Mr Deakin - Year 4/5 - 2020/2021

Hello and welcome to the year 4/5 class page. It’s brilliant having all the children back in school! I will update the class page regularly with some of the exciting things we get up To alongside videos and other items which the children might like to access. We’re excited to see what this year brings...😁

A very close run race between us and year 5/6 class
Mr B cheated a little so with a VAR intervention, we think we won 4-2.

The kids have been brilliant throughout our electricity topic and I think we have some future STEM stars...keep building and designing! As Nikola Tesla says, β€˜ I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work. I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.’
