The Blessed Barakah

Welcome to the blessed Barakah.  Firstly, we thank you for visiting our webpage.  We have been busy bees! We have done some amazing learning this term.  Brace yourself for an enjoyable read.


We have been busy preparing for our great poetry performance in June.   Perfecting our intonation and performance skills, we have been learning a range of poems by a range of poets.  The theme of our performance is ‘animals’ therefore our focus has been animal poems.


We have been very busy mathematicians focusing mainly on decimals.   We have been learning the value of tenths, hundredths and thousandths and different ways of representing them.  Furthermore, we have been learning to add, subtract, divide and multiply decimals both pictorially and in written methods.   In addition to this, we have been solving tricky word problems on decimals.


Year 4 have been learning about electricity this term.  We have been learning about conductors and insulators and how they affect a circuit.  Added to this, we have been busy building our own circuits using batteries, wires and other electrical components.

Ancient Egypt Day!

We had an incredible learning day where we were entertained by an expert on Ancient Egypt.  On this day, we made pyramids using sugar cubes and we danced to ‘Walking like an Egyptian.’   Flaunting our dance moves and our incredible costumes, we also learnt the Ancient Egyptian number system.
