Welcome to Tropical Fish Class


Class teachers - Mrs Davies and Mr Lewis

Classroom support assistants - Mr Griffiths



Our weekly routines at present are as follow:

  • School start time is 9:00am and our finish time is 3:15pm
  • Wednesday's are always our outdoor games lessons.  The children will need to bring their P.E kit with them every week, regardless of the weather. 


Pupils will have a number of usernames and passwords for different services we provide at school. Some of these passwords will be needed to access these services at home too - please ask your child if they have their passwords for the following:

  •  Hwb
  •  RM Maths
  •  Lexia
  • Big Maths
  • TT Rockstars


We would be very grateful if the children could bring their reading book with them every day in order for us to read with them regularly during the school week.


 You are invited to join the 'Tropical Fish' Class Dojo account - please enquire at school for further information.


We hope the children enjoy their time in Year 4!


Autumn term 


Our topic this term is titled 'Everything Changes' where we will be focusing largely on women in sport and the equality between men and women in a range of different sports.  We will learn about the history behind sports and how things have changed over time, as well as how they continue to change.  We will undertake a range of Science and Technology and Numeracy based activities looking in to stride length and whether this has an effect on how fast we run.  We will also look in to lung capacity.  For further information, please see our termly newsletter that comes home with the children at the beginning of the term. 


The opportunities are endless for this topic and we are so excited to learn lots of interesting things over the coming weeks.  We hope your children enjoy too!

Spring term


Our topic for the Spring term is Carnival and Celebration.  During the term, we will be focusing largely on three different celebrations.  Those being, the Rio Carnival in Brazil, the Chinese New Year and the annual Welsh Eisteddfod.


This is a fun filled topic and we can't wait to undertake a number of creative activities linked to the different areas of learning. 


Just some of the lovely activities we are hoping to do are: 


- Design and make salt dough maps of South America, 

- Design and make carnival headdresses, 

- Make musical instruments, 

- Create our own carnival dances, 

- Tribal portraits, 

- Make Chinese lanterns and dragon masks as it's the year of the dragon, 

- Create pieces of artwork for the annual Eisteddfod, 

- Create carnival of the animal themed poetry, 

- Learn about the ear, its different parts and their functions, 

- Carry out science investigations in to sound and how sound travels.
