Week 2 Update.


Year 4 have had another enjoyable week, with lots of wonderful pieces of work produced. In English we are now ready to start writing our own story from another culture; the title of our story will be revealed on Monday! As a result, Mrs Horsfield and I ask that everyone comes in next week with their creative thinking caps ready!

This week also brought our first class swimming lessons, the children represented Great Preston Primary brilliantly- keep up the good work. We also had our first whole-class music lesson which was very exciting. Over this year we will be learning to play the recorder before moving onto the clarinet. It is safe to say we have a very talented class!

After learning about democracy in PSHE, the children all wrote their own manifesto in order to run for Year 4 School Councillor. There were some very interesting pledges made! Results from our vote will be announced on Monday. 



Reminders for next week:

Homework is to be completed and returned for Monday.

We ask that children bring in their reading book and record every day so that they can be checked and children have the opportunity to read with an adult in school. 

PE is on a Tuesday, so please remember kit.

Week 1 Update.


WOW! What an amazing start to the year we have had. Mrs Horsfield and I have thoroughly enjoyed our first week working with Year 4; what a lovely class we have! 

Our highlights of the week have included our big book reveal (The Egyptian Cinderella), which generated lots of excitement among the class. We were also incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity to look at, touch and explore some Egyptian artifacts! We can already tell from the levels of excitement and questions asked that this topic will be incredibly interesting. Finally, we would like to say how proud we are of the children as they are now confident in counting in French... watch this space!


Reminders for next week:

Homework and spellings will be going out on Monday, to be collected in the following Monday.

Reading expectations: We ask that children read each day at home, even just for 10 minutes.

Swimming will be on a Wednesday, so please bring in kit.

PE is on a Tuesday. We ask that children leave their kit in school until then end of half term when it can be taken home and washed.
