Year 4 Updates


posted 19 Oct 2017, 13:50 by Maria Cross

Each evening Year 4 have reading, tables and spellings as homework as well as practising their instruments. The children are expected to read for 20 minutes each night, they also have 5 different spellings to practise {which are from the Year 4 list in the home-school communication books} and every child has a TT Rockstar login so they can learn their tables.

On Wednesday come to school dressed up as your favourite Roald Dahl character - the teachers will be dressed up too. There are lots of activities planned. Should be fun.

Easter Holiday Homework

posted 29 Mar 2017, 03:20 by Daniel Broughton


Over this holiday, I would like the children to write me a magazine article for the National Geographic about an interesting place that they have visited over the Easter break. I have sent them home with a booklet to complete this in, but if this gets lost, I have attached a PDF copy to this post.

It would be great if they could include some photographs too.

In addition there is mymaths set (looking at decimal place value).

The mymaths is due 18/04/17.
The writing is due 24/04/17.

Spring half term homework

posted 14 Feb 2017, 05:16 by Daniel Broughton

The children have all been sent home with a booklet to complete their homework for half term in. It is due back in on 06.03.17. If for any reason the booklet gets misplaced, I have uploaded a PDF version to this webpage and to the class Edmodo site.

Enjoy the holiday...
Kind regards,
Mr. B

Clarinets - Reeds

posted 17 Oct 2016, 00:49 by Daniel Broughton

As a school, we have provided the children with their first (and in many cases 2nd and 3rd) reeds for their clarinets. Unfortunately, our supply has now diminished. This will mean that the children will need to supply and future replacements themselves. They are not expensive and can be purchased via Amazon or via any good music shop (Dawson in Chester for example). If the children take good care of their reed, it should easily last at least a term. 

They are using a Clarinet Vandoren 1 1/2 reed (that we purchased from Amazon).

Thank you for your support...
Mr. B

Music - Wider Opportunities

posted 5 Sep 2016, 13:32 by Daniel Broughton

Hi all,
Music 4 Life will be beginning music lessons with the year 4 children on Wednesday 7th September 2016. With this in mind I have sent home the letters regarding the music lessons and the loan of musical instruments ahead of this. If they can be filled out (excluding the details of the instrument, as these will be sorted by the music teacher on Wednesday) and returned by Wednesday morning, the children will be able to bring their instruments home as soon as possible. If the letters are not returned, this can lead to some delays.
Thank you for your co-operation.
Kind regards,
Mr. B

Writing Homework - Due Thursday 30th June

posted 24 Jun 2016, 07:12 by Daniel Broughton

Using the short video on our class page to remind you about the features of persuasive writing, I would like you to write me a short piece of persuasive writing in the form of a speech to convince me to give you 10 minutes of extra break. You can either hand in a written copy of your speech or you can video yourself reading it.

I look forward to hearing your work...
