As part of National Science Week, we all became 'Fixperts' - people who solve real life problems for real people. We had a volunteer visit the class who explained her difficulties carrying out a number of tasks following shoulder surgery and limited use in it thereafter. The class worked in small groups to find and design a product to provide a solution to different problems.
World Book Day
Year 4 Knights came dressed up as their favourite book characters for World Book Day.
They read out extracts and talked about their favourite books and then took part in a book swap with other pupils in the class.
Stockport Air Raid Shelters
Learning all about the life of a child in WWII in History, Year 4 pupils were all ready and raring to go to the Stockport Air Raid Shelters to find out even more.
First, children put themselves into the role of an evacuee as we walked through the shelters. After a rationed WWII lunchtime, children were ready to visit the museum. At the museum, children dressed up and learnt about the home life of families living during the war period.
Overall, we had an amazing trip and all the children were superbly behaved demonstrating all the Springfield Values – Well done, Year 4.
Mrs Betts, Mrs Jackson, Mrs Stevens and Mrs Gresty would like to thank all the children, parents and carers for the lovely Christmas presents and cards we have received. We are really grateful for your kindness!
Finally, we would like to end the Autumn Term by wishing all the children, parents and carers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Year 4 are learning about Electricity in science this half term. As part of this topic, children were given a variety of materials and asked to construct their own switch. Children discussed how switches work in groups and then began to experiment with the materials provided. Children created a variety of switches.
As part of anti-bullying week, Year 4 children created some amazing acrostic poems on the topic “RESPECT'.
Trip to Dewa Experience in Chester
What an amazing time was had by all in Chester on Tuesday 16th October!
Year 4 learnt what a tough life it was being a Roman soldier. Armed with battle shields, they marched as soldiers under the ‘strict’ instructions of an experienced legionary to the Roman amphitheatre. Children watched in horror as a gladiator fight took place between parent volunteers but we are glad to report that no-one was hurt.
Year 4 Bishops demonstrating in school what they learnt from completing their science research homework.
Children were asked to use salt dough to produce a model of their teeth and then discuss why the teeth were different shapes and link to the functions of the teeth.
Some children went onto to complete the challenge and discuss why other animals have different teeth according to their diet.
The children had a brilliant time learning!
We would like to say a huge welcome to all our pupils, parents and carers to Year 4 Bishops.
What a great start we have had with children creating a Class Charter that outlines rules that will help Year 4 Bishops to learn better in our class environment.
