This week in Year 4 we have spent time discussing the Epiphany story from Matthew’s Gospel and the meaning of the three gifts brought to the baby Jesus.  The children have reflected on why these gifts were given to Jesus and what Mary may have felt receiving these gifts for her baby.

As well as creating their crowns, the children presented their gifts for 2019 and have been reflecting on how they can be true signs of Jesus at Pope Paul School. They wore their crowns with pride at this morning’s assembly.

The children have begun new learning on fractions and multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000. They were introduced to place value sliders and cuisenaire rods and used these competently to assist their calculations.  Well done!

In English the children have also started working on examining playscripts and began their group focus working in small groups and performing the play, taking into account stage directions etc.. Each group were given a short amount of time today to perform a part of their play to the rest of the class.  The children acted with such expertise.


The homework has been sent home and Mathletics activities have been assigned.  If there are ANY problems with Mathletics, please make me aware on Monday.


Have a lovely weekend.
