Posted in Uncategorized on September 12, 2013 by Mr Davy

The Year 4 team challenge you all to become confident and accurate with your Times Tables. Having an understanding of these will be invaluable as you progress through the latter half of Key Stage 2 and onto Secondary School.

Here are some good games to get you practicing. Fishy Times Tables is a good place to start. Once you are more confident, see if you can win the Grand Prix race!

Dig For Victory

During World War II, the Government encouraged the General Public to ‘Dig for Victory’.

What did this mean? Why were they encouraging the public to do this through the Government issue Propaganda Posters?

A New Academic Year – Welcome to Year 4!

Posted in Uncategorized on September 6, 2013 by Mr Davy

It has been such a pleasure to see how positive and engaged the class have been since we started in Year 4. We are all absolutely delighted to be teaching them and have already experienced some fantastic learning. The Summer homework projects are breathtaking and we welcome families to come and visit our classroom at the end of the day to explore the artefacts and share in the children’s learning journey.

As you know, the class are investigating the incredible history of the 20th Century including a focused study of World War II. Here are some links should you want to investigate these themes:
