For some of you, Sports Day is the highlight of the year, and you were probably worrying that you were going to miss out this year.
We obviously can't take part as we usually would, but instead we are going to be holding our first ever Virtual Sports Day!
I've attached some files that should tell you all you need to know, but you can always ask me if you have any questions.
I look forward to hearing and seeing how you all get on. As always you can use email or ClassDojo to update me on your progress.
Good luck, but even more importantly, enjoy it!
TEAMS update - 1st July
Good morning everyone. I'm really looking forward to another Teams call with you tomorrow. If anyone has trouble getting onto Teams, just let me know and I'll try to help.
I thought that we'd have a different game this week, and I think it might be fun to have an indoor scavenger hunt. I'd like you all to have a think today and come up with one thing that you would like to add to the list of items to find. It needs to be something that most people would have in their houses, but that might not be too easy to find. I'd like you to be creative and think about items that might be in different rooms. So that everyone else doesn't know what you are asking for, please send it in a message to me on ClassDojo.

Ideas of ways to keep active and busy
You will be set activities on a daily basis for English and maths, and weekly for times tables, spellings, topic, art, computing, science and RE. Other subjects we do include PE, music, French and PSHE.

Autumn Term 2019:
This term our topic is Mountains. We have learned where in the world the main mountain ranges are located. We know about the structure of our earth and the features of mountains. We are currently learning about the impact of people on mountain environments, and will finish by learning about the different types of mountain and how they are formed.
We also learned about Japan as the Rugby World Cup took place there this term.
In English lessons we have used the book 'Owen and the Mountain' as inspiration to write our own stories and we also did some letter writing.
We then went on to persuasive writing and designed a mountaineering accessory which we then wrote a radio advertisement for. Some of us recorded them on iPads.
Our most recent English work has looked at the animated film 'Smallfoot'. We used clips to write character and setting descriptions, and practice punctuating speech. We will finish the term by watching the whole film and then retelling the story.
In Science we have been working in our Year Groups. Year 4 children worked with Mrs. Wilson and Year 3 children with Mrs. Vaughan. All children have enjoyed a lot of practical work and have learned about rocks and light, or matter and sound
In Maths we spent the first few weeks consolidating our knowledge of Place Value. We are all really good at that now! We have also completed units on Addition and Subtraction, beginning with mental methods, and then working on formal written methods we can use to work with really big numbers. We are busy learning our times tables at the moment, ready to do more on Multiplying and Dividing in the new year.
We are having a big push on times tables at the moment and do weekly times table challenges along with our spelling test.
In PE we have had half a term working with the PE coach learning a variety of Inclusive Sports. We took part in Boccia, Seated Volleyball, Goalball and Curling.
We are very lucky to have Forest School on every third Friday afternoon. We have built screens and created an alternative Olympic Games using natural materials. We also cooked dough over an open fire. We have been taught how to work with tools safely and some of have even had a go at sawing branches.
