Year 4 Excellence board

User Rating:  / 0

Year 4 looked at the life and works of Louis Armstrong, who is a famous singer and brass player. We have loved our brass lessons so far and hope to play like Louis one day! 

As part of Black History Month we learned about the impact he made on the music industry, in particular Jazz music. 

We loved listening to his famous song, What a Wonderful World. We discussed how wonderful our world is and then created some of our own art work, using pastels, to accompany the words in the song. 

 The art work created was wonderful, a particular well done tFlo (4AF) and Autumn (4LM) whose art was selected for our Excellence Board. Well done!

For the past 5 weeks, our focus story type has been beating-the-monster stories and we have been focussing on the story of Rumpelstiltskin. The children have been story mapping and thoroughly enjoyed acting out the story. We have been looking closely at the vocabulary and acting like detectives, entering the palace where the young girl was kept for three days looking for clues of what we would find if we travelled to the palace years later. This week we have been writing setting and character descriptions and both Mrs McIntosh and I are very impressed with the descriptive writing the children have produced! Next week we will be writing our very own beating-the-monster stories. We can’t wait to share some of those with you.


Thank you for your hard work at home with reading, spelling and times table practise. Please can you continue to read for at least 10 minutes every night with your children and learn spellings and times tables regularly too. Please do put what your children are doing at home in their planners so they can receive regular house points!


Next week in maths we are looking at comparing 4-digit numbers and rounding to the nearest 1000. Here are some great interactive links for the children to access whilst at home.

Welcome to 4AF and 4LM!

What a super start to the year we have had! It has been great to have all the children back in school. They have settled well and have enjoyed lots of different activities this week.

This week the children enjoyed art in a day and looking at Hokusai as our focus artist. We discussed how print making was his famous technique and recreated our own versions of his famous print ‘The Great Wave’.

We have also started our new geography unit looking at the effects of natural disasters. The children enjoyed creating their own volcanic eruptions and had some super knowledge surrounding natural disasters! We cut open a scotch egg and discussed how it resembled the earth and its structure.


We can't wait to inform you more about what we have been upto over the next few weeks!

Year 4 Using Showbie

User Rating:  / 0

showbieDear Parents,

We have set the children in Year 4 up on Showbie. This is a free app that is downloadable on devices and can also be accessed through the internet browser. On here the children can upload pictures, videos or simply just tell their teacher what they have been up to whilst at home. We will share different websites that we think will be useful for the children to access whilst at home. We think this will be a good way to keep up to date with the children’s progress.

Log in details will be sent via text to Year 4 parents

Kind regards,

Year 4 staff team
