Although not helped by the often rainy weather, Year 4 had  yet another busy week.

On Monday and Tuesday, the children completed their second big writing piece of the half term, a narrative of our shared book retold from another character’s point of view. The pieces are all very engaging and they worked very hard when writing them up in the neatest for display. Later on Wednesday, they have also drawn small illustrations to decorate their learning.

In Maths we further consolidated our fraction understanding and in Science we looked at simple series circuits and solved the problems in some of them, showing our understanding of complete loops, open and closed switches and different sources of power.

We celebrated the feast of the Ascension of the Lord by attending the Mass online on Thursday and we created pull up cards as a way of reflection. During the week, we have also looked at the events of Pentecost and thought about Jesus’ message to spread the Good News and ways we could do that in our lives now.

We carried on with our tennis learning with Mr Mills where by the end of our lesson, we could complete rallies of 26 hits over the net! Very well done!

Have a lovely and dry weekend,

Ms Varga and Mrs McNamara

English The children next week will go back to a story they have already started working on. It is called Mission Possible and it is about a sister and brother, Peter and Polly, who are secretly spies.

In our story, Peter and Polly completed a mission where they had to retrieve a valuable Japanese mirror from a dock house and had to leave it in front of the Japanese Embassy in London. During their task, they have used a special gadget. A small, green capsule which upon dropping it, released a smelly fog that allowed the siblings to run away.

For next week’s writing, your task is to design a gadget for the twin’s next mission. Be inventive! It could be a tool that makes them invisible, or allows them to fly, like a jetpack. It could be something that would enable them to move faster or an instrument that makes the enemy go to sleep or forget what they saw.

Please be ready to present your work on Tuesday. Include a picture if you can and a short description of how it works.
