Important Information

  • Year 4 swim ONCE A FORTNIGHT ON A MONDAY. Children are either in group A or B. Children will need a swimming kit brought into school on this day.
  • Our P.E. day is now FRIDAY and children will need their P.E. kits in school for this.
  • Children may bring in a snack to enjoy during morning playtime. This must be a piece of fresh fruit or veg.
  • Our library day is FRIDAY. This is when children may take out or return books from our fabulous and well stocked school library!
  • Children have the opportunity to change their home reading books throughout the week.  Please make sure that your child is reading at home and write a comment in their reading records. It is wonderful to read parent comments.
  • Children are welcome to bring in age-appropriate reading books from home if they wish to read during quiet reading.  
  • Spelling homework goes home every Friday and is due in the following Friday for the weekly spelling quiz.
  • Once a half term / term, children will be given a Learning Log target.  This is a great way for children to demonstrate their individual skills and interpretations on the work we have been doing in class.  Children will then share their Learning Logs with each other. These will be sent home w/b 7th May and are due in w/b 15th July. (A letter will be given out at the beginning of term with more details.) We are really looking forward to seeing them at the end of term! 
  • Take a look at our long term plan for Year 4 to see what is happening now and what is coming up:

 Tod Treat Art Day

What a fantastic day we have had creating art based on the works of American artist Anahata Katkin.

We had to work co-operatively sharing our ideas and trying out new techniques.

Here is what we created:

You can now see our work on display in our corridor and they look fantastic!

Ancient Egypt Learning Log Work

We have been absolutely amazed by your Learning Log work that you have brought in this week! You have worked very hard at home and we hope you enjoyed sharing your knowledge with your family.

Well done Year 4 - you are super stars!

Here are a few:


All of the pieces of work will be on display after the half term so come and have a look!





Sorting and spotting fronted adverbials

We sorted fronted adverbials into manner, time and place -

do you think we are correct?

We then chose 3 for each group and put them into a chart. Now, each time we come across one in our reading over the next week, we will add it to our tally.


Our History working wall display and art work Spring term 1

Towneley Hall trip

We all had a fantastic time on the 15th January, studying Ancient Egyptian artefacts and mummies.

Violin performance

Year 4 were very proud to showcase their violin skills to their grown ups in December. Everyone has worked really hard developing their skills.

Learning Logs

Tremendous effort and time have gone into all of the work pupils have produced this year so far. We are looking forward to seeing the next batch!
