6/1/2020 Spring Term 1

Just a quick 'hello' and welcome back to school! We  hope that you have all had a wonderful Christmas break and that you're well-rested and raring to go for the new term!

 

We will be exploring lots of new and exciting topics this half term, including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in English which takes us to Cadbury World to get a first hand experience of what happens in Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory! A letter will be sent home with your child in the near-future to confirm details of this.

 

Also this term we welcome Mrs Ainsworth into Year 4 who will be working with us for the rest of the academic year.

 

We will continue to update our class page every Friday, so any notices or details will be posted then.

 

Thanks again for your continued support,

 

Miss Elliott and Mrs Ainsworth

 

 

 

 

Star of the Week!
 

Every week Mrs Hawkins and I will be nominating one pupil, who we think has worked super hard, to receive 'Star of the Week'. We will announce it on our class page every Friday, so be sure to check in to see who is a star each week!

Our STAR OF THE WEEK this week is Maisie! Maisie has been working hard all week to move up a level in CLIC and the hard work paid off! Not only this, but she has finally become a well-deserving member of the Big 10 Club. 

 

Well done Maisie, keep up the good work. We hope to see you in Big 10 Club next week too!

Symphony Hall Trip - Music for Youth

2020

This week, we welcomed Christ into our classroom for the new year. Father Gary asked us to use epiphany chalk to write 20+C+M+B+20 above our doors as a way of blessing our classroom.

 

We wish everyone to be blessed by Christ when they enter Year 4, as we feel blessed ourselves.

 

Happy New Year,

 

Love Year 4.

Our Class Wish

As we embark on a new school year and new opportunities in Year 4, we will...

 'be curious in our learning and never give up.'

This is our class wish for this new academic year. We will work exceptionally hard to achieve this wish everyday, by trying new things and encouraging each other.

 

Knowledge Organisers and Homework

 

Knowledge Organiser Folders

Today, the children were sent home with their Knowledge Orangiser folders. The folders hold their home learning tasks and their subject organisers. These are to be brought into school everyday and taken home every night. As you are aware, the five pound deposit is to ensure that the children look after their folders and bring them in everyday as they will support their lessons. Any children who have not paid their deposit, will be provided with photocopies of the home learning tasks and subject organisers. 

 

Thank you for your continued support,

Miss Elliott and Mrs Hawkins

 

Home Learning Tasks

Each child will have a copy of the 'Home Learning Tasks Grid', either in their knowledge organiser folder or in their homework books. This has a range of tasks to be done at home:

Daily Tasks - One to be done each day and signed by parent/carer in homework diary.

Enrichment Tasks - To be done at leisure and signed by parent/carer in homework diary. 

Weekly Tasks - To be set by teacher every Thursday and completed in homework books by following Monday.

Extension Tasks - To be done at leisure by the end of term (Christmas)

 

School Essentials 

In order for your child to be able to fully access the curriculum and to enable us to read with them, could you please ensure that your child has the following with them each day:

 

  • Book bag
  • Reading book and diary
  • Pencil case with essential items
  • Knowledge Organiser Folder

 

Please be reminded that a £5 deposit is required for the pencil case and Knowledge Organiser folder and this should be paid into the office. Thank you.
