Welcome

Welcome back! We hope you enjoyed a relaxing half term break and are ready for the excitement that we have planned for the beginning of the Spring term.

We have lots of great things planned this year! Please keep an eye on the website as it will be regularly updated with important information.

This term in English we will be exploring the Power of Reading book, Into the Forest by Anthony Browne. In Maths, it is expected that by the end of Year 4, students will know all of their times tables up to 12 x 12. This term we will be focusing on telling the time and fractions.  In Science we are learning about Electricity and will be creating our own circuits!  In Project we are exploring Invaders known as the Vikings. We will be visiting the British Museum as part of this topic. 

If you have a question please do not hesitate to contact your child's class teacher, and thanks for your continued support.

Year 4 Residential Trip Tuesday 12th February 2019

10:55am - Ms Yusuf messaged to say that the group had arrived safely. 

6pm - Ms Douglas messaged to say that everyone is having a blast!  She said it is a really organised place, lots of fun and great accommodation set up.  All the children are behaving beautifully and they were just having dinner.  Off for a campfire after dinner. 

9:30pm - Ms Douglas messaged to say that all the children are in bed.  Some are still awake but will hopefully be off to sleep very soon.  Sending lots of love back to London! 

 

Wednesday 13th February 2019

Ms Harman messaged this morning to say that everyone is loving the experience.  They had a super tasty cooked breakfast and were about to venture outside. (She has already volunteered to lead next year's trip!!)

Ms Douglas wrote: Morning! We are all great! We have been up, stripped beds and are all packed up.  The children gathered around to make their packed lunches for the day.  We are now having a delicious breakfast consisting of juice, cereal, toast and also eggs, beans and hash browns.  At 9 o'clock we will be going out to check if we have caught any friendly mammals in the humane traps the children built yesterday.  Then the children will take part in a challenging orienteering course!

1pm - Ms Douglas has emailed over the following message from the children:

On the trip I enjoyed... 

I enjoyed sleeping in a dormitory with my friends 

I enjoyed hiking and exploring in the woods 

I enjoyed singing around the campfire ... especially the boa constrictor song. 

I enjoyed making humane mammal traps and identifying what we found. 

I enjoyed cooking marshmallows around the campfire 

I enjoyed orienteering and finding the letters on the map. 

I enjoyed trapping the mammals and letting them free in their environment. 

I enjoyed playing table football in the common room. 

I enjoyed when we made waterproof and wind proof dens in the woods. 

I enjoyed the yummy English breakfast. 

I enjoyed creating a map and marking X on it for another group to find the treasure we hid. 

 

 

On the trip I learnt... 

I learnt how to identify a mouse, vole and a shrew. 

I learnt what humane means. 

I learnt what nocturnal and diurnal means. 

I learnt what animals and planets grow in Box Hill. 

I learnt how to read a map and how to draw a map. 

I learnt how to make humane mammal traps and how they work. 

I learnt how mice have adapted to survive in this habitat. 

I learnt about why Box Hill is called Box Hill and what a box tree is.
