It was lovely meeting you all this week and you will have seen how hard we have been working! The children have begun Year 4 with lots of enthusiasm and settled well into 4K.
The children definitely deserve a break and for this reason there is only one piece of homework which is to create a piece of art based on the theme of autumn. We will be taking part in a pop up art exhibition on Friday 4th November at the Public Halls and each class will display two pieces of art which can be in any form including 3D, sculpture or even photography. There will be prizes awarded at the exhibition in four categories: most realistic; most creative; most humorous and favourite overall. Please do not feel this should take hours of your time, spending around an hour on the project should be sufficient.
I mentioned to many of you that we are going to be focusing on handwriting and presentation and I will find a suitable example sheet with every letter formed as we teach it, and I will send this home during the first week of term. I have gone through all the capital letters and the children could practise the correct formation of these.
Over the last fortnight we have enjoyed the inspiring visit by the Mighty Zulu Nation Theatre Company, learnt how to do column subtraction and written some poems using metaphors, simile and personification to create images with our words. We have completed our work on the Tudors and Healthy Eating, made torches, learned about the Torah, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs and begun our RE unit in which we will explore what it means to be called or chosen.
Have a wonderful break.
