Every child has brilliance inside them. Our job is to dig it out and give it to the world!
Plea for boxes and cardboard!
If you have any unwanted shoe boxes, other boxes, cardboard, toilet rolls and/or kitchen rolls, please can you bring them to school next week?
We need anything you have for an art project please :-)
Don't forget to go onto Spag.com and complete the direct speech test before next Friday :-)
Next week is science week so lots of exciting investigations for us :-)
A huge well done for winning the BB cup! I was so surprised and proud!
Next step is 100% attendance. Everyone in for one whole week - let's see if next week is the one!
See you all on Monday :-)

Homework for this week is separated into challenges. In class the children choose their own level to work at, so are used to having chilli challenges.
They are rated from Chilli 1 to chilli 4 , with number 4 being the most challenging.
If you need a paper copy just let me know which challenge you have chosen :-)

Kung hey fat choi! We have had a lovely afternoon celebrating Chinese New Year :-)
I am so impressed with your resilience this week Class 4! We have been working hard on our sentence structures and general writing skills this week. We have learnt that checking and editing is key to our success! I can't wait to read your stories next week!
Next week we will continue with our topic work and learn a bit more about Mount Vesuvius and look at why the Roman Army was such a powerful force. Class 4 are really embracing this topic which is fantastic - love the enthusiasm!
Have a great weekend all :-)

A great week Class 4 - we're ready to learn! What an enthusiastic bunch you have been this week - from fighting gladiator battles to erupting volcanoes, it's all happening in our class at the moment!
A huge well done for earning the BB cup :-) We now need to work on our attendance. Let's make next week our 100% week!

There are lots of exciting things happening this term :-) We've got some French penpals to write to, a school trip or two, plus some amazing learning to be had!
We've decided we are all going to work really hard this term and blow Mrs Sansoms' socks off!
See you all on Monday :-)

See you all in the morning!

What a lovely end to a productive term! The Carols at the church on Wednesday were absolutely brilliant! Always feels like Christmas!
It's been a very busy term, but I've thoroughly enjoyed watching you all grow and mature :-)
Thank you all for my wonderful gifts and cards - It was so very thoughtful of you!
Mrs Edmonds and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and look forward to seeing you refreshed and ready to learn in January.

This week is all about Christmas! Don't forget the panto on Wednesday and Christmas Dinner on Friday. You can bring snacks and drinks to take with you Wednesday :-)

19th November 2016
Well done Class 4- another BB cup win! You have proved time and again that you are a credit to Wyburns - keep it up!
This week we have been working on our independence in the classroom - especially with spellings. I'm expecting you all to step up next week and to use SPLAT IT!
Some of our children proved how handy they are whilst investigating electricity. Some very practical children :-)
Next week I'll get to see your creative side when you all write your marvellous myths. I can't wait to read them!
We'll also be looking at fractions next week so lots of learning going on!
Don't forget Homework is due in every Friday - if there is an issue getting it in on time please let me know by Wednesday at the latest so we can sort something out. There is also Homework club every Monday for those children who would like to go.
See you all on Monday :-)
Saturday 12th November
What a week Class 4. Time is moving so quickly! Some amazing reports about the Trojan War this week but my favourite writing came from your Remembrance Haiku's. All I can say is WOW! You managed to blow me away with your poetry. You all knew how important it was to deliver from the heart, and you certainly did!
Next week we will look at our final myth before finally writing our own. I hope you've enjoyed learning about all the mythical beings (I certainly have!)
Maths this week was challenging and I know I made some of your brains hurt but, as always, you showed amazing resilience and kept trying! We'll be consolidating your knowledge next week.
Have a great weekend and see you all on Monday.
Miss Fagence :-)
I hope you all had a relaxing half term and are now ready for my favourite time of year! We have a busy half term in the run up to Christmas so we need to ensure we are fully rested for the challenge!
We kicked off our learning with the Trojan war today - lots of fantastic freeze frames depicting different parts.
This term we will continue to improve our times tables and spellings as well as learning how to up level our writing.
I'm so looking forward to getting stuck into learning with you all. Remember our class targets - Be independent learners!
See you all in the morning :-)
14th October 2016
What a week Class 4. We only went and won the BB cup again! Well done for your fantastically brilliant behaviour!
Today we visited the CLC in Wickford, and you all fully embraced the experience and had an amazing time. Thank you to all the parents that helped out today - we really couldn't have done it without you.
Next week is our final week before we can have a rest and recharge the batteries ready for a busy half term leading up to Christmas. There is homework this week (though lots of you left your folders at school with the homework inside!) So please ensure that is back by next Friday. I'll be giving out the holiday homework on Thursday next week as I'm not in on the Friday.
Keep practising the spellings and times tables as they will continue as normal next week.
Super proud of you all today and look forward to more brilliance on Monday.
Please remember to bring a disposable packed lunch on Friday 14th October, unless you have ordered a white band from school.
We look forward to seeing your brilliance on International Day!
Monday 10th October
Class 4 won the BB cup!! Whoop whoop - well done :-)
Another busy week last week and only 2 weeks till half term! This term is whizzing past.
This week we are celebrating international week in Kenya. We'll explore the country and incorporate some African related maths, art and dance! The finale of our week will take place in the CLC in Wickford so please make sure you have all returned your permission slips.
Talk and share is tomorrow - Tuesday 11/10/16 in class 4
Performance tickets are on sale now, ready for our amazingly brilliant show next week.
Keep calm class 4 the holidays are almost here :-)
Our reading around the world challenge starts this week (26/09/16). The children will bring home their passport tomorrow. Every time they read to a country they will receive their certificate and reward tick! GET READING CLASS 4!
Sunday 25th September
So week 3 and we've managed to fight off stiff competition to keep the BB cup. Well done Class 4 - absolutely BRILLIANT!
We've had a busy week auditioning and taking on the parts in our production. Well done to all those who have stepped up and learnt their lines already! There hasn't been other homework this weekend as the children have their lines to practise. Homework will go out tomorrow but isn't due in for 2 weeks because of the extra workload the children have. Spellings and times tables will still be a focus though so keep practising those.
Spellings in Year 4
The children have two different spelling lists to learn. A smaller list that is going to be tested on a Monday (from w/c 3/10/16) and the list from their phase spellings - tested every Wednesday.
As always the phase spellings are as a result of a spelling diagnostic carried out each term. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this please do not hesitate to contact me.
This term is flying by....week 4 already!
An amazing second week back! The children are working really hard in Maths to master place value and rounding numbers to 10,100 and 1000 whilst still behaving beautifully.
The Brilliance cup is now in our classroom - well deserved joint winners this week! Well done Class 4.
We celebrated Roald Dahl day in style and have been looking at the BFG. Some amazing sketches and watercolours are now on display along with our hopes and dreams for year 4.
Keep up your amazing thirst for learning Year 4. I'm so proud of you!
Have a great weekend and see you all Monday :-)
Friday 9th September
What a fantastic week back. The children have thrown themselves into year 4 with gusto! A fabulous attitude to learning so well done year 4 :-)
Amy G and Gracie earned their pen licenses this week by joining their handwriting beautifully!
Sophie received the certificate for her BRILLIANCE this week.
The research homework this week is due in by next Friday. The children were given additional spellings to learn this week and they will be tested next Tuesday.
Have a fantastic weekend and I look forward to seeing you all on Monday!
