Welcome back everyone after the Easter break. We hope that you have had the best possible break and that the children are looking forward to getting stuck into their learning again!

We are looking forward to lots this term, which will provide your children with new learning experiences as we continue to focus heavily on our times tables ready for our multiplication check this Summer.

The daily completion of reading diaries are still expected to a high standard – the children know exactly what we are looking for. We also need to continue to use the ‘Reading Eggspress’ online resource on a consistent basis to improve our reading and comprehension skills. This is the children’s weekly homework. Purple Mash activities set weekly are also expected to be completed. If you are having problems accessing this at home, please inform your class teacher. We would encourage you to listen to your child read and ask them questions based on what they have read to ensure understanding.

Phonics will continue to be taught daily in school. Your child will have a set of spellings given out each week that match the spelling pattern that is taught. As always, it’s expected that they return this sheet as evidence that they have practised. In addition to this, the children will also have their Rising Star spellings that are given out weekly, they are stuck in their reading diaries so that they can be read/spelt each night after reading.

PE days are still as follows:
Monday & Tuesday – Soccer 2000 – Games Outdoor kit required

(Please remember to have your outdoor PE kit consisting of: plain black jogging bottoms/green shorts now that it’s warmer, plain white t-shirt and black pumps or plain black trainers only.)
Also a reminder that no jewellery can be worn during PE lessons.

We look forward to seeing you all again!

Class 10 have enjoyed learning to play the Violin with the Wolverhampton Music School this half term.

Class 9 eagerly await their turn after the holiday!


March 2020

To celebrate British Science Week, children in Year 4 have been investigating: 'What materials make the best thermal insulator?'
We made our predictions before conducting our investigation.
In the afternoon, we shared our results with Key Stage 2 in a special assembly.

Well done to the children who took part in our mini performance!



February 2020

Year 4  had a wonderful morning with the Police Community Support Officer Team!
The children were extremely well behaved and the officers commented on the children's enthusiasm and positive attitude.
Well done children, we are very proud of you!



Year 4 had fun at Elston Hall Primary School with other pupils from across our trust.
They have been exploring the app 'Garage Band'. The children have learnt many skills that they are going to bring back to Goldthorn and teach their class friends.
We are looking forward to making music!


January 2020

Year 4 have kicked off their new topic 'Hey Mr DJ' with a Disco!
The children had a great afternoon dressed as their favourite musical artists.
We listened to recorded music over the years and talked about the different genres of music.


December 2019

Wow! What an amazing day. Year 4 have had a wonderful time making their boats as part of their learning this term. A big well done to them for their determination to succeed. Also, a special thank you to families who have collected the materials for them.





November 2019

Year 4 have had a fantastic morning with the VR Team looking at the different layers of the ocean and the animals that they would find in each layer. They even went down to the trenches! We were given great feedback on their behaviour and the wonderful manners that they have. The children were also congratulated on the use of their scientific vocabulary.
Well done Year 4, you have behaved with courtesy and all of the teachers are very proud of you!



October 2019

We have really enjoyed having a professional cricket coach in Year 4 this term.  We have learnt many skills that are needed for cricket. Most of all we have enjoyed working together as one big team!

In Science, Year 4 we have been exploring how materials can change state. We can describe the particles and how they move in a solid, liquid and a gas. 
We've had lots of fun melting chocolate into a liquid and then reversing it back into a solid! 

July 2019

During our Science week, Year 4 focussed on human digestion.  We explored the names and functions of the parts of the body involved in digestion but we needed to really understand how it worked . . . so we recreated our digestive systems using equipment found in most people’s houses.  It was great, smelly, but great!  Ask your child how digestions works and be prepared for all of the fascinating facts and delicious smell descriptions.


July 2019

The Vikings are coming!  We spent the day as Anglo-Saxon families preparing our food, sharpening our weapons and creating our clothes.  During the afternoon we practised our warfare ready to defend our land from those vicious Viking invaders.  We all had a great time and learned lots about Anglo-Saxon Britain and even used artefacts made by actual Anglo-Saxons all those years ago.


June 2019

We had a glorious day learning about many animals and their habitats.  After lunch we went exploring the farm land and found a wonderful adventure playground where we developed our climbing skills.




May 2018

On Friday the 25th of May,  Year 4 went for a visit to the Think Tank Science Museum in Birmingham. We visited around five different galleries in the museum as well as the Science Garden outside. As part of our visit we were able to see the wonderful animals and fossils in the Amazing Animals gallery and we also had a fantastic Amazing Animals workshop led by Rachel. In this workshop the children were able to touch and stroke various stuffed animals and see other fossils. At the end of the workshop we were able to classify the animals which linked to our learning in Science this term. All of the children agreed that it made for a wonderful day which really reinforced a lot of our learning in Science this year.
