We are always asking our children to learn their times tables and this is no exception in year 4. These are some of the songs we have learnt and will be learning this year:
3 times tables
4 times tables
8 times tables
6 times tables
7 times tables
9 times tables
Also remember that you all have access to TTRockStars!
Have fun! Mrs T-W
Welcome back everyone!
I hope you are all as excited about the new year as we are.
We are carrying on with our reading prizes this year. To work your way through to the prizes we are asking your child to read 3 times a week to an adult, if they do they will move up a number every week. Prizes are give at weeks 10, 20 and 39.
Year 4 will be having their records checked every Thursday so please make sure they are in school.
I hope you are enjoying your last week of 'school'. We have been having fun at school looking at our memories as well as making some new ones (most of these involve singing and dancing).
Can I remind you to please send me a photo of yourself (firstname.lastname@example.org) as I am trying to complete a little to replace our class photo this year.
I hope you enjoy your Wednesday - we are going to be artists today!
Good morning all and happy Friday! I know when I spoke to some parents yesterday I mentioned about being able to pick up some new reading books for your child(ren) in exchange for their current ones. We are doing this based on time slots so that we can allow for social distancing. Please see the table below to check your day and time to exchange.
|Surname beginning with...||Date||Time Slot|
|A, B and C||Monday 15th June||10:00 - 11:00|

The books will be in the main office for you to collect, please use the marked lines on the car park to ensure social distancing, there is hand gel to use on your entry and departure and a box for you to put their current books into. All staff have selected books and placed them in a named plastic wallet for you to collect.
Please also remember that oxford owl is a free online library that we would recommend for our children as it covers texts for all ages and genres.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend I will see/speak/write to you all next week.
I know a lot of you have been doing lots of reading and have finished your school books, I have shared this before but it might help you with some ideas for your next book.
There is also the oxford owl website that has access to some of these books and lots more: https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page/
You never know you might find something new you enjoy reading.
Good Morning Year 3!
I know some of you will have been accessing some of the things we have in school but this week I will be asking you to use purple mash so I thought I would show you how to do it.
You need to go to RMUnify:
Then you need to turn your username (the same one you login to the computers at school) into an email address:
Your password is the same as normal.
If you can't remember your username or password please feel free to email me at email@example.com and I will send you the details.
Have some fun exploring some of the tiles and have a go at some of the things you have been set
Year 3's Interesting Facts!
This week I asked year 3 to share an interesting fact so that I could share it with everyone: let's see what we have found out!
Did you know… it is illegal to stand within 90 meters of the Queen without socks on! - Mrs T-W
Did you know... the Eiffel Tower is shorter in winter than in summer. The Eiffel Tower is made of iron, which expands in heat and contracts in the cold. In warm weather, the tower grows by as much as 6 inches, and also leans slightly away from the sun. - Amelia
Did you know... tigers have striped skin, not just striped fur! - Jack Fox
Bonus joke: What do you get if you cross a dinosaur with a pig? Jurassic Pork
After speaking to some of you more recently I know that a lot of you have been keeping up with your reading but have read all of your school books. Remember that we always love you to read and reading for pleasure is very important. If you are struggling to find books that inspire you the image below might help you discover a new author or series of books.
What can you do with a milk carton? I found this the other day and thought it was amazing! What could you make? I have seen come people make elephants and penguins over the last few weeks but would love to see more! Remember you can email your teachers with your creations. Have fun! Mrs T-W
Would you like to be a designer? John Lewis and Waitrose have a new competition open... why not give it a go? Good Luck!
I saw this post today and thought it might interest some of you. I know that a lot of people have been doing displays in their window and some people have been trying to theme them around events that we have coming up... why not give it a go.
Remember parents it's not just for the kids, you can take part too.
I found this and thought I would share it just in case you find yourselves at a loose end...
British Sign Language
Fancy taking this time to try and learn something new? What about sign language? Give the alphabet a go!
PE with Joe
Make sure that you stay active! Joe is doing 30 minute PE session Monday - Friday: Give it a go! Mrs T-W
Year 3: Writing Instructions
The class made some fabulous rice krispies cakes before writing a recipe for them. Needless to say, they enjoyed the process very much!
Year 3 and 4: DT Focus Week
For their DT focus, LKS2 have been developing their sewing skills to design and make a Stone Age animal out of felt. They have not only practised different stitches but also participated in a range of sewing related activities, including ones that develop fine motor skills (essential for sewing!). All the children have blown us away with their hard work and super achievements. Well done!
Year 4 Art
As a part of our Ancient Egypt topic we have been able to make our own sarcophagus. What do you think?
Year 4 Christingles
Today we looked at the celebration of Christingle and got to create our own!
LKS2 Christmas Craft Morning
Thank you everyone who came and supported our Christmas craft morning, some of the children's creations were amazing and we couldn't have done it without your support. We hope you have a lovely time over the festive period and enjoy everything we have planned.
Year 4 Creativity Week
This week we have had the pleasure of having four student teachers from Newman University to help us learn about the Ancient Egyptians. Throughout the week we have learnt all about farming from the time. We have been very productive and created salt dough tools, been on a treasure hunt, junk modelled farms, built virtual farms on Minecraft and created a dance about making bread. We have enjoyed the week and have learnt a lot!
Below are just a handful of photos depicting our week.
As a school we are updating the corridor displays to a winter theme. We have used the different poems that we have created over this half term and are showing them in our displays. We have one depicting a winter scene which we based our Haiku poems on, then we used the 'Home for Christmas' advert from 2016 to create Cinquain poems and finally we created Winter and Jack Frost acrostic poems positioned in a frosted window.
WELL DONE YEAR 4!
Remembrance in Year 4
