Year 4 2020 - 2021
We have had such a great start to our new school year and I am so impressed with the enthusiasm and attitude of everyone. It is lovely to see a full class of pupils having fun, learning and playing together again.
If anyone wants to contact me, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you.
More information about what we have been up to in class, can be found in our galleries at the bottom of this page!
Should we trade with the Raiders?
Using our noticing skills as geographers
We used our noticing skills to look on a map for settlements which have an influence from Anglo-Saxon times. Some of these ended in 'ham, borne, ton, bury, wich'. It was challenging but we enjoyed finding as many places as we could.
Thank you very much for all the generous gifts you have all contributed towards Harvest.
Writing Anglo-Saxon Runes
Felt making with Mrs Taylor
We had a fantastic, energetic, exciting lesson with Mrs Taylor who showed us how to make felt. We are learning about the goods which were transported on the canals during the Victorian times and our local area was famous for making hats. These would have been taken on a barge and delivered using the canal to other areas of the country. Many hats were made out of felt and we had the chance to make felt. It was very tiring but great fun!!!
Anti-Bullying Week 16th November
We wore odd socks to begin 'Anti-Bullying Week'. We learnt about how we can all be different and still loved by God. We discussed vocabulary linked to bullying and talked about our own experiences or thoughts about it. We could talk about the differences between being mean, rude or bullying. As tables, we created a short drama about a story image linked to bullying and acted this out in front of the class. We know that bullying means STOP- Several Times On Purpose.
RE display reflecting our learning about the symbolism of light. We looked at Christianity- Jesus being the light of the world, Hinduism (Diwali) and Judaism (Hanukkah).
Sneak peak for Christmas...
We went for a lovely walk up to Werneth Low on Tuesday afternoon to film our part in the Christmas play. As you can see from the sneak preview, we were shepherds and sheep. Watch out for the final production of the nativity nearer Christmas.
It is very strange without everyone in school at the moment, but I am so proud of you because I know you are working really hard with your learning at home. I am missing you, but I enjoy seeing you on Zoom and I am so impressed with how responsible you are becoming with your own learning. You are stretching your learning muscles and growing your brain! Please keep it up!
Please make sure that you attach photos of your learning in your books when you 'Turn in' on Google Classrooms or email me.
All our learning this half term will be done through Google Classroom. I will set work EVERY school morning for you to check at 8am so please check. Read the stream for a suggested plan for the day.
We are famous!! Check this out...
Before Christmas Mr Halligan recorded you all singing the song that you collaborated to write. It was linked to our Viking learning challenge where you made links with your knowledge to create some amazing lyrics. Have a listen and watch some of the artwork and diary entries you made during the learning challenge too. It is very catchy!

A 3D river cake!!
Yes, you did read right- Alexia and her mum have made a fabulous 3D river cake! This is a great example of using your imagination and having a growth mindset. The detail in the design was amazing with Twirl pieces representing logs, Mini Eggs as rocks and broken chocolate cake for boulders. It also included edible flowes and a colourful gushing waterfall down the mountain. Not only did it look good, it tasted delicious too. We cut into the cake during our Zoom session, and after I sampled it, I reluctantly shared it with all the pupils in class too. We all had blue tongues afterwards!l Thank you very much Lexi and her mum for brightening up our day Well done.
