First of all, we would like to welcome you all to year 4! We have had an enjoyable few days back after the summer break and we hope that the children are beginning to feel settled into their new classes.
This week we kick-started our Narnia topic. It was great to hear that many of you had read 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' over the summer and consequently the children were engaged, enthused and ready to go, many of them experts on the plot and the main characters already. Thank you for your support!
Next week, we will be continuing with the story. If you would like to help your children prepare at home, watching the film version of 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' would be really helpful in giving an overview of the plot. Later in the week, we will also be discussing the personalities and feelings of the main characters and will be writing a scene from the perspective of Edmund. It may be helpful if you are able to discuss how Edmund feels throughout the story, so that the children have lots of ideas to share with the rest of the class.
Next week we will be hosting our ‘Meet the Teacher’ presentation after school on Monday. Please come along and hopefully we will be able to answer any questions you may have!
In advance of this, we would also like to remind you of the importance of children having healthy snacks at morning break time as it helps them to maintain their focus until lunch. This is especially important on swimming days. Please don’t forget swimming begins this Monday! Thank you to those parents who have volunteered to walk to Aldwickbury with us.
We wish you a lovely weekend.
The year 4 team.
