Superhero Finale!

To celebrate the fantastic writing the children have produced we decided to have a superhero finale.  We learnt the words to our favourite superhero song and created some dance moves.  For the big finale we all wore our superhero masks and strutted our stuff in the school hall. We recorded the performance in different parts as we were unable to attach the full video as it was too big.

Enjoy our superhero show 🙂

 

 

Textile Portraits

We were commissioned by Brilliant Bags Company (Mrs Mason) to design a new lunch bag which of course needed…Continue Reading

Don’t say said!

In Literacy, Year 4 have been writing their own imaginary world stories. We have been reading Harry Potter to give us some ideas.
