Another week has flown by! The children of Year 4 started their Tring dance sessions on Tuesday and created some wonderful calligram poetry with Mrs Thompson. In the afternoon on a Tuesday, the children are learning about sketching techniques. They have been asked by Mrs Thompson to bring in a blanket to help with sketching some World War two art next Tuesday.

I have been delighted with all the children in class for getting their homework in on a weekly basis. Do keep it up and remember to keep your reading records up to date! We have an author of the month in class - in October we are learning more about Dick King Smith books and about the author himself!

In Maths this week we have continued to learn how to solve addition and subtraction calculations with larger numbers, using the numberline method and the column method. The maths homework this week will give the children time to practise using these methods. Next week we will be learning about the properties of 2D and 3D shapes!

The children have worked brilliantly on completing their historical stories (retelling the story of the Lion and the Unicorn). They are looking forward to producing their very own books to take home by the end of this term!

Many thanks for all the kind donations you sent in for the Salvation Army on Friday. It was most appreciated.
