Week 2: 12th January

This week has flown by!

We started our new English unit looking at an old Vietnamese Folk-tale – ‘The Fly and the Fool’ and learnt about the characters – Mr Lo, The Judge, Lo and Lan.  The children worked in partners and their table groups to ensure they understood the story and acted out part of the story as well.  We are continuing with this focus on playscripts next week.  In Mathematics, we learnt about conversion in our topic of Measurement and starting learning more about shapes. In RE we spent time talking about Pope Francs’ teaching on the Joy of Love through his  writing ‘Amoris Laetitia’.

In PE this week, Coach Duggan joined us to assist with our learning and he will be with us this term.  The children had great fun doing a variety of athletic activities.  On Wednesday, the children went to Furzefield for their swimming lesson and a great time was had by all.

As part of a project with Stormont School to enhance our outdoor learning focus we are taking part in an environmental art project with their art specialist Ruth Burgess.  They will be planning and creating willow sculpture to enhance our Peace Garden trellis so we are all excited on seeing their creations in Spring!

So, for Year 4 this term, we have a lot going on and keeping us busy!

I have signed the children onto e-books via the Oxford University:

Please allow your child to choose a book (from the Aged 7-9 area) and listen to it whilst it is being read.


Homework has also been given to the children.  Please examine their home learning books

If the children have any queries, they can come along to the Monday lunchtime homework club.

Have a lovely weekend.
