Year four will be going down the church tomorrow afternoon at 1.20 to watch the year 5 Christmas performance. If any parents are able to join us, please let your class teacher know.
We also have our Christmas party on Friday and would love if any parents/carers could help set out the food for our lunch during the morning. Again, let your class teacher know if you are able to spare an hour or two!

Year 4 Weekly Update for week beginning 4/12/17
The children enjoyed a fantastic Tudor day on Monday! We hope you enjoyed the entertainment and refreshments in the afternoon. Many thanks to all our helpers for the day, without you it wouldn’t have been possible. Here’s what’s coming this week:-
Numeracy: We will continuing to work on times tables and then moving onto data handling.
Literacy: We will be writing our own historical setting descriptions.
DT: Welcome to year 4 ‘The Apprentice!’ Please see our homework link for information. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1aj_ED27Qainp3SXidEDooGGPz4nUAjyZQXPjQD_obTI/edit?usp=sharing
If you have any unwanted teddy bears, please bring them in as we will be deconstructing toys and looking at how they are put together and made. This is an important part of the DT process. It would be an idea to pre-warn the children that this will be happening!
We are very keen to have any willing volunteers to help thread needles and untangle sewing over the next few weeks! Please let the class teacher know if you can help at all. We are planning to do these lessons on a Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons.
Random act of kindness class advent calendar: Each day a child in the class opens an advent envelope which contains a random act of kindness for all the children to have a go at. These will continue over the weekend. We hope you enjoy the activities suggested. This weekend the children have been asked to:
Write a Christmas card to an elderly person (you could bring them in and we could send them to Le Platon) and donate a toy to the Christmas Fayre.
PTA Christmas fayre: This will take place on Thursday 7th December, children can be collected from their classrooms at 2.15 to have a look around. They must be accompanied by an adult. Why not bring in donations, bake a cake or bring something for the bottle stall!
Enjoy your weekend!

Year 4 Weekly Update for week beginning 20.11.17
Wow! What a week! We were extremely lucky to have an art expert who came to show us a Tudor portrait today.
We all learnt a lot about the painting and are hoping to put this knowledge into our own Tudor portraits next week.
We also started to look at a very famous Tudor portrait of Elizabeth I called the Armada Portrait.

PE: Please could children bring in OUTDOOR PE KIT on any PE day as the hall is now out of use for Nativity rehearsals.

Tudor day: We are looking forward to seeing you all on Tudor Day on Monday 27th November. We can’t wait to see the children in their Tudor costumes. Please let us know if you are unable to get hold of one.
Have a good weekend and thank you for you continued support.

This week in numeracy we have been looking at written methods for division. If your child would like to carry on practising at home, they can have a go at some of the sums on this worksheet.
