Super Literacy work!

This week, Year 4 have been writing persuasive letters to someone they know to try and persuade them to look after their teeth properly. Matthew wrote a very persuasive (and funny) letter to Miss Chittick. This is a small part of his letter:

“To begin with, you MUST take care of your teeth so that plaque does not spread around teeth town! Plaque is made up of harmful bacteria that stick to your teeth and it causes tooth decay and cavities. Do you want your NIGHTMARE to become a REALITY?”

Great work Matthew, I’m sure Miss Chittick will listen to you!

A messy memorable experience…

Our new topic ‘Burps, bottoms and bile’ teaches us about the digestive system which of course starts in the mouth! We started our science learning by looking at the teeth. For our memorable experience we used disclosing tablets to learn just how well we do clean our teeth!

What did you think of the memorable experience?

Public speaking by Ruby

As powerful as you are,

You may be scared.

But you should know,

Being yourself is better than being anyone else.

When you get up there on the stage,

And see a thousand eyes looking at you,

Getting down is not an option.

Because when you are up there,

You can’t get down,

Because otherwise you’re missing an opportunity to be great.


This week we have kicked off our new topic ‘Traders and Raiders’.For our memorable experience we built our Saxon ship to sail to Britain – ready to invade! In our Literacy lessons we are becoming reporters and creating news articles to explain this event!
