We enter to learn, we leave to achieve!

Background Slideshow


Welcome Page


Welcome to the class 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.



4C will have PE weekly and it is therefore essential that your child has their PE in school everyday. 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.

Class blog Friday 12th October 2018


In English year 4 have been writing action packed narratives including short pieces of dialogue “We punctuate speech with inverted commas and we start a new line when there is a new speaker. All the punctuation also goes inside the inverted commas.” CC


In Maths we have moved onto solving multiplication and division calculations mentally. We have been looking at how we can use factor pairs to break up difficult calculation. “A factor pair is two numbers that when times together make a larger number e.g 15 could be 5x3.” RCT


In Science we have been using our own instructions to help us build a mini beast mansion. “We put straw, sticks and other materials inside wooden crates to make homes for small animals.” TB


In art we have been finishing off our Roman and Celt puppets and trying to make their limbs move. “We used split pins to help us move parts of the puppets body.” AB


In P.E we have been doing football cricket and invasion games. “In order to play well we have been taught how to work as a team and use our team mates to help us.”


Next Monday both year 4 classes will be visiting Colchester castle as part of our Romans history unit. We will be building Roman round houses, looking at artefacts and hearing stories about Roman times in the tunnels that run underneath the castle.
