Dear Parents and Children,

 

We hope that you have had a good week and that you are all well. We just wanted to let you know that we miss you, children, and we hope you’re enjoying some of the activities we have set for you. Remember to record your house points on your charts! Well done if you have already read and quizzed on a book!  Keep reading and sharing lots of stories together.  If you have finished and quizzed on your library books already, have a look at what is on your home book shelf and read and quiz on one of those instead.  If you are running out of reading material, have a look at the audiobook suggestions on the Year 4 Home Learning Page.  Happy Reading! But most of all we want you to stay safe and have fun.

 

If you click on the 'Dark Clouds' link below you will find a quote from one of Mrs Woodcock’s new favourite books which was introduced to her by one of you! We hope you like it.

 

Look after each other and take each day as it comes.

 

 

Please find attached a document from the Standards and Testing Agency, which outlines what the Multiplication Check will look like for your child and some more information for parents.

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask us.

Please find above some resources to help you discuss and explore in depth the stories and texts you may be sharing at home together.  There's a list of suggested questions and two book review templates.  Of course you could get really creative and create your own book reviews!

Brass Blast 2020

We are really proud of the children for their enthusiasm last night at Brass Blast. They were brilliant and it was wonderful to watch them enjoying themselves, whilst performing to other schools and their audience. Thank you so much for your support in coming to watch the children, it really does make a huge difference to them to be able to showcase their hard work. We hope you are as proud of them as we are! More photos will be added shortly!

 

Presentations about Anglo-Saxon invaders.

Skylarks worked on their presentation skills during topic time this afternoon today to present their understanding of why, where and when the Anglo-Saxons invaded.  Mrs Beddow was very impressed with their creativity and kindness shown to each other whilst collaboratively working together.  Well done all of you. 

    

During the second week of term, children across the school are settling down and beginning to produce some fantastic writing. Mrs Scott is so proud of everyone. Have a listen to a brilliant setting description from Frankie in Chaffinches.
