Snow Day

If you are unable to make it into school, do not worry! I have set you some tasks on Purple Mash which can be completed today. 


Maths: In your 2Do's, you will find 'Multiplication Problem Solving' and 'Using Known Facts'.

English: Today is our Big Write day and we are describing the firework display from Chapter 7. In your 2Do's, I have set you a storyboard task where you can plan your ideas, then you have '2Write' to write up your report and add some colourful firework pictures too. Try to use expanded noun phrases, adverbs and fronted adverbials to describe the scene vividly and include how amazed the audience were, especially throughout Lila's and Lalchand's display. There are two grammar tasks set in your 2Do's to help you with these, one is a fronted adverbial activity and the other is a noun phrase task. 

I have also added 'Catherine Wheel' to your 2do's which is a coding task for you to explore. 

Additionally, log into your Century Tech and complete at least 3 of the assigned nuggets. You can also complete nuggets on other subjects if you finish all of these tasks.

If you do not have access to the online work, complete your Big Write on paper. Then, write a plan on how you could investigate this question: Where is the best place in the home to dry wet washing? 

Link this to our science lesson on evaporation and condensation. Think about how you would carry out your investigation, what you would measure, what would you do to keep it a fair test and what equipment would you need to carry out your investigation.



Welcome to Year 4 – Dream Class


In Year Four, we dream BIG! We set our goals high and strive to achieve all that we can.


Welcome to Year Four. 

This year, we will be finding out all about the achievements of the Ancient Egyptians and learn about how transport has changed through the years in our history topics. We will explore the hills and mountains within Europe in our ‘Survival’ topic, learn about earthquakes, volcanoes and tsunamis in our ‘Angry Earth’ topic, and find out more about the land use within the local area in our geography fieldwork focus.

Using Maths No Problem, we will develop our mathematical skills and we will also be working hard on learning all the multiplication facts in preparation for the multiplication assessment at the end of year Four.


We look forward to showing you how we develop and progress as we work hard in our learning.


“Don’t be scared, dare to have fabulous plans. I encourage you to not be afraid to dream, to have great ideals, to be builders of hope.” Pope Francis.


If you have any worries or concerns about your child, please do not hesitate to contact me via my staff email on



PE: Our PE days for this term are Tuesday and Friday. Children are to come to school in their PE kits on these days.


Important information

No jewellery is permitted in school, except for watches (no smart watches please).

Earrings are not permitted- if your child has recently had their ears pierced, they are required to be covered with plasters before coming to school. 

Long hair must be tied back. 



Reading is a key priority for all children at OLSA this year. As such, it is vital that your child reads for at least 20 minutes per day and logs this in their reading diary. This should be a combination of reading to themselves and reading aloud to others.

It is expected that children will be completing Accelerated Reader quizzes regularly, this is monitored and children choose their own books based on their reading zone.


Homework and Spellings

This year, we are moving to using an online homework platform called Century Tech. Each week, children will be expected to complete at least 3 maths nuggets from their personalised Century dashboard- the link for this is at the bottom of the class page. Your child has received their login details at the start of term, which will be stored in their reading journal.

*Spelling lists will no longer be given as homework, all spelling will be completed during school hours.


Year Four went to Whitworth Museum to learn about the history of transport within the local area.
