In Year 4 this week, we have carried on with our narrative unit based on our class book, Stich Head by Guy Bass. It has been wonderful to see how many of you kind parents purchased the book series for your children. They absolutely love the story and it’s greatly impacting their outcomes too!

In Maths, we have been focusing on applying our scaled number facts in multi-step problem solving and extended that by using bar models as a representational tool.

In History we thought about the reasons behind Henry VIII’s decision to break off the relationship with the Pope (Rome) and the consequences it had for the country. We also used clay as our medium to create 3D Tudor Rose models which we are going to paint next week.

In Science, we carried out practical investigations to find out if gas has weight; what happens to gas when it is heated and finally if it is possible to create gas by adding a solid to a liquid.

On Wednesday, we had a wonderful day participating in Sports day. Well done to all the children, they did marvellously. Congratulations to St Vincent’s House! The children also enjoyed their session in the go karts and in the bouncy castle. The looked fabulous after receiving their glitter tattoos and enjoyed the Euros 2020 themes classroom activities too.

We carried over the party atmosphere into Thursday when after a busy morning, the children played cricket on the field, followed by biscuit decoration, party snacks and a short snippet of a movie.

Due to a changed schedule, the children participated in their final Djembe lesson this morning, performing their West African song, now including Caroline’s and Ela-Maria’s winning composition. Well done!

Have a wonderful and safe weekend before our final full week together,

Ms Varga and Mrs McNamara
