Year 4 had a truly fantastic finish to the first half of their Summer term. The children participated in daily activities inspired by ‘the God of Hope’ as part of their Spirituality Week. On Monday, they have created butterflies to a Prayer Partner in Year 3, whilst on Tuesday and Wednesday, they took part in prayer reflections and have written beautiful postcards to Members of our Community. On Thursday, they completed a carousel of Prayer Stations lead by the Year 6 Liturgy leaders. The sun came out just in time for the children to have a lovely, warm morning to think about Hope and prayer and to reflect on their role as ‘children of Hope’.
During the week, the children completed their last big narrative piece about a spy mission. Their stories are wonderful and I am very proud of them for having the stamina to write in such length and quality. Well done!
On Thursday, another interesting thing happened when two mysterious objects were brought into our classroom by Mrs Carey. The children had a great discussion about what it could be and where it could have come from. We finished Thursday with an exuberating Staggered Rounders match, which the children really enjoyed 😊
I want to say a huge thank you to the children for their hard work. Coming back from lockdown, to complete their first full half term was a big ask but they lived up to the expectations!
With the easing of the lockdown rules, I wish you all a lovely, restful holiday with your families,
Ms Varga and Mrs McNamara
Please see your Home Learning below:
- Please keep reading and updating your reading log. Mrs McNamara has already handed out quite a few reading awards but there are more to win!
- Please complete a research on the mysterious objects brought into our classroom yesterday. Some of you guessed that they might be animal eggs, some of you were more specific saying it could be a snake egg or a lizard egg. Please complete a short research about your ideas, collecting details about animals that lay eggs or maybe specific species. You could research animals that lay large eggs or create a collection of land, water and ‘sky’ animals that reproduce by laying eggs. Please be ready to present your research on the first day of the new term. It can include pictures (hand drawn or printed), paragraphs and bullet points of facts and information, maps of their habitat, diagrams of their diet, etc. Enjoy!
