"Be The Best That We Can Be"
Welcome to Class 4
Hello everyone! Welcome back and welcome to year 4!
Our Class 4 motto "We learn, laugh and have lots of fun. We never stop until the work is done!"
We have an exciting first half term planned and hope that you are raring to go! We will be starting our new topics straight away and can't wait to get stuck in. The first topic that we will be looking at, is the Romans.
To kick start the topic the class took part in a Roman day. Pupils wore traditional Roman dress, made bread, planted peas and made Roman helmets.
We have organised an exciting educational visit to Wirlow Hall Farm in November where we will be learning all about how the Romans lived.
Class 4 had a fantastic end to half term making Halloween cupcakes and writing a recipe. We used lots of different skills to make the cupcakes such as our measuring and communication skills.
We held a competition to design the spookiest pumpkin. Congratulations to the competition winner!
This half term Class 4's Science topic has been States of Matter. The class have had a fabulous time, learning and modelling the properties of solids, liquids and gases as well as making their very own living water cycle.
Congratulations to our Science competition winner!
Last week, Class 4 visited Whirlow Hall Farm. The Class had a fantastic day discovering how the Romans lived. The class took part in learning everyday Roman activities, farming, discovering the foods that Romans ate and carrying out an archaeological dig.
Class 4 have been celebrating Children in Need. We have taken part in Pudsey maths and acted out our very own news broadcast to make people aware of the purpose of Children in Need. The children came up with some powerful ideas and thoughts about how to care for others. We are incredibly proud of them all!
Congratulations to last half terms Star Reader!! Each week your child will be entered into a prize draw when they have read four or more times at home. At the end of each half term, names will be drawn out of a hat and pupils will be able to select a book of their choice. The more times that your child reads, the more chance they have of winning! Reading books with your child at home helps to stimulate their imagination, expand their understanding of the world around them and improves their vocabulary skills. We actively encourage reading at home! Please remember to fill in your child's reading diary.
This half term, Class 4 have been learning how to write a set of instructions. We used our English language skills to make a set of instructions on how to make a pepperoni and ham pizza, yummy!
We have had such an amazing response to the Roman sheild homework. We are overwhelmed by the quality produced and would like to thank parents, carers and grandparents for supporting the pupils in the making of these awesome sheilds!!

Hello everyone and welcome back! The children have settled in really well and are enjoying our new topic, the circus. Our class book is the Skycircus.

We have had a busy few weeks here in class 4. We are taking part in an enterprise competion hosted by Gullivers kingdom. We have designed our very own character, and designed and created a variety of merchandise. To raise money to buy more merchandise we made 150 chocolate apples to sell to the rest of the school. The morning was a great success, we raised a significant sum of money to help fund the next stage of our enterprise project. Many thanks to all pupils that bought an apple or bun.
Gullyfest 2019 - What an amazing time we had at the Get Up to Speed event at Magna on Wednesday 27th March. As part of the competition, Class 4 created their very own character P.T. Jeff the lion along with a drama performance about P.T. Jeff's life and a dance show. The children were an absolute credit to the school and put on a fantastic show, the judges were absolutely blown away with our perfermonce. We are super proud of all the children and the enthusiasm and commitment that they showed to their work and the competition as a whole.
We had an absolutely fantastic time on our residential trip to Stratford-Upon-Avon. Class 4 took part in a workshop all about Shakespeare. We also visitied the M.A.D museum, where we looked at different pieces of mechanical art and design.
We would like to say a massive thank you to all the parents/carers and children for their generosity. We have had a truly magical first year here at Todwick and Class 4 has been absolutely fabulous! We couldn’t have done it without the support of parents and carers!! We wish Class 4 all the best for year 5! Have a fantastic summer, we will miss you!!! xxxxxxx
