Week Commencing 12th April 2021

In 4JL, we have been trying our hand at observational sketching; this week we were looking at plants. Here are a couple of examples from some of our class.

Week Commencing 1st March 2021

Working from home didn't stop us from celebrating World Book Day - teachers included! Mrs Leary certainly gave her postman a fright when she opened the door dressed as a scarecrow! Can you work out which book we are all from? 

Week Commencing 22nd February 2021

In Science this week, 4JL have started to look at sound. One of the tasks the children were asked to do was to make their own drum kit. Here are some of the examples.

Week Commencing 8th February 2021

In Science this week, we have been looking at water in its solid state- ice. The children made ice sculptures with ice cubes and they looked at the effects freezing had on different types of water- coloured water, salt water, boiled water plain tap water and sparkling water. Each ice cube was different. With the coloured water, although in the liquid state the colour was evenly dispersed in the solid state the colour was in the middle of the cube with clear water around the edges. Here are some of their examples!

Week Commencing 1st February 2021

In Year Four, over the course of the term the children have been designing and making their own pop-up fairytale books. They have been working extremely hard at home and their work has been amazing. We have chosen a few examples to show you.

Week Commencing 25th January 2021

A hi-light of the week was making our own 3D model of a Saxon village. Those of us who couldn't get hold of the resources drew a picture of one instead.

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.

This week the children in 4JL enjoyed cooking a healthy meal but more importantly, the majority of the children loved eating it too. They all took a copy of the recipe home to share with you. We would love to see pictures of you cooking and eating the meal at home.
