This will be our last weekly update of the term. We would just like to say what a fabulous term we have had and have thoroughly enjoyed teaching this year group. Highlights have been the Battle of Bosworth (re-enacted), trip to Castle Cornet, Tudor day, our DT project on making soft toys and much much more! Thank-you for all your support. A few reminders for this week:-
Please see the following link for some holiday homework. Home Fun
Seriously, the children have worked really hard and deserve a well-earned rest, just keep reading!
Finally, we would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and look forward to seeing you all in the new year!
Thank you for all your support this term.

There will be a table of lost property outside the year 3 and 4 classrooms after school today. Please have a look through and see if there is anything belonging to your child.
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!
Thank you to those who have already offered to help with our sewing project over the next few weeks. If there is any one else that would like to come in and help with some sewing (or even threading needles, tying knots etc.) here are the times we are likely to need help:

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!
