Zoom Calls!

Posted on Monday 22 June 2020 by Mr Wilks

Hello Y4 Parents / Carers!

I would love it if your home learners could join me for a Zoom call this week. We’ll talk about lockdown, home learning and  compare lockdown hairstyles!

There will be two sessions:

Wednesday 24th June @ 10am

Thursday 25th June @ 10am

Email me at [email protected] to let me know which one you would like to join and let me know the name that will appear in the Zoom call – I won’t allow anyone into the meeting if I’m not expecting them. Ideally, the name would be the child’s first and last name, but it can be your name. (And please make sure the name is appropriate.)

I’ll limit numbers to the meetings to about 12 children so that we all get a chance to talk. The sessions will last approximately 30 minutes.  I’ll ask a couple of questions which will include questions related to home learning:

  • What home learning have you felt most proud of?
  • What learning have you made most progress with at home?
  • What sort of learning routine are you in?

It would be great if your child has thought about these so they’re able to answer a question like that.

Hope to see you there!

Mr W


Take a seat

In school, the children have been designing and constructing chairs. We looked at many different examples and enjoyed sketching some.

Doing design and technology, whilst social distancing, is tricky! However, the children were mature and followed the rules well.

The finished products!


Super photography!

Hi Year 4s

Have a look at the amazing photos Harman has taken. Do you recognise where they were taken? That’s it, Roundhay Park!

Fabulous home learning!

Hello Year 4s!

I hope you’ve had a good week! Thanks very much for sending me some excellent photos of what you’ve been doing.

Amazing artwork

Today, the children in school learnt all about Amelia Mary Earhart. She was the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. Bones discovered on a Pacific island belong to Amelia Earhart, a ...

After lots of discussion about Amelia’s heroic adventures, we had a go at drawing some pictures of her in an aircraft.

I’m sure you will agree that the sketches are superb!

Well done, Ewan, Bridget, Harman, Vedant, Shameeska, Jodie and Sam.

A week at Moortown

Posted on Monday 18 May 2020 by Mr Owen

Hi everyone,

How are you all? I hope you’ve had a good weekend and are raring to go for another week of home learning.

We had a good week at school last week. We made about as much sweet music as 8 children under 10 can make with xylophones…

We constructed weird and wonderful creations with bricks…

and tried something new when we made some lovely artwork with coloured sand.

What have you tried that was new?

Hi everyone,

Hope you’re doing well. I’ve attached a few photos of my lockdown which has involved lots of den building, walking in Gledhow Valley Woods (spot the ducklings), taking my cat for a walk (long story), buying crocs (a clear sign of my middle age),  and my greatest accomplishment: learning to do plaits!

Year 4 Home Learning

Posted on Sunday 17 May 2020 by Mr Wilks

Hello everyone,

Well done on all the great learning you’re doing at home. Whether it’s the daily tasks or the other activities you’re doing. It’s brilliant to see it all.

Here we have some super sketching, wicked whittling skills, cracking computing, magic mathematics, courageous climbing and relaxing reading!

The Book of Hopes

The Book of Hopes: Words and Pictures to Comfort, Inspire and Entertain Children in Lockdown


Hi everyone,

I wanted to share this remarkable collection collection of short stories, poems, essays and pictures with you. It was contributions from more than 110 children’s writers and illustrators, including Lauren Child, Anthony Horowitz, Greg James and Chris Smith, Michael Morpurgo, Liz Pichon, Axel Scheffler, Francesca Simon and Jacqueline Wilson.

You can read it here.

Each text has been selected to give children hope, to entertain, to warm the heart and, though I’ve only read a few, they certainly fit that description. I’d definitely recommend giving them a go – they’re probably aimed more at KS2 children, but some would be great to read to younger children.

The collection is dedicated to the doctors, nurses, carers, porters, cleaners and everyone currently working in hospitals.

Take care,

Mr Owen
