Welcome to the web page for 4C. Please take time to look around the school’s website for key information. Also, make sure that you visit this page as often as possible as it is here that you will be able to view what your child is doing in school each week and every term via the Class Blog that appears below.
Below you will also find important information about your child’s PE slot as well as advice about reading at home.
PE for 4C is scheduled for each Thursday afternoon and it is therefore essential that your child has their PE in school on this occasion. It is also important that each item of PE kit is clearly labelled with your child’s name in case things get lost.
Reading at Home
Reading at home is essential for your child to make the progress necessary with their school work. Your child will have a Reading Record Book that they bring home each night. If they read to you or another adult, or to themselves, please sign the Record Book to say this has happened. They will then get credits at school towards a range of reading certificates that they will receive in assembly.

With Christmas just around the corner 4C are trying to brighten up their days by learning about sunny Florida in geography. As a school we are linking history and geography to English so that we are producing different types of written work about our topic. This week the children have been writing a postcard home to a family member describing what it is like to be in Disneyland while hurricane Irma is hitting the state.
In maths we have moved onto solving one and two step multiplication word problems. The children have been using their knowledge of the written formal methods to help them solve difficult problem solving tasks.
In English we have just started our new performance poetry unit. As a class we have been looking at the sound collector and the magic box. In the next few day the children will be planning and writing their own versions of these poems. Once they have been written the children will be given the opportunity to perform their poems to the rest of the class.
In art we are continuing to look at the Victorian artist William Morris and the style of art that he creates. In the next few weeks the children are going to be creating their own stamps out of everyday objects and will be using them to create William Morris style print pictures.
A letter was sent home last week to inform all parents of the new programme that the school have signed up for in maths. Times tables Rockstars is an app that teaches children their times tables in a fun and up to date way. All children need to be logging on at home and practising on a regular basis. If your child is having trouble accessing the app at home please let me know.
