Summer Term 2016

Welcome back! 

We are all ready for our final term as year 4's. We have got lots to look forward to this term, in particular our performance of Panto Pandemonium! The countdown is on! Keep checking our class page for updates and photographs.



On Thursday 21st April we performed our show to parents. It was AMAZING! Mrs Tate said it was outstanding and the best show the Althorpe and Keadby had put on. We are so proud of ourselves, all our hardwork paid off. Here are a few photos taken before curtain call!

Year 3&4 TRIP

On Thursday 26th May we will be visiting the National Childrens Museum EUREKA. This will form our IPC exit point and we have got lots of fun and enriching activities planned for the day! We can't wait!



We planted in our allotment patch this week. We decided to plant beetroot and can't wait to cook with it once it has grown. Here are some photos of us in action and our amazing allotment sign, designed by Mia and made by the very talented Graham.


In our IPC topic we have been finding about our teeth to form a non-chronological report titled 'All About Teeth'.

As part of learning about how to care for our teeth, we all tried a disclosing tablet which highlighted where plaque had developed in our mouths., and areas which we need to take more care of. We had such fun doing this and it has changed and improved so many of our brushing habits!

Digestive System

To help us understand what happens to our food once we put it into our mouths, we carried an experiment to show this journey. Here are some photographs.

Keadby Bridge Centenary

Saturday 21st May marks the 100 year anniversary of the Keadby Bridge. Leading up to this momentous occasion we have spent time in class and at home learning about the bridge. One of our homework tasks was to build a model of Keadby bridge. They were truly outstanding. The top 3 winners for our class were:




These bridges get to be judged by our parish councillors on Saturday at our special celebration. We can't wait to find out the overall winner.
