Tip trip tomorrow – last minute reminders!

We are really looking forward to our trip tomorrow, here are a few reminders:

1) A sensible and safe pair of walking shoes/trainers with a good grip on the sole (no flip flops or open toed shoes please due to health and safety!)

2) Clothing – as the weather is forecast to be similar to today, children can wear shorts/t-shirt and bring a long-sleeved top and trousers in their bags as a precaution.

Must have a sun hat and sun cream applied before school (bring in bag to reapply)

Thick socks that will protect the feet


A waterproof top (in their bag)

3) A packed lunch and plenty of water (bring an extra bottle if needed). Be warned, your child will have to carry this for the whole day-a lightweight rucksack is ideal!

4) No money is needed.

If your child is allergic to latex, please let your class teacher know as the children will be wearing them to pick up rubbish.

Any questions, please contact your child’s teacher.

Many thanks

Important update!

Unfortunately, Year 4 are unable to get buses for the tip trip this Friday so we are currently looking at other possible dates.  However, we have decided to hold our ‘Trashion Show’ on Friday instead.  Please could children bring in any items that could be reused for their team’s design.  Here are some examples to inspire you…

Tip trip!

As part of our topic on the environment, Year 4 are hoping to visit the Fontaine Recycling Depot and Waste Segregation Site, Longue Hougue Reclamation Site, Mont Cuet Landfill Site and Chouet on Friday 13th April. We aim to raise the children’s awareness of what happens to our waste and get them to consider issues to do with landfill sites. We hope to depart school at 9:15am and return to school by 3pm.  We are just waiting for confirmation of buses for the trip – further details to follow on Wednesday (please check the blog).  It is possible we will have to change the date if the buses are unavailable.

We will need at least 5 helpers for our trip – please can you let your child’s class teacher know asap if you can assist.

Many thanks

Many thanks for all your support again this term, have a great Easter Holiday, relax and eat chocolate-you can always burn it off doing a daily mile?

Year 4 Team

I would just like to say a personal thank you for all the support and best wishes you have sent me this year. I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of this year group and I am really going to miss you. Happy Easter to you all.

Easter Performance

Dear parents/carers,

thank you for coming to watch our amazing Easter Performance today. I hope you saw how proud we were of the children and all their hard work-it was truly their show.

Please could we ask that any photos or films you took this afternoon are not posted on any social media or public sites as we have some children that do not have permission to be photographed. Please only use for private use.

Many thanks and have a good weekend

Tomorrow’s Easter Performance

Year 4 are very much looking forward to welcoming you to our Easter Service tomorrow, Friday 23rd March. The service will begin at 1:45pm in the school hall.

There will be parking on the playground.

The children have worked really hard and we are extremely proud of their efforts. We would just like to advise you that the story and performance is perhaps not appropriate for very young children.

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

Weekly Update 12/3/18

Year 4 Weekly Update for week beginning 12.3.18

The children have all shared a piece of work that they are proud of on their Google Drive today. Please encourage them to log on and show you their work and enjoy!

The children’s homework this weekend is to learn their song and script words.  This is vital!

Our Easter Service Rehearsals are underway and the children’s singing is already sounding great. However, the church is having some electrical work being done and this won’t be completed in time for us. Therefore, we will be rehearsing and performing our service at school in the main hall. Please see the following schedule:-


Literacy:  Writing our own version of ‘The Black Box text’.

Numeracy:  Shape and angles.

Have a lovely weekend and thank you for your continued support, we’re looking forward to seeing you next week at your parents’ appointment (please get in touch if you haven’t made one yet!)
