Homework - 17th November 2017


Please watch the following version of Little Red Riding Hood. Children to answer the following questions:


What happened in the film clip? Think about the main points of the story. 


Were you able to understand the story even though characters didn't speak?


A book for parents!


Wonder - by RJ Palacio - takes you on an incredible journal in the life of a little boy named August. I fully recommend this read!



We have learnt lots of new and exciting vocabulary linked to angles this week:




Right Angle


The children have become experts at identifying the names of angles this week without even using a protractor to measure them. They have remembered some very important information to help them with this. Try testing your child out at home! 

This week we have started to look at the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb whilst also exploring our own secret passage using an online video. The children found out that Howard Carter discovered the tomb with the help of Lord Canarvon before Canarvon's death due to an insect bite. At the time there were many myths surrounding his untimely death including the fact that a curse may have been placed upon Carter after he moved all of Tutankhamun's treasures. 

Welcome to year four!


We have very high expectations of children in year four and have already immersed ourselves into the year four curriculum. The children have received their first homework project.... a booklet on Tutankhamun... which is due in on the 9th September!

The children will receive their homework diaries and books within the first week and their first piece of homework on Friday 15th September. The children need to hand in their homework every Wednesday!

Children will be receiving their spellings based on our spelling scheme 'No Nonsense Spellings' where the children learn spelling patterns and techniques. 

Please ensure your child is bringing in a full water bottle every morning so they can access water during lessons.



Miss Molloy suggests:  



      So hang me.
      I killed the bird.
      For pity's sake,
      I'm a cat.'


Poor Ellie is horrified when Tuffy drags a dead bird into the house. Then a mouse. But Tuffy can't understand what all the fuss is about.

Who on earth will be the next victim to arrive through the cat-flap? Can soft-hearted Ellie manage to get her beloved pet to change his wild, wild ways before he ends up in even deeper trouble?

The hilarious antics of Tuffy and his family as told by the killer cat himself.


I love this book for a variety of reasons - one being that I love cats and have two gorgeous cats of my own (Luna and Bella) and secondly because the killer cat has such a good sense of humour and made me laugh throughout!
