Happy April Fools day!


What is April fools day?


April fools day is celebrated on 1st April.

•It should be light-hearted and funny to all involved, including  the victim.

•The pranks should not hurt anyone, cause harm or be illegal.


In England and some other English speaking countries, people follow the custom that pranks can only happen before 12 o’clock (noon). After then, anyone who tries to play a prank actually turns out to be the ‘April fool’!


Printed media and tabloids, including some newspapers and websites, report fake stories. 


 In 1957, to celebrate April Fools’ Day, the   

 BBC showed a film about the spaghetti 

 harvest in Switzerland. This managed to 

 fool a lot of viewers into thinking that  

 spaghetti grew on trees!


In 2015, a well-known supermarket said they were going to introduce trampolines in the aisles so that shoppers could reach the high shelves!! 


Last year Mrs Willshire was tricked by another teacher in Kensington Primary! She was told that Primark would open on 31st April and everything would be 50p!!!  surprise


Make sure that you are keeping up with your daily exercises! Your class teachers are! 


Can we remind you to log into TT rockstars and Reading plus regularly, we can see who has and has not completed their tasks!


Have a fantastic day everyone!


We are missing teaching you!

WOW Visitor 


As part of out imaginary worlds topic in English, we were visited by author
Cat Weatherill . We had an immersive experience in the immersion room where we used our imagination to transport ourselves to another world.

In science we have been learning about teeth.

Why do we need our teeth? What do they do?

Very importantly we have been learning how to care for our teeth. Year 4 have started the Colgate challenge.

We started year 4 using “Voices in the Park” by Anthony Browne. By using just the pictures of the text we have created exciting adjectives to describe what is happening in the pictures. Through the text we have used role play to create speech and develop a further understanding of the text. We wrote in 1st person from the viewpoint of one of the dogs to create a wow write.


Following on from “Voices in the Park”, we studied The Ghost thief. This was a spooky story that gave us lots of opportunities to develop our reading skills.


This week, we are developing the skills and vocabulary to write a setting description of an imaginary world.




We have started the year looking at counting in multiples and place value of 4 digit numbers.


The children have used a range of resources to help them to understand how to count in multiples securely.


Each child has log on details and a password for times tables rock stars. Please encourage your child to complete these as often as possible as times tables knowledge is incredibly important. Times tables rock stars is a free APP that can be downloaded unto any mobile device. Throughout the year competitions are held using times tables rock stars.




In history we have started to research The Anglo Saxons.



Our music for the Autumn term we will be working with Miss White to create a performance that you are all invited to in December. 



Science work has involved the classification of animals.

Do you know what a herbivore is? A carnivore?

We then moved onto looking at teeth and their functions. Can you name them all?
