Year 4

We have had another fun week year 4!

In Literacy we completed writing our wonderful 'Penguin in Peril' stories. We then edited them and have started re-drafting them in order to practice our handwriting skills and prepare our stories for display.  Over the course of the next two weeks our Literacy lessons will involve completing these stories and then applying our skills to planning and writing versions of the story with our own character and plot twists! 

In maths we have continued to focus on converting measures this week and then have moved on to estimating and rounding.  Next week we move on to using inverse operations to help us check addition and subtraction  calculations, before starting to look at angles.   

Many thanks for the materials which you have supplied for the children to build their Roman chariots.  The chariots are taking shape and the children have been having lots of fun building them this week.  Will be spending more time on these amazing creations next week!  

We have also been busy rehearsing for the production, which is now coming around very quickly! We will be continuing to rehearse over the next week or so, in time for the performances on Tuesday 27th and Wednesday 28th March.  Please could we ask that children continue to practise their lines as much as they can at home as this will really support us in rehearsals at school. We would also like children to bring in their costumes as soon as they can if they haven't already. Also, as all children have been allocated a role, it would be really helpful if you could let us know (via your child's link book) if they are unable to attend either of the performances.  Thank you.  

Many thanks for the many positive comments we received at parent consultation meetings this week.  It was great to be able to share your children's achievements with you.  

Finally, a reminder that (weather permitting!) our Parents Day and World Book Day is next Friday 23rd March.  We look forward to seeing you then! 

As always, many thanks for your continued support.
