Helpers!

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!

Many thanks

Weekly Update – week beginning 11.12.17

 

Year 4 Weekly Update for week beginning 11/12/17

The children have loved having a go at some sewing this week and have been working hard making their own toy and showing some great perseverance-threading a needle isn’t as easy as it looks! Here’s what’s coming up this week:-

Numeracy: We will be working on Christmas themed problem solving.

The children have been christmas data collecting this week-please see their graphs in their Google Drive folders. If they wish to, they can carry out more surveys at home this weekend and present in a graph-instructions in Google Drive. or click on the link https://docs.google.com/document/d/14Dpfzl-51hSmaTILBZR11z4N4TVCdVTQwNfPnWPvPCY/edit?usp=sharing

DT: We are still very keen to have any willing volunteers to help thread needles and untangle sewing! Please let the class teacher know if you can help at all.  See previous blog for sewing times.

Lower Junior Christmas party: Is on Friday (see previous blog post).

Year 5 Christmas Service: We will be watching the Year 5 Christmas service in the church on Thursday 14th December at 1.30.  If there are any parents who would be willing to walk to and from the church with us, we would be very grateful!  Please let your class teacher know.

End of term: Please can we remind you that school finishes at 1pm on Tuesday 19th December. The children will not need a packed lunch that day but can bring extra snacks for playtime. The children can also wear a christmas jumper that day for a donation of 50p which will go to LEPRA.

We hope have a lovely weekend and thank you for your continued support.

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!

Many thanks.

This week is another busy week:

Monday 27th November is our Tudor day.  Children should come to school in their Tudor costumes for the day.  We look forward to seeing lots of you at 2pm in the school hall, any last minute helpers for the morning activities would be greatly appreciated.

Numeracy: Children will be taking part in some maths assessments in the first part of the week and continuing with our work on fractions. Please find a link to an interactive fraction wall to help the children practice.

http://www.visnos.com/demos/fraction-wall

Literacy: We will be focusing on setting descriptions based in the Tudor times.  Any reading of fictional stories based in the Tudor times would support this unit.

Science:  We will be starting an exciting new unit.  More details will follow next week.

DT: Our DT project will begin soon and we will be making soft toys. In the last couple of weeks of the term we will be busy sewing and if there are any parents/grandparents out there willing to give us a hand it would be much appreciated. Please let the class teacher know if you can help at all during the afternoons.

Details of the Christmas Party will be sent home soon. Please keep an eye out for the letter. Can we please also take this opportunity to remind you about the Christmas Fayre next week on Thursday 7th December 2-4pm.

Many thanks,

Weekly Update for the week beginning 20th November

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.

Art: Having been inspired by our real live work of art and we will be making our own Tudor portraits, again if anyone is able to come in and help for these, please let us know.

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.
