Teacher: Mr Haslam


Welcome back!


I hope you all had a lovely Easter break and you are feeling refreshed and ready to go. We will be continuing our Egypt unit for the first few weeks this term and continuing to work on decimals in maths. We will be starting a new literacy unit focused about writing a diary entry. This will be linked to our guided reading books. 

I will be taking a keen interest in reading this term and will be checking the children’s reading diaries everyday to see how they are progressing. A small amount of reading each night makes a huge difference! I will also be pushing times table practice this term and will be sharing with you each week what times table we will be working on. Children will need to practise that times table  for a test at the end of the week. 

Other information:


- PE remains on a Thursday and Friday. Children will need their PE kit on these days.

- Parent's evening is on Tuesday and Thursday via Zoom/phone. I will be emailing the link out on Monday. 
- Spelling test and Times-table tests will continue to be on a Friday.

- Homework will be set on a Monday and is due in on a Friday.


Classroom - Ready for the new term!

This week in Class 4


What a fantastic final week class 4 had! This week has been non stop and the children have achieved so much! A big well done to them. They all took part in our vegetable curry project which involved them preparing and making their own vegetable curry. The children all loved this project and enjoyed eating the food! We also completed our explanation texts about how to make a mummy and finished decorating our Canopic jars.


As always I am super proud of the amazing attitude of Class 4. They continue to be dedicated, motivated and all round brilliant!


Hope you all have a lovely Easter.

What a fantastic week in class 4! We achieved so much this week and the children are doing amazingly since returning to school. This week we finished our fractions unit in maths and we continued to work on explanation texts in literacy. In computing, we are working on something very special. It involves creating and producing their own videos. We can’t wait for you to see the final product.

This Week in Class 4:


Welcome back! Our first week back was amazing! We started our new literacy unit all about explanation texts. We created our very own story map and came up with some actions to help us remember our model text. We then created our toolkit for success. This will help us create some amazing explanation texts.

This week we also continued our Ancient Egyptian unit. We created our Canopic Jars out of clay and the children did some amazing creations. Also this week, the children enjoyed a virtual lesson for Science Week. This was all about animal care and involved learning about how to examine and look after a cow. Finally, Plymouth Argyle also led basketball coaching for Class 4 this week. The children enjoyed this very much.

It is the last week before half term. Everyone has been fantastic since January and we all deserve a well earned break.  Before we break up, we will be finishing our newspaper report unit. The children will be planning, writing and editing their own newspaper. 

In maths, we are moving on to fractions and in Geography we will be finishing our London and Rome unit.  On Friday, we will be having a recall quiz to check that the children have remembered everything that we have learnt. This will give them a chance to check up on their knowledge and speak with their friends on Zoom.

PHSE - Achieving a goal


Class 4 have been thinking about the steps we need to take to achieve a goal. As part of this unit, the children had to design and create a potato character. Here is some of their amazing designs.

Virtual Classroom


Class 4 have been awesome online learners this term. Their attitude has been superb and their effort can not be questioned. Below is their virtual classroom where they go to get their work they need to complete for the day. Children simply click on a object and it takes them an area of their work. How exciting!
