Water Lilies

Picture 1

Welcome to Water Lilies class in Year 4. We have Miss Barrett as our teacher, who is also Forest School Leader, so on her Forest School day Mrs Biddles teaches us. We also have support from Mrs Styring and Mrs Bird, our super teaching assistants, during the week.


Throughout Spring 2, our learning will be based around the theme of "The Arts".

Spring 2 Topic Web

Each week one of the following activities will be set online: MyMaths, or TT Rock Stars. Each activity will be set for the children to complete by the following week.


Remember to read to an adult 3 times each week and have your planner signed to be awarded 5 team points


From Spring Term 2, spelling tests will be changing. Each week everyone will be given a list of 10 spellings, following a set rule, and these will be tested the following week (usually on the Friday). As a challenge, you could also learn 3 extra words that follow the same rule and spell them correctly for 1 merit! You can practice your spellings using your Spelling Shed login, where the spelling list will added for you to play the game to earn lots of points (points makes prizes).

Happy Half Term! Have a lovely week off everyone and we look forward to seeing you again on Monday 25th. The Year 4's did fantastically well with auditioning for parts in our Lower Junior concert on Tuesday. Scripts have now been handed out, so please take a look over half-term if possible. 


8th February 2019

We have begun learning our concert songs alongside being given a part of the script to learn for auditions on Tuesday 12th February. Please practise your lines in preparation.

Despite seeing a lot of Water Lilies Class with coughs and colds this week, we have persevered with some exciting lessons! On Tuesday, we conducted an evaporation invetigation in Science. Then on Friday, we created our marbling in Art ready to make our bookmarks next week.

Another busy week for Water Lilies this week. We have been learning about the water cycle in Science and have been continuing our Fractions work in Maths. In English, we have spent some time editing our story writing and have then had to opportunity to write these up with pen! Don't forgot that next Friday is Spanish Day. I am looking forward to seeing your all of your outstanding outfits! 


Friday 11th January 2019

Welcome back to school. We have started our new topic of 'Land and Sea' this week by looking in different montain ranges. We also created a Padlet on the iPads to talk about different marbling techniques in Art, which we all really enjoyed! Please don't forget to be completing your water diaries at home for our Science project (due in by Tuesday 29th Jan), ideally filling them in for at least a week if possible.
