To Class 4,
It was so lovely to see you at the picnics. You all look so grown up and happy. I know you are all ready for middle school but I have put a 'Moving to Middle school' sheet below to help you think about the transition.
I would like to thank all the teachers from both middle schools who came to talk to you at our picnics and a big thank you to Mrs Dixon for the fabulous picnic food.
Class 4, it is now time for me to say good bye to you. It is very hard as I have enjoyed teaching you this year and seeing how much you have grown up since I taught you in class 1.
I have so many memories of this year. I couldn't have chosen a better class for teaching the curriculum in the new way. The discussions we had in geography and history were amazing and I learnt as much as you did. You took to your science roles in groups really well and became proper scientists, even when trying to sing the science song!
You managed to fit a lot into this year even though it was cut short. There was the 'Tour of Britain' bike ride mascots, the Melva theatre workshops, 'Oliver' at the Town Hall ,the great animations you made in the animation workshops, the skipping festival and multiskills festival.
Who could forget the 'Silent Night' Christmas play where you all did so well.
Thank you for giving me such good memories with lots of laughter.
I wish you all the very best. I am very proud of all you achieved this year and you should be proud of yourselves.
I have added the photos from the picnic.
Hello Class 4,
I am looking forward to seeing you at the Class 4 picnic this week (weather permitting).
If you would like to try your times tables try going onto school 360. Go to Resources, J2e then J2blast. You can see how well you can do compared to other children in the world! Good luck.
Week Beginning 29th June
Hello Class 4.
I have added a link for a video from Tweedmouth Middle School as part of your transition. Please have a look at it. If you have any questions we will try and answer them on picnic day.
Week Beginning 22nd June
Hello Class 4. Hope you are all well. Please remember to let us know who you would like to be with at the Class 4 picnic.
I have added more points for you on School 360. Don't forget to look at the home learning page on school 360, the 'What's on This Week' page has lots of ideas for things to do.
Are you missing sports day? Try the virtual sports day challenge and send in a photo.
As always, a weekly timetable is attached.
Looking forward to our picnic.
Hello Class 4,
We have been working hard trying to find a way to get you together safely before you move on to Middle school. I would love to see you all again. If you know someone in the class who can't always access the website please let them know about our picnic.
Hello Class 4, hope you are all keeping well.
This week in school would have been bike week. I have attached some activities you can complete with your bike/scooter at home or when out and about. Please take some photographs and email them to email@example.com and I will upload them to our class page.
Hello Class 4, I hope you managed to enjoy your half term holiday and keep well.
I bet lots of paddling pools were in use. I tried growing some veg but my naughty dog dug them up ! I was not pleased. I just had to eat some ice cream instead!
If you are interested in the countryside you might like to investigate the website : countrysideclassroom.org.uk/farmingfortnight. There will be little films from farmers showing different animals on their farms from 1st June.
Hello Everyone, I hope you all managed to have a lovely Easter and got to eat some Easter eggs.
I have added a timetable but if you have your own timetable that you prefer that is okay.
I have carried on with the maths. For English I have put another 'Take 5' piece of work. It is from the story 'The Bluest of Blues' by Fiona Robinson.
The BBC Bitesize website are starting lessons and activities that will help you and any adults aswell. Primary Lessons begin at 9am. Have a look and enjoy the different topics and activities.
I have added some of the geography topic work that we would have been doing. It is not all of it and I will miss the discussions about it that you are all so good at. Have a go but don't worry too much if it gets tricky, you can always carry on with your own projects.
Week Beginning 27th April
This week we are beginning the lessons using the Oak Academy home learning.
Class 4 are starting by using the maths. The first topic is perimeter, which we did in school, so it should just be a reminder for you.
Look at the weekly timetable for extra information.
As you are all using online resources so much at this time I would like you all to do some E safety activities. Use your school360 website to do this. Go to resources then scroll down to E safety and complete the games and activities for your age group.
Keep safe and well.

Thank you Miss Lee.
Welcome to Class 4.
We have all settled back into school for our final year at Tweedmouth Prior Park First School.
Our main goal for the year is to learn to take responsibility for ourselves so we can be prepared for when we go to Middle School. This means being responsible for bringing homework in on time and bringing books, P.E. kit and swimming things to school.
In Class 4 we have guided reading sessions once a week in the classroom but we should be reading every night. We are looking at extending our vocabulary from our reading to use in our writing.
We have some interesting topics for science, geography and history this year so please look at our topic plan each term.
Class 4 teacher: Miss A Cowin
T.A. support: Miss E Short (am)
As part of our transition Class 4 had a visit from Miss Garland with her therapy dog. We did some whole class work then worked in two groups to do some activities.
Everyone loved the dog and now class 4 know they can look out for a familiar face when they move to Middle school.
As part of the Berwick Arts Award Programme Class 4 had a lovely day learning how to make animated films.
We all had great fun and learnt how hard it was to produce a short animation. The children all said it was the best day ever and that it was 'awesome'. Thank you to Robin and Chloe who made this day possible.
