Prae Wood Primary School

Everyone Valued, Everyone Learning

Welcome to the website for Prae Wood Primary School

Year 4 - Blackthorn Class



Our teacher is Ms Charsley and our teaching assistant is Mrs Field.


Our topic this half term is called

'Lands End to John O'Groats'


 For DT we have been considering bridges as part of our topic work. We looked at some famous bridges, including the Clifton Suspension Bridge, and we thought about constructing our own bridges. Once our designs were complete we used spaghetti and marshmallows to create a beam, arch or suspension bridge.

Please have a look at our work-in-progress! 





....and then some finished articles- we felt we had varied success but it was fun trying!

We will use wood for our next bridges!

We have been working very hard on our play,

'The Last Monster in Scotland' 

We hope those who were able to watch have enjoyed it as much as we did!

We are pleased to say Nessie remains safe and well.

In maths, we started our Autumn term by considering different ways of thinking about numbers. Here we are  building numbers and regrouping to show them in different ways.
