Mountfields Lodge School


Welcome to Sapphire!


Sapphire is a Year 4 class based in the mobile classroom with classes Garnet, Emerald and Onyx.

We have lots of fun learning new things together with our teacher, Miss Redgate and this page is designed to keep you up to date with what we are learning.

Parents are always very welcome to phone or come and have a chat with Miss Redgate if there are any concerns or questions.


A few reminders:

We have Outdoor P.E every Friday and on Tuesdays we have P.E. indoors. Miss Redgate is particularly fond of PE and all children are actively encouraged to participate. 

Our homework is always issued on a Thursday and a letter for parents will always be included to explain the tasks. Spellings are issued every other week and we have a spelling test every two weeks on a Friday.

Sapphires are known for their sparkle and that is what we try to encourage in our class!


We aim to create a supportive environment in Sapphire Class where we learn to work together to the best of our ability. You are welcome to pop in to speak to me if you have any concerns or just have a question you’d like to ask.







Raiders or Traders


We are continuing our investigations into historical settlers in Britain and how this has impacted on people's way of life.  We will be acting as Anglo-Saxon spies to gather more information about these new settlers.



We are going to be covering a lot of different writing over this half term linked with our grammar, science and EOW work.  We will be looking at the structure and vocabulary used in Explanations.



In music we had been looking at raps and beats. Below are raps we wrote and performed ourselves.
