What We Have Learnt This Week

This week, we have been learning about the famous artist Jackson Pollock in our art lessons. We have researched some of his famous paintings and have analysed his techniques in order to mimic his work. In Maths we have started looking at how to complete sequences and counting on in 8’s, 9’s and 25’s from any given number. Regarding English, we’ve written a set of instructions on how to make a simple firework. We included lots of conjunctions and adverbials in our work as well as safety precautions when setting them off.

Welcome back Y4H

Welcome back everybody! Hope you have all had a fantastic summer and are feeling refreshed and ready for the start of a new year! I hope you are as excited as I am to get stuck in! We are going to be learning lots of new and exciting things together and I can’t wait to begin our journey!

We are beginning this term looking at Philip Pullman’s ‘The Firework Maker’s-Daughter’. This is one of my favourite books and such a great context to begin with, with lots of fun and thrilling surprises along the way! I hope you enjoy reading this book just as much as I did and we will be learning all about Lila’s adventure to Mount Merapi and her encounter with the Fire-Fiend.

Does Lila have what it takes to be a firework maker?

Recommended Read

The Year 3 Teachers have recommended …


There are stories about people who want to live forever.

This is not one of those stories.

This is a story about someone who wants to stop…

Alfie Monk is like any other nearly teenage boy – except he’s 1,000 years old and can remember the last Viking invasion of England.

Obviously no one believes him.

So when everything Alfie knows and loves is destroyed in a fire, and the modern world comes crashing in, Alfie embarks on a mission to find friendship, acceptance, and a different way to live…

… which means finding a way to make sure he will eventually die.
