I am so thrilled with the models, jewellery and Tudor themed baking that Class 4B have been producing during lock-down. Please enjoy our slideshow of their work. More will be added as submissions are made.
Hello to all of year 4. We hope you are keeping safe and well.
You should all now have access to Class Dojo. All of the content from this blog will now move to Class Dojo. So to complete tasks and keep in contact with your teacher, use Class Dojo from now on.
We look forward to seeing your work.
Mrs Aristidou, Mrs Yates, Mr Bentley, Mr Gooderham.
What another glorious day it been. I hope that you have all taken the opportunity to spend sometime outside today either in your gardens or going out for a walk with your families (of course staying at least 2 meters apart from others), yet not being rude by not saying hello or giving a smile.
Today, I spent some time out on my bike which I have to say was long overdue! I enjoyed an 18 mile ride burning a total of 1320 calories (that means an extra chocolate biscuit with my coffee). Yippee!
I stopped a couple of times while riding to take the beautiful pictures below. Its amazing how everything is starting to burst into life. The blossom in the hedgerows, the rape seed growing in the farmers fields. I loved how I found the cheeky pheasant basking in the sun on top of the straw, and the beauty of the church standing proudly on the village green.
Finally, I wanted to say how proud and emotional I was last night when our whole village came our to applaud the wonderful work the NHS are doing at the moment. They really are superheroes.
Stay safe everyone and love and best wishes to all.

Hello 4AY (and other year 4 children reading this!)
We hope you are well and keeping busy whilst at home. Are you enjoying the tasks we set you? We bet you're working very hard and impressing the adults in your home!
We are really loving the sunshine...! We hope you're managing to get out in the fresh air and run around.
We know you love hearing baby George and Eli stories so here are some updates from us...
Mrs Aristidou and George have been playing lots in the garden. George insists on getting EVERY toy out of the summerhouse in the mornings and putting them on the grass. He's being very helpful in the garden and particularly likes watering the plants with the 'Wawa' (watering can!!) As always though... He's being a little cheeky. Sometimes, instead of watering the plants, he pours the water on the patio to make a puddle. He loves splashing in puddles!! We've also been reading lots of stories... George's favourite at the moment is a book about cars, trucks and lorries!
Mrs Yates and Eli have also been very busy. They have been reading lots of stories... Eli's favourite book is about a lion! He likes to shout out a huge ROAR quite often!! They have also been baking cookies. Eli likes to help stir the mixture but Mrs Yates has to be careful the ingredients don't go all over the kitchen!!!
Look out on TTRockstars where we will be responding to your challenges!
Remember ... We're really proud of all of you. Keep trying your best.
Mrs Aristidou and Mrs Yates
Year 4 were exceptionally lucky today that Patrick Popat was able to take time out of his busy practice to come and speak to the children about teeth and how they should look after them.
We were also treated to a specially recorder message from the Singing Dentist for the children at Rushmere Hall. Feel free to look him up online or by following the links.
Below are a small number of images taken from today.
Have a lovely weekend
To celebrate World Book Day 2020 - all children across the school where able to share their favorite book with a child from another class. Below are some of the pictures taken of class 4B sharing their books with R2 (Panda Class). More pictures of the other Year 4 classes to follow.
We were also really fortunate to have Ms Maxwell (a real author) in school today with us sharing her children's book called 'Sick'. This tells the story of three germs who get into a boys body for not washing hand properly. Very topical at the moment!
As part of our learning in literacy this week, the children were able to experience what a real evacuation would have been like (complete with air raid siren). We were very grateful to be joined by a very intimidating billeting officer (Mrs Harries), and a most efficient air raid warden (Mr Rix) who made the experience come to life. Children were then split from their class groups and sent to the homes of their 3 class teachers to be told in no uncertain terms the rules of the house! A fun and rewarding literacy lesson for all concerned.
In class this week, Year 4 have continued looking at the text The Lion and the Unicorn. While trying to imagine that they are Lenny, one of the main characters, we have been working on creating a diary entry written by him. The children have looked at words to describe different emotions and feelings as well as trying out different sentence structures.
Ask them about if, if, if sentences, outside (inside), sentences and 2AD sentences and see what they tell you. Maybe ask them to give you an example from their writing.
Below are some fabulous examples of their work.
Enjoy your weekend.
The Year 4 Team
In year 4, we are still thinking lots about our 'Toolkits' for learning.
Here is a challenge for when you are at home and school:
1. Make eye contact and track whoever is speaking.
2. Learn non-verbal cues and communication.
3. Support and encourage each other to become the best we can be.
