Spring 2 Week 5

Stars of the Week: Gabrielle and Cruz

This week in English, we have been planning and writing a newspaper report about a sudden volcanic eruption! Class 4 used their homework to help structure their report and thought of some very catchy headlines to start. Some of the headlines were ‘Etna’s Exciting Explosion’, ‘Violent Vesuvius’ and Mr Henshaw’s favourite ‘The very rude int-eruption!’

In Maths this week, we have been looking at addition and subtraction of money. Class 4 worked hard to use column method for both the operations, and weren’t thrown off by the ‘scary’ decimal point.


Spring 2 Week 4 -PE

Stars of the Week: Chiugo and Jacob

In PE this week, we have been looking at the different skills required in invasion games; such as netball, hockey and basketball. The first skill we looked at was agility, the importance of staying on our toes so we can change direction quickly. Chiugo and Jacob listened really well to each skill and performed them brilliantly – especially when they were weaving through the cones and balancing a basketball on a tennis racket!

Also this week, we have been completing lots of assessments. Class 4 have worked incredibly hard with all of them, and their continued progress is a true testament to their effort.

Spring 2 Week 3 – Animals UK

Stars of the Week: All of Class 4

On Wednesday this week we had a fantastic visit from Animals UK, who introduced the children to lots of amazing animals! All the children in Class 4 behaved exemplary throughout the whole session (by staying quiet and calm when the animals were being brought out) and Animals UK complimented us on how well behaved they all were. Well done Class 4!



This week in Computing, we have been learning about the different ways data is collected; such as questionnaires, surveys or measurements. Class 4 used their data collection knowledge to collect data of their own, by measuring the different light and sound levels and recording them.

Spellings this week:











Spring 1 Week 2

Stars of the Week: Scarlett and Ethan

This Week in Class 4 we have been reading our World Book Day book – Rock Bottom! This story is all about a boy who wants the best part in the school’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream but it all goes wrong! We used this story to help us re-write A Midsummer Night’s Dream, by changing the plot and problems that the characters face. Scarlett and Ethan came up with some brilliant ideas of how they can change the roles of Demetrius, Lysander, Helena and Hermia.

Stars of the Week: Aarav and Daniela

This week was History Day! Our topic this term was the Tudors and so we all dressed up in the style of Tudors and had a very fun day completing Tudor-style activities!

Spring 1 Week 5 – Maths

Stars of the Week: Belén and Eyoel

This week in Maths, Class 4 we have been looking at decimal numbers. We learnt that a tenth is larger than a hundredth and started to compare two or more numbers to find the largest. Belén and Eyoel showed great focus towards the value of each digit and compared them to other numbers.

In History this week, we have been looking at Tudor inventions. Class 4 researched some facts about the different Tudor inventions, from the creation of a fork to the flushing toilet! They created some great presentations about each invention, along with their function and purpose.



Spring 1 Week 4

Stars of the Week: Cam’ron and Astrid. 

In PE this week, Class 4 we had a brilliant cricket session with some local coaches. The skill they were focusing on was straight arm bowling, and there was lots of things to remember each time! Cam’ron and Astrid worked incredibly hard to keep their arms straight and showed great persistence. Don’t forget ‘Stance, Star, Step’.

In English this week, we have been planning another secret mission for Jack Briars who has become a spy for Thomas Cromwell. We discussed where he might be asked to go, and the things he needs to find along the way. Then, we created out own class code and wrote out Jack’s missions using a variety of numbers and symbols.

Spring 1 Week 3

Stars of the Week: Thea and Javon

This week in Maths, we have been looking at adding and subtracting fractions. We discussed the different ways to represent fractions and how we can use this to help us in our calculations. Javon and Thea worked particularly hard to keep their methods clear and neat, and move over the denominator each time.

In History we looked at the different aspects of Tudor life – from the food and drink the consumed, the entertainment they enjoyed, and the clothing they wore. Class 4 created their own discussions around the different lives that wealthy Tudors enjoyed, compared to the poorer servants.
