Ranskill Primary School

Inspiring children to Shine at their best

See our new section for out of hours childcare.

Welcome to Class 4!

Miss Caborn


PE is now on Tuesdays with Miss Caborn/Mr Daddy and Fridays with Mrs Walker. Every child is expected to have their PE kit in school on those days.

Homework is given out every Friday and is expected to be returned no later than Wednesday morning. Children will receive two dojos for the completion of homework, that is also handed in on time.

Every Friday, Class 4 will have a times tables test and spelling test. Please help your child at home by practising these key skills.


One of the books we read this year - The Explorer by Kathrine Rundell - was a huge success with the children! We learnt all about survival in the Amazon Rainforest, including building a shelter from natural products. You can see the pictures below of our mini shelters!

We have really got our teeth stuck into Halloween this year, as we have been mixing potions in maths. Some of the key ingredients include Frankenstein's snot, Devil tears, Unicorn sweat and other gruesome liquids! We had lots of fun accurately measuring, estimating and comparing different amounts. You can see how closely we had to look in the pictures below.

 This half term we have been learning about Native Americans and comparing how their life is different to ours. As well as writing character descriptions and writing a recount of Black Elk (A young Native American), we have also created some artwork. This is inspired by Leonara Carrington, who created artwork based on her dreams - some of which are very mysterious and extravagant. We created our own dreams based on her artwork!

We even tried to act out the life of Black Elk! This was then later created into a comic strip.

Have a look at the fabulous work we have already achieved in Class 4! We have confidently made 5 digit numbers from place value counters and participated in a critical thinking project involving Donald Trump and Mr Moody!
