Goodbye for now

You did it!

Well done everyone for managing so well over the last few months. There have been so many changes that you have had to get used to (including a brand new virtual teacher!) and you have continued to amaze me with your resilience and positivity.

I have loved getting know every single one of you, whether I have managed to meet you face to face or not, and I hope you manage to have a fantastic summer whatever you have planned.

I can’t wait to see you back with us in September and I have no doubt you will have an amazing year with Miss Wharton in Year 5.

Below are some pictures of the new Year 4 classroom as it looks for now. Hopefully this will reassure some of you who are reading this and will be starting with me in Year 4 next year.

Tables have had to be put in rows facing the front for now
A brand new book corner for when you have time to sit and read quietly
Trays with all your names on and resources to help you with your learning

As you can see a lot of the displays are empty and waiting to be filled up with all of your wonderful work when you get back to school!

Take care and see you soon!

Mr Wolff

Music Madness!

Happy Thursday Year 4!

I hope you are having a lovely week at home. It is the last day for children who have been coming into school today before the Summer holidays. Do you have anything exciting planned?

Take a look at Rob Kitchen’s music lessons this week.

The first one is all about ‘drawing sound’ so get your pencil and paper ready…

We also have a hilarious ode to Joe Wicks…

Have a super super day!

Story time

This week you lucky lot have two stories to listen to for our story time!

And this one is from someone extra special 😉

I hope you enjoy them!

I would also like to share Emma’s fantastic ‘Ball-about-me’

Well done Emma!

Have a great Wednesday everyone.

Tuesday singing!

This week’s song from Mr Chapman is a classic and is a great song to finish with for the summer.

We also have a fun new song from Beccy too this week….

I hope you are having a great Carnival Week. I will be posting any pictures I receive tomorrow morning so please send those in if you have anything you want to share.

Have a great day!

Monday

Good morning Year 4 🙂

I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Here is today’s assembly from Miss Howells all about facing your fears!

We also have brand new community challenge for you…

This week it’s Miss Frobisher’s turn! Linked to our Carnival Week, and to celebrate ‘Cragside: Together and Apart’, we are going to revive The Chiming Tree in Paddy Freeman’s by the pond. The Friends of Paddy Freeman’s has agreed that we can decorate the tree.

Check out the document below as to how you get involved. If we work together, the tree can become magical again. 

Also, some of your fantastic pieces of art work are now on display at the People’s Theatre so see if you can find some time this week to walk past and have a look!

Have a great day!

Carnival week!

Welcome to Carnival week!

Take a look at the activities and timetable below for your final week of home learning.

This week’s Literacy should hopefully be a lot of fun as it is all about joke writing!

Who’s ready for your final White Rose maths sheets of this term?

Well done again for all your hard work over the last few months, It’s a real shame that I didn’t get chance to teach you all in person before the Summer but I definitely still want a big hello when you come back in September!!

I will be back next week with some more blog posts and activities

Have a great weekend,

Mr Wolff
