It’s a mystery!

We’ve been having lots of fun in English, looking at clues from our new text. The classroom looked more like a crime scene on Friday but we were all diligent detectives and managed to make thoughtful and considered predictions about the text, plot and characters.


The Explorer!!

The children have been LOVING our class text, The Explorer by Katherine Rundell and this week we have looked at character and setting descriptions. Inspired by Rundell’s exciting plot and delightful descriptions, the children are going to write their own version of an adventure story. Today we planned our story and created interesting characters who will find themselves stranded in the rainforest.

So you can enjoy your child’s adventure story, I will be sending a copy home tomorrow evening – happy reading!

Super 6!

We are really becoming masters of our times tables in year 4. This week we’ve been focusing on the sixes with great success. We played games on Friday to help with our rapid recall and everyone had lots of fun!


Habitat Heros!

In science this half term we’ve been learning about living things and their habitats. Mr Batey and Dylan have kindly made us a hedgehog house which we’ve placed in the school gardens. Over the next few weeks we’ll be checking (and hoping) to see if a hedgehog chooses our house for his hibination habitat.

We’ll keep you updated!

What a fantastic year!

This week, we have been reflecting on our time in Year 4. We are getting ready for some new adventures in Year 5 but have made memories and friends that will last a lifetime. Have a look at all of the lovely things we have managed to squeeze in to one year! What will you remember the most?
