As the Christmas holidays fast approach there has been no lapse in the effort or enthusiasm from the children at school this week; a highlight of which was our trips to the Sikh Gurdwara. Our warmest thanks go to all of the parents that gave up their time to show us around.

Our focused work still continues however classes are having slightly more flexible timetables as we complete some large projects and pieces of work ahead of the end of term. It has been really enjoyable to allow children extended time on projects and to see them able to really focus for extended periods to achieve a really high level of outcome.  In Literacy, we are adding final flourishes to our leaflets and those that have been completed and published are on their way to Miss Brown.  In Numeracy, we are continuing our work on time looking at how we can apply our knowledge to word problems.  We will consolidate this term’s work with some Christmas themed Maths problems next week.

In Humanities, we are now finalising scripting, filming and editing our weather reports using the iPads and green screen technology. We can’t wait to see the finished products. In Art, the batiks are nearly complete and look fantastic, we are feeling incredibly proud of our work. Now that we have applied the hot wax and paint we will iron them to finish and add some final detail before displaying them in the Year 4 corridor.  In Computing we are finishing our work with Scratch; coding Rangoli patterns. As Scientists we have created an algorithmic version of a classification key which we are now inserting hyperlinks into before sharing them with the Year 3 children.

Wishing you all a very happy weekend ahead of the final week of term.

Many Thanks,

     The Year 4 Team
