We really enjoyed our Christmas party and there are definitely some dance superstars in Year 4!
We had a great time making our Christmas cards and elf baubles.
As part of our final worship we all sang our traditional Christmas song - the Twelve Days of Christmas. I think we were all exhausted by the end!

Over the last 2 weeks, Year 4 have made excellent progress with their violin playing and have been really enjoying their lessons.
In PE we have continued with our dance lessons. We compared two different types of dance - Greek dancing which we looked at as part of our geography topic on the Mediterranean and dance as an expression of worship in which Year 4 worked hard to develop their own dance sequences with a partner.
