  • Musical instruments for lessons will be safely stored in Year 4's cupboard - don't forget to take them home at the end of the day!

  • Healthy snacks - if your child does not have morning toast, they may bring in a healthy snack for morning playtime.

Spring Term message from Mrs Mabe: 

Welcome back to Year 4, the evenings are finally getting lighter and we are on the count down to Easter! This term we will be doing lots of exciting learning. Through our Geography topic  "Misty Mountain, Winding River' we will be exploring the journey of rivers and the physical features of mountains. We will even have the opportunity to explore our own River Ribble!

Times tables! Times tables! Times  tables! In the summer all children in Year 4 will have to complete the Multiplication Check. Everyday, we will be learning our times tables in class.  Any opportunity to practise at home will support our learning, whether it's reciting them in the car or practising them on TTRS.

Please have a look at our 'fridge words' linked below. These words are based on the vocabulary we are exploring within our Geography and Science lessons this term. How many of these can you learn? Put them on your fridge as a reminder!

Please have a look at the documents below so you know exactly what we will be learning this half term. 

If you have any questions - please do not hesitate to ask - I am happy to help!

Atmospheric Moon Art in the Gallery

year4 teacher (F.Mabe) on: Year 4 Blog

Our amazing artwork has been chosen to be on display in the Lytham Heritage Art display during February. This work was inspired by our Moon Week and involved us looking closely at the moon and using our painting skills to create an atmospheric image.  Effie was chosen as a prize winner - for the second year in a row - well done!!

Forest School Fun

year4 teacher (F.Mabe) on: Year 4 Blog

This term we are enjoying our time in Forest School and the Come Outside Curriculum. Even when it's a rainy day, it doesn't stop us getting outside and enjoying our outdoor learning! Today we used the rain to listen for the different sounds it made on different surfaces and why! We used our knowledge of irreversible processes when cooking popcorn over the fire. We created a waterproof shelter using a tarp and we embraced all the fun to be had with mud! Great outdoor learning Y4!
