We would all like to say a big thank you to Mrs. Woolhead for coming in to our classes last Friday and teaching us about the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
We all learnt lots about how we digest food and the healthy and unhealthy things that are in different foods, even the teachers had some of their questions answered!
At the end of her talk Mrs. Woolhead set us a special task- to come up with a leaflet to tell people about the need to live healthily, that will be displayed in her doctors’ surgery. Now we are looking to find out even more information about healthy living so that we can share this knowledge with other people.
It’s been so great to see lots of children already bringing in presentations, models and posters of what they have found out so far! We have loved sharing with the class and other teachers! Keep it up year 4!
During our second week we have settled in to life back at school. Everyone has responded well to new challenges and have really used their 5C’s to do their best dring the week. During Literacy we were able to enter the jungle to help our setting descriptions (it was really the nature trail shhh!) We have been really impressed by everyone’s enthusiasm for maths and this has let them try lots of new challenges.
Very excitingly we have also had our first music lesson in which we are learning about African instruments, especially the Djembe:
There will be a year 4 performance at the end of the term that all family and friends are welcome to attend. A letter will be sent out nearer the time containing the dates for this.
New tasks have been set for both My maths and Abacus so go and give them a try! Well done to all of you that have already tried these, it is good to hear that people are really enjoying themselves!
Thank you to those of you who were able to come to our year 4 welcome meeting last night. We hope that you found it informative and that it has answered any questions that you may have had about year 4.
For those of you who were unable to attend, we have sent home a welcome pack that includes the information we handed out last night:
- Information leaflet
- Anti – bullying map
- Maths methods used in year 4.
Below you can see our home learning pyramid for this topic:
Circle of Life
This is designed to give you and your child some ideas about how to start their home learning and is stuck in the front of their home learning books.
Your children will now have all been given their log-ins for My Maths and Bug Club too. Please check them out and have fun exploring the different activities!
Also, don’t forget to keep checking the class blog for news and information about what is going on in class!
