    We have really enjoyed teaching the Year 4 children this year. Highlights have included our 3 days at Juniper Hall, visiting the Science Museum, Hampton Court, Putney Arts Theatre and dressing up as Romans and Greeks. The children have loved our class books and have just enjoyed the emotional ending of There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom. We wish all the children and their families a restful and enjoyable summer. Good luck in year 5!

  • Do you know all your times table facts?

    Published 23/06/22

    Year 4 have all completed the mandatory Multiplication Table Check (MTC) in the past 2 weeks. The children complete the test online and have to answer 25 random times table questions up to 12 x 12 with only 6 seconds to think of the answer and input it. I wonder how well parents would do on the test? The children have been practising at home and at school all year so most were well-prepared. We ensure that the children do the test in a calm environment with no distractions and we will not be publishing the results as this is only a snapshot of how the children performed on one day. We do not want them to feel any pressure about this assessment; the children use their recall of times table facts every day when solving maths problems or calculations.

  • Romans in Britain

    Published 01/04/22

    Year 4 had an amazing day on Wednesday when we spent the whole day pretending that we lived in a Roman town in Britain. In the photo you can see some of our soldiers marching and protecting the town from Celtic uprisings as we carried out our tasks. We had many jobs including making clay lamps and pots, crushing olives to make oil for the lamps, creating mosaics, designing frescos, crushing charcoal for writing, making wax tablets, making jewellery and creating medicines and beauty treatments at the bath house. Many thanks to the parents and older sibling helpers who made all these activities possible. Read on to find out what we did in the afternoon.
