We have a hard working and busy week in 4K.
In Literacy we looked at different types of non-fiction texts and decided what they were for and how they are different.
In maths we have begun working on rounding. The children have been set homework to round numbers to the nearest 10.
In Music we enjoyed learning the song Mama Mia. We will learn to sing and play this song on instruments over the term.
The children enjoyed their first swimming session although We just assessed them and put them into groups this week. They also had fun doing a range of PE activities.
You should receive all the homework today including Maths, a times tables to learn and Learning Log homework. Also thank you for all the returned letters and slips. We are looking forward to our first trip of the Year to the Ledson Estate where we will learn about tree identification and complete a range of activities in the woods.
Have a good weekend,

Hello and welcome to 4C. The children have had an excellent start to the year and have been very enthusiastic about starting Year 4.
We have done a short topic on Newspapers this week which resulted in the children writing their own newspaper reports about what they’ve been doing in the holidays. It was brilliant to read and hear about all the exciting things the children have been doing!
In Maths, we have been looking at Roman Numerals. Whilst this proved to be tricky, the children really enjoyed making their Numerals out of straws and solving problems with Roman Numerals.
We also started Science this week and the children had an opportunity to explore the grounds collecting and sorting leaves; we all enjoyed this and we had some great discussions!
Swimming and PE will begin on Wednesday. We have not given homework out this week but will do so next Thursday. You should have received a newsletter explaining how homework will work in Year 4. It would be beneficial if children could start practising their times tables at home: Times tables Rock Stars is a good way to do this. Children should have collected a book to read by now and Extreme Learning is beginning this weekend.

Welcome to 4K. The children have made an excellent start to the year. They have be very quiet and hardworking already.
We have had some fun collecting leaves and using scientific language to describe them.
We begun maths by looking at Roman Numerals which the children enjoyed. They can play some games at: http://www.ABCya.com/roman_numerals.htm
In Literacy the children wrote a newspaper report about their summer holidays. They worked hard on this and produced some good writing.

Well we’ve made it! The summer holidays have finally arrived and we are all due a well earned break!
I am so proud of each and everyone of you and I know you will do brilliantly in Year 5. You have all grown up so much since I took over in October and I know Miss Jones will have a great year with you.
I really hope you have all read your end of year report. It is a celebration of all the hard work you’ve done and you should be proud of yourselves.
Thank you for all my presents. I am blown away with the generosity shown, as is Miss Morgan and Mrs Hodgson. Enjoy your time off and I look forward to seeing you all in September (from across the field in Year 1!).

We have had an amazing day in wonderful North Yorkshire, strolling around the little village of Horton-in-Ribblesdale.
We first stopped off at Dry Rigg Gritstone Quarry to look round. We talked about the fact that Horton was originally a miners village and that some people who work there are 3rd generation miners.
Then, we went into the village and looked around. Sadly, we didn’t do our traffic survey as the council were doing road works to the north of Horton so it was access only to the village. Funnily enough, there was even less traffic than usual.
Therefore went for a longer hike along the River Ribble. Halfway through we stopped and had a wonderful picnic. After that, we finished off our hike, including crossing a small beck and headed back into Horton. We stopped off at St Oswald’s Church and had a look inside. It was a beautiful Norman church and it fuelled some lovely conversations linking in with our work on the Vikings. We then stopped off at the Pen-y-ghent cafe and did our bit for the local economy. It is normally closed on Tuesday but because we are such a lovely school they opened up for 20 minutes for us to come in.
After a final toilet stop we swung by the local school that sadly closed down last July. The children were amazed at the size of it!
I am immensely proud of all the class and I couldn’t have asked for a better day out with them. A massive thanks to Mrs Young, Miss Morgan and Mrs Wallace for coming with us and well done 4G!

We have had a busy and exciting week in Year 4. The children have been a pleasure to be with all week and are showing a real maturity and positive attitude at the end of Year 4.
We continued to work on equivalent fractions in maths. In Literacy we worked on using noun phrases and descriptive writing.
Our trip to Horton was so much fun. The children were well behaved and seemed to really enjoy themselves. The couple that run the shop commented on the fact that the children were very polite which was nice to hear. Here are a few pictures:
We we returned, we wrote a leaflet persuading people to visit Horton. Next week we will have a debate on where is better to live, Horton or Farsley.
