The children in Year 4 had yet another busy week with some practical tasks in Art and D&T.

In Maths, the class moved on to formal division with chunking whilst in English, they have written an accurate recount of the events of the ‘Journey’ by Aaron Becker, focusing on action sequences punctuated by commas and fronted adverbials. Later in the week, they also planned their own continuation of the story coming up with ideas as to where the 2 main characters could go next and what adversities they will overcome with the help of their magic crayons. The children will write their narrative based on these plans next week.

In RE, the class discussed the next Catholic Social Teaching principle of ‘Human Dignity’ and prayed the Stations of the Cross. The class then used maps and images to discuss how Jerusalem looked like at the time of Jesus’ death, focusing on important characters from Mark’s Gospel, such as Caiaphas, the Sanhedrin and Pontius Pilate. We also walked down to the church on Tuesday to rehearse for our Way of the Cross service next week.

We baked cakes to support our Lenten Charity cause on Thursday…

and later painted fruit composition inspired by Paul Cezanne.

I would like to thank the children as they showed amazing patience and respect after I’ve lost my voice on Tuesday and were brilliant throughout the rest of the week, helping me with all aspects of classwork! Thank you Year 4!

Next week, we are walking down to the church on Monday morning, so the children will need hooded coats in case it rains.

On Tuesday, we are off tour our Year 3-4 charity walk, therefore they will need wellington boots or old trainers (that you don’t mind getting dirty) that day. In the evening, we will also participate in the KS2 Way of the Cross at Church. Children should wear normal uniforms for that with a tie.

Wednesday, is the children’s last swimming, whilst Thursday is our last day of the term. Please remember, it is early pick up time at 1pm, followed by the Easter Egg Hunt organised by FOPPS. Make sure you buy your entry for that through School Gateway.

Have a lovely weekend,

Ms Varga
