This half term we have a new class reader- the wonderful Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling. We will be using this as a basis for our learning in English, exploring characters, settings and time adverbials. In Maths we are focusing on perimeter and multiplication and division. We can't wait to see who will reign supreme in our times table-athon! In Science, we will be finding out all about the animal kingdom and how they digest food. We will also be starting our very exciting Polar Explorers work. And in our topic work we will be finding out all about rivers. We can't wait to get started!
We hope you all enjoyed the party and that you have an amazing time over Christmas 🎄🎄🎄
We look forward to seeing you all in 2019 🌟🌟🌟
In our French we have been learning how to say dates and about celebrations in France. Bien fait tout le monde!
During reading week we entered the Premier League Stars writing competition and wrote poems all about diversity. Today we received a prize of 12 poetry books for entering the competition! We find out in March if we have any winners. The competition is being judged by Olly Murs and Rio Ferdinand! Well done Year 4!
Today we were lucky enough to be visited by one of our school governors. We worked with her on a Money Sense workshop all about planning, budgeting and costing a party. The children learnt how decisions affect the costs and what they can afford. Excellent work everyone!
