The children have been working hard over the past couple of weeks despite the very hot weather! We have been very busy across the curriculum and the children have produced some fantastic pieces of work, showing off all that they have learnt in Year 4.

In English we have been debating whether children should wear school uniforms or not, both classes have written excellent discussion texts with reasons for and against the argument. The children thought very carefully and came up with some great advantages and disadvantages including: comfort, cost and being able to express their individuality. They certainly put forward a very persuasive argument!
During Science lessons, children have been very passionate about the effects humans can have on other living things and their habitats. As well as using their endangered animal research to create some excellent PowerPoints and posters, they have researched about the effects plastic has on our oceans. In groups the children rehearsed, directed and produced some brilliant videos explaining the impact and what we can do to help.

Reminder for sports day (Tuesday 3rd July):
The children should come to school dressed in their PE Kits please and wearing a T-shirt in their house colour. 
They must all have a sun hat to wear and please apply sun cream in the morning- it is going to be a hot day!
Please note house colours have now changed:

Jupiter – Green
Saturn – Red
Mars – Yellow
Neptune – Blue

Have a lovely weekend and enjoy the sunshine!

It has continued to be a busy half term for Year 4 but we are particularly proud with how the children have approached and coped with their end of term assessment tests and dare I say even perhaps enjoyed the opportunity to show off all the knowledge and skills they have gained this year.

As well as assessments, the children have also had chance to complete some fun science lessons and have been on 'An invertebrate hunt' and making classification keys with liquorice allsorts!

Just a reminder that children will need their 'memory box' bits for Monday in Ash class. (please see homework book)

Have a lovely weekend
