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.

It's been another busy week for 4SE. Here are just some of the highlights: writing, peer-assessing and correcting & improving a set of intructions on how become a Roman gladiator in English; Roman numerals and finding 1 10 100 1000 more or less in Maths; introduction to Hinduism in RE; learning how to throw the perfect dummy pass in tag rugby in PE; starting to find out more about Roman mosaics in Art; the author visit to Stockport Plaza; and much more - all toppped off with a wonderful Show & Tell on Friday!




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. 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.




School trip...

to Stockport Plaza to see the author Cressida Cowell!

No swimming

Hello everyone, I've had a few questions regarding swimming...

There will be NO swimming this year in Year 4. 

Swimming is done in Year 3 only, but was done briefly in Year 4 due to those who missed out during Covid.

Hello everyone!

It was great to properly meet everyone in 4SE this week. The children settled into the new school year so well, with some new rules and procedures to get used to. After chatting about what everyone got up to in summer, we got straight into lessons - with a lot of group and individual work.

Here's some of the things we were learning about this week: numbers to 1,000 and rounding to the nearest 10 in Maths; giving verbal instructions, prepositions and imperative ("bossy") verbs in English; the digestive system in Science; and on Friday - in honour of the Queen - 4SE coloured in corgis, played Commonwealth flag bingo, and saw how jam was made with the help of Mrs O'Keefe.

The children also got their first homework of the year on Friday - spellings! Your child should have their spellings sheet inside their orange spellings book. This needs to be completed and handed in by Wednesday morning.

Remember PE kits on Monday! Mr Smith will be teaching 4SE (as I have PPA on Mondays) and will be there in the playground during pick up.




Welcome to everyone in 4SE to the brand new class of 2022-23!


The Year 4 team are excited to get to know you all.  We have so many new and exciting topics and subjects to cover in our curriculum.  We know you are going to work hard and really enjoy it!


Enjoy the last few days of your summer holidays, and we look forward to welcoming you back on Wednesday 7th September! 


Parents, please continue to check this page for weekly updates of what the pupils will be covering each week.


Mr Evans, Mrs Parker, Mrs O'Keefe and Mrs Horner
