Hi Year 4! Here is this week's RE!

This term in RE we are looking at Places of Worship.

Christianity: Christians worship God in Church buildings all over the world. As we can’t go and visit a local church at the moment, use the link and click on the items to discover what you might find in a traditional church building.


Christians aren’t able to worship in churches or sing together at the moment so they are doing things a little differently. These children have made a song …


Enjoy listening!

Mrs Westall​



Hi Year 4, 

I've been playing on hour of code, this week. It's a website where you can learn how to code different events on the computer. It also works on phones and tablets, so you'll be fine whatever you've got. Today's game lets you code a dance party. With loads of songs to choose from, click on the link and work your way through the levels to create your own dance party.

Have fun!

Mrs Fraser


Have a go at playing this tune on the virtual piano! Can you work out what song it is? If you have a real piano/keyboard/glockenspiel at home, try to use that as well.
