Welcome to Seahorses!


If parents have any queries and want to speak to their child's class teacher, this can be done in a number of ways:
1) Email - please find our school email addresses below

Mr Bishop-Hawes:

Miss Holmes:

2) Phone call to the office 703656
3) Pop in after school - the door is always open!


Seahorses have had their first homework and are getting used to arrangements in Y4 - please look at the document below which outlines what they need to do and how.


The topics that the Year 4 pupils will be covering during the Summer Term (Terms 5 and 6) can be seen below.


The pace plan for Year 4 for this term can be seen below. Each pace plan tracks when particular areas of learning will be in focus across a term.


Year 4 have done lots of learning about ancient Greece over the past term.  They had a Greek Day and an exhibition for the other children in school and their families.


Clownfish and Seahorses have made masks after learning about theatre in Greece over 2000 years ago. These will be on display in the Year 3 & 4 corridor until Easter. Children have learned a number of practical skills in making them and really enjoyed covering them in tissue with papier mache techniques.


After a term of learning football skills on Tuesday afternoon, it was time for our level 1 football tournament. Teams played 4 games during that Monday. Congratulations to William, Daniel, Theos and Lucas whose team won the most matches!


Year 4 commemorated remembrance with a day of activities to help the children understand why it was important to mark 100 years since the end of the conflict. We searched for fallen soldiers who shared our name and made poppies to add to the remembrance display in the hall.


Year 4 had a great day at Wembury beach on Tuesday 9th October - we scoured the beach for plastic that was washed up and learned about the harm that it does to marine life. In the afternoon, we explored the reef at low tide and practised safely searching for sea organisms in rock pools. Have a look at what we did and found!


The week before the Wembury trip, Year 4 had a day exploring our nearest habitats, the school hedgerow and vale woods. We looked for evidence of animals and plants in these places. In the afternoon, we used some of the fallen leaves to make some art, including leaf rubbing with crayons.


Year 4 had a visit from Devon Wildlife Trust Beach Rangers ahead of their trip to Wembury next week. We learned about the Big 5 animals in the rockpools and got a chance to look at some "mystery" objects that were washed up there. So excited for next Tuesday!
