Welcome to the Pilgrims home on our school website. Here you will find out about everything that is going on in Year 4. Mr Gormal and Mrs Stukins work with Year 4 every day and Miss Allen works with the class every Wednesday afternoon. Please use the form below to get in touch if you have any questions and we hope to see you in school soon for our next big event!
In writing this term we have created non-chronological reports all about different species of sharks and written science-fiction stories based in a mysterious underwater base. Next, we will be creating persuasive leaflets with the aim of encouraging people to take responsibility for looking after our precious oceans.
In deep waters, a place unknown to society , where a ghost and dark secrets lie... - Leland's sci-fi story opener.
We have been working hard to practice our 'VIPERS' reading skills; more information can be found here.
Please help your child to read at least three times per week in order to improve their reading skills and be in with a chance of winning our Key Stage reading raffle at Celebration Collective Worship each Friday. We have also been completing 'Reading Conferences' in class with the aim of encouraging pupils to discuss what they have read and make links between texts they have previously enjoyed.
This term has seen us looking at number and place value in many different ways. We have ordered and compared numbers and represented them in many different ways including Roman numerals. The children particularly enjoyed the "mind-bending" challenge of having to find specific numbers written in many different scripts. Have a go below if you want to check it out.

We have been learning about the 'Blue Abyss' this term. We have all been so inspired by the home learning that has taken place around this topic. Leland led the lesson all about the ocean layers, the different depths they could be found at and the animals that inhabit those zones. Marcin, Emmie and Eleonora have all shared some fantastic projects that can be found below.
Our focus this term has been 'Why do we celebrate?' We have been learning about different celebrations from different cultures and faiths throughout the world. We have also learnt more about our class name 'Pilgrims' and what that means. We created footprints using paint to display around the classroom as a constant reminder of the journey we will be on together this year.
How you can help at home
Please encourage your child to read at home as often as possible. Practising times tables will help your child with some of the challenges and problems they will face in maths. Times Tables Rockstars is a brilliant way of doing this. Jay-Jay is currently leading the class with a rock speed of 1.54 seconds per question. He has managed to half his time since we started in September but will need to keep it up if he wants to catch Mr Gormal on 0.93s/q!
Current leader, Jay-Jay AKA Jah Big.
