St Joseph's Day

The children had a great time learning more about St. Joseph and letting their creative streaks lose!

Remote Learning - Tudor Day

Good morning! Well, this isn't the day that we anticipated and the children must be so disappointed. I've had a look and found some websites that they might enjoy. There are some printables, but if you are unable to do this, it may give you some ideas for an activity. Take care.


The children created this beautiful Advent calendar. On the back of each bauble is an act of kindness that they were going to show during this preparation time. They talked about such things as sharing, being a kind friend and showing respect and consideration to their family members. You might like to have a go at creating your own at home. (I added the numbers after I had taken the photo!)

We love to read!

Please do take  look at what the favourite books are in our class and why don't you try reading some of my favourite 5's as well! 
My Fab 5!

It was tricky choosing just 5!

Harvest Rap!

We worked together to produce a rap about Harvest as a time of giving to others less fortunate. The children had amazing ideas and then wrote the finished work up in best. This is a small selection.


The children are using concrete resources and pictorial representations to understand our first and vital topic - place value. As well as continuing to count in multiples and practising our times tables. We have begun to look at negative numbers with Year 4.

English - spelling

The children have been practising their common exception words and testing each other!


Our topic this half term is 'The Bible'. The children have been learning about its structure and studying stories from the Old Testament. We acted out the story of Abraham and Sarah, as well as miming some of our favourite stories. The children also drew extracts from the story of Moses.


The children have been studying the local area, researching the landmarks of Pudsey and creating a class map of our town. They have been learning how to read maps and identify the key features in them. We are also looking at the counties of England; the major cities of the UK and the human and physical features of Yorkshire using atlases and digital technology.


The children are learning conversational French!

Virtues Week

Our class virtue is charity. The children read Friend or Foe by Michael Morpurgo and focused on how two young evacuees used the virtue of charity to help two stranded Germans during the Second World War. They created a news report which they then presented to the rest of the school. They wrote prayers with the theme of charity. Finally they used the work from the artist Hannah Dunnett as inspiration to create a canvas on charity.

Settling In!

At the start of term the children re- acquaint themselves with the class rules; as well as learning about their class saint. We also spent more time this year talking about the importance of hand hygiene.
