Merry Christmas from year 4!

Thank you for those of you who were able to attend our carol service and drum concert this week! The children did a great job and it was so lovely to see so many of you there supporting them.

A special thank you to those parents who were able to walk with us to the church too!

The children have worked very hard this term and should be very proud of themselves.

We look forward to starting our new topic in the new year, which will be kept a secret until nearer the time. We will then send out the new home learning pyramid that will give the children ideas of what they can reserach.

Home Learning: We have updated abacus, my maths and bug club for the children to use over the holidays.

The year 4 team all wish you a very Merry Christmas and a happy new year.

Madness and Mayhem in the Mary Garden!



This week we have been writing up our newspaper reports about the mysterious vandalism that occured in the Mary garden last Thursday. The children have been great detectives and have found lots of evidence to help find the culprits. They found: Footprints, grafitti, a sign, turned over tables and trays and pots hung over the trees. The place was a mess!


In maths we have been learning about the different types of angles: right angle, acute and obtuse angles and also the different types of lines: parallel and perpendicular.


In spellings we have been learning about homophones and words with ou in such as courage, flourish and round.

The children could practise any of these areas for their home learning this week.


Just a reminder that next week is our Carol Concert at Sacred Heart Church. The Concert starts at 10:15am on Tuesday 16th of December. All are welcome! We hope to see you there!

Thank you for your support,

The year 4 team!

p.s. If you can help to walk with us to the church you are always welcome!


Home Learning Success!


We have been so pleased to see so many children over the course of this topic really getting involved with their home learning. We have had lots of wonderful musical instruments from colourful maracas to guitars made of rubber bands that can be tuned!

It has also been great  to see the research the children have been putting into sound and how it is produced. We hope to see this engagement continuing up until the end of the year. Some children have started creating powerpoints or writing up their own experiments from home.

Remember that children’s home learning can also be focused around RE and these ideas can be found in home learning diaries!


Dates for the diary:

A quick reminder that our Percussion concert is on the 15th of December at 2:30.

The following day (16th December) we have our Carol Concert at Sacred Heart Church.

Further information about both of these can be found at the office.


Thank you,

Year 4 Team
