We have finished reading and studying the Iron Man in Literacy. The children have really enjoyed the book and have created some fantastic adventure stories of their own. We had a very creative afternoon on Wednesday when the children used lots of recycling to make their own Iron Man model. Mrs O'Brien was very impressed when she came to have a look at them all. 

In Maths, we have been learning how to tell the time and calculating time intervals. This is a very hard concept for all children, but 4A have been working very hard and have kept persevering. Next week we will begin to look at column subtraction. 

In Science, we have been looking at teeth. We have identified the main teeth and their simple functions. The children created models of their own teeth using different coloured play dough. 

Yesterday, Year 4 visited Hatfield House as part of our history topic 'The Tudors'.  A great day was had by all.  We were introduced to a few characters from the past including Catherine Parr and of course Henry VIII. Catherine Parr  taught us how to bow and greet Henry VIII.  We were told about the many weapons they used and even shown how to use a longbow! Have a look at 4K's blog to see the photos!

Please can I remind parents to sign up for their parent consultation slot if they have not done so already. 

Have a great weekend!
