Class 4

Welcome to our class!

Your teachers are Mrs Palmer-Powell and Mrs Greenlees and your Teaching Assistants are Mrs Smith and Mrs Cook.

What a fantastic start!

What a fantastic start to the school year we have had here in class four. We have enjoyed getting stuck into our first topic book Knock, Knock. Who's there? and exploring all the 'baddies' in this story, as well as inventing our own! We have learnt all about nouns, adjectives and verbs and we are enjoying becoming mini artists as we paint and draw ourselves in the style of Picasso. Come on in and check out our awesome display! Can you tell who's who? 
We certainly have some mathematicians here with us in class four and as a result our celebrating strengths display is overflowing with WOW cards for love of learning and persistence.
We are currently solving addition and subtraction problems using jottings and numberlines and we are enjoying using the multibase to represent numbers. 
Keep an eye out for our names in the future Olympic games! So many of us are already amazing gymnasts. We have practised our balancing on the apparatus and we are becoming more and more confident using that scary looking A frame. 

Make sure you check out our weekly blogs to see what we have been up to.

Well done class 4!      W/C 8.10.18

We have had an amazing week in class 4! We wore yellow for world mental health day to help raise awareness, we took part in a local walk to explore the human and physical features around us and we had an amazing time with some of the parents who came to our maths open morning. But to top it all off we won both the attendance and lunch time awards in school. We are so proud that all of our hard work has paid off this week. 


Well done Liam!

Today we celebrated with Liam on the golden board for his top strength of love of learning. Liam has had a fantastic week and this top strength has just shone out of him! He has worked so independently this week in his writing and has produced some lovely written work. Well done Liam, keep it up!

Maths open morning 9.10.18

We had a brilliant time at the maths open morning. It was wonderful to have so many parents and grandparents join us for the hour to experience our maths lesson and interact with the class. We hope you enjoyed the carousel of activities and once again thank you to all who came. 

We can take a selfie! 

We used the ipad to take a selfie. What do you think?

Our local walk- exploring human and physical features

We had a fantastic time exploring our local area on Wednesday. We walked past lots of human and physical features and when we returned to school we drew pictures and labelled all of the human and physical features we saw. 
Thank you to our parent volunteers and all satff who took part. 
Also the yellow vests were the perfect colour for mental health awareness day! 

PE every Monday and Thursday

Please bring your PE kits every Monday and Thursday as we have PE first thing! Please provide your child with a kit for these days. If your child has pierced ears please also provide plasters for them to apply. 


Thank you!


Reading is really important. Try to read at home everyday even if it is just for 5 minutes. 

When you come to school each morning, remember to ALWAYS put you reading book in the basket for us to change your books. 

When your child has read at home it would be fantastic if you could write which page number they read up to or even a brief comment on how they did.

Thank you


Maths Monster- class 4

When it is your turn to take home the Maths Monster make sure you teach him something new. Can you teach him how to solve an addition or subtraction problem? Can you show him how to form his numbers correctly? Can you show him how to tell the time?

Don't forget to take pictures/ draw/ write about what you have done together. 

We can't wait to read all about it first thing Monday morning!
