Letter from the Government 

In Term 2, we wrote letters to Boris Johnson explaining to him why we need to do more about deforestation and saving the environment. The children wrote super letters and we were very proud of them. We recently had a response back from Boris Johnson's office saying well done to the children for their fantastic letter. You can read the response here.

Well done Year 4 for having such fantastic Term 3. Although it was an unusual one, you adapted so well to working from home and created some incredible pieces of work. We enjoyed seeing all the creative ways you completed your work and it was great to be able to see you all on a video call each week. 

Our next topic is 'St Vincent'. We will be looking at the spectacular island, reading some Caribbean-based books and reading some stories and poems by the wonderful Benjamin Zephaniah. 

We hope you have a lovely, relaxing half term and we look forward to seeing you soon.  Eat lots of pancakes and stay safe! 

Miss Frost, Ms McCarthy and Mr Mensah. 

 

In class we are helping to settle children back into school life as smoothly and quickly as possible in a variety of ways. The classroom routines have been established to ensure the children know what is going to happen throughout the day and what is expected of the them. We are also taking time to discuss the past 6 months and the experiences children may have had throughout this time, everyone is different! We have been enabling the children's emotional well-being by completing a range of well being and mindfulness activities. There are some really great resources out there so if you would like to complete some these at home too, check out the links below.

Homework and spellings:

At the moment, we will just be giving out spellings for the children to practice at home. These will be given out every Friday and tested the following Friday in class. Children are encouraged to ask for help at home and school if needed.  

In Year 4 the children will be completing national timetables test so we will be sending home times tables for the children to practise too. 

Reading

The Year 4 teachers love reading and we know our student do too! We aim to foster a love of reading, all children read regularly in school: they read as a class and individually in guided reading, once every 3 weeks one-to-one with an adult and  we aim to give the children daily opportunities to read independently. We also share a class story at the end of every day linked to our topic.  Children have opportunities to change books regularly in school. We encourage children to discover books they enjoy so if your child is a free reader, and is enjoying a particular novel at home, they are welcome to bring it to school to read during the day. When returning books from home, they must be put in to the 'returned books' box in each classroom before they get sorted and go back in the book corner.
