Welcome back! We hope you enjoyed a relaxing half term and are excited for the final weeks of the school year! We have many exciting trips and themed weeks planned so we hope that you are looking forward to it all! 

Please keep an eye on the website as it will be regularly updated with important information.

This half term in English we will be continuing to explore the Power of Reading book, Varjak Paw and creative writing. 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 half term we will be focusing on geometry and positions.  In Science we are learning about sound. In Project we are learning about our local area, Shepherds Bush and how it has developed overtime. 

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

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:

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 playing table football in the common room. 

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

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