Please ensure that ALL your children’s clothing is named, including trousers, skirts and shirts. When the children get changed for PE it is hard for them to find the right white shirt if it is not named.
Please also ensure that the children have a named water bottle in school every day.
Hello again from Year 4.
This week the children learnt about the inspirational figure of Muhammad Ali as it was International Men’s Day.
We discovered how he strived to make changes in boxing and for people in America.
The children liked learning about some of his famous quotes “Float like a Butterfly and Sting like a Bee.”
In Literacy, we are reading ‘The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.’
We have written some beautiful descriptive icy settings that will chill you.
In Numeracy we are working hard on developing our division and multiplication methods.
Hello again, this week the children enjoyed the Big Write in Literacy.
Our fantastic stories were based on Tony’s imaginative adventures that took him into space, down crocodile infested waters and through a dangerous jungle filled with evil monkeys.
We had many exciting stories.
In Numeracy we developed our calculation methods for subtracting and adding.
We also used estimating and the inverse methods to deepen our understanding.
We would like to congratulate Swift Class for winning this term’s Spelling Bee.
It was a narrow winning margin and we were delighted to see so many pupils interested in spelling.
The last couple of weeks have been extremely busy with tons of fantastic learning going on.
The children have started a new book called Gregory Cool and we have enjoyed learning about the adventures of a boy on holiday in Tobago.
In Numeracy we are reviewing our calculations for addition problems and the pupils should be using the column method.
We are coming to the end of our Science topic of ‘sound’ so why not ask your child about what they know on pitch and volume.
