The children in Year 4, this week, thought about mental strategies for addition and applied them when solving a tricky strategical problem involving dominoes. In English, they have written diary entries from a particular character’s point of view to show emotions. In Science, they set up their own investigation to answer the question: How do certain liquids affect the tooth enamel? In Art, the class created further tessellating stencils and used other media such as water colour to practice their pattern making.

In PE, the children participated in activities to practice their shielding skills through 3 different sports: tennis, basketball and unihoc.

On Thursday, we celebrated Mass in our classroom on the theme of ‘ Love one another’. Well done for all the readers and the whole class for their lovely singing and the prayerful atmosphere they created. Thank you for the parents who came; it has been great to have you there to share this special occasion with us.

A quick reminder to say, we are holding Parent Consultation meetings next week Tuesday and Thursday and we also have our first class trip to the Epping Forest District Museum (again on the Thursday) focusing on the Roman invasion of Britain (our next History topic). If there is anyone who could offer their time on the day to help us during the trip, please let me know as soon as possible. Thank you for your support in advance.

Have a lovely weekend,

Ms Varga
