We have had a very busy week and the children have all worked incredibly hard. As you will see from my comment in the diaries, we have been working on addition and subtraction (including calculations which require an exchange) using drawn methods. I have attached some photographs of what this looks like so that you can work on this with your children if you feel they need a little more support.  We will be doing some further work with this method and  moving onto column methods over the next couple of weeks. 

The children have also begun to work on writing up their own fantasy stories, based around the model text 'Reilly' which they have learned. The introductions were pleasing to read.

We have been busy text mapping and learning our model text of a fantasy story.  The children have been rehearsing today and were brilliant at retelling the story. They have all taken home a copy of the complete text map and the model text. Please encourage your child to rehearse this over the next few days as we will be using the maps to write up the story, from memory, on Wednesday. 


Take a look at our photos. 

Talk for Writing in action!

Having spoken to a number of parents about suitable texts which your child may like to read at home, I have attached a list of books which are ideal for this age group. There are some fantastic books on the list so please take a look. 

100 Books to Read Before the End of Year Four.

We had a special little visitor at playtime today. Mr Watts brought in Mrs. Watts' puppy, Betsy, today. Some of us had a little stroke. Betsy was a bit nervous at first but then really enjoyed meeting the children once she had settled down. Miss Betchley took some photos for our Year Book. 

Meet Betsy.

We have had a very busy Half Term. The children have settled in beautifully and have been working hard in all areas of their learning.  They have made good progress this term and are a lovely group of children to teach. 


Our work has been based around our class text, 'WildSpark' which the children have thoroughly enjoyed. During art lessons, the children have been developing their watercolour painting techniques and have created some wonderful landscapes and cityscapes inspired by the city of Medlock and landscapes by Georgia O'Keeffe.  


As you are unable to come in and see the work, we have taken some photographs of the display. Apologies if they are a little dark. The children's work is lovely and I am very proud of their finished pieces.


During P.E. lessons with Mrs. Osman, the focus has been on Health and Fitness and Athletics with Coach Dan. The children thoroughly enjoy these sessions and take part enthusiastically. 


Please take a look at our photographs.
