Encouraging Growth

Welcome to Lowton Junior and Infant School, encouraging growth at every stage of your child’s development.

Friday 28th April

Welcome back everyone!

We have had a very busy week this week in Y4!

In English, we started to learn how to write detailed descriptions of a character. We used Grandmamma from Roald Dahl’s ‘The Witches’. The children did very well and wrote some beautiful descriptions.

Zach wrote:

‘As Luke walked in to his Grandmamma’s living room, she was sat by the fire. She was a majestic old woman with a kind heart, although she was as stubborn as a mule. She sat in her giant armchair covering every inch of it, not even a mouse could fit in beside her. Grandmamma was the only woman that Luke knew who smoked cigars. She was definitely a risk taker, because she knew that smoking was against her doctor’s orders…’

In Maths, we have been learning how to convert measures. It has been quite challenging to say the least, but Miss Myers is very proud of each and every one of the children for their determination and perseverance. At the start of the week, we focused on converting length (mm, cm, m and km). Not only did the children have to remember how many mm are in a cm etc, they then had to use multiplication and division to convert the measurement! Why not ask them to how to convert 600cm into m?

Remember the 3 steps everyone:

  • Decide what number you are multiplying or dividing by
  • Is it a multiplication or division?
  • Work it out using your place

We finished the week attempting to convert time. Again, quite a lot of the children struggled to change 12hr into 24hr but they have become a lot more confident by the end of the week. Any support at home with this would be greatly appreciated!

We ended the week with a celebration. This week has been important, as it has been ‘Timestables Week’. All the children have had the opportunity to attempt to get their next band, even those who have achieved them all (a special gold award was created). Miss Myers is extremely proud of those children who have practised both in school and at home this week and achieved a band. Thank you for your support with this.

Have a lovely bank holiday weekend everyone, see you on Tuesday.

Love from Miss Myers, Miss Hughes and Y4 x

Friday 23rd December

We've made it! We’ve had a very busy week, mainly doing Christmas activities. 

The children sang ‘The 12 Days of Christmas’ at the Grandparents’ Afternoon Tea in the hall, and they were very professional! Well done! The audience loved it. This was followed by watching ‘Oliver!’ on DVD, as we have been using an extract from the story, in our Guided Reading sessions.

Father Christmas took time out of his busy schedule to come and visit all the children on Wednesday, at the PTFA Christmas Party. How exciting! He actually knew that Calum wanted more dinosaurs to add to his (already large) collection!

On Tuesday everyone had their Christmas dinner, prepared by our wonderful school cook! It really got us all in the festive mood. Many of the children even managed to eat their sprouts, Miss Myers on the other hand….

We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas, which is healthy and fun! All our best wishes for an amazing New Year. We look forward to seeing you bright and refreshed in January, ready for our new Spring term.

Lots of love from

Miss Myers, Mrs Owen and all of Y4 children Xx
