From Mr Rushden


  ??  Our Big Question  ??

We will have a 'big question' each week to get us thinking! Explain what you think the answer may be to your family and carers. Why do you think this? Can you use the conjunctions we have been learning in class to explain why you think this e.g. 'because', 'but'. Can you think of examples to support your answers?

'Can one person change the world?' 


Riddle Detectives!

Can you work out this riddle? What could you be? why do you think this?

'What is full of holes but can still hold water? '


English Task of the Week


I wonder…

Have a look at the link:

Use this picture to answer the questions provided. Every day, the challenges will change, and different images will appear. Try to make up your own stories and draw pictures about what you think might happen next. 

I would love to see what you have written and any pictures you may have drawn. Email me your creations:


Photo/Video of the week 


We will have a different video or photo each week to inspire our writing using descriptive vocabulary .Use your senses to describe what you would be able to see, hear, feel ,taste, smell and see. Write a description of this. 


Maths Challenge 


Roll a die 4 times to generate 4 numbers.

What 4-digit numbers can you make using each of your rolled numbers? Can you work systematically to find each of the different options? 

What's the difference between the smallest 4-digit number that you made and the highest? 


Choose one of your 4-digit numbers. How many different ways can you partition this number? 

Example: if you have the numbers 4, 6, 9 and 2- you could make 4692 so 4000 + 600 + 90 + 2.



Science Investigation


 There are lots of simple and fun things you can do at home to learn more in science.  Here are examples of different experiments you can at home. Each week, pick an experiment for the things you have at home. Make sure you work alongside an adult.

 Spring Term Year 4





This term our topic is based on the novel “The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips” by Michael Michael Morpurgo, who wrote “War Horse.” The focus of this topic is to follow the main character,Lily,a child living in Slapton Sands Devon in World War. We will use historic evidence to think about her day to day life and how it differs from our own. This will include such subjects from the book as:- the evacuees, the Battle of Britain and the Blitz, rationing, the Desert War in North Africa, The Battle of the Atlantic, U.S. soldiers, the Slapton Sands tragedy and the build up to D’day.



Your child will continue to receive English and maths homework in the form of times tables and spellings. This will go out on a Friday and be due back in on a Wednesday.


Please continue to read regularly at home, at least 3 times a week would be lovely.   Discussing your child’s reading books is also extremely important, especially using how and why questions.



P.E. is on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Indoor activities such as gymnastics with Mr. Rushden and outdoor with sports coach Tariq. Please ensure that your child has their correct PE kit with them on these day in order that they can participate. It is very helpful to have all the children’s uniform clearly labelled Children with hair longer than shoulder length need to have it tied back. Stud earrings must be removed, either by you or your child, prior to the session.



If you have any questions, concerns or queries please speak to me.  Should you need to chat with me please contact the office to arrange a meeting.  Please do not hesitate to do this as I would far rather communicate quickly and resolve a worry, or issue, than leave it. Also, please keep an eye on the school website for any further news and diary dates.


Kind Regards from


Mr. Rushden (Class teacher and Assistant Head) and Ms. Jones (Learning Support Assistant to class 4)
