This week in Year 4 12/01/18

May we wish everyone a Happy New Year and say a huge thank you for the cards and presents given to us for Christmas.  They were very much appreciated by the whole team.

This week we have started our new topic “There She Blows” and the children have been very excited to find out all about volcanoes and tectonic plates.  They are becoming quite experts at explaining why volcanoes occur and how they erupt so please ask them.  In Maths we have revisited addition and subtraction, using various methods leading to the more formal column addition and subtraction.  Next week we will be applying our skills to solving multi step word problems.

PE days remain the same – Thursday and Friday.  As one session is indoor (gym), children must wear shorts but can wear track suit bottoms for orienteering outside as the weather is still changeable.

Today we have been treated to a hugely enjoyable pantomime.  We watched “Sleeping Beauty” and joined in with the songs, comedy routines and cheering.  We were even entertained by Miss Dunn and Mrs Barter joining in a dance routine – do ask your children to tell you all about it!

Have a lovely weekend,

Year 4 Teaching Team
