We enjoyed our trip to Ness Gardens even if we did get wet ☔️ We identified different insects and vertebrates when pond dipping and going on a mini beast hunt.

Hot seating David and Goliath. We thought about the qualities God looks for in us.

We were very excited for our first lesson in wider opportunities. 

We all learnt our first note and learnt some musical vocabulary such as tempo, pitch, crescendo and beat. We also learnt to identify some rhythms using 'tea' 'coffee' to help us count the beats. 

Year 4 are very enthusiastic and can't wait for their next lesson!
