Year 4 Achievement Award Winners!


Friday 15th January


This week's Achievement Awards go to Evie J, Yasmin, Seb L, Evelyn and Michael.



Every piece of work Yasmin has done has been beautifully presented and shown a clear understanding of the tasks set. This is Yasmin’s maths ‘Wanted Poster’ for the sneaky Patricia Parallelogram, where she has described Patricia’s mathematical properties extremely well so that anyone might identify her and report her to the police! Miss Barrett


Seb L

I am delighted to say that Seb has become an honorary Snow Leopard for the moment. He has joined a completely new class, under very new circumstances and continued to work his hardest. I particularly loved his design for Willy Wonka’s next invention – it’s a game of Russian roulette, choose your sweet carefully or you might end up the size of a mouse! Miss Barrett


Evie J

Evie has put her all to every task she has completed during remote learning this week. Each piece of work she submits is completed to the highest of standards. I loved all of you maths work this week, especially your wanted poster you described Roger Rhombus and Patricia Parallelogram so well - hopefully they get caught soon! Miss Mansfield 


Evelyn and Michael

I am so very impressed and incredibly proud of you both. Joining a new school can be a little scary and nerve-wracking at times, especially when you haven't been able to come in and meet your new classmates! I have been absolutely blown away by how well you have both jumped into our online learning so smoothly. You have joined in with all our story times and assemblies, given the tasks a go and tackled all the different challenges Teams brings. You should both be incredibly proud of what you have achieved already, and we are all so excited to have you join us in Falcons! Well done both of you! Mrs Post

Our Christmas Crafts

Harrogate Virtual Dance Competition 

During their PE lessons, the children had a go at learning a dance routine to the fantastic tune 'I Wanna Be Like You' from the film Jungle Book. You did a fantastic job Snow Leopards! 

Snow Leopards jungle book dance


The children learnt a verse each from the poem 'The Minotaur' which retells the famous ancient Greek myth of Theseus defeating the ferocious half-man, half-bull creature lurking in the depths of King Minos' labyrinth. They worked on how to use their voices to perform the poem in a way which really portrayed the meaning to the listener. Well done Snow Leopards!

Children in Need 2020

A big thank you for all your donations for Children In Need. The children created exercises with Joe Wicks, took part in some of the ‘Five To Thrive’ activities throughout the week and all looked great in their pyjamas, slippers and Pudsey-themed clothes today.  We will let you know how much we have raised once it has all been counted.

Remembrance Day 2020

For Remembrance Day this year, the children in Year 4 spent time learning about and remembering those people who died in World War 1 and World War 2. We found out where they lived and put poppies on a map of Harrogate to remember them. We recognised lots of streets we live on and some soldiers even lived in our houses!

National Poetry Day

For National Poetry Day, we created a '5-minute poem' about ourselves with the support of poet Simon Mole. It really demonstrated just how anyone could be a poet and what good fun it is to write poems. The ones the Snow Leopards created were brilliant and captured their personalities perfectly. Above are just a few examples. 

Harvest Festival

Year 4 have been celebrating Harvest Festival by finding out where our food comes from. In Snow Leopards, we started by learning about the origins of the Harvest Festival and learnt that during this time Christians may collect food, flowers and toiletries and give them to those in need. This is a way of saying thank you to God for all of the food we have. We continued our lesson by learning about where our food might come from, these include: Canada, Greenland, Argentina, Peru, Ecuador, Italy, Russia, Uganda, Australia and India. Here are our labelled maps, it is amazing how far some of our food travels to get to our homes!
