Celebration Assembly

As the end of term draws near, it was lovely to be able to reflect upon some wonderful learning in our Celebration Assembly. Awards were given to those who had shown commitment to their reading journals, read more challenging texts or demonstrated outstanding learning traits. Congratulations to all of this month’s winners…

Christmas Reading Challenge

Dear all,

Over the holidays we want children to relax and spend time with their friends and families. As such, we do not set formal home learning tasks. We do recommend that children continue to read daily, and as such we have created a reading challenge that children may wish to do. The idea is to read in an exciting or unusual place, take a photo and record their favourite quote from the book. The challenge can be accessed through your child’s Firefly login.

Many thanks and enjoy your time together,

The Year 4 Team

End of term arrangements

Please allow me to clarify the following.

For the Christmas parties on Thursday, children should come to school wearing PE kits. They can get changed into party clothes for their class parties. This could include antlers/festive hats and so on, but normal non-uniform clothes are also fine! If children prefer to stay in school uniform, then this is also ok. Please ensure your child has brought in their secret Santa gift prior to this date.

On Friday, kindly note that there will be no after school activities and children can be picked up from the usual place outside the Prep School entrance straight after afternoon registration.

Many thanks for your continued support,

Alan Wright

4AW, 4LP, 4MD: No swimming on Friday

Dear parents of children in 4AW, 4MD and 4LP,

Due to the Principal’s end of term assembly, there will be no specialist lessons on Friday. This means that children will not need to bring their swimming kits!

Kind regards,

Alan Wright

Weekly review

Friday 7th December 2018

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
