Dear parents and carers,


It is lovely to have the children back in school after the half term break.

P.E. will be on a Wednesday and Thursday this half term and children should have their full PE kits in school including outside warm clothing.

Thank you,


Mrs Ellis, Miss Jackson and Miss Sutton

Homework - Set Wednesday  25th November to 2nd December

There is :

Purple Mash - Times table Checker - I have put this on for this week for the children to experiment with and then it will be left on there for them to complete weekly to support their times table recall.


Also the grammar on Purple Mash is the possessive apostrophe activity again - don't rush it and see if you can improve your accuracy from last time.


My Maths - Please complete the task set for Roman numerals.


Spellings - on the sheet as normal

Also the topic homework pick 'n' mix menu. We have already had some excellent homework emailed to us.


If your child has trouble logging on, please let us know and we will give them the opportunity to log on to do their homework at school. All children also have a Microsoft Teams login and password now in case we need to set work online or teach on it in the future.


Thank you

Roman music visit from Red House On Tuesday October 13th

Year 4 expanded on our learning about the Romans with a visit from The Red House.  Mr Carr brought a range of Roman artefacts with him for us to investigate.   Call My Bluff was an entertaining game where we read out 4 different descriptions of a Roman object,  and had to guess which was the correct definition.  Miss Jackson and Mrs Sutton were really impressed by the facts and information that we were able to recall from our learning this term.   Freya S showed excellent risk-taking, leading a Roman music band and creating a unique rhythm on the Scabellum (a Roman foot castanet).  Eloise accompanied her on the Sistrum, an oval shaker, and Mr Carr stood at the other end of the hall to play the Aulos, a double flute that sounded like bag-pipes.     Mr Carr had prepared wax tablets for us to experience how Roman school children would have written.  The vast majority of Year 4 enjoyed carving words and pictures onto a wax tablet, but a few said that they found this activity quite challenging.  A minority of the class loved it so much that they wish we did all of our learning on wax!  It’s definitely a bit messy though.    Written collaboratively by Year 4

The children had great fun learning the French words for parts of the body using puppets to help them.

Dear parents, please see below the newsletter for this term, together with the curriculum map, homework menu and also the Romans knowledge organiser.

Transition day - clay dragon eyes. We all enjoyed learning the slip, score and blend technique
