A very quick update just to let you know Year 4s voted for their head boy and head girl as well as their school council rep this week. We had the opportunity to celebrate democracy in style with actual voting booths which Mrs Clements managed to borrow from the council! The children were indeed very excited.
Thursday was also an action packed day with Year 4 taking part in a science day. The topic on sound was introduced literally with a bang as well as with some dancing rice, thunder makers and whacky wind tubes! We also made good use of our data loggers where the children could literally measure the volume of their voices in decibels. The Year 4 team hoped that more than one learning objective here would be achieved! :-)
Hopefully Thursday inspired the children to complete their homework project on sound , although this isn't due until week Monday.
We also finished the week with a fabulous afternoon celebrating the European Day of languages. Birch went to the Seychelles and Ash to Belgium!
Let's see what next week as in store for us!
On a different note, thank you to all children who are trying hard to present their homework nearly. A gentle reminder that we would appreciate all children having the same commitment. Handwriting is a real focus in Year 4 at the moment and so we would appreciate it if all children could take care with their standard of presentation for work completed both in and out of school.
Finally, our glue stick supplies have already greatly diminished and so we would appreciate it if you could ensure your child has one in their pencil case. Thank you very much for your support.
Have a lovely week!
Mrs Renier and the Year 4 team.
