Hi everyone, here is an overview of what Year 4 will be learning throughout the Summer term.
This week Year 4 have started completing their daily mile challenge. Each day this week the children have been keen to get their running shoes on and have been running around our school playground. Each day the children try their best to run around as many times as possible and see if they can beat their number of laps. Please see photos of our daily mile challenge below.

Daily Mile Challenge!

Well done to all the children in year 4, for making these amazing pop up Christmas books.

This has been our DT project over the last 4/5 weeks and the children have learnt new skills each week to make their own books. This has been an enjoyable and sometimes challenging project so the children should be very proud. These have now been sent home with the children.



Today the Rainbow Theatre Company visited us to perform Dick Whittington for our pantomime this year. We were able to get involved and enjoy the great story.







This week we have been enjoying finishing off our Nativity and doing our final dress rehearsals so that we were ready to film on Wednesday. Although we were nervous and there was a lot to remember, everyone did brilliantly with their lines as well as the beautiful singing. Well done Woodpeckers!

A busy week in Woodpeckers with lots of practice for our Christmas play. The children have impressed us with learning the script and their acting skills. They can't wait to perform for you. ๐ŸŽ„


This week we have also enjoyed our Viking Day experience by taking part in many activities during the school day. The day started with the children sharing their wonderful costumes, all members of staff in year 4 were amazed by the effort and commitment that the children put into their outfits.  


Throughout the day the children answered the question ‘What have the Vikings done to help us today?’. We looked at how the Vikings used runes to help them write and we used these to decode our own messages. Also, we investigated the Viking raid of Lindisfarne in AD793 and created our own eyewitness accounts. Finally, we learnt a Viking inspired song that linked into the Viking raids in England.

Science Week - w.c 02/11/2020 - 06/11/2020


As part of Science Week at Eynsham Primary School, Woodpeckers have been getting their hands dirty and stuck into lots of fun activities. During the week the children were visited by a Science Oxford and Fizz Pop Science, who delivered some interesting workshops for the children to enjoy. The children were able to learn about sound and how our body protects us from viruses such as common colds. 


Other highlights of the week included the children being able to plan and carry out their own science investigation, being able to answer their very own scientific enquiry question. As you can imagine we had some very interesting ideas, but overall it was a great success. Also, the children took part in the Marble Run competition, this was a great hit with the children as they were able to work as science engineers to build their own marble run. Please look through the pictures below to see some of the children fantastic creations. 


It has been a very successful week at in Woodpeckers class, please come back to see what we will be doing next in Woodpeckers class.
