Well done to everyone who answered our challenge and tried to persuade us to read their book.  

Last week, we completed our topic on solids, liquids and gases by melting chocolate and making chocolate crispy buns.  We all really enjoyed it!





Sunday 16th April

Happy Easter.  I hope you are having a lovely holiday.

Have you been busy reading?  If you have, can you read a book of your own and persuade us to try it?

                   You could:    design a poster

                                       write a book review

                                       write a poem  

or anything you can create to inspire us to read your book.  Make sure you bring in your ideas and your book on Monday 24th May.  I can’t wait to hear them.

Sunday 26th March

Happy Mother’s Day!  I hope you liked your child’s card.  They certainly enjoyed making them.

Last week we were very busy developing our hockey skills and a group went to Wickersley to play in a competition. 






We also completed our model car competition.  Ask your child about their certificate.

Y4 helped raise money for red nose day.





Saturday 18th March

Thank you to the people who came to our meeting about our visit to Castleton.  If you couldn’t make it or if you think of any questions please come in to see me.

Last week we finished making our model cars and had our races.  Everyone did a great job.












Parents’ evening times have been handed out so please check if you have your time.


Sunday 5th March

We learned a lot on Tuesday and we all managed to produce an animation based on Snow White.















In one animation Snow White decided to marry one of the dwarfs instead of the Prince.






We also began designing and making our vehicles.  Some people even started cutting their axels.
















We had lots of different book characters in our room on World Book Day. Wow, don’t we look amazing!






Here is our Quick Recall Facts Sheet.  Y4 Spring QRF


Saturday 25th February

We are looking forward to the staff at the CLC visiting on Tuesday.  We hope to create our own animations based on the story of Snow White.  Have you thought about how you will twist the story?

Thank you to the people who helped us raise money for technolgy resources.  We worked together to choose what we wanted to buy and hope to begin designing and making our vehicles next week.


Sunday 12th February

We celebrated all the children in assembly on Friday and they all received a certificate for their contribution to the pantomime.

Saturday 4th February

Wow!  Didn’t the children perform an amazing pantomime! 

Oh yes they did! 

If you were lucky enough to see it live, why not write us a letter to tell us about the parts you liked best.  If you took some photos, please send us a copy. 

Thank you to all the grown ups who helped us with costumes and props.  You did a brilliant job.  A special thank you goes to the lady who filmed the panto on our iPad. You did a great job. 🙂 

Have a look at the Snow White page to see more photos.

Saturday 28th January

Tickets for the pantomime have now been distributed, so please ask your child if they have still got them in their bag!  There is still time to request further tickets before the performance on Friday.  All the children are really looking forward to it.  Oh yes they are!  We hope you are too.

Our spellings this week are homophones, words which sound the same but have different spellings.  It is really important that you talk to your child about what the words mean as they need to understand when to use the words.  Here are some examples.


Can you create a poster to advertise our pantomime? Homework

Sunday 22nd January

Have you written your version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs?  How many words have you used?


Why not try some of these maths games to help with your times tables.

Thank you to all the grownups who have helped the children put their costumes and props together.  They all look great.  We are now putting our programme together using the photos we took on Friday.  Be careful if you go into the forest!

Thursday 5th January

Happy New Year!

We have now had a read through of our script (which the children wrote sections of).  Everyone has a part and knows what their character will be saying and the costume that they would like their character to wear.  There is no need to buy anything new, often costumes can be borrowed from family and friends. Please come to see me by Friday 13th January if you have any questions about this.

The date for the pantomime is Friday 3rd February at 2pm.  This will be a ticket only event but each family will be able to buy as many tickets as they would like (depending on fire regulations!)  More details on how to get tickets will be sent on Monday 16th January.  All the children are very excited and have worked very hard when reading the script this week.

Today we all worked on our rugby skills.  Here are a few photos.

In science, we have been thinking about whether things use mains or battery electricity.



Thursday 17th November

On Friday, we made a stir fry using the Roman ingredients.  We all agreed that it was very tasty.  The children made comments such as,

“The texture was nicer with the lettuce because it gave a bit of crunch.”

“The onions stood out as a different flavour as they were sweet.”

“The onions were soft in my mouth.”

” I liked it because it is healthy because it is made from vegetables.”

We also made a fruit salad.

Welcome back!  We have had some excellent homework about holidays and Brazil to share with the class.

Today, we thought about the Paralympics which begin in Brazil tonight.  We had a go at a few of the events.  We think that the paralympic athletes are superhuman and have decided to have, “Yes I can” as our class motto.
