Friday 12th July

 

The last full week of term has been extremely busy. The children performed brilliantly at presentation afternoon. I hope you were all extremely proud of them and their achievements this year. 

 

This week the children have still been working hard. They learned about Mary 1 and considered whether she was really the terrible character she has been painted as. In Maths they continued to learn about coordinates. They finished off the week with a Maths treasure hunt using all the skills they have learnt over the year to unlock the treasure.

 

The children also enjoyed testing their cars and we asked Mr Moses to be an impartial judge to see which car travelled furthest. Well done to Liora, Amelie and Hollie, the winning team!

 

As this is the last blog of the school year I would like to take the opportunity to say that it has been an absolute pleasure teaching your children in Year 4 and wish you all an enjoyable summer.

In Maths this week the children finished off their money topic by creating a shop. The Year 2 children visited and enjoyed buying different items from the Year 4s. The Year 4 children worked hard giving change and found that they had to calculate quickly to make sure the correct change was given. The children began learning about coordinates on Thursday, this topic will continue next week. 

 

In Topic, we debated which of Henry VIIIs wife had the worst life, and which had the best. The children gave interesting and thoughtful reasons for who was worse off.
