November already - time is flying by so fast it's hard to keep pace with it. The children are rising to all the challenges put before them and are keen to share their existing knowledge and skills while at the same time developing new ones.
We have successfully completed our first half term of learning in Year Four and the children all performed well and shown enthusiasm for all the different learning they have done.
Our new topic for this half term is called 'Roaming Romans' a paper copy of this topic web has been sent home with your child and an electronic version is available to download on this, our 4Gpage. Please keep your copy on display so you can discuss with your child what we are doing each week in class.
A big thank you to everyone for attending our parents consultation evenings, it was a pleasure to have the opportunity to discuss your child's progress and attainment with you. It was reassuring to see how highly you value your child's education and how much you support everything we do in school - your children are lucky to have such dedicated parents and carers.
November is a busy month for 4G. Preparations are underway for our Christmas concert and I'm sure you will be hearing your child singing Christmas songs to his/herself over the coming weeks.
We have completed our first 'Year Four Spelling Bee.' It was a hotly contested event and the children are clearly very engaged with our new whole school approach to spelling and their spelling abilities are improving as a result - keep up the spelling practise at home, it makes a massive difference to their writing in school. The winners of our Spelling Bee received a certificate in our achievement assembly.
