This term our Jigsaw topic is all about celebrating difference.  In Year 4 we have been looking at bullying, how it feels to be bullied and what it means to be a bystander.  

Watch at this video and see if you can answer some of the questions below.


How was Liam being bullied?

How did Jack react to what he saw?

Why didnt' Jack help Liam?  What was he worried about?

What did Jack do in the end to help Liam?

What would you have done if you were Jack?

Local Parks and Green Spaces

by Mrs Armstrong

In Year 4 this half term we are looking at some of the Green spaces and parks that are local to us, so far we have visited Alexandra Park and we will also be visiting Whitworth Park and Longford Park.  Did you know that Longford Park has a disc golf course?  Check out the video below.

We want to try and think of ideas to improve some of our local green spaces, we are going to write to our local MP Lucy Powell and suggest some ways in which we think Alexandra Park could be improved.  What would you do to improve a park?  What kinds of things do you like to do in the park?  Share your ideas with us below!

How do you feel about reading?

by Mrs Armstrong

For our first Guided Reading session this year 4B reflected on their thoughts and feelings about reading.  For some it is a great pleasure, a time to relax, use their imagination and have some calming down time.  For others it makes them feel stressed, bored and feeling like they are missing out on other things that they find relaxing and fun.

What do you think about reading?  What are your favourite kinds of books?  If you aren't a reader then why not?  What is it that stops you enjoying reading a good book?  

Maybe you have just read an amazing book and want to share it on here, maybe you haven't found the right type of book for you yet.  I am really looking forward to reading your posts!
