Fun Silhouettes!

Today, we began creating our character cutouts of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with a silhouette of one child from each table. The children found it challenging yet fun to draw the outline of their peers! Stay tuned to the blog for the finishing the masterpiece!



As you know, year 4 are learning about sound this term. We have learnt that we hear all sounds through vibrations and today we had a go at making our own string phones. We made them using 2 polystyrene cups and some string. We stood apart so the string was staight and then one person put their ear to the cup whilst the other spoke into it. 
Do you think it worked? 

Have you ever done anything like this before?!

Parents’ Fun Day Afternoon in Moonstone Class

On the afternoon of Friday 14th December 2018, the parent’s and grandmothers of Moonstone class paid a visit to the school to have a look at their children’s work, in their books and around the classroom.  While there they got involved with their child’s Art activity, the atmosphere was full of happiness, laughter and fun.  As you can see, the adults were so engrossed and relaxed and the children were so happy to have them there participating in what they were doing.

I would like to thank all the parents and grandmothers for taking the time out, especially during this busy season, to spend some time with their child, grandchild and the other children in the class. We truly appreciate all your help, and support .


Merry Christmas! 

What a wonderful last day of term we have had! 

This morning we watched a fantastic pantomime and this afternoon we tried Maya hot chocolate! 

Have a fantastic Christmas everyone and a well deserved break 🎅🏽. Looking forward to seeing you all in the new year! 

Homework for the holidays

The holidays are nearly here!!! I hope that you all enjoyed this term and learned lots of great stuff!

As a treat, we aren’t asking you to do AS MUCH homework as usual, but we also don’t want your brains to turn off, so….


Hopefully, you will all receive some form of reading material, from game instructions, to recipes for Christmas cookies, to letters from your friends. It doesn’t matter what you read, as long as you read! Record your reading in your diaries and share your reading adventure with others!

Mental Maths
