Hello Year 4,
Here is a panorama of the classroom. It is set up ready for you to come in to on Thursday.
We are very excited to see you and we cannot wait to welcome you back. We are going to have a fantastic year.
I don't want you to have any worries about coming back to school but if you do, you can write these down and we can go through them on Thursday morning.
See you soon,
Mrs Whitehead, Mrs Brown and Mrs Lloyd
Any work for children at home that is put on to class pages will be to print off at home only.
Due to health and safety issues we will not be providing paper copies for children at home.
You can put your answers on a sheet and take a photo to send in or put them onto a word document and email in.
Message from Mr. Francis
Hope you are all ok. As you know we were suppose to be going to the Metrodome as part of a music festival. It will not be the experience we had hoped for but if you follow this You Tube guide you can join in from your homes. Hopefully see you all soon.
Due to updated government guidance we can no longer provide additional reading books for home. Please read the books you have, look at magazines, share stories from your bookshelf and use our online links to support your child’s reading.
Any books returned to school will be left in a box until we can clean them for the safety of staff and pupils. Many thanks for your continued support in these difficult times.
Welcome to class Antarctica, I am Mrs. Wakefield. In this class, we are supported by Mrs. Lloyd and Mrs. Brown. We have a student teacher in our class too called Mr. Watling, he will be working with us until June.
Our PE day is Wednesday.
We have lots of exciting activities happening in year 4, so keep an eye out and we will update the page regularly.
Home learning - 20th April
Good morning Year 4. Hope you are all well and having fun with your families. We are all missing you at school and hope to see you all very soon. I have made a padlet for us, on it, you can add comments or pictures so why not add what you have been up to. Just click on the link.
Reading - I have found a reading calender, have a look at all the different activities and see how many you can do before the end of April. I will add a new one for May.
Maths - Keep working on your Times Table Rockstars - get some rock music on and see how many you can get right before the song runs out. Mr. Marsh has added some White Rose maths things too to the Home Learning page so make sure you have a look at these.
Literacy - Think about when we have learnt about verbs and adverbs. Have a look at the Animal Town sheets can you complete the Sentences Challenge sheet? Have a go at the other sheets too.
Science - I thought it would be fun to look at sound (sorry mums and dads!!). Have a look at how sounds are made and then see if you can make some sounds using a homemade musical instrument - I have included some photographs to give you some ideas.
How many of these can you work out? Send me your answers through the school email address
Good morning year 4,
Just wanted to say hello to you all and hope you are all ok and having lots of fun at home with your families. If you have been doing anything really exciting then send a picture to the school email address (office@firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will add them to our class page for everyone else to see.
We have also been thinking it would be really nice if you wanted to, you could write a diary of your day or week. Let us know what you have done etc and again I will share these on the website.
I am really looking forward to hearing and seeing all about what you are up to.

These websites are really good for maths and literacy

After another good night's sleep and a full English breakfast, stream and avalanche are caving and then canoeing before the challenge course while iceberg are on the trapeze before diving into the piranha pool and the challenge course. We are having lunch and then heading down to the coach. See you all soon
This morning we have had taken part in a karate taster session - it was lots of fun!
How do our actions affect others?
We are learning a lot from the Victorians this half term and how their acts affected Britain and how it is still affecting our lives today. We have looked at Queen Victorian and what she was like and what she did. We have looked at the workhouses, colonisation, inventions and lots, lots more.
This week we have been looking at Gingerbread. During the Victorian period, gingerbread was regularly eaten and enjoyed. We tried out the recipe and enjoyed eating the gingerbread we made as much as the Victorians!
Today is our second brass lesson. Today the children have been playing along to Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes. They have been learning about how to look after their instruments and how to keep the valves clean and smooth.
Using a cream cracker, banana, orange juice and water we created a digestive system. We had lots of fun digesting the food and removing the waste from our stomach.
Hello and welcome back Year 4. I am ready for a fantastic and fun year where we are going to learn lots and lots! Don't forget if you need anything or have any questions to come and find me and I will try to help.
Don't forget parents, there is a 'Meet the Teacher' meeting on Thursday 12th September. I am looking forward to meeting as many of you as possible. I understand that some people will not be able to attend the meeting so I will add the PowerPoint on here. Any questions, please come and see me.
Today we have had our first brass lesson - we have given the children their rental agreement for you to sign. Once this is returned to school, they will then be able to bring their instrument home to practise!!
Welcome to the Clever Crocodile Class 2018!
I am really looking forward to Year 4 and I hope you are too.
Our first topic is shared through the whole school... hidden TREASURE! We are focussing on the Ancient Egyptians as our topic and will be becoming archaeologists exploring the treasures of the past.
Welcome to Year 4!
Snow Day Homework
I hope you have enjoyed some time playing in the snow.
As we missed World Book Day on Thursday I would like you to ask someone to take a photo of you reading your favourite book in an interesting place. You can decide where this is. Please bring a photo into school to show the rest of the class.
I would also like you to do some writing to share with the class.
Imagine you are going to be trapped inside school because of the snow for 2 whole weeks. Which 10 items would you bring with you to help you survive and why would you bring each item?
I look forward to hearing about your fun in the snow on Monday.
On behalf of Class 4, I would just like to say thank you to all of the adults who attended the Cober Hill assembly on Tuesday. I am sure you will agree that the children had fun whilst they were away and that they learnt a lot at the same time.
Just a reminder that the Class 4 Cober Hill assembly will take place on Tuesday 27th February at 1.45pm.
Please return the reply slips to let us know whether you will be attending or not and how many seats you need.
Miss Humphreys and Class 4
Cober Hill 2018
Yesterday the whole school enjoyed the first Smile day! What an exciting and fun day it was. All of the children I spoke to really enjoyed the day and the variety of activities. It was nice to see Year 4 mixing with all year groups throughout the day. Check out the Headteacher's page to see some of the photos from the day.
Writer of the week
The Writer of the week award goes to Skye this week. She produced a brilliant non-chronological report. I was very impressed. Well done Skye.
Pupil of the Week
This week's pupil of the week is Gracie. Gracie always does the right thing and is a kind and friendly member of the class. Well done Gracie.
This week Dylan was chosen as outstanding writer due to his much improved handwriting and letter formation. Dylan has worked really hard ensuring that his descenders fall below the line and that his letters are the same size. Well done Dylan.
This week Thomas was picked as pupil of the week due to his outstanding work ethic. He always puts in 100% effort and wants to do his best. Well done Thomas.
