Love, learn and live in Christ!

Hello Parents, Carers and Children! We are in the last half term of the school year. It has been a very challenging time for us all recently and I know I do not need to tell you how myself and the staff long for the day we can all be together and school life returns to normal. Remember to just do what you can when you can. You are doing a brilliant job! As always you can email your child's teacher or myself with any concerns you have. We want to do all we can to support you. We are here for you. The message from the Government is still to keep social distancing measures in place, regular hand washing and vigilance. Stay safe and stay strong! Mrs Hodges


Welcome to Year 4!  

Happy Birthday Mrs Hartley! Have a lovely day! Love Mrs Eland, Mrs Rowlands and all the children in Year 4 xx

Hi there Year 4, we are going to have a Wimbledon theme to some of the activities this week as the famous tennis tournament would have normally started on Monday 29th June this year. If you aren't familiar with Wimbledon maybe you could research it and find out where it happens, when it first began and who some of the past winners have been. 

 Mrs Eland and Mrs Hartley

There are some fun tasks you might want to take a look at on the official Wimbledon website. Just follow the link to learn more.

If you are having any problems at all don't hesitate to email us at

Don't feel you you have to send copies of all the children's work. If you just send through the pieces we ask for below it would be lovely to see those.

3.7.20 7 Habits

Today we are looking at the 5th habit - Seek first to understand, then to be understood. This is all about listening to others first then you can make your point to be understood. Copy out the table below and complete it. Try really hard to listen to others for the rest of the week. Maybe send us an email to let us know an example of when you've really listened to somebody else.

Seek First To Understand Then To Be Understood

2.7.20 Science

Read the powerpoint below, then, complete the sheet for string telephones - work from the sheet with two stars. You will need plastic cups and string

PE - For week beginning 29.6.20 (Do this when the weather is fine at some point)

You will need a tennis ball or other ball and a racket if you have one. 

For each task do as many repetitions of the activity as you can in 120 seconds. 

  1. Like a ball boy or girl, from a start point roll a ball towards a a target roughly 3m away, use an object such as a large stone/bucket, plant pot etc to aim for. Run to collect it, go back to your start position and repeat.
  2. Throw and catch a tennis ball against a wall as many times as you can.
  3. Throw the ball as high as you can. Count how many times you can catch it in the 120 seconds time limit.
  4. If you have a racket of some kind count how many times you can bounce a tennis ball up in the air before dropping it.

When you have completed each task, if you have time, do them all again and see if you can beat your scores from the first round.
