4B - Mrs Bryzak

Welcome to 4B’s class page; a page that is going to fill up with all the amazing work, activities and experiences we are going to have this year in Year 4. We have so much planned so keep coming back to see our latest learning.


Thank you for all your support on Friday 16th November for Children in Need.

It was lovely to see so many children accessorised in spots We enjoyed making Pudsey sparkle!




This half term, we have moved on to finding out all about the Vikings.

We have already found out that many things that we thought were true about Vikings are actually myths. Did you realise they didn't actually wear horned helmets? And they definitely weren't smelly - they washed at least once a week!



In English we have been reading 'Tell me a Dragon.' It is a beautifully illustrated book with lots of wonderful vocabulary to describe all the different dragons. We have used the book to create our own dragons to describe. 


Next in English, we are writing an information text all about Vikings. We are ready to research using books and the internet and can't wait to start writing up our notes. We'll put up some of our work on here in a few weeks time, so keep coming back!



We are also reading 'How to Train a Dragon' as our class reader. We are loving finding out about Hiccup's adventures and we are trying to work out how the book is like... or not really like... the film. 


Please ensure that your child has their PE on the following days:


  • Monday – Indoor PE
  • Thursday – Outdoor PE


4B will be going swimming in the Summer Term 2019.



In 4B we complete 4 pieces of home learning a week. This could be reading, practising our handwriting, going to a club, saying our times tables or practising mental maths, completing our SPaG homework, cooking, visiting a museum or event.


For each piece of home learning, your child will receive a merit which then contributes to a half termly home learning award. Please make sure you record their home learning in their home learning diary provided and ensure it is signed, dated and in school each day.


15 merits = Bronze award

20 merits = Silver award

25 merits = Gold award

Mental Maths Monday

There will be a Mental Maths test every Monday. Please ensure you help your child to practise their mental methods for times tables, addition and subtraction.

Times Table Thursday

Every Thursday we are completing our times tables using a grid. The children have 10 minutes to complete different times tables. We have started with the 1,2,3,5 and 10 so please start practising. 

SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) Friday

There will be a SPaG test every Friday. Please make sure SPaG books are in school on a Friday and ensure your child completes their SPaG homework.
