Welcome to the 4A Blog!

We have managed to sort out the blogs and so I will fill you in on the last couple of weeks.
The children have all settled in well to Year 4 and have all adopted their class jobs responsibly.

In our English lessons, we have been looking at the book 'Friend or Foe'. The children have all engaged well with the book and have enjoyed 'hot seating' the characters, acting out the scenes and writing diary extracts. 

We have been looking at the digestive system in science. We have all had lots of fun recreating the digestive process using a toffee sauce sandwich, a sandwich bag, water and a pair of tights. We also created models of our teeth using pink and white play dough.

The children are thoroughly enjoying our history topic on WW2. We have began to look at the reason why the war started and next week we will move on to looking at the Blitz. We have had some fantastic show and tells with children bringing in WW2 medals and artefacts.

Finally a quick note about reading diaries. Children should be reading on a daily basis and recording this in their reading records. Mrs Holt or myself will check these on a Wednesday so please ensure children bring their reading records in on this day. Children are encouraged to write in these throughout the day if they have been reading in the morning or afternoon. 

Have a lovely weekend.
