We are going to begin our new topic ‘Hero or Villain?’ by researching who Dick Turpin was.
Watch the following music video: Stand and Deliver by Adam and the Ants. What impression do you get of highwaymen from this video?
The following websites will be useful:

This is a short film about an alien who visits earth.
As you are watching, think about what he sees as he travels to different places on Earth and write a log for each of the main events. This might take you a couple days to produce.
For an extra challenge, think how he might describe unfamiliar objects as he might not know the names of these objects.
Look at the examples below for ideas:
Why not try this tasty science experiment using Oreo biscuits to create the moon phases.
Today’s lesson is to research information about spacesuits and find an interesting way to present your information.
- What is the job of a spacesuit?
- What are the different parts of a spacesuit?
- How have spacesuits changed over time?
- How do astronauts put on their spacesuits?
Below are different websites to help you.
Tim Peake (the first British astronaut to visit the ISS in 2015) explains how spacesuits keep astronauts alive outside the space station.
Information about the different types of spacesuits used:
Watch the following video about how astronauts put on space suits:
This week, you will be learning about the phases of the moon. Your first task is to observe the moon each night. Record the shape of the moon on the grid below. Do this for a full month (or more). What do you notice? (If you can’t see the moon due to it being cloudy, just draw a cloud picture in the appropriate place.
I wonder who will manage to keep up their record for the full month?
Do you believe in aliens?
Think about the planet that you researched. What would an alien be like if it could survive on that planet? What would it be called? Below are some ideas for creatures that could live on Mars or Jupiter, but these are just ideas. You might design something completely different.
Draw, paint or make a model of your alien and describe it, explaining why it has those particular features.
I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Hi Year 4 brass players,
As this year’s music festival couldn’t go ahead, Barnsley Music Services are putting together an alternative to help to give children an opportunity to work towards a performance.
They will be able to learn how to play part of ‘In the Hall of the Mountain King’ via online learning. Please click on the link below for the further information and resources to support you.
The final arrangements for how young people can join in with the performance on Friday 26th June will appear on the website above very soon once finalised.
I hope that some of you will support this event.

This wonderful Year 4 made a wind turbine using Lego and wrote a program to control it using Lego WeDo 2.0. He kept adapting his programme to improve it. The wind turbine changes direction, changes colour and makes sounds. Watch the video below to see how it works.
Please see Year 6 blog for video version.
We have recorded our very own song! I don’t think it’ll make the charts but we’ve had so much fun!
Thanks to Miss Buckley for the amazing lyrics to fit with George Ezra’s Shotgun. The lyrics can be downloaded below so you can sing along if you like!
We hope you enjoy it!
Today’s challenge was to build animals using plasticine. Look at Miss Buckley’s brilliant designs…and yes, Colin is here again!
Look at all the other amazing designs. Do you recognise the different animals?
Colin makes a reappearance!
No guesses needed for who made this!
Happy Easter to everyone!
We designed this message and colourful eggs to hopefully brighten up everyone’s day who walks or drives past school.
Colin, the Easter chick, made by Miss Buckley.
I definitely think this is the winner!
