What an excellent first week back! The children have got straight back into their learning and are already working really hard. We have been looking at time in maths and this is a tricky subject that requires lots of practice so anytime you can work on this with your children would make a huge difference. We have also started our journey into the story of 'How to Train Your Dragon' and the children have created some excellent dragons of their own.
Homework grids have now been handed out for this half term and it will be checked on a Thursday in Koala class and a Friday in Lemurs. Please ensure that your child is completing the basics each week and that they are writing any reading they have done in their diaries, even if this is independent.

Happy New Year!!
Welcome back to Spring 1! We hope you have all had a fantastic break and have come back to school excited to learn.
This half term we have the joy of learning all about the Vikings and studying the book 'How to Train Your Dragon' by Cressida Cowell. You will find below the mind map for everything we will be covering this half term as well as the half term homework grid.
We are very lucky to have some additional PE sessions this half term. Starting this week (7.1.19) we have a provider coming in to run gymnastic sessions on a Thursday morning. From next week (14.1.19), Year 4 will be participating in the Wednesday sports afternoons initially trying out indoor athletic events and orienteering. From this, some children will be selected to represent the school in a competition later in the year. It doesn't stop there! We also have an outside provider coming in to run some health and fitness sessions on a Friday afternoon which will run until Easter. Some of these will be practical and some will be theory based. As a result of this, it is really important that PE kits are in school all week please to avoid anyone missing out.
In addition to this exciting half term of PE and Vikings, some groups of children will be accessing forest schools this half term on a Wednesday with Mrs Mitchell. Your child will already know if this includes them and they just need to remember to bring in their outdoor clothes (it may get muddy so please don't wear anything that you wouldn't want to spoil) and wellies. There are spare wellies at school if you don't have any.
As always, any questions you may have please don't hesitate to ask.

It must be Christmas...In music, Year 4 are learning to play the glockenspiel introduction for Mariah Carey's 'All I want for Christmas is you'! We are also learning to sing the song, ready for our KS2 Christmas Celebration. Get those hairbrushes and get practising!
Wow! What an amazing week we had honouring the World War One Centenary. The children participated in a variety of different activities from learning about the children who supported in the war effort to being attacked by enemy fire in the trenches! This culminated in an amazing assembly where all of the children shared their work from all classes, shared a poem, listened to Mrs Barrs play the Last Post and respected the fallen with a minutes silence.
