Its hard to believe we are already a week into our second half term and as ever we have been very busy in 4K! We have had a most successful week with Imola winning the Mayor's Christmas card competition. Also I have just returned from looking at our lovely Art display at the Public Halls and it seems 4K have a winning entry here also but I must also repeat how very impressed I was with the very high standard of entries to this exhibition. Well done 4K!
In Maths we have been doubling and halving to prepare ourselves for delving into fractions and decimals which we will continue over the next week before revisiting column addition. Then we will look at measurement and link it to decimals.
We have already begun our 'Space Explorer' unit and will continue this over the next couple of weeks. We are focusing on what qualities Neil Armstrong displayed througout his life by reading his biography that show hewould be a good astronaut. I have been impressed by the children's knowledge and interest in this subject. They will complete the unit by producing a biography for a candidate for a secret space mission highlighting the qualities they have that would make them good space travellers.
In RE we are continuing to learn about what it means to be called. For homework this week we have asked the children to do some research on Sean Devereux so we can discuss how he was called.
On Tuesday we spent an interesting afternoon discussing sustainability. The children showed a lot of awareness and interest in the ideas we discussed about how we could live more sustainably. Over the next couple of weeks we will look at how we could live more sustainably in school and I will be asking the children to think about how they can transfer this to their homes.
We are studying Electricity in Science this half term which links nicely with our Geography topic and we will continue to study the Tudors in Art and PE (we have today begun learning a Tudor dance!).
As always, thank you for your support with reading and homework. Please may I remind you that children should have their PE kit in school ready for our lessons on Wednesday and Friday and we change reading books, visit the library and check reading records on a Thursday.
Have a lovely weekend!
