Stanhope Primary School


Class 4OG

Hello and welcome to 4OG


Here you will find useful documents, key dates for the class diary and photos of what we have been learning in 4OG!


Our topic for the first half term is 'Robots'. We will be learning about circuits and using our design skills to 'build' a robot of our own. We also have a focus on religious education this half term, looking at the main religions and learning about signs and symbols. We try to link our Maths and English to the topic work and to the interests of the children as much as we can to keep things fun.


Please keep checking our page as we will keep updating with things you need to know and posting photos of our lovely work. As always, if you have any questions or would like to pop in for a chat or a look around our classroom, please feel free to come in after school. 


In 4OG, we have not had many entries for creative homework this half

term, so we have come up with a list of ideas to get you started.

Our next topic is The Rotten Romans.

You can of course use your own idea if you have one!

Ideas for Romans Creative Homework:

Ÿ A sword and shield

Ÿ Information about the Colosseum

Ÿ Write a poem about the Rotten Romans

Ÿ A PowerPoint presentation

Ÿ Make your own Horrible Histories episode

Ÿ Write a chapter for a Horrible Histories book

Ÿ Dress up in a costume

Ÿ Find out about and make a Roman recipe

Ÿ Mosaic

School Library

School Library


We have started using the school library to choose books to read. We have talked about choosing books we are interested in that are not too hard but also not too easy! Over the year, we will become more and more independent, visiting the library when we need to and writing down which books we have borrowed.

Don't forget - next week is our visit to Wollaton Avenue library (Tuesday 16th). If any parents or carers would like to join us, please let us know before Tuesday.

Class Calendar


Monday -        The children vote for their Golden Time activity on a Monday.

                        Our next visit is on October 16th 2018.

                        We return marked homework on a Friday (if it was handed in on time).

Thank you to everyone who shared in our Remembrance Day Learning - beautiful poppies created and displayed around school to help us think about this special day.
