Letter from the Queen.
A few weeks ago, one of our writing tasks was to write a letter to the Queen, I suggested you may want to post your letter to the Queen. George in class 9 did just that, and amazingly he received a reply from Windsor Castle. We were very excited when George showed the children in our bubble his letter, and thought we would share it with all you at home too.

Welcome to Year 4
We have had a busy and successful start to our new Spring term. We are looking forward to lots of exciting activities over the coming weeks.
In RE, we will be looking at The Easter Story.
We are already enjoying taking part in the Votes for Schools project within our PSHE lessons! This has proved an exciting way for the children to find out about one of our key British Value: democratic elections! Each week there is a topic to focus on that is current in the news. The children have chance to discuss it and cast their votes.
In our English lessons we will be working hard to improve our reading, writing and spelling skills. We will be focusing on Non- Fiction and fiction writing. We will start the term by looking at instructional texts and balanced arguments.
In Mathematics, we will begin by looking at place value. By the end of Year 4 all pupils should know their times-tables to 12 x 12, so we will be working on this throughout the year!
Our topic in Science is all about living things and their habitats. We are really looking forward to our STEM week.
In Geography we are learning all about North and South America.
In Art we will be linking our work to Geography and Science.
We will continue to use Purple Mash to support our Computing work: both in terms of skills development as well as topic application.
In Class 9 we have outdoor PE with Mr Hawthorne on Tuesday and and Swimming on a Monday , so please make sure your full kit is in school for the week and swim kits every Monday. Remember to bring in winter wear for PE if required. (School tracksuit bottoms and tops).
We will continue to have French and Music lessons on Tuesday morning.
