Hey 4 Egyptians,

Hope you are all well and looking after yourself. This is not the way I planned to tell you all that I am sadly leaving :( I will miss you all very much, it has been such a pleasure to teach you and get to know you all again. It has been lovely to see how you have all grown up since year 2. We have had a lot of fun, jokes and laughter, I will be leaving with great memories. I am sorry for having to say goodbye like this. Hopefully I can come and visit once we are all back at school. Continue to work hard, stay safe and have fun. I wish you all the very best for the future as you all deserve it. I would also like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the parents for their continued support and wish you all the best too.

Goodbye 4 Egyptians, thank you for being such an awesome class!

The children have been working on performance and poetry skills. Sit back and relax and be prepared to smile.

Spring 2 topic overview

Thank you, to all our parents and carers who were able to attend our math workshop. The children really enjoyed sharing their learning.

Year 4 love books! We love to share books with our families of all ages. Many of us like to pile onto someone’s bed and share books. Sometimes, we all sit together in the kitchen or lounge. Wherever we go, sharing is the key. On a Friday, one child from each Year 4 class will bring home a bag of books. If your child is lucky enough to be chosen, we would be grateful if you would ensure that your child’s thoughts about the experience are recorded in the notebook. Happy reading, The Year 4 team.

Green Screen Performance- Children wrote , presented and performed their work. I think you will agree, we have some budding stars of the future.

A huge than you to Mrs Hooper, from Molly and Peg, for coming in and showing us how to make some magical wands.. We really enjoyed learning some new skills and most of all using our wands to cast some happy spells.

We have been on a secret mission to help Harry Potter create some magic potions. We needed to convert units of measure to complete the mission.

During Book Week, we were able to share a story with children from Year 1. It was lovely to see our Year 4 children take on the responsibility of being the 'storytellers.' The children enjoyed their stories and made some new friends.

We had a very special artist called Kama come and visit us. She taught us how to draw using lines, shape, and tone. We all drew Hedwig from 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.'

We have been writing stories that develop tension and suspense. We used 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone,' as a stimulus for our writing.

Autumn 2 



The term will begin, with the children continuing to read, ‘How to Train Your Dragon.’  The children will then use the story as a stimulus to plan and write their very own dragon story. Towards the end of this term we will be exploring a story written by Michael Morpurgo called, ‘Coming Home.’ The children will be taught skills of expanding sentences, using adverbial openers and subordinate clauses. We will also work on skills of editing and re-drafting in order to continually improve the quality of or written work.  


SPAG lessons will focus on adding prefixes to root words. Children will explore spelling the words as well as developing an understanding of what the words mean. A list of weekly spellings has been stuck into reading logs.  Please remember to practise these with your child, ready for a weekly spelling test or dictation.



Week 1- Equivalent fractions

Week 2- Comparing fractions

Week 3- Introduction to decimals

Week 4-Time

Week 5- Time

Week 6- Negative numbers

Week 7-Decimals
