Miss Forshaw's Book Recommendation #3
Hello Year 4! Since my last recommendation, I have read 3 books! Osberton will have seen the books I've been reading on the English working wall, but the one I want to share with you today is
"Ariki and the Island of Wonders"
written by Nicola Davies and beautifully illustrated by Nicola Kinnear.
This story is about a young girl called Ariki, and her adventures to becoming a 'Star Walker'. After 'borrowing' a boat and surviving a storm, Ariki and her friend Ipo wash up on a new island. The island is home to amazing creatures, sights and smells that they have never seen, including a HUGE bird called 'Mweep'. Can Ariki and Ipo find their way back home? Will they need extra help? You'll have to read it to find out!
Calling all our talented children!

We had a lovely time trying to make our submarines work. We have included a PowerPoint to remind you how we did it, just incase you want to try it at home!
How to make a submarine
Miss Forshaw's Book Recommendation #2
As you know, I'm always reading. I love reading books that are aimed at all ages, both children and adults. Only a couple of days ago, I finished a wonderful book called 'The Wild Robot' by Peter Brown.
This book is about a robot called Roz, who washes up on an island somewhere after her ship crashed in a storm. She learns how to feel real feelings, make real friends, and learns how to embrace the wild side of life.
I read this book in just a few days. I loved the fabulous characters, like Chitchat the squirrel, and Mr and Mrs Badger. If you decide to read this book, please let me know! I want to know what you think
Week beginning 4th May 2021
Hello Year 4!
You have had a wonderful 2 weeks back in school since the Easter holidays. We have started our brand new topic, 'Blue Abyss' where we are learning all about the ocean, creatures and submarines. In English, we have looked at the picture book, 'Flotsam', which was full of unusual but exciting things deep down in the ocean. In maths, we have been working on money, and how to answer test-style questions.
As always, you have impressed us all week! This week we will be doing more work on 'Flotsam', decimals and submarines. We hope you are as excited as we are!!
Remember to keep bringing those reading diaries in at the beginning of the week!
Week beginning 29th March 2021
Another fantastic week this week Year 4! You have been writing some fantastic stories in English, learning even more about fractions and how to add and subtract them in maths, and have made some beautiful artwork for the National Day of Reflection. As always, we are so proud of how well you have settled into school and the amazing progress you are making.
This week we will be doing some Spring and Easter themed work that will be full of fun activities and exciting learning. We hope you will continue to be as enthusiastic and determined in our last few days of term as you have been since you came back!
Remember to keep up the fantastic reading to your adults at home - you have AMAZED us this week!
Miss Forshaw's Book Recommendation #1
Now, Osberton have had the pleasure of reading this story before Christmas as their class reader. Many of you may already have the book, have spoken about it to friends and family, or maybe you haven't heard of it at all!
This book is about a young boy called Ahmet who moves to England from Syria, as his country is at war. He joins a new class knowing no English at all, and faces many difficulties in adjusting to his new life. This story tackles bullying, friendship, honesty, trust, community and school life, all within its 320 pages. "The Boy at the Back of the Class" will make you laugh, cry, shout and you will definitely fall a little bit in love with the characters!
If you have read this book and would like to share your thoughts on it with your classmates, let one of the Year 4 team know and we would love to showcase your book review!
Week beginning 22nd March
Hello Year 4!
What a fantastic second week you have had! You have already settled back into our school routines and have produced some amazing work. We are so proud of you!
In English, you have been reading Chapters 2 and 3 of Pinocchio, and have started to write diary entries using first person, past tense and emotions vocabulary. This week, you will continue to work on this story, just what will Pinocchio do with those gold coins? We can't wait to see more of your amazing work on this topic!
In maths, you have been working on equivalent fractions, and we are so impressed! You have found so many different ways to represent a whole, a half, a quarter and a third. This week, we will be learning about improper fractions, adding, and subtracting fractions. Let's do this!
In RSHE, you have produced some fabulous work all about feelings and emotions, based on the Disney Pixar film, "Inside Out". This week we will continue to watch clips from the film to help us with our RSHE work
WOW! You have blown us away with all of your fantastic reading. We can tell you have been working hard at home! We would like you to continue with your reading, read to your adults, to your pets, even to your teddy bear! Remember to log your reading in your reading diaries and bring these into school for us to see!
If you fancy a challenge - write or record a short book review of a book you have read! We would love to hear all about it
Keep a look out for Miss Forshaw's book reviews!

It's getting very exciting in school as we approach Christmas. Parents - we have heard all about those naughty elves that are getting up to mischief in your homes!!
Today (Friday the 4th December) we had "Elf day" - a charity event to raise money for the Alzheimers Society. The children dressed up as elves for the day or wore red, green and white. Our donations will be sent to the charity.
During the day, the children learnt about what it means for people to suffer from Alzheimers and how it affects families. They also shared their stories about their own grandparents and how we are all trying to support family members through the Covid pandemic.
We did lots of exciting elf activities and also aimed to spread kindness by doing lots of good deeds over the course of the day.
Below are some photos taken during the day...

This week in Maths we are counting in different ways: in 5s, 10s, 100s and 25s. We are also starting to look at negative numbers and Roman numerals.
In English, we are studying a new book: "In my Heart". This is going to help us with our fronted adverbials and similes. Your writing is getting better and better so we can't wait to see what you come up with next.
Keep up the amazing work and we look forward to your emails
