Welcome to Barn Owl class

There are 20 owltastic children in Barn Owl class. Mrs Glass is our class teacher. Keep an eye on the web site for all of the exciting things we have in store!


Year 4 is an exciting one and have lots of fantastic experiences and topics planned throughout the year. To help your child have a deeper understanding and to help make their learning more purposeful and enjoyable we would be grateful if you could assist them with any homework that has been set.

A quick reminder about reading. You all have your reading books and diaries now, so make sure you read every night and get your diaries signed by an adult.

(It would be great to get 100% Fab4 too!)

                 Remember books can only be changed on Monday and Thursday. 



Please make sure PE kits are in school all week!

 PE kit should consist of black shorts, white t-shirt and plimsolls or trainers, and black jogging bottoms for outdoor PE.

Spring term- Potions

Potion: a poison, a mixture, an aromaticbrew, a vapour, a liquis or sticky goo.

Welcome to the amazing, magical world of potions and their properties ...

Now scientists beware! There are some powerful and deadly potions out there - dangerous, unpreditable or plain tragic ( just ask Romeo and Juliet)

Use what you know about materials and their properties to create incredible potions in Professor Hazard's Potions class.



Welcome to Potions Class


Our topic this half term is Potions. We will be studying a number of texts including extracts from Harry Potter, Macbeth and Alice in Wonderland as well as making our own potent potions! Listed below you will find a quick slide show of the Potions Classroom and a list of ingredients that would be handy to have at home.

Sail back to the Dark Ages were battles were rife and fear reigned.

Find out about the Saxons, including how they lived and where they came from.

Meet the bloodthirsty Vikings from Scandinavia - never before had such terror swept the land.

Are you ready to shine a light on the dangerous and deadly Dark Ages? ….


OUR NEW CLASS - It's nearly ready!!


 Open wide - let's take a look inside. We're on a voyage of discovery to investigate the busy world inside your body. Do you have a toothy grin or a winning smile? Take dental impressions and test the effects of sugary substances on your pearly whites. Follow a tasty morsel as it makes its way through your digestive system, helped by some mouthwatering saliva. And don’t forget the importance of good hygiene at both ends. And whilst we’re talking business, could you recognise an animal just by its poo? Are you brave enough to take the challenge? Make a working model of the digestive system and use it to persuade others to eat healthily. Learn how to look after this marvellous belching, squelching, mixture making machine we call our body.
