Welcome to Year 4

Year 4 Seahorses undertook their Level 1 Tag Rugby competition on Monday. Three enthusiastic teams played matches in a round-robin format before the final was contested. Team Rosa were the eventual winners, scoring 10 tries in total. Players also took on the role of timekeeper, scorer and observers of skilful play and sportsperson-ship. Well played everyone!
Year 4 Seahorses are taking part in an exciting new Mini Police programme every Wednesday afternoon. We have been working closely with the police, learning about anti-social behaviour and online safety, taking part in a Social Action project and performing duties around the school.
This week in their English lessons, Year 4 have been debating the question 'Should children have to wear school uniform?' There were some confident arguments on both sides of the debate and the audience listened attentively. Well done, Year 4!
Year 4 classes enjoyed a day out at the beach on Wednesday 28th September. We undertook a Rockpool Ramble with volunteers from Wembury Marine Centre and discovered at least one of each of the Big Five rockpool residents - a common prawn, a blenny, a cushion star, a hermit crab and a snakelocks anenome. We also helped out with a Beach Clean activity after learning about how long it takes for natural and man-made materials to decompose in sea water. A great day of learning and fun was had by all!
Year 3 and 4 classes met the author of a beautiful brand-new book 'Secret Seagrass Meadows' this week. Emma Rosen read her book to us and explained the vital importance of seagrass meadows to the marine environment, the creatures that live in this habitat and to us and our living world. She also provided us with crafting materials to create our own seagrass meadow. Take a look!
Year 4 had an exciting visit from Coral Smith at the Wembury Marine Centre. We were able to look at amazing photographs of the habitat below the ocean at Wembury as well as ask questions about the life there. As you can see in the pictures, the things that wash up on the beach were a winner too! Can you tell what they all are?
