Where has the year gone to?
I can’t believe this is the last half term with my wonderful Year 3 and 4 class!
The children have amazed me with their knowledge and enthusiasm as we have become Roman experts over the last four weeks. We have gone into battle in our ‘tortoise’ formation. We have learned about the power and spread of the Roman Empire and the legacies they have left for us today. I can strongly recommend making a Roman road edible style, with chocolate cake, biscuits and angel delight, it was yummy!
We will be completing our Roman topic on Wednesday 12th June with our special Roman Day. I look forward to seeing the children in their costumes: striking soldiers, terrific togas, gorgeous goddesses and brilliant Boudiccas, to name but a few!!!
Please look at all our photographs of our topic that I have added on this page.
I am again very proud of all their achievements and the fantastic progress they have all made this half term.
The first week back after the holidays will be a whole school music focus, where we have 'Pop-UK' in school. They will spend time with each class and then we will have the opportunity to record our songs and perform for you on Thursday 13th June. Please see the letter sent out before the half term holiday for more information.
Year 4s we will also start practising for the Government Pilot of Multiplication Tables test, ready for testing all Year 4 pupils the week commencing Monday 24th June. Again, please see the letter sent out before the half term holiday for more information.
We will be starting our final topic at the end of the second week back called:
We will be learning all about different types of forces and about magnets. The children will need to be resilient and reciprocal as there will be plenty of challenges for them to try and create a ‘Fantastic Force Team!’ I can’t say too much yet as it is top secret for the children.......
We will be taking the children on a trip to 'Magna' Science Park, on Tuesday 18th June for a wonderful interactive day learning about different forces.
Our literacy will also be linked to our topic, where we will write newspaper reports and poetry.
The children will be completing their end of year tests, (writing, reading, spelling, grammar and numeracy) during the weeks commencing:
Monday 1st July and Monday 8th July 2019.
These results will be combined with my teacher assessments over the year to track your child’s progress.
Can I take this opportunity to thank you all for the support you have given your child this year. I am extremely proud of the amazing progress and improved confidence of each and every child.
