Pause Week - Winter Olympic Games
During the week of the 19th February, Year 4 were involved in activities related to the Winter Olympics. We researched and wrote persuasive fact-files about particular sports. We learnt about famous Olympians in guided reading and we even watched some of the events live! The biggest highlight was designing and making our own Olympic torch in pairs.
We are going to be celebrating the harvest during the week of the 16th October. We have a Fair Trade theme and will hold an assembly on Wednesday 18th October at 2.30pm. We are collecting donations for the Portsmouth Food Bank, so if you have any spare tins, packets and other non perishable items please send them into school from Monday 16th October.
Welcome To Year 4
We hope you have all had a wonderful summer and are ready to start a fun year 4 full of learning and challenge.
We will be adding pictures and information about what has gone on and what is coming up as the year progresses.
We have posted our new class timetables but as the weeks pass there maybe slight changes.
Any problems or questions, please do not hesitate to ask your class teacher.
