Bad weather this week (boo!) so we ended up doing some cardio for PE

Building food webs in science. What eats what and how much!?

Freshening up our throwing and catching skills for rounders

We had a friendly competition to help us remember our times tables.

Making predictions about the book we're reading this half term (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory)

Fratricide, evil uncles and She-Wolves! The story of Romulus and Remus has it all.

Welcome to year 4!!!


Time to learn about Ancient Rome, secure our addition and subtraction skills, discover what eats what and hopefully get a bit taller!


For parents who want to help their children out this year, Times Tables are hugely important.  If you get any time at home to make sure that your child is confident then you will give them an advantage this year!


Myself (Mr Etheridge) and our wonderful TA, Miss Kattenhorn (Karen) bid you welcome and look forward to a great year!



There are many ways that you can help your child at home. Above is a link to what your child will be learning in English this term and how you can help them at home.
