Week beginning 1.9.2014

Year 4 have had a wonderful start to the term and settled well into their new classroom in the mobile. We have been very busy! We have discussed what makes a good learner and how we can choose to shine in the classroom! The children came up with our own class agreement of things we thought were important to make a happy and safe classroom environment. We have also talked about what makes each of us special and each child has shared three things about them!

The children discussed what the school Mission Statement meant for each of them and wrote some very thoughtful personal reflections. They also learned more about St Dominic on a fact finding mission! We are looking forward to discussing our family trees next week, as part of the start of our 'People' unit of work in RE. This was set as homework on Friday (alongside writing a personal prayer and learning the first set of topic spellings).

The children wrote some fantastic poems using 'I wish I was, I wish I could and I wish I had..' starters. We begin our new unit of English work about Historical Settings next week.

The children learned that there are many ways of practising times tables this week in Maths. Next week they will be continuing to practise mental addition and subtraction calculations and will be ordering numbers and finding numbers 'more and less' than other numbers.

We have also been busy electing School Council, Eco team and Liturgy Representatives this past week. Mrs O'Brien will announce the results in assembly on Monday! Good luck to those who stood for a position; I thought you all spoke very well in front of the class!

I hope you have a lovely weekend.
Mrs Gritz
