Welcome to Sun Class!


Welcome Year 4,  


The adults that work in this class are Mrs James, Mrs Whittaker, and Mrs Richards.


Your new learning experience is:   Is Bigger Better


YEAR 4 - SUN CLASS (Bake Off Outcome Photos) 

Before we baked our own bread rolls, Year 4 investigated chemical reactions with yeast to see how it affects dough. We made predictions with excellent scientific language and monitored the changes throughout the day.

Year 4 have thoroughly enjoyed their Bake Off learning experience. On Tuesday, all their taste-testing and detailed planning resulted in baking their own bread rolls to enjoy. Everyone had great fun kneading the dough and incorporating interesting flavours, which were then enjoyed at home.


If your child is self-isolating and working from home, please see below, two days, worth of work that can be completed.



1. Review the Common Exception spelling words. Choose from the Autumn and Spring Term lists, words that you don't know yet and learn the spellings.

Put each word into a sentence, using accurate punctuation and a conjunction.


2. Read the text about Adventures. Complete the task finding evidence of the different themes.


3. Choose one story starter, as the basis for your own story, about Nasira or Leon.

Finish the story. Don't forget to use:

  • clear sentence structure with accurate punctuation
  • conjunctions
  • different openers
  • paragraphs

Finally, check and edit your work carefully.
