Welcome to 4J with Miss Jones and Miss Thompson  

Hello! 4J are a class of 29 children. We are a happy and enthusiastic class who love to be challenged in every lesson! We are very excited to start our journey as year 4 children and learn lots of new and exciting things. 4J always try their best to 'Strive for 5' and are going for gold in their times tables. 4J, Miss Jones and Miss Thompson are looking forward to a fantastic year!

Norman Research

4J used their computing skills to label a diagram of a Motte and Bailey Castle and then to find interesting facts about motte and bailey castles in the UK.

The Egg Experiment!

4J placed 4 eggs into different containers and added Coca Cola to one, vinegar to another, tea to another and covered the last in toothpaste. They left them for a week and then examined the results.

The Battle of 4J, 2020

4J learnt about the Battle of Hastings, 1066. They used historical information to guess who would win before finding out the truth. They then learnt about the progress of the battle and re-enacted it.


4J have been learning about time. They have learnt how to tell the time and how to use their knowledge to answer time problems.


4J have been using their paragraphing knowledge to rearrange sentences from a narrative into a sensible order.
