Have a lovely day! 

08.04.2020 Good Morning Year Four!

Hope you are all well and managing to do some holiday things at home as well as a bit of school work - why not take a book outside to read today? Maybe you can make a den to read in or even put a tent up?!

When you are inside, maybe write an email to a family member or to one of your school friends telling them what you have been up to. Remember - keep practising your timestables!

Have a good Wednesday 

Rudie has sent me these great pictures to show how hard he has been working! What a star! 



Tuesday 7th April

Good morning children!

I hope that you all well.  Remember that it is the Easter holiday and you should be spending quality time with your family.  If you would like a project to do together, here is an idea - Who is in your immediate family? What other relatives do you have? How does their family link together? How many people do they have in their family? Why not spend time looking through old photos and talking about the people in their families.  What family stories can they tell? How is life different to their parents? Grandparents?  Now, let's get creative!  Create a piece of artwork entitled ‘Family’. This could be a drawing, a self-portrait, a sculpture or collage.  Can you challenge yourself to create a family tree?

Send me pictures of your work - I would love to see them.

Have a lovely day.

Monday 6th April

Good morning children! 

I hope that you all had a lovely weekend, enjoying some time in the garden with your family and of course, staying safe. 

It would be a good idea to spend twenty minutes on TT Rockstars today on the Soundcheck game - see if you can beat your own personal best!!  Also, practise those common exception words.  Just choose five, find out what they mean and write a  sentence using each one.  Remember those fronted adverbials!!

Remember to send me any pictures of you getting creative.

Have a lovely Monday.

With best wishes,

Mrs Church smiley

Look how busy Leah has been! Great work!



Hello everyone!

I thought I would put on some pictures of the work people are doing at home. Have a look and see if you can spot yours! Keep sending me pictures, I am really enjoying seeing what you have been up to! Mrs Church x

In art we have been finding out about sculpture. We will be using clay to create our own Viking figureheads. Here are some pictures of use practising the skills we will need to produce our finished work.




In Geography we have been looking at OS maps to find places and learn about keys and grid references. The children really enjoyed finding different symbols on the maps and talking about where they would choose to live:




On Friday the children completed a circuit training session to challenge their fitness. They had great fun! We will do this again at the end of the half term to see how much they have improved! Go Top Hats!!



Busy builders!



We have had a great first week back in school! We are studying a history topic this half term and the class have really enjoyed our lessons so far - ask them about the toilet roll!!

We have made some brilliant models of Anglo-Saxon villages:
