Year 4 Weekly Update for week beginning 26.09.16

We’ve had another fantastic week in year 4 and have seen some very impressive Monarch homework already!

For your information here’s what’s happening this week:-

History: A reminder that the Monarch homework is due in on Tuesday 4th October. Our trip to Castle Cornet is on Monday 3rd of October. Buses will leave school at 9:15 and return for lunch. Please remember a waterproof coat and let your class teacher know if you are able to help. Next Thursday, we have a visit from a Tudor Apothecary who will be explaining all about Tudor remedies.

Numeracy: We will be looking at written addition and subtraction. Children will be bringing Rainbow Target letters home today, please practise these number bond targets daily. A times table / division target will be sent home next week.

Literacy: We will be beginning to learn a text of a character description this week using actions.  

School Council: It’s that time of year again!  Our classes have the opportunity on 14th October to elect a new representative.  If your child would like to stand for election then they will need to prepare a short presentation on why they would make a good representative for their class (e.g. poster, power point etc).  These will be presented the week before elections take place.

Sailing and Swimming: Mrs Karia’s class will be sailing next Friday (30.09.16). You will need to arrange for your child to be dropped off at the Model Yacht Pond, by the sailing club, anytime from 8:30 for a 9am start. Please report to Miss Dyke as she will be taking Mrs Karia’s class to the Model Yacht Pond. Please let Mrs Karia know if you are able to help. Children will need to wear clothes that can get wet, a pair of shoes that don’t come off (i.e. no flip flops) that can also get wet, jumpers and coat if it is cold and wet. A plastic bag is a good idea to put the clothes in afterwards. Please don’t forget to pack school uniform!  

Mrs Karia’s will now swim for the next two weeks on Tuesday (27.09.16 and 04.10.16) Miss Dyke’s Class will be swimming on Friday (30.09.16 and 07.09.16).

We hope you all have a lovely weekend!
