Welcome to Willow Class!
We have had a busy and exciting first half term. Our theme was "Ancient Egypt" and we explored the tombs and treasures of the great Pharaoh "Tutankhamun". The children enjoyed the Egyptian theme day and tried out a variety of jobs, including mummy making, creating amulets, carving sculptures and trying Egyptian cuisine. The children have created shape poems, written diary entries and addressed letters to the Ancient Egyptian explorers and their stories based on historical texts were really imaginative and creative.
This half term our theme is "Out of Africa" and we will be writing letters, recounts and discussion texts based on "The Butterfly Lion" by Michael Morpurgo in our English lessons. The children will continue to extend their sentences in a variety of ways and convey emotions through actions to engage the reader. In Maths we will continue to practise the four operations, whilst learning to problem solve with measurement, multiplication and division. The science theme for this half term is "Animals, including Humans" and we are excited to learn about the animals native to Africa.
We would like to thank you for your support with your child’s learning, especially with reading at home. The requests for the Year 4 children remain the same; they should read to an adult three times a week, practise spellings and times tables for the Friday tests each week, have their PE kit in school on Tuesday and Thursday and complete their homework by Wednesday every week.
Thank you for your continued help with these expectations.
We had lots of fun with our grandparents when they came to play games with us. We played games such as Snakes and Ladders and Snap. Everybody had fun and there were lots of smiles and laughter in the class.
Thank you to all the grandparents who joined us!
We had so much fun dancing the night away in our fantastic costumes!
