Anti Bullying Week 2017
This year’s Anti Bullying Week theme was – “All Different, All Equal”. The slides on the document can be shared with your child about the feelings they have around bullying. Bullying is a serious issue in schools and one we work hard to teach the children about in terms of the impact such behaviour can have. It is never something any one should experience but by teaching the children about the ways it can be stopped and dealt with it should help them to feel confident to speak about it. We hope that you find the information useful.
Please find the long term plans for the Autumn term 2017 by clicking on the link below. You will also find the slides that were used at the Teacher / Parent meeting. We hope that you will find them of great use.
Please note: Long range plans are general and subject to changes as the calendar and children’s needs dictate.
Throughout the academic year 2017 -18 homework will be set for each year group via a range of different activities every half term. Children are expected to complete one activity per week and to hand it in on Thursdays. They should complete each activity once. It is our hope that by setting homework in this way, it offers families a more flexible approach and parents more of an opportunity of supporting their children’s learning. Activity grids will be put on the school web site under Year Group pages. Please click on the documents below for further details.
We will be starting our D and T topic on money containers. Please look at two purses or wallets that you have at home and evaluate them using the sheet attached
English – Complete your letter to a penpal in neat. Try to make your letter as interesting and as informative as possible (See instructions from Last week)
Maths- continue to revise your times tables using the Hit the button game
Thank you to all parents who attended the Welcome meeting on Tuesday 13th September. For those of you who were unable to attend please click on the link below which was used at the meeting. We look forward to working with you this year.
The first edition of the Year 4 Newsletter was born from an idea that was shared with me by Oscar in Year 4 shortly after the Christmas break. His band of reporters and writers came every Monday lunchtime to the ICT suite through the Spring Term after they had consumed a hearty lunch, and were prepared to write and edit their pieces until they were completely satsified. What you see is the culmination of their work and the inspiration of a group of Year 4 children who enjoy writing. Congratulations children. The second edition is in the process of being written and will be published towards the end of this half term. Watch this space!
Welcome to Year 4
