Welcome to 4GB class page!


Hello, my name is Mrs Bloor and I teach one of the Year 4 classes. I have been teaching at Offley since 2008 and have taught in most year groups. I am married and have two boys who are at the other end of the education system! James has recently graduated from univeristy and Henry is about to start university! I love animals and have a tortoise called Terri who is in her 90's and a Cavapoo called Lulu who I love taking for long walks. During the first lockdown I became involved with a hedgehog rescue centre and help them out by fostering hedgehogs whilst they are rehabilitating. I currently have a hoglet called Lady Loki, she's about 8 weeks old. I am also passionate about sustainability and developing the school grounds to encourage more wildlife to visit, so if you have any ideas do let me know.

Spellings are handed out on Friday and are tested the following Friday.


Week ending  


We have had another action packed week this week. We began the week preparing for our Pizza. We linked our work on Italy to our DT project for this term. We had a great time tasing different possible toppings for pizzas, such as olives, sweetcorn, pepperoni and peppers. Based on our choices we then designed our own pizzas with our favourite toppings. In small groups the children then followed a recipe and made their pizza base dough and created their individual quarters. After cooking them came the exciting tasting, all children were impressed with their pizzas! We completed the day by writing an evaluation of our pizzas and the process of making them.   


English this week involved the children hot seating the Queen of Darkness and finding out her reasons for keeping Blue John in the cave. These ideas have then been used to create and improve sentences using conjunctions, similes and expanded noun phrases. We have also considered the features of writing an explanation text and used them to write one based around 'How to make a cloud.'

After our work on fractions and focus on times tables we have moved on in Maths to scaling up and down. Using cuisennaire rods to compare the lengths of different rods, we found rods that were 3x longer or 1/3 shorter. We then used this knowledge to solve some problems.

Relating back to our pizzas we looked at Nutrition in Science and sorted foods into their appropriate groups and considered the nutrients different foods can give us. We also completed many challenges to show our understanding of food chains. 

In PE we introduced the children to some of the skills involved in badminton and identifying the similarities and differences with tennis. Our computing this week allowed the children to explore editing photographs using different colour filters as well as enhancing them using contrast, brightness and vignette.

Next week we have our transition days and will make a start on our big art project.

Have a great weekend.
