Why do people do that?
This half term children will be learning about Hinduism and Christianity. We will be exploring their way of living, their place of worship and looking deeper into the meanings of some festivals. Also very excited about our trip to a Temple (details about trip to follow).
Things to know:
PE is on Thursday. This half term it is our turn to have our sports coach Gemma where the children will be learning to play Tag Rugby. Please ensure PE kits are in school. They can stay on pegs during the week and then taken home to be washed over weekends.
Swimming for Bronte class is now on a Friday at Portland (not Lenton). Parents are able to either pick their child up from Portland at 3.05 or from school at 3.30. Please return slip to let us know which.
Forest School will be on a Thursday with Mrs Walker. Children are encouraged to bring in wellies.
In year 4, we expect the children to read every day. It’s vital that the children read regularly so that they can access all areas of their learning and make fantastic progress. You can earn a raffle ticket for every 3 reads recorded in your reading diary and raffle tickets mean prizes!
Children must keep practising their times tables up to 12 at home so they can complete their challenges in school. Your child should know and be able to use the commutative method. E.g. 2x4=8 in the 4x table and 4x2=8 in the 4x table.
