NSPCC Number Day

The children have had lots of fun taking part in the NSPCC Number Day today. They have completed mystery maths challenges, played number day activities and had lots of fun with numbers.  Thankyou for supporting this cause.

Christmas Performance of 'Elf'!

Well Done to all year 4 children for their fantastic performance of Elf. We were all very impressed!

Pizza Express

Year 4 went to Pizza Express today to learn all about pizza making and dough. We then ate them for lunch back at school, they were delicious! (4J photos to follow!)

Bird Boat Trip in Poole Harbour

On a very cold and sunny morning, Year 4 went to Poole Harbour to learn all about the birds and wildlife. Our guides were very friendly and knew all about the wildlife we would see in the local environment. Some of us were even lucky enough to see the Poole Harbour seal! In groups we gave a short presentation on jobs, habitats, Poole Harbour birds and cleaning up the plastic from our oceans. 

Ferndown Middle School Music Workshop

Year 4 enjoyed a trip to Ferndown Middle School to take part in a music workshop. We all joined in with some African dancing and drumming before learning a song to perform. It was great fun and a brilliant opportunity to visit the Middle School and some of the teachers.


As part of our learning about Romans and their inventions, we made our own aquaducts and then tested them out!

Squash Taster Session

We walked to Ferndown Leisure Centre to take part in a squash lesson. We all learnt some new skills and really enjoyed the morning.

Welcome to Year 4!

Welcome back, we hope you all had a fantastic summer holiday.

We are looking forward to the year ahead working with your children as they start in their final year at Parley. In order to help them with their transition to Middle School, this year we will be encouraging the children to show self-organisation with their belongings and home learning and would appreciate your support with this. Now the children are in Year 4 they have certain responsibilities and privileges such as supporting the children and staff with a range of tasks. These will be rotated every half-term.

Our topics this year will be:

Autumn – The Romans and Healthy Eating

Spring – The Rainforest and Water

Summer – Inventors & Inventions and The Egyptians

In order to enhance and reinforce the children’s learning we have planned a range of educational visits and experiences including:

Roman Day

Avon Tyrrell Residential

Pizza Express

Bird Watching in Poole Harbour

Sports Events

Transition Events

 We value your partnership with us very much. If you have any questions or queries please feel to speak to us at the end of the day.
