Welcome back!

We are so excited to get back and get started, with so much learning ahead.

In English, we have begun to gather information to enable us to write our own information texts.


Spellings this week are focussing on the suffix -ly.

Year 4 Reading

Thank you for all of your half term holiday reading, keep it up Year 4!


Greek Play.

We are really looking forward to rehearsing our Year 4 Greek Play, which will be performed this term. You will see we have included the lyrics to the songs, which can be practised at home. Please learn them for our wonderful performance!

Super work learning all of your lines Year 4, we are so impressed. Information is below and can costumes be ready and in school in time for our dress rehearsal on Friday 16th December.


The date for our Greek Play is Thursday 22nd November 2018 at  2:30pm. You are all welcome to bring friends and family members too.

Please continue to encourage children to learn lines and song lyrics. See lyrics for our songs here... It's all Greek to me, Have you heard the story? and It's all Greek to me.  Also, Ode to the Ancient Greeks Have fun :-)


Children who have been cast as teachers should wear a white shirt and black trousers, children and fact readers/statues in the play should be dressed in ancient Greek clothing. A white sheet is a great idea for a toga, with a belt and white t-shirt underneath. 

If your child has been cast as a different character (an animal, monster dinner lady etc) we will give them individual ideas to discuss at home. Here's an idea for a simple Greek child costume.

Simple Top Tip! It's also been suggested as a great idea for costumes to use an old pillowcase as a toga. Dress it with a belt or bright gold or red material.
