Year 4 2019 - 2020

I am very excited to be teaching Year 4 this year.
I have a passion for travelling, experiencing different cultures and especially indulging in their food. Fortunately, another of my great loves is exercise from skiing to yoga (so it balances itself out …most of the time).
I also enjoy the performing arts and very much look forward to getting involved in the Rode Heath productions.

I am passionate about education and try to make learning fun in my classroom. Children need to be motivated to learn well. Outside the classroom my other passion is for horses of which I am lucky enough to own two. I also have a Rhodesian Ridgeback called Kito.

I have volunteered at Rode Heath in the past, across the Key Stages, and have thoroughly enjoyed it.

Outside of school I am a leader at Beaver Scouts in the local village. I have two boys and we love adventuring, riding bikes, paddle boarding and reading. I also love photography so I take lots of photos of what we get up to.

I am absolutely thrilled to be in Year 4 this year with your fantastic children.


Thinking Like an Engineer

Welcome to Year 4. We are now in our fourth year of our engineering project, which has proved very popular with both children and adults alike, and is starting to reap educational benefits. We will be continuing to weave Engineering Habits of Mind into our curriculum - through Literacy, Maths and Science - particularly looking at how characters in our class text might solve their problems using engineering solutions. We will have a number of tinkering projects on the go to develop the children's problem solving skills - so please collect and send in any junk materials that you have at home: plastic bottle tops, cardboard tubes etc. Later in the year we will again be part of the Greater Manchester Engineering Challenge with Manchester University and other schools. Watch our page for more information.


Continuing the learning journey at home…

Although we are missing you all, it was lovely to catch up with so many of you over the phone recently. We hope you are having the opportunity to play games, bake, go for nice walks with your family etc during these unusual times. As discussed, please film / photograph the wonderful things you have been doing and email them to us so we can share them on the website with the wider Rode Heath School community at:

We can't wait to see your creations!

*A big well done to those who have not only been reading but also quizzing from home! Outstanding effort: Eva, Jamie,  Lewis, Lola, Daisy, George, Ella, Aaron and Spencer. We are very proud of you! The rest of you, make sure you are reading - and remember to quiz!

After the Easter break, we will update the website with activities for you to complete on a weekly basis. In the meantime, if you would like something to do, continue with TTRockstars, there are many, many activities for you to try on Educationcity (they don't have to be set for you to do the activities), help around the house, play games, draw and read, read, read!

Some people asked for Roman book recommendations. These are good ones: 'A Child'sHistory of Britain: Life in Roman Britain' By Anita Ganeri (Publisher: Raintree) and 'Explore! Romans' by Jane Bingham (Publisher: Wayland).

* Don't forget...

Make sure you fill in your reading diary at home - you should be reading at least 4 times a week and recording it in your diary. (This is part of your weekly homework.)

Please regularly practise your times tables, ideally 5 mins per day of TT Rockstars or equivalent.
