Welcome to Hawthorn - Year 4

Teacher: Andrea Bill

Teaching assistant: Anne Woods 


For the last two weeks of term the only homework is to learn the song words (by heart) for Olivia!

Just in case you missed our ukulele concert, this was a song from the rehearsal.

Wellbeing week was a great success...

Jess taught us more about fruit and vegetables and we played a blindfold quiz game!

We powered the bike blender to make delicious smoothies!

Hawthorn are enjoying working with Worcester Warriors to develop their rugby skills. Dave Rogers visits every Wednesday morning to coach, whatever the weather!

This shows our first session when 'The Beast from the East' was about to hit! The field was completely frozen, so the all-weather court came to our rescue! Well done to the children who dug out gloves and hats for the session - very wise!

During British Science Week, Hawthorn made good progress with their electricity topic. They are making different types of switches in these pictures.

The Christmas Talent Show was great fun - here are some Year 4 contestants in action!

We enjoyed our day in Worcester Cathedral at Pilgrim's Quest. 

We were given tours, played a decision-making Quest game, met other schools, tried out some great art and craft activities, sang a song and two of the children even had their feet washed, like real pilgrims!

Isla is welcomed into the Cathedral and has her feet washed, like real pilgrim! We were singing the pilgrim song while this happened.

We spent the afternoon being creative...

The decision-making Quest game made us really think...

Homework in Y4 Hawthorn



























Our Bishops Wood Trip

We visited the Bishops Wood environmental centre this week and discovered such a lot. 

Activities included:

  • learning about the water cycle and recreating it by walking up, around and down the hill with sponges as clouds which rained at the top
  • making water filters with different sizes of gravel, sand and paper which we filtered muddy water through
  • working at a water treatment and usage station, testing ph levels, dipping sheep, washing cars, watering crops, etc.
  • thinking about the availability of water around the world and carrying water as people without taps do every day
  • thinking historically about how people have moved water for their use, making a shaduf as a group to take water from the pond

How many of these things can you find us doing in the photographs below?
