This half term our theme is printing.
We are using the theme of the Jabberwocky to create our very own printed monsters.
We have all done some amazing sketches using our imagination ; inspired from lots of different images of the Jabberwocky.
We have been experimenting with the effects of lines and texture to create a monoprint using foil as a printing plate.

Our topic for the start of this half term is Electrify! We're hoping to have a shocking time looking at electricity and the benefits it brings us. We'll be conducting experiments into how electricity works and thinking about how we can be safe around electrical equipment. We'll be constructing some simple circuits involving light bulbs and buzzers and, towards the end of our topic, will be using what we have learnt to construct a device to protect valuables from thieves!
At Torrisholme, we are continuously striving to develop ways to encourage our children to read for pleasure. We have created a ‘HOT BOOKS’ list of 30 up-to-date, age-appropriate texts, compiled from a range of suggested reading lists. This is not an exhaustive list of fabulous year group appropriate books but is more a fun challenge list for our children to explore texts written in a wide range of styles by a selection of current and popular children’s authors.
How many can your child read or share with you?
On your marks…
Welcome to 4B!
Hello and welcome to 4B! My name is Mr Burrow and I will be your teacher for the year! I'm new to the school but am excited for all the learning and excitement that will be happening in class 4B in the coming year.
Firstly, throughout this year we will be focusing on developing our learning skills, through resilience, determination and reflection. Our 'learning power pal' for the year is 'Not-Yet' the Yeti, a friend to all of us who helps us to focus on the positives and that there's nothing we don't know, just things we don't know YET!
Any questions or worries, or if you just fancy a chat, don't hesitate to come in!
