 In our year group, we have three classes named after books by David Walliams - Gangsta Granny, Midnight Gang and Queen’s Orang-utan. The teachers in Year 4 are Miss Fitzpatrick, Mrs Sutherland and Mrs Gates. 
We are also lucky to have lots of other adults working with us: Mr Mason, Mrs Elyard, Mrs Kahn, Mrs Jackson, Mrs Zveaghinteva, Miss Forster, Ms Blake, Mr Riley and Mr Hill. 

If you want to get in touch then please email our class addresses:

 (4GG – Miss Fitzpatrick)

 (4QO – Mrs Gates)

There are several learning links on this page if you are looking for homework help or online activities. We have lots of exciting learning to look forward to so keep checking back on the blog to find out what we are up to…

Today we enjoyed taking part in lots of World Book Day activities. 

Our theme was WORDS. We had some fabulous and creative costumes so well done everyone. Word choices included extinct, Wednesday, happy, artist, magical, sparkly and sporty. You may be able to spot these in the photos! What do you think the other words might have been?

Some children dressed as book and story characters and they looked wonderful as well.

We have sent out a reading challenge booklet which we would like the children to share with you. We will be checking how they're getting on closer to the Easter holidays. There are lots of House Points available to those who complete as many challenges as possible by then.


This term the Year 4 children have been using the online platform: Turtle Academy Playground.

The children have been learning how to program algorithms, debug problems when they arise and use ‘Tiny the Turtle' to help them imagine the direction of travel.

The children completed this terms learning by creating interesting repeating patterns using selected lines of code.

We are very impressed with their developing digital/coding skills.
