This week in Year 4 13/07/18

This week has simply flown by.  We have had three lots of swimming and the progress the children have made throughout this block of lessons is fantastic. Some children have been introduced to swimming and have been really brave in conquering their fears.  Other children have been improving their swimming skills while others have been learning new strokes such as the corkscrew.  It has been hot walking to QMC but the children cannot wait to get into the water.  A huge thank you to everyone regarding swimming kit.  Nobody has forgotten in the last seven sessions.  The last session will be on Monday.

This week we have worked on our DT project and have designed a product to keep us safe on a bike, scooter or skateboard.  We then made a prototype and the ideas were highly imaginative!  No two were the same!  Finally we evaluated our finished item, thinking about our successes and how we overcame problems.

On Tuesday the children watched the Year 6 production of “Shakespeare Rocks”.  Some of you may have seen it if you have older children.  It was extremely enjoyable and shows the children that there are many talents in our school. Wednesday was great fun too.  Dressing in red and white or football kit to support England in the World Cup,was a really good shared experience for the children.

As we enter the last full week of the year, we hope that the children will look back on their varied experiences in Year 4 favourably.  We would also like to thank all of you for your support over the last year.

Have a lovely weekend,

The Year 4 Teaching Team
