Welcome to Year 4
Welcome to Year 4 from Miss Nash and Mrs Wilson!
In Year 4 the children have the opportunity to build on their successes from their time in Year 3. They are now well into the swing of things in Key Stage 2 and looking forward to the year ahead. In Year 4 we always try our best, have a go and are not afraid to make mistakes.
We will be exploring lots of exciting, engaging and interesting cross-curricular topics this year such as 'Ancient Egypt', 'Burps Bottoms and Bile' and 'Chocolate'. Some of these topics will have a Creative Homework project linked them, giving us the opportunity to show our interests, strengths and talents.
Regular reading at home and school will be encouraged along with an emphasis on learning times tables and the spelling of key words - as these skills will all help greatly with the English and Maths topics in Year 4.
Miss Nash, Mrs Wilson and the children promise to work hard so that we are able to be the best we can be!

Visiting the Park
At the start of their new 'Parks and Gardens' topic, Mrs Kitching asked F2 what they would like to find out. One answer was 'more about parks' hence our fun trip to the park this afternoon!
F2 enjoyed a spot of pond dipping this afternoon as part of their 'Parks and Gardens' topic. They caught water snails, dragonfly nymph, fly larvae, water fleas and pond weed!
Fun at Twycross Zoo!
On Tuesday this week, Foundation boarded a big yellow bus and set off for Twycross Zoo as part of their 'Safari' topic. They had a brilliant time looking at all of the animals, eating their lunch and having some hands on small animal experience in a workshop in the afternnon....
Snow is falling…
F2 have been having lots of fun exploring the snow today! They have built a snowman (Olaf, in fact), made snow angels and looked at their footprints on the ground. They even tried counting how many snowflakes were falling, but found it very tricky!
F2 did some AMAZING gymnastics yesterday! They worked hard on their tucks and star shapes and could not wait to show other people what they had learnt... They were also very brave with their climbing and did not give up when they were finding things tricky. Mrs Kitching is very...
A Windy Trekking Tuesday
When we went Trekking today, it was SO windy that we nearly got blown off our feet! We decided that it would be a good idea to make our very own kites and had lots of fun working together to join the materials and then fly them.
Well, what a busy day Foundation have had! A fabulous party with lots of games, Christmas dinner, seeing Santa and a disco after school - phew!
Wow!! What a wonderful Nativity! The children in Foundation and Key Stage 1 really made us proud with their super singing, delightful dancing and tremendous talking. 3 cheers for the cast of 2014...
Superheroes for the day!
F2 loved dressig up for Children In Need - check out our wonderful costumes!
