- Look after school equipment
- Don’t give up – Try your best
- Be a good friend – Help others
- Manage your distractions
- Walk sensibly around the classroom and the school
- Share with others
- show good listening skills
- show respect to everyone
- Take responsibility for our actions
This year we are working on MINDSET which helps change our thinking when we get confused or frustrated.
Each morning and afternoon the children have a visual timetable on the board.
We are developing our gymnastic skills in P.E.
Year 4 like to show the rest of the class what they have been doing and then invite one comment to say what was good and what could be improved.
Guided Reading happens every day after morning break. We have a class set of James and the Giant Peach which we are enjoying immensely. Everyone who feels confident enough, has a go at reading out loud in class.
Every day after break we have guided reading.
Here we are today (Friday 15th September) reading our class book; James and The Giant Peach.
All the children have the opportunity to read aloud to the class.

This week we have started our class book James and the Giant Peach: McKenzie and Ava took part in ‘hot seating’ and they answered questions from the class as if they were James.
Year 4 held a ballot to see who would be our new school councillors and who would be our worship committee representatives.
The vote was extremely close and the results are as follows:
School Councillors: Jake and Mia
Worship Committee: Jessica and Kieran
