Our annual school Sports Day is Thursday 4th July. We will shortly be sending out a letter with further details and look forward to seeing you on the day.


Please see the curriculum newsletter for the themes of our upcoming lessons.

Easter egg competition

 Thank you for all your 'eggsellent' contributions to our Easter competition! You all did a 'cracking' job and judging was 'eggstremely' diffcult. 'Yolking' aside, the Year 4 winners were Maisie Marshall (Y4C), Emile Heath (Y4T) and Maddison Speakman (Y4M). 


TT Rockstars Day

The children enjoyed dressing up as rock stars for the day and had fun times tables 'battles' against the other Year 4 classes! Remember to use at home as well, using your own password. Here are some images from the day... 


Shadow Puppets

This term we have researched stories from other cultures, especially India. We have made our own shadow puppet theatre,  designed our characters and acted out the story of Rama and Sita. Please have a look at the video below to see the final result!

What is love at Highfield St Matthew's?

Here are some of our thoughts...


E-Safety Week


For E-Safety week, Y4 designed their own posters on Purple Mash to promote safety online.

They have enjoyed discussing this important subject and used Computing skills well to promote their message.

Well done!



Our theme topic this term is 'Were Vikings Vicious?' We have already researched Viking armour and have designed our own helmets which we will be making this term. Watch this space!
