Year 4

We have enjoyed our Spanish lessons at Sandymoor High School - gracias!

Welcome back

I hope you all had a fantastic Easter holiday.

Well, we are now in our final term in Year 4. It doesn't seem that long since I was welcoming you all to your new class.

This is a busy term but an enjoyable one. We will be learning Spanish at Sandymoor School, which will be an exciting experience. Check the Curriculum Newsletter to find out what else we are learning this term.

Speak to you soon.

Anti Bullying Week

We wrote our own poems about bullying.


Let Me 

You made me feel weak

You turned your back on me

You beat me up too much

Will you please let me be?

You hit me every day

Why do you do it to me?

I will tell an adult

And they will make you stop

I now feel stronger

So leave me be.



We read our anti-bullying poems out and we talked about trust.

We are busy at our residental - our theme is 'Imagine a Night in the Stars'

Our Class Value is Trust

We think trust is ....


"I think trust is when someone relies on you.  Abraham had to trust God that to kill his son was the right thing to do."


"I trust God because he keeps me safe and he always watches me."
