"Love one another as I have loved you in our home, school and Parish family"

Year 4 - Mrs Roston  (Mrs Miller TA)

I would like to welcome you and your children to Year 4. We are looking forward to a busy and enjoyable year. We have many opportunities planned to engage and excite the children to help them enjoy all of their learning.

Children will take part in daily Maths, English and Spelling lessons. They will also participate in RE, PE, Science and Spanish lessons throughout the week. All other subjects will be taught through our Imaginative Learning Projects. These projects allow children to develop their knowledge and skills in a creative and engaging way.

Your child will be given a reading book and a reading record for you to comment in. Mrs Miller and I will write comments in the book to help you and your child know what they need to do to develop their reading skills. Please try to listen to your child read for 10 minutes every night and write a comment in your child’s reading record. This will really help your child to become a confident, fluent reader. I am passionate about reading and I can’t wait to share lots of stories with the children this year and help them to develop as readers.

 Your child will receive homework every Friday. Please try to support your child in completing their homework and returning their book to school by the following Wednesday.

 Our PE days will be on Wednesday and Friday and children will need to have the correct kit.

 The children have settled into Year 4 really well already and I am excited to see how they grow and develop over the coming year. There are a lot of exciting challenges ahead of us, including new books to read, new friends to make and new skills to master… I look forward to you sharing in those times and I am really looking forward to getting to know you and your children this year.


If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to talk to me.

Friday 3rd April

Good morning everyone. 

Did you manage to clap for the NHS and all Care Workers, last night? 

It's a small thing we can each do to show our thanks to those who are working hard helping others.

I thought you might like to do something a little bit different today.

I have set you a Scavenger Hunt! 

You can do this safely in your garden or by looking through the window.

Remember to stay safe and do not wonder off from your home.

Scroll down further to find today's maths challenge and even further for yesterday's answers.

You can share your work at:

It would be great to see you!

Here is today's joke:

What's the best thing about Switzerland?

I don't know, but the flag is a big plus.

Dan and Emily from One Life Music have added a weekly worship.   You can find this at:

 Have a fun day today. Stay safe!

Love from Mrs Roston

Good morning everyone!  I hope you are finding enough to do to keep you busy. 

I have seen pictures of some children working, on our school twitter page.  It would be fabulous to see some of our Year 4 children sharing what they have been doing during their time at home. 

Here is today's joke.  (My nephew told me this one!)

What do you get when two giraffes collide?

A giraffic jam.

Did you join in with Joe Wicks this morning?

If not, try to join in tomorrow.  It is such a great way to start the day!  

Below, you will find two maths challenges to solve.  I will put the answers on here tomorrow. 

Good luck!

Today, the children visited the Herbert Art Gallery.  They looked at Anglo-Saxon artefacts, heard the legend of Lady Godiva and created a print inspired by Anglo-Saxon designs.  We passed the Statue of Lady Godiva, on our way to the bus stop. What a fantastic way to begin our topic!

Today, the children sang a song called Lady Godiva.  We hope you enjoy it!

Today, the children made cookies.  Chocolate or raisin...which do you prefer?

As an introduction to our new topic, Year 4 visited the Lunt Roman Fort today.  The children were amazing!  They learned about how successful the Roman Army were at keeping the Celts out of their forts.  They found out about armour, weaponry and some fighting techniques the Roman Army used.  They listened well and interacted with enthusiasm.  They also asked some excellent questions to find out even more.  We are all looking forward to learning more over the coming weeks.

Today Year 4 led the Rosary. Thank you, children.

Here are a few of our children hoping to be elected onto the School Council.  They shared their manifestos with class. Good Luck!

The children had an amazing day which included a yoga session.  A huge well done to them all for trying some very challenging positions. 

Wow! We have started our time in Year 4 with a bang!  Today, the children explored a variety of aquatic creatures.  They observed closely their shape and fine details and made detailed drawings of them.  A great way to start our first topic: Blue Abyss.
