Class 4CP - Mrs Porter & Miss Brough


All homework will be set and collected on a Friday. Each Friday the children will be given a spelling activity and either a Maths or English activity. They will also receive a spelling list to learn which will be tested the following Friday. Results will be posted on the children’s Showbie account so you can see their results. Each week I would like the children to read at least 4 times if possible. In the children’s homework file is a section where reading can be recorded. 

I appreciate the time you spend with your child completing these activities.


Mrs Porter.

Summer 2

The children had a lovely time at Walney Nature Reserve following their topic on Coasts. The children discussed how sand dunes were formed, found evidence of coastal erosion, went pond dipping and found different animal tracks. We had lots of fun in the sun! 🌞

Coniston Water Park

The children really enjoyed their trip to Coniston Water. They took part in activities such as canoeing and orienteering. A great day had by all!  

Cumbria Music Hub

Cumbria Music Hub joined us today with the comedy string quartet, Graffiti Classics. The children really enjoyed this interactive performance. 

Spring 2

We are delighted to have the children back in school and they’re settling back into their routine nicely.

We are currently studying two Roald Dahl book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and George’s Marvellous Medicine. The children have so far enjoyed making posters for the golden ticket and learning all about the chocolate making process.Here are some of the children in our new reading area in class.

Measuring the size of shadows 
The children investigated what happened to the size of a shadow as the light source moved closer to the object.
Our new Geography topic is on weather and climate. In English we wrote some weather themed poems using similes and metaphors.

The Stone Age

For our History topic this term we are studying The Stone Age. This week in Art we looked at different cave paintings and made some of our own. The children really enjoyed creating their own pictures using pastels, which will look lovely on our walls. 

Stone Age Day
4CP enjoyed taking part in a Stone Age Day. The children had a great day baking bread, making shelters and jewellery. 
The children drew diagrams to show which bones they thought were in the human body.
