Year 4C

Welcome to Miss Canniffe's class - Year 4C. We are the Bee Tribe.



Homework will be given every Friday and needs to be returned by the following Wednesday.


Children will be tested on spellings taken from the Year 3/4 spelling list. These will be tested every Monday and a new spelling list will be glued into spelling books. Some children may be given fewer spellings to learn if they are struggling.

Times Tables

By the end of Year 4, children need to know all their tables to 12x12. Each week your child will be given a times table to learn. These will be tested on Thursday.

To develop our TEAMWORK and PROBLEM SOLVING skills, Miss Canniffe set us some challenges outside in the quad!

The True Story of the Three Little Pigs

In English we have been looking at traditional tales. We compared different versions of the Three Little Pigs, then hot-seated the wolves and the pigs and held a trial to decide whether the wolf was guilty or not.




Our verdict? The wolf was INNOCENT.

Maths Mastery

In Maths, we've been using dienes to support our understanding of column subtraction.

Negotiating and influencing enterprise session

In pairs we chose our favourite colour and then took it in turns convincing people that our colour is the best.




Once we'd all made our arguments, we voted on the winner.

Our winning colour was BLUE!
