Guide Dogs for the Blind Association

Hello everyone,

We hope that you have all been having a good week so far and keeping safe.

On Tuesday 17th November 2020, Year 4 took part in a charity fundraiser day for the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association. The children wore a creative selection of colourful, bright head wear in order to raise awareness for those who suffer from visual impairment. The children had a wonderful day of workshops, group work and videos and are now able to describe how a guide dog is trained at puppy school. Thank you for all of your generous donations, we have now raised over £40 which shall be donated to sponsor a guide dog! Please see the pictures below from our charity fundraiser day…

In English, the children have been learning how to create explanatory sentences using causal and subordinating conjunctions. We have been very impressed by the children’s use of scientific key words from our States of Matter learning, in order to help them explain how to care for a snowman as part of their Health and Safety leaflet. Well done Year Four! Next week, we look forward to planning, creating and drafting our leaflets and putting them on display in the school office.

In Maths, we have been working hard on our learning for multiplication and division. The children have been taught a variety of strategies for solving a complex multi step problem, e.g. number lines, part whole models, bar models, arrays and grid methods.Next week, we look forward to continuing our learning on division strategies before we move towards learning about fractions, numerators and denominators. Please do log on to your My Maths and Sumdog accounts, for plenty of practise learning on this.

Just a few reminders for next week:

  • Parents Evening on Monday 23rd November and Wednesday 25th November (both from 4 – 6.20pm). Your child will bring home their Parents evening target sheets on Friday 20th November 2020. These forms shall form part of our discussions during the 10 minute appointments.
  • Children to wear their PE kits to school on Monday please
  • Spelling home learning and Reading journals due for collection on Thursday 26th November
  • Please remind your child to complete their Reading Passports as soon as possible

We hope you all have a great weekend,

Miss Honeywell, Miss Jackson-Nash and Mrs Cairns.
