21.10.22 - Half-Term Sponsored Read
To celebrate and encourage a lifelong love of reading at home and school, we are running a sponsored read over half term 22/10/22-30/10/22.
The project is being organised in conjunction with our local Usborne Partner, and all the money raised will go towards brand new books for our school. In addition to the sponsorship money, Usborne will also donate up to 60% of the total raised in EXTRA FREE BOOKS to the school. So, for every £600 raised, we will get an extra £360 in FREE Usborne books!
We always aim to beat our last year’s target which was £1000 in sponsor money with Usborne donating an additional £600 of books for free if our target is met. This will give us a total of £1600 to spend on new books and resources for our children.
Please help us to enhance our reading resources for pupils by encouraging your child to spend a small amount of time each day either reading to themselves, to others, or being read to. They can read books, comics, magazines, newspapers, menus, websites, recipes, poems, leaflets, instructions – anything with words! For younger children in EYFS they can listen to the adult read their books and that still counts.
The class who have the most recorded minutes will win an extra free book and a small treat! All children will receive a certificate for taking part.
If you are able to support our sponsored read, please find on the reverse a sponsorship form and an extra reading log for your child if they wish to use it to record their reading. Please send any money in a named envelope with the class name and the amount raised alongside the forms by Friday 4th November.
What an amazing visit we had to see Cressida Cowell (the famous author of the 'How to Train your Dragon' series) launch her new books at Stockport Plaza today. She told us lots about the characters in her new book as well as lots of tips for writing. We learnt about her childhood, with summers spent on an island off Scotland where she hunted for dragons in the cliffs. Her advice was to follow in her footsteps and enjoy writing and drawing for the sheer pleasure of it, right now in primary school - to keep our own notebooks for research and ideas. The creation of our own dragons was strongly recommended and so, utterly inspired, we changed our plans and that's exactly what we did this afternoon. We'll be adding the finishing touches to our dragons in the morning and look forward to writing about them. Perhaps we'll send her a copy or two! A few of us were lucky to be invited to meet her just before we caught the bus and managed to ask a few questions.
What another fantastic week!
Everyone has worked so hard and achieved so much. This week we have been counting in thousands, following instructions, learning about digestion and talking about what makes a good friend.
We have shared lots of stories and given examples of how we have been good friends to one another.
Welcome back Year 4CD.
Today has been such a great day and I have enjoyed getting to know you all.
You have all started the year off in a great way and you should be extremely proud of today’s hard work. I hope this continues for the rest of the year!

PE lessons will begin on the second week back, week beginning 12/9/22.
Hi everyone! Year 4 have been working so hard since returning back to school. We are very proud of them all. Well done! We have uploaded a digital copy of our newsletter that was sent out last week which contains a lot of information about this year. It can be found in the downloads section alongside our PE Kit expectations letter.
Hello Year 4! We hope you all have had an amazing summer. Myself, Mrs Parker and the rest of the Year 4 team, are very much looking forward to meeting you all. We can’t wait to get to know you all and work with you this year! We have amazing classrooms, all the stationery you will need and a fantastic library filled with a wide variety of books. You have so much to look forward to this year and you can have a sneak preview of what we will be learning this term in the downloads section. This information is in the Autumn Curriculum Overview.
Chatterday homework can also be found in the downloads section. Chatterday is designed to meet the needs of each child and the options coincide with what your child is learning at school. Please take time to create beautiful and inspirational work. All work should be something children are proud to show off. Take time and have fun with it. Please ask for paper if you do not have any at home.
