I have been teaching at Woodlands Primary School since September 2013. I am passionate about teaching all subject, but I really enjoy teaching Literacy, exploring different narratives and writing imaginatively and creatively. This year, I will be working closely with Mrs Liversey to develop literacy across Woodlands. My weekly highlight is singing assembly with KS2. I love bopping along to tunes from 'The Greatest Showman' with KS2. When not in school, I can usually be found running round after my two children, reading them stories or baking yummy treats in the kitchen.
My motto is 'Shoot for the moon, even if you miss you'll land among the stars!'

I have been teaching at Woodlands Primary school for two years. I am passionate about teaching all subjects but I particularly enjoy teaching mathematics. I love making the lessons active and enjoyable for the children, allowing them to deepen their mathematical understanding whilst having fun. I also love teaching Religious Education to widen children’s understanding of the world and its various cultures and religions.
When I am not in school, I like to keep myself busy with exercise and going on long countryside walks. I also enjoy travelling to new cities and countries, and spending time with my family and friends. I can’t wait to continue our learning journey together next year and learn even more about everyone’s hopes and dreams. It is going to be a very exciting year!

Welcome to Y4!

Summer Term 2

5 Ways to Radiate your Inner Sunshine! - Caroline Rushforth


This half term, we will be looking the narrative, 'Blue John,' by Berlie Doherty from the little gems collection.


In this story, the Queen of Darkness lives deep underground beneath a mountain with her child, Blue John, a boy she made from the blue of the glacier and the hot yellow light of the sun. Blue John is forbidden to leave his mother's side, but the lure of the light above is too strong. When a singing, dancing girl comes to the caves, Blue John must make a choice between darkness and light. A heart-warming story that embraces the beauty and colours of the natural world.

Literacy: Mastery Targets – Summer 2

  • Build a rich and varied vocabulary and an increasing range of sentence structures
  • Variety of verb forms used correctly and consistently including the progressive and the present perfect forms
  • Use paragraphs to organise information and ideas around a theme







In Maths this half term, we will; 

- explore statistics - interpreting different types of charts and explaining what we have found out from them, and introducing line graphs. 

- continue to build on our knowledge of properties of shape by identifying angles, comparing and ordering angles, exploring lines of symmetry and designing a symmetric figure. 



In this unit of work, we will build on our prior knowledge of physical geography from our previous study of volcanoes in Year 3.  At the end of the unit, our children will be able to tell you where earthquakes and tsunamis soccur, explain why earthquakes, tsunamis and tidal waves happen, provide instructions of how to keep safe during an earthquake and investigate and compare strength of earthquakes.
