Year 4 Music

Year 4 have been learning all about “The Nutcracker” by Tchaikovsky in music this half term. The children listened to the rhythms of the piece and played along using claps, slaps and cups! They put on a fantastic performance, well done Year 4!

Year 4’s World Book Day

Mr Frost’s class had a fantastic afternoon during World Book Day. The children listened to stories from around the world and then responded by writing their own letters or short stories. Watch the videos to see some of the fantastic work that the children produced.



Year 4 share some advice about sharing!

In our e-Safety lesson, Year 4 were thinking about the types of information that we may be required to share online. We talked about the different types of people and websites that may ask for different information, and what we should share with different people. The children then created Tellagami videos giving their own advice. Take a look at Ben’s example below.


Do you have other examples of information that is fine to share online? Or things that we should always keep private? Let us know in the comments.

Sandford Hill Sign2Sing

The children in Key Stage 2 have been learning how to sign and sing the song “Friends Forever” to help raise funds and awareness for The Deaf Health Charity. Today,¬†all children came in non uniform to help raise money for this wonderful charity, and the children gave their final performance. What a wonderful performance it was too!

Year 4 Visit to Chester

Year 4 had a fantastic visit to the DEWA Roman Experience in Chester yesterday.

The children took part in a Roman Solider patrol, learning all about the military tactics used by the Romans, as well as the armour and weaponry that was used to help the Roman Empire conquer so much of Europe. We visited the Amphitheatre and learnt more about gladiatorial combat and also visited the museum to learn more about Roman life. We found out about food, medicine, the bath houses and more before seeing all of the fantastic archaeological evidence that has been found in Chester. The children were brilliant ambassadors for our school and received many compliments from the staff at DEWA. Well done Year 4!

A reminder for parents/carers of Year 4 children

Can all parents/carers of Year 4 children please ensure that children arrive at school for 8:15am tomorrow morning (October 31st). The Year 4 children have their trip to the DEWA centre in Chester, and we need to leave school before 8:30am. Please take your child to the front entrance of school (The main office entrance).

Thank you for your co-operation.
