Homework is beginning to arrive into school linked to our new topics and I have been impressed with the quality and variety of what I have seen. It is obvious that the children have engaged with the various projects and produced some very pleasing work as a result. Below are some examples of the homework that has so far been received. It's interesting to see how differently children interpret a task. For the project on bees, for example, some have written a non-chronological report and others (like Toby Scott) have made an informative leaflet. Thank you for your support with your child's homework, and keep up the good work 4S!
The children had a week of assessments last week, so there is not much to report, other than the fact that they knuckled down and worked very hard and produced some pleasing results, which I'm looking forward to discussing with you at Parents' Evening. If you haven't yet signed up for Parents' Evening, the booking slots are open for you to choose when you'd like to come and see me. If you are unable to make any of the dates I would still like the opportunity to meet with you, so please contact me and I will try and make an alternative date / time.
A belated welcome back to you all. I hope you all had a happy and restful Christmas.
Firstly I would like to thank everyone for their generous Christmas presents and kind wishes, it was most thoughtful and very much appreciated.
The Spring Term is sure to fly by in a flash, as once again we have a very busy term planned. A new curriculum map will be posted in the next few days, so you will have an accurate overview of what we are aiming to cover with your children. This term we will be studying Geography (rather than History) with the topic being 'The Rainforest'. Consequently, many of the homework topics will be linked to this subject. The homework for this term can be viewed on the website - just click on the homework link and you should find it. Well done to the few children that have already handed work in; I am most impressed with you dedication! A reminder that the expectation is that the children have to complete at least one piece of homework each half term.
At the end of last term the children had a fabulous day learning about WW2. The children looked amazing in their outfits and had a great time completing lots of interesting activities including:
Below is also a video of one (of the many!) air raid drills that 4S took part in... the Luftwaffe were very busy!
Each week we will update our blog with activities, pictures and comments on what we have been learning!
