Weekly Update 16.11.2018

This week we have started to learn the songs for our Christmas play.

On Tuesday the children enjoyed swimming in their clothes! Everybody will need their shorts and t-shirts (leggings) for next week. Advance notice: on the afternoon of Tuesday 4th December we will be having a swimming gala which you will be invited to! More details will be given nearer the time but the timings are likely to be a 1.30 start and a 2.45 finish.

On Monday and Tuesday we enjoyed wearing odd socks and working with children from other year groups on various activities including drama, videos, creating comic-strips, posters, debates and music. These were all based around the theme of anti-bullying week.

In DT the children designed Roman mosaics and in French this week we have begun a new unit of work on telling the time.

The children and staff have enjoyed a fantastic Fit Friday and Children In Need day today! Thank you to all parents who supported this with sporty and spotty outfits and donations.

Next Thursday is our Roman day which we are all eagerly anticipating! Costumes can be as simple as a pillowcase with a hole in it for a simple tunic. Please remember no weapons.

Unfortunately, we still have many parents who have not paid their £5 towards the cost of the event. Please send contributions via the School Gateway by visiting www.schoolgateway.com.

Sadly, the reality is we simply do not have the budget to fund such special occasions, and if we don’t get enough contributions we have to take the money out of our Year 4 supplies budget. This means less resources are available for your children to use. We kindly ask that you please do help us to continue to offer and fund these invaluable and enriching activities for your children.

This week’s maths homework for all children is to measure and calculate the perimeter of their bedroom, following on from work on perimeter in the classroom. They need to draw their room outline with a ruler, add the measurements of each wall and calculate the perimeter. If paper is needed please ask the teacher.

Finally, a reminder that donations for our Christmas hamper should be sent in by Wednesday 21st November please, our class colours are black & gold, and sign-up sheets are in our lobby for help in running our stalls at the Christmas Fair. Your support is much appreciated.

Have a good weekend.
