Welcome to Base 10!
This Year 4 Class are taught by Mrs J Maddock and Mrs S Fryer.
Our Teaching Assistant is Mr I Herring.
We aim to work hard and be kind to one another.
Every one of our pupils and staff will have been affected, in a variety of different ways, by the events of the pandemic. It is likely that some of us have experienced at least one of these five identified losses: “of routine, structure, friendship, opportunity and freedom” and that these “can trigger the emergence emotionally of anxiety, trauma and bereavement in any child”. We will continue to make a difference to the lives of our pupils and their families at this challenging time through our Recovery Curriculum; an approach that meets pupils at their current point of need; recognising their strengths to enable them to continue gaining skills and achieving success.
If you would like to have an idea of what the children will be up to this year, the following link will give you access to the National Curriculum for Year 4. Take a deep breath and dive in!

Homework helps the children consolidate their learning or prepare for new subjects. It is set on a Friday and must be returned the following Wednesday when we are both in the classroom.
In addition, the children are given spellings each Friday which they should practise in preparation for a test held the following Thursday - these are spellings they have been learning in the classroom during the week. Five of these words are taken from the rule we have been practising that week and five spellings are taken from the Common Exception Words list for Year 3/4. Please find a link to the full list below.

We have been learning about the amazing, caring Mary Seacole, who was a courageous nurse from Jamaica. She was born in 1805 to a Jamaican mother and Scottish father....ask the children in B10 for some more facts! We have produced some fantastic information pages and super artwork using the pointillism technique.
In Base 10 we love to use the laptops to play exciting maths games and we are currently practising our blogging skills using 2blog on Purple Mash.
