Week Beginning 18th October

October 17, 2021

This week is the last week of the half term. The children have worked really hard this term and we hope everyone enjoys the half term break.

This week our learning will be as follows;

  • In mathematics we will round numbers to the nearest 100 and the nearest 10.
  • In English we will write a diary entry in role as Ahmet from The Boy at the Back of the Class.
  • In science we will complete our investigation of sound by making musical instruments.
  • In RE we will continue with our Challenge Unit “Why do you judge me.” This week we will be thinking about Black History Month and learning about Doreen and Neville Lawrence and their fight for justice for their son Stephen.

Southwark Class will do PE on Wednesday and Thursday and Millenium Class on Wednesday and Friday. Children should wear PE kit on those days.  There will be no swimming this week due to the closure of Whitgift School for half term.

Please could the children bring in small boxes for making musical instruments in science.

We are looking forward to seeing parents on School Cloud this week. Please make your appointment if you have not already done so.

This week our learning will  be as follows;

  • In mathematics we will look at rounding and estimating. We will also carry out assessment tests.
  • In English we will look at the features of a diary entry before planning our own diary entry based on The Boy at the Back of the Class.
  • In science we will investigate the affect the strength of vibrations has on the volume of a sound.
  • Our blocked foundation subject this week is RE. We will be following a challenge unit called “Why do you Judge me” which looks at discrimination and inclusion.

Both year 4 classes have PE on Wednesday. Millennium Class also have swimming on Tuesday and Southwark Class have PE on Thursday.

We enjoyed our first aid session last Monday. The children worked really hard.
