Wonderful writing, magnificent maths and more!

We've come to the end of week 3 already! How time is flying by!

This week year 4  produced some wonderful writing based on two scenes from 'The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe'. We were really impressed by their imaginative descriptions and use of interesting vocabulary. Well done year 4, a great start to the term!

Towards the end of the week, we began our new topic based on information texts. The children have had the opportunity to experience and enjoy lots of examples of information texts and next week they will be working towards writing their own. If you would like to help your child prepare for this at home, it would be helpful to have a look at a variety of information texts (information books, newspaper reports etc), discuss the key features of each and the type of language used.

In Maths, Miss Clements class showed fantastic group work skills, working together effectively to help Lewis Hamilton scale his toy car up to ten times its original size. Some excellent measuring skills and group discussions enabled all the children to achieve a successful outcome. Have a look how they got on!

Please remember waterproof coats and snacks for swimming on Monday. We hope you have a good weekend.

The year 4 team.
