  • A Greek Mystery solved!

    Published 11/11/16, by Shaun Downie

    The class produced a wonderful event for the fantastic finish this week. This incuded a recreation of the famous 'Theseus and the Minotaur' Greek Myth. The children certainly enjoyed seeing the monstrous beast slayed for the final time!

    We also shared some of our shape learning that we had been covering in class, including angles, triangles and quadrilaterals.

    The performance finished with a rousing rendition of our Beatboxing song that we had learnt during this term.

    I'd like to thank the many adults who attended the event and hope you gained an insight into the learning experiences of the class.

  • Buzzing to be back!

    Published 14/09/16, by Shaun Downie

    The children are back for a packed and hopefully enjoyable term at Roebuck! They have been involved in a 'Boot Camp' for the last two weeks, practicing skills already learnt and extending their horizons in preparation for the year ahead.

    They have been working extremely hard in all lessons so far this term whilst also trying hard to get back into regular school routines.

    In the image above, the children were busily planning notes and ideas for their first 'Big Write' task of Year 4. I am excited to see how much descriptive writing they have managed to include!

    Please continue to encourage your children to read regularly at home. Our extensive work on comprehension skills will be further developed with regular practice outside of school.

  • The Year 4 journey ends...

    Published 22/07/16, by Shaun Downie

    Well, what a fantastic year it has been! We have had many highlights to celebrate over the year, and we hope the children move on to create many more highlights in Year 5.

    I hope you have had a chance to read the reports and feedback on them; they show a very good insight into how well the children have done this year. I have been amazed at the work we have achieved and the standards we have set. Their next challenge is to beat them!

    Have a great summer Year 4! It has been a pleasure working with you.

  • Jubilant June!

    Published 30/06/16, by Shaun Downie

    The children have been working extremely hard in Year 4, and I am sure they are pleased their assessments are all done and dusted!

    The 'Fantastic Finish' was a massive success; it was well attended by adults and the children thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to show off their work. I want to thank everybody who attended the event as it helped to make a fantastic environment that the children thrived upon.

    The children are nearing the end of Year 4 and they are a mixture of nerves and excitement as they begin thinking about their next chapter of learning. I hope they continue to work hard and achieve their maximum potential.

    Remember: They can't do it YET but they will in the end!

    ''What is a Growth Mindset?'' I asked the children at 3pm on a sunny Tuesday afternoon. Simple question... range of possible answers. And what a range we got!
