During British Science Week, the children carried out some experiments to do with the topic of 'journeys' How far will the balloon travel? Fantastic scientific language and knowledge shown by the children. We considered fair testing and applied lots of science knowledge when recording our observations.

Fantastic World Book Day costumes from year 4. You all looked amazing!
Learning your time tables is important in everyday maths. How far can you go with your levels?

Goldsmiths have been learning about tooth decay.They carried out an experiment to determine which types of drinks have the most negative effect on their teeth and how long it take for decay to form.


All Year 4 staff would like to extend a huge 'thank you' to those parents and carers who are supporting our belief in the value of HOME LEARNING.

We are delighted with the number of children who are doing their weekly Home Learning tasks, and returning their books on time.


Sadly, there are still a number of children who are not participating in the Home Learning programme; this means that they are not benefiting from the consolidation of recent learning that the tasks provide.

PLEASE encourage your children to complete their Home Learning; if they do not understand a task, any member of staff will be happy to explain it.



Non - Fiction HOOK

Year 4 children worked together to compile a list of questions to ask their teachers. The questions they wrote were about their experiences in primary school.


Some very interesting questions ... and answers!

With our new skills, we are able to share our work and talk about ways to improve our writing.

At Drapers we believe in the value of TEAMWORK; children gain huge benefits from working with each other. They can support their peers by sharing knowledge and skills.

In MATHS this week Year 4 worked in groups to solve problems using addition and subtraction.Image result for teamwork

Year 4 have been concentrating on some areas of English grammar to help improve their writing.

Parents, carers, family members and friends, be so PROUD of these children!

They have all demonstrated an understanding of the spelling rule for creating plural nouns with 's' and 'es'.

That have also shown understanding of the rules for using 'a' and 'an' before nouns.

We have some fantastically artistic children in Year 4.

The focus of Collage University this week was 'Flowers and Plants'.

Here are a few of the results; aren't they wonderful?

Year 4 have been learning about negative numbers.

Goldsmith Class Information

Hello and welcome to Goldsmiths class. We are looking forward to sharing our progress and the learning taking place in our class with you this year.


We have P.E on Wednesdays and Thursdays each week and it is really important that your child is properly equipped for these lessons with T-shirt, shorts, trainers and as the weather gets colder, track suit bottoms.


Every child will be sent home weekly homework,consisting of spellings and timetables on a Friday . This will need to be brought back to school the following Wednesday every week.


Reading record books are sent home daily. It is important that every child reads on a daily basis and has their book signed. This book should be brought to school every day.


If you have any questions I am available at home time each day.
