is it just convenient?
Finding out about night and day are created whilst learning about time
Where is the noisiest area in school? We did an investigation with our data logging equipment to find out!
The children's latest creative project organised by the very talented Mrs Maker, we love the use of warm colours and the contrast of the bold writing
In English, a lesson on Facts and Opinions turned into a debate about whether the controversial statement 'We need plastic' was a fact or an opinion!
The year 4 children created a human number line to help them to place and round different amounts of money
What a way to end the first Summer half term, Miss Matthews and Mrs Durham are so proud of this young man!

Class 4JM/TD were awarded the Headteacher's Award this week for being spotted being brilliant around school by lots of members of staff. A great team effort and a good example of collaboration.
We are really proud of our children's achievements out of school as well as in school!

The children learnt lots of very important messages during Road Safety Awareness Week. Class 4JM/TD really enjoyed playing the Your Move game which reminded them of the STOP, LOOK, Listen rules and other tips on how to stay safe whilst out and about.
Wouldn't you agree that the children look fantastic in their own choice of clothing!!! They certainly expressed themselves and their unique personalities whilst raising money for Children in Need.
On Thursday 15th November the children in class 4JM/TD created some still images to convey the messages we have been learning about during anti-bullying week: Stop, Speak and Support and Choose Respect. The children did a fantastic job of using body language and facial expressions to create still and silent scenarios with some powerful and dramatic effects.
Whilst learning about Remembrance and celebrating one hundred years since the end of World War I, the year 4 children really enjoyed working with a theatre group, who visited school. Thank you to all of the parents that came along, we hope you enjoyed it too!
On Friday 9th November 2018 year 4 conducted a remembrance ceremony at our remembrance bench, in the school premises. This was a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase our amazing war themed poetry and our poppy inspired art. We also showed our respects with a two-minute silence. It really was an honour and a privilege to be a part of it!
On Tuesday 6th November 2018 year 4 visited Mansfield Library as part of our remembrance topic. The children enjoyed learning about the war, which really inspired their war themed poetry and artwork. The dressing up was fun too!
On Friday 9th we became a united sea of blue to show our solidarity and support for anti-bullying awareness! We all choose respect!
For our Harvest assemblies the year 4 children made Autumnal themed artwork. We experimented using handprints, wax leaf rubbings and leaf stamps. We hope you were just as impressed with the final pieces as we are! Watch out Picasso we have some budding artists!
We wore odd socks to school to remind ourselves that we are all the same but we are all different too! An opportunity to celebrate the ways in which we are united and our own special individual traits and characteristics. We respect ourselves and each other at Berry Hill!
Roald Dahl Day
Beware! There’s an enormous crocodile on the loose. You can see just how much fun the children in class 4JM/TD had coming to school dressed as their favourite characters to mark Roald Dahl day.
