We hope you are having a restful half term. Here’s a quick run down of the exciting half term to come.
In the second half of the autumn term we will be studying the Amazon River.
In our Mantle of the Expert drama, tribal leaders leaving on the banks of the Amazon river have contacted National Geographic , many of the tribal elders are distressed about the changes that have happened to the river and rainforest . They want the world to know about the importance of this river and the terrible effect that deforestation and farming is causing to the rainforest environment. The team have been approached to make a journey along the river, document their journey and then write an article for National Geographic which will highlight the critical global issues to the world- before it is to late…
Our DT project a food project about adapting recipes. WE will be taking our inspiration from Chinese food, following up last term’s Ancient China project.
Please keep up the regular reading at home and TT Rocks homework.
Year 4, they should begin to play the SOUNDCHECK game as this replicates the government TimesTables test that all Year 4’s sit in May. Playing the SOUNDCHECK game at home will mean that the children won’t be too daunted when faced with it in the summer term. Mrs O’Grady would love the children to challenge her on the ROCKSLAM game too.
Mrs Chapman O’Grady will check each week that your child have read to an adult at home and been online to play the games. Children who have not completed homework tasks will attend homework club to catch up during Wednesday lunch times.
. Please ensure that your child has a full PE kit in school (shorts, t-shirt, trainers, jogging bottoms) every week. PE kits should be brought in on Mondays and taken home for washing on Fridays.
