Another great learning week in Class 4. You all did so well durung Sports Afternoon, in your house teams. The photos on this website are AWESOME, don't forget to check them out!
Amazing writing this week Class 4, describing chase scenes, action scenes and creating suspense when varying the sentence lengths. You were motivated and engaged in your writing all week and the animated film, RUIN, was a fabulous stimulus (Thank you Mr Price for finding this!) We have been so impressed with your writing. It has matured and is definitely of a high standard. We're so proud of you Class 4, let's keep it up.
You have also worked really hard in maths; practising and applying the relevant maths skills to answer different problems, again, let's keep this up.
This week ~ Week beginning 19th June ~ will be a very focused week when we will be looking at how much progress you have made in your reading, writing and maths ~ so stay focused, we know that you have made GREAT progress!

Now that summer has finally arrived, please could all children have water bottles in school for drinks during the day - many thanks.
Class 4 treat time - Wednesday 24th May 2017 - pm. Children may come to school in their own clothes and can bring in a a game/toy. We will be going outside, so sun cream would be recommended - thank you. Congratulations to Class 4 for earning all those treat squares!
Year 6 School Fair - Friday 26th May - children may bring in change to spend at the fair. £2.00 would be a sensible amount.
Homework - Well done to all those children who have handed in their Maths booklets. Remember the deadline is this Friday.
There will be a topic based homework project for the children to complete during the holidays. Information will be sent home tomorrow - it is research based, preparing us for group projects when we return to school.
Week commencing 15th May 2017
IMPORTANT NOTES: Aprons are needed for our clay modelling session on Tuesday 16th May - old school shorts/skirts may be advisable as clay could get onto clothing. We will be making Mayan masks from clay, ready to paint and decorate next week!
MATHLETICS: There will NOT be new mathletics activities set this Tuesday. Children have maths booklets to complete by the final Friday and this should give time to get Mathletics up to date, and to complete the fluency/reasoning tasks.
Week commencing 8th May 2017
Hopefully everyone has enjoyed a sunny Sunday - we certainly need some warmth right now! Don't forget, the sun equals sunhats - please bring in school hats from this Monday.
As usual, Mathletics will be set this Tuesday, linked to our topics of area, perimeter and volume/capacity. All of these concepts will be part of our maths coverage this week. The aim is that all children know the rules for finding area/perimeter and can solve problems involving both. Our English week begins with a SLOW write, where the children are given specific sentence types to include in their writing. The week will end with an independent write linked to Myths/Legends .... we can't wait to find out what the moral of your story will be! Our Art and Topic lessons will be about The Maya - creating Mayan Masks in Art and studying where the Maya civilisation was and its features.
Week commencing 2nd May 2017
Please check your child’s planners because we sent out quite a few letters on Friday 28th April:

Targets ~ Reading/Writing/Maths and explanation letter
