It was lovely to see you all at parents evening on Monday and Tuesday. If there are still things you wish to talk about but didn't get the chance to, please feel free to make an appointment to see me. Thank you to all of those parents who had a go at the estimation station...there were some very close estimates!
In Maths we have been calculating the perimeters of complex shapes with many sides. We then moved on to calculate the perimeter of shapes were the lengths of some sides were missing.
In Literacy the children have planned a newspaper report for 'Year 4D's Sport Supplement' and will write these next week.
Preparations for this years 3 and 4 production of 'Sleeping Beauty' (with a twist!) got under way this week. The children listened to the first song 'Celebrity Status' and have been asked to practice this for homework.
We have also began preparations for our class mass this week and we do hope that you are all able to make it. The children have worked extremely hard to learn the order of service and hymns.
As well as class mass, there is our trip to Hatfield House on Thursday and Science workshops running all next week!
We are very much looking forward to inviting Mr Hallam into school on Monday morning who will be talking to us about his job as an engineer. He has also planned a very exciting activity for the children to take part in.
Mr Scarborough is also coming into school on Monday to talk to the children about F1 cars. He has planned a fun and interactive assembly for the whole school to enjoy.
On Tuesday afternoon the children will be taking part in a SETPOINT workshop called 'Moondust on my Socks' which I hope will be both practical and engaging. Thank you to those parents who volunteered to help at this workshop. Other year groups still require more helpers so if you are able to help, please let the office know. Mrs Hansen will be staying behind after this workshop to talk to the children about a science conference she attended this week.
A reminder to parents that we have asked the children to dress up as a Tudor for our trip to Hatfield House on Thursday, For this trip, the children have been asked to learn a song which has also been sent home for homework this week.
