Week Commencing 23rd November 2020 


Dear Parents and Carers,

As you no doubt will be aware, Year 4 are going to be recording a video of their Christmas performance that will be released on Teams on Wednesday 9th December.  We are writing to you to ask for costumes for this performance.  Please can your child bring in as much as possible from the following items on Monday 30th November:

  • Christmas jumper (to be returned in time for Christmas Jumper Day)
  • Christmas hats
  • Christmas or novelty glasses
  • Tinsel for a scarf
  • Other wearable Christmas decorations

Thank you so much in advance for helping to make our 2020 Christmas performance the most memorable yet.  We hope that the finished result brings a big smile to your faces and a little bit of Christmas cheer.  

Kind regards,

Mrs Walter and Mrs Leary. 

Week Commencing 9th November 2020

4SW have been practising different stitches in preparation for making Christmas decorations in DT this term.

Week Commencing 28th September 2020

For the past two weeks, 4SW have been looking at similarities and differences between people in PSHE.  We have had many an interesting discussion about the challenges faced in our country and beyond – issues with racism and discrimination of minority groups of people, religious differences, and we have even had a look at Donald Trump’s ideologies and opinions. The children have done really well tackling such big issues in a mature manner, listening to each other’s differing opinions with respect and decorum.  They made me very proud to be their teacher. 


Week commencing 14th September 2020

4SW have had a wonderful start to the term, exploring all of our new topics such as electricity in science and the Romans in history.  “Sanitise your hands” has become our new class mantra and is repeated many a time throughout the day, even managing to work its way into our register responses.  The children are settling in well and are relishing the challenges that year 4 presents.
