Mrs Dowding’s class have safely made it to Lihou and are having a fantastic time!
Dear parents and carers,
I am sending out a plea for parent helpers, for the sponsored swim this Friday between 08:45-10:00. We are in desperate need for helpers to count lengths for Mrs Dempster. Please could you let me know if you are able to attend.
Just to confirm, Miss Dyke’s class bus to Lihou is at tomorrow at 2pm and pick up on Wednesday from the car park is at 3.30pm.
Apologies for the confusion!

Year 4 Weekly Update for week beginning 26.06.17
We have had another busy week at school with lots of outdoor numeracy! The children really enjoyed calculating the age of different trees and using sticks to create rectangles, to work out the area and perimeter! Here’s what’s happening next week:-
Lihou: We are off to Lihou!
Mrs Karia’s class – Monday 26th at 1.30 and return 2.30 on Tuesday 27th (Prosperity car park).

Mrs Dowding’s class – Wednesday 28th 3.30pm (Prosperity car park) and return Thursday 29th 4.30pm (Prosperity car park).
Just a gentle reminder, if you still haven’t paid for Lihou please can you pass on that payment to your child’s class teacher as soon as possible.
Numeracy: Looking at co-ordinates on a Lihou grid map.

The countdown to Lihou begins! Start getting your belongings together and watch the weather forecast!
Year 4 Team
As it was too hot today, I postponed outdoor games to tomorrow. Please could you ensure children bring in their PE kits.
A reminder that children should all have a named sunhat with them at school throughout the summer term. It would be great if they could come every day with a water bottle (they are able to refill) and sun cream that has already been applied.
Wow! What an EPIC week we have had! The children have been working hard in the mornings and then have been busy during the afternoons trying out one of their chosen activities. We hope they have all had a wonderful time. We have!
Here’s what’s coming up this week:-
Sports Day: THIS Wednesday (21st) 1:00-3:00pm. Parents very welcome. Children need to come into school in PE kit- house colours please! (Normans – blue, Tudors – yellow, Stuarts – Green and Saxons – red).
The first part of the afternoon will be team games to gain points for their houses, feel free to walk around and cheer on! The second part of the afternoon will be races and relays. Please ensure children have sunscreen on before school, hats, plenty of water and any medication (inhalers need to be full and in date and please dose up with antihistamines for hay fever suffers!)
Numeracy: We will be identifying trees in our environment and working out their ages. Also, we will be looking at coordinates.
Literacy: Using Google Drive, we will be writing our own persuasive text on the 3Rs.
Geography: We will be continuing with our ‘Habitats’ topic.
Please could Lihou permission and medical information forms be handed in as soon as possible and any outstanding payments.
