What a lovely end to the term and our reading week.
Year 4 ordered key pictures from our key story and summarised the main events with detailed, descriptive sentences.
The bookmarks are finished and looking great and we even managed to attach our buttons to felt.
We thoroughly enjoyed our ginger biscuits from Beatrix Potter who was thrilled with all of our hard work this week and how much we've loved working on her books.
Have a lovely half term and we look forward to the next one - remember we can look forward to our DESIGN and TECHNOLOGY day on Thursday when we get back where we can complete our STITCH HEAD monsters.
We enjoyed delving deeper into our Beatrix Potter text today and created wanted posters for devious Sanuel Whiskers and his penickity wife Anna Maria. The children used lots of text evidence in their writing and we used these to create a book to give to Beatrix Potter when she returns. Fantastic learning everyone!
Today, we had a fantastic start to our Reading Week. Your costumes looked amazing. We met Beatrix Potter, found out about our book 'The Tale of Samuel Whiskers' and even stitched our own book marks. Fantastic learning everyone!
We loved having Year 3 come and visit us for our Science Fair today. Thank you so much for all the hard work the children put into their projects at home. We were so impressed with them!
As we have a teacher training day on Friday, we have decided not to give out spellings this week. Next half term we are going to be doing lots of work around multiplication and division so instead, this week and over half term, please can you practise your times tables. We need to know up to 12x12 by the end of Year 4. Thank you for all your support!
Thavk you so much for all the support you have given the children with their amazing homework projects. You have all been very creative. If you haven't sent yours in, the last day is Monday when we will be holding a Science Fair for the Year 3 children. Thank you again for all your support.
Year 4 have been very busy over the last couple of days- writing and performing poetry, using efficient methods and checking skills in maths and creating their own water cycles. What superstars!
Well done to this super learner for achieving her handwriting pen. She always takes pride over her work. Fantastic learning!
Today we put our new persuasive writing skills to the test and wrote letters to try and persuade a local Councillor to keep Fulbert Freakfinder's circus open. We used alliteration, rhetorical questions, facts and figures and fantastic sentence starters to persuade. We are really impressed with all the children's progress. Well done Year 4!
We have awarded our first Handwriting Heroes their new pens. They have shown they can correctly join their letters and present their work neatly. We are really proud of them - well done everyone!
Today the children became particles, to see how they act differently in different states. We are really looking forward to seeing their Science Fair Homework. Remember it is a project about states of matter or the water cycle and can be presented in any way they like.
Mathletics homework has now been set. Remember to try and keep up to date by completing it weekly. Please just let us know if you need any help completing it. Thank you for your support!
We have had a very busy start to the term. The children loved Hoopstarz visiting us and learnt lots of new moves! We also loved making our own radio advertisements for Stitch Head the movie and having our parents come and find out about what we will learn this year. Fantastic work everyone!
The last two days we have been learning about rounding. You can find out more about this skill by watching the video and using the links below.
On Monday 11th September at 3:05 and Wednesday 13th September at 9:00 we will be holding short welcome meetings for our parents. Here you can come and meet the children's class teachers, find out about our routines and ask any questions you might have. We look forward to seeing lots of you there!
We are really looking forward to seeing you all. We know it's going to be an amazing year!
