23rd February update
Reading Challenge - the numbers of Reading Record books in on a Monday has dipped this week. To help encourage this and raise the importance of reading in the children's eyes we are implementing an system whereby if children have not read at least 3 times or have forgotten to bring their book in on a Monday they will be encouraged to read to an adult during assembly, break or lunch. This will start after half term.
New Homework incentive
In order to celebrate and reward children for their great efforts in their homework, we will be introducing a new homework incentive for all Year 4 pupils starting once the Ongoing Projects are in (Friday 13th March). We will award a certificate (1 per class) for a piece of homework that shows for example the best effort, the most improved effort, great presentation etc. We look forward to celebrating the children's homework with you.
We would also like to invite you to come and join in with our celebrations of the Ongoing projects by visiting both Hawks and Ospreys classrooms on 20th March to see all the fantastic and creative work completed by the children.
Design and Technology Spring 2nd half term
The children will be creating Polar region based Pop-Up books. This involves a number of different skills. The children will need to consider the purpose and audience of their book before the design process and then learn how to join materials to create a desired effect.
Our Art focus this term
The painting below by Carl Buell is the stimulus for our art work and creative writing this term. Both classes are working on group art work based on the painting and we are hoping to publish books with stories from all the children based on this painting.
Information regarding the homework task is posted in the homework section of the yr4 webpage - access through the homework link above.
Both Mrs Sheen and Mrs Knight will be checking Reading Records each week. Please ensure you send your child's Reading Record in with them on a Monday morning.
Thank you for your continued support
