Year 4 has had another busy week with lots of Christmas preparations taking place as the period of Advent continues.
The children have researched particular time periods for their Magic Coin story writing, finding out details about the Great Fire of London, Pirates or Mars.
They have created multiplication baubles to decorate our classroom with and have been investigating patterns and exploring number sentences.
They have also produced some beautiful water colour paintings inspired by the Annunciation according to Luke’s Gospel.
Well done for Alfie earning a Head Teacher award his Magic Coin paragraphs and Samuel, who has collected 50 house points and turned it into a Gold Star.
We have also decorated our class Christmas trees and participated in an Act of Worship.
This week was National Tree week and the children looked at how important trees are in our environment and the benefits they give. In design and technology, the children continued to explore making levers and mechanisms and over the next few weeks will be using their new skills to device and create their own greeting cards.
Thank you for all the beautiful musical instruments and also for your contributions towards the class hamper (our theme is white).
We wish you a lovely weekend.
Ms Varga and Mrs McNamara
