Welcome back, we hope you had a good break!
Over the next 7 weeks the children will be tackling the Learning Challenge Curriculum question, ‘What makes the earth angry?’ We will be introducing the topic by creating our very own volcano that will erupt. During this session the children will learn about the different features of a volcano. For further information regarding coverage during this topic please see the attached overview.
Year 4LT will be going swimming every Wednesday morning. 4RW will be going swimming every Thursday morning.
Can you please ensure that your child has their swimming kit in school on the appropriate day? Girls will need a swimming costume, a towel and a swimming hat. Boys will need tight swimming trunks (not shorts), a towel and a swimming hat.
Reading and homework:
As always please ensure that your child is reading at home every night with an adult. Children also have access to Bug Club at home where they will be able to read further books appropriate to their ability. Your child also has access to Times Table Rockstars which is designed to improve their speed of recall of times table facts.
All children will continue to receive maths, handwriting and spelling homework on a weekly basis to be returned to school the following week.
Thank you for your continued support. If you have any questions, please speak to one of us.

On Monday 19th June, Year 3, Year 3/4 and Year 4 took part in a ‘Taste of the Mediterranean’ presented by Junior Chef. The children became chefs for the day and used traditional foods from various Mediterranean countries to make a fruit crunch. They were guided through the experience and learnt about the origins of the fruit and vegetables and explored some of the human features from each country. The children had a fantastic day and they all had a chance to learn some cooking skills and try new foods.
