Welcome to our page! We are the Gifted Gorillas, also known as Class 9. Our teacher is Miss Wigston and we are lucky enough to have Mrs Rourke and Mrs Hanley to help and support us with our learning too!
Keep checking our page for regular updates on all the exciting things we've been doing!
Spellings are given out every Monday, for a spelling test the following Monday.
Every Friday, a piece of Maths will be given out which is due in the following Tuesday.
We will also be expecting the children to read for 10 minutes per day, and record this in their reading journals.
Brilliant websites to use to find out more about The Industrial Revolution and The National Railway museum:
This week Year 4 have been learning about forces and magnets. We spent Thursday, investigating if different surfaces have an effect on the motion of a car. We used ramps, toy cars, different materials and measuring tape to find out. Below are some pictures of our investigation.
Year 4 visited the National Railway Museum in York. We took part in two workshops, and looked around the fascinating museum! We had such a fantastic day, and we even got to see a replica of Stephenson's Rocket! Below are some photographs of our day!
Over the summer, the children were asked to research and create a project-style homework about 'The Industrial Revolution'. The children have really impressed Miss Wigston with their fantastic work, which includes: models, fact files, canvas art and photographs and writing about their visits to the National Railway Museum! Below is some examples of our outstanding projects.
