Week 7 - 19h October 2020
Our final week for the first half term in year 4, I can’t believe how quick it has gone. I hope that you would agree with me that the children have been super since coming back. They quickly got back into school life and have adapted to the changes well. So a really big well done to Plymouth class!
This week was our class assembly, so hopefully you have seen the star named ‘Class assembly’ to watch the video. They all worked very hard and I am proud of them all. You children may have mentioned we have a focus learner each week; all my focus learners this half term have taken their responsibilities seriously and been helpful to me and their classmates.
In Plymouth class this week, the children have been writing persuasive speeches, counting in multiples of 3, 4, 8, and 6, (we started multiplication and division this week which will continue the first week back in November), learning about electrical insulators and conductors, and discussing the uses of the river Nile.
It was also exciting this week as we had a focus on ‘Black History’ where we discussed the importance of black history and why it is of significance in our world today. We focused on the life of Benjamin Zaphaniah, a black british poet who worked very hard for his poems to be heard by everyone. The children listened to his poem ‘Talkin’ Turkeys’ which they enjoyed.
Next term, we have forest school on Tuesday instead of PE. As I mentioned earlier, a massive well done to the children this half term for their efforts and I will look forward to seeing you all after half term. Enjoy, stay safe and a happy Halloween for Saturday 31st October.
