Well, I cannot believe that another half term has flown by…only one left until their Year 5 journey begins!
Yet again, I have been so proud with how focused and resilient the class have been, and the progress EVERY child has made, since September, is certainly noticeable!
With just one half term left together, I am excited to see the end results!!
In Maths, we have been using mental strategies for multiplication. It is important to realise that written methods are not always necessary, and when we can notice the mental strategies we can use, it makes it much easier for us!
This week we combined our English and History together as we have been Egyptian farmers, writing diary recounts of our farming life. We had to remember all the features of a diary recount, whilst included all our historic understanding of farming life in Ancient Egypt.
In Science, we made and described a variety of food chains. Ask us what a producer, consumer, predator and prey are!!
I HAVE NOT SET ANY BOOK HOMEWORK OVER HALF TERM. HOWEVER, PLEASE ENSURE WE KEEP UP WITH OUR HOME READING AND TIMES TABLES PRACTICE.
This week’s Golden Award went to Thomas for his focus in class this week.
This week’s Writing Award went to Tom for his well written diary recount.
As always, thank you to all of you for your continued support. This year has been an absolute delight so far and I am so pleased to see how far all your children have come, both academically and personally. Please enjoy your half term and I cannot wait for our return where we can continue on our learning journey and make sure we have reached our FULL potential before continuing that journey into year 5!
