We hope that you are all well and keeping safe.
This week, the children took part in a KS2 sports day on Tuesday 22nd June. The children had an excellent time, despite the rain! We are very proud of the good spirit and team work demonstrated by each child in Year Four. They really enjoyed all of the activities on offer – basketball, hockey, football skills and more! Tomorrow, we look forward to our whole school carnival, where Year 4 will be representing Australia! Please ensure that your child arrives to school tomorrow wearing their summer outfit, or their costume if they are going to be an Australian celebrity! We look forward to celebrating at the carnival together.
In English, we have continued our learning on Greta Thunberg and Climate Change – in particular, we have been studying the key skills of how to use relative clauses and conjunctions in order to join ideas within and across our sentences. The children have really impressed us with their use of Global Warming key words, facts and statistics in their written work. In Maths, we have been using our metagcognitive and heuristic strategies whilst we interpret and solve money problems. We have recapped on how to use bar models, number lines, expanded column and maths tools as part of using the inverse to answer challenging maths questions. Keep up the great work, everyone!
Please see some photos below of sports day, carnival photos to follow next week!
With best wishes,
Miss Honeywell, Miss Jackson-Nash and Mrs Cairns.
