Hi Year 4, 


We are almost at the end of term.  I know some of you are struggling now to stay motivated but there's only two more weeks left....keep going!  The children at school are all working incredibly hard and they produced some amazing stories last week.  We are continuing to follow the White Rose for our Maths lessons and I've uploaded a booklet called 'Goblinology: The Ultimate guide to Goblins.' I hope you enjoy working though it; it provides the opportunity for you to write a report and a set of instructions over the final two weeks.  I've also uploaded an optional booklet which provides extra Maths worksheets based on this weeks lessons as well as a selection of English lessons. 

Have a great week.

Hi everyone,

If you are reading this, that means you are still accessing home learning.  A MASSIVE WELL DONE TO YOU! For those of you who are getting a bit fed up, you've only got 3 more weeks of it! Keep going!  Thank you to those of you who put a smile on my face each week with your messages and your fabulous work.  I would love to read your adventure stories that you are writing this week as well as anything else that you have done that you would like to share.  

Have a great week.  

Miss Ironmonger   


**I have added some learning packs from Classroom Secrets under this weeks resources if you would like extra or alternative activities to support your learning.  Also don't forget BBC Bitesize Daily lessons and The Oak National Academy where you will find lots to choose from.**


Hi Year 4, 

I hope you are all well and have had a good weekend.  I'm good and have had a great week at work.  I've enjoyed the sunshine again this weekend and have had a trip to Belton Park with some friends.  It was so nice to be able to meet up with people.  I'm having some decking put down in my back garden so I have been to the garden centres to have a look for some furniture to go on it when it is finished.    

We are continuing to use the text Amazing Aliens this week in English and I am hoping you can upload any of your home learning on Purple Mash for me to see or email it to me at enquiries@harlaxton.lincs.sch.uk

Have a great week

Transition to Year 5

Hi Year 4, 

I hope you're all well and you've had a good first week back 'home learning' after the half term.  I've been back to work this week.  It's been lovely to see some familiar faces but I miss the rest of you.  Please send me a message on Purple Mash to let me know how you are getting on. Once you've logged into Purple Mash, you need to click on the 'sharing' Tab at the top of the page, then click on 'Shared Blogs' and then click on our Year 4 Blog. I hope you are still getting outside despite the weather not being very nice over the last few days.   

Look after yourselves

Miss Ironmonger  

Hi Year 4, 

I hope you have all had an amazing week off from 'home learning' and you have continued to enjoy the beautiful weather we are being blessed with. I have spent lots of time relaxing in the garden this week and have eaten lots of ice creams! We are now entering the final term of Year 4 so I hope you continue to work really hard for the last term before it's time for the summer holidays.  I'm excited about returning to work this week and am really looking forward to seeing a few of you back in the classroom.

Miss you all

Take care of yourselves. 

Miss Ironmonger



Hi Year 4, 

Hope you have had a good week.  Only one more week of home learning and then you can have a week off because it is half term.  It's been so lovely to chat to some of you and your parents on the telephone this week.  I have really enjoyed hearing how you are all getting on at home.  You are all amazing. It's also great to see a few more of you commenting on our class blog this week and uploading your work.  I'll keep an eye on the blog and hopefully some of you will upload your poem or send a message. 

Take care of yourselves

Miss Ironmonger    


Hi Year 4,

I hope you and your families are all well and keeping safe.  Hopefully you are all managing to do some of your school work but if you're struggling for any reason whether that be you haven't got access to a computer or your parents are working and can't help you, please don't worry just do what you can.  I'm sure you are all desperate to see your friends and family, I know I am am.  It feels such a long time since I last saw you but at the same time the last 7 weeks have gone incredibly quickly.  Time's a strange thing! It's great to hear from lots of you on Purple Mash and see what you have been up to.  If you haven't managed to log onto Purple Mash yet, it would be lovely to hear from you this week.

Take Care, be kind to all of your siblings and parents and hopefully I will see you all again soon.

Miss Ironmonger    

Hi everyone, 

I hope you have had a fabulous Easter holiday and have managed to enjoy the beautiful weather.  It has been lovely to hear from some of you on our class blog on Purple Mash and I will continue to read your messages and tell you what I've been up to.  I will continue to add a weekly timetable as well as a few extra bits for those workaholics among you.  If you need to contact me, please email school and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

I hope you have all had a good second week off.  I have been in school this week and it has been incredibly quiet and strange without you all.  It's been great catching up with some of you on our class blog and it's lovely to see how busy some of you are on Education City and Purple Mash.  I will continue checking our class blog so please feel free to send me messages to let me know what you've been up to. 

As it is the Easter holidays now, there will be no new timetable for the next 2 weeks. However,  I have attached a some Easter activities below if you want to keep busy! 

Have a lovely Easter break. I hope the Easter bunny is kind to you next weekend.

Miss you all lots.

Leader in Me


On a daily basis, the children try to demonstrate our core values within school. As we aim to practise them so often, they become good habits that we can use not only in school but also at home too. 


  • Habit 1: Be Proactive (You’re in Charge)
  • Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind (Have a Plan)
  • Habit 3: Put First Things First (Work First, Then Play)
  • Habit 4: Think Win-Win (Everyone Can Win)
  • Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood(Listen Before You Talk)
  • Habit 6: Synergise (Together Is Better)
  • Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw (Balance Feels Best)


Growth Mindset


This year we will be helping the children to develop a Growth Mindset. This aims to increase their resilience, perseverance and independence in their learning. Further information can be found by following the link below.

British Values


Homework is given out on a Thursday to be returned by the following Wednesday. It will consist of a piece of English or Maths work which will consolidate your learning from the week.


Spellings are in the back of your homework book and will be tested on every Thursday. A copy of this terms spellings is also on the school website. 


Keep practising your times tables. You need to be able to recall multiplication and division facts up to 12 x 12.
