    Autumn 1 Week 2

    Well we are have hit year 4 full steam ahead. The children in all of year 4 have been engaging well in all lessons, listening well and working hard. The children are really getting in to our Carrie's War book in English and have created some fabulous noun phrase work. In maths we have been looking at recognising the value of a digit in a 4-digit number which they can all do brilliantly as well as beginning finding 1000 more. We finished maths on a high this week by participating in active maths - fun was had all round. We have been looking further in to our World War 2 topic and have begun to make our very own newspaper articles to announce the beginning of the war. In R.E we were praised by Mr Shaw by how fabulous our newspaper articles on Noah's Ark were. Keep up the good work and have a fantastic weekend.

    Such a fantastic start to the new year. There is a great vibe around the school and within our classrooms which is full of lots of positivity. The children are starting to really knuckle down and show off just how fabulous they are. We have already begun our World War 2 topic and the children are asking wonderful questions and some even going off to do their own research, eager to share all the great facts they are finding, keep it up! Date for your diary is Monday 15th October, which will be Year 4 Parents morning (9:00-9:30am). Have a relaxing weekend. Homework is to read and practice those timestables (timestable rockstars!!).

    What a fantastic morning. Thank you to all the parents for getting fully involved in Active Maths recap of knowledge. I'm sure you will agree with us that the children's maths knowledge has come a long way since September and they have retained all information very well. Hopefully you got lots of steps in too, we absolutely love active maths!

    Art Week

    Art Week was truly tremendous, all the children (and adults) got into the full spirit of art week and produced some excellent costumes for our Art parade. At times it wasn't easy and we were under a quick time schedule but everybody worked really hard and it was nice to witness so many children supporting and lending a hand to their peers. It is safe to say that our cleaners will be grateful it is over due to the everyday glitter carpets and more but it really was good fun. Everybody looked fantastic during the parade and thank you to say many of you that came out to support us! Same again next year?
