What a wonderful week it has been in Year 4. We have been very busy with many interesting visitors and an unexpected delivery.
On Monday, the children, along with the staff, were surprised to see a huge parcel next to the bike shed. No-one knew where it had come from, who it was for, nor what was actually inside the parcel. The parcel was an excellent stimulus for our Everybody Writes Day. The children were encouraged to ask questions, speculate and use their imaginations to write about what they thought was in the parcel. The children wrote some amazing pieces of creative writing!
On Tuesday, the Year 4 children welcomed some visitors from the Mental Health Schools Team (MHST). They came in to talk about how we can deal with our worries and shared some strategies on how to cope when things get a bit tricky and when we don't know how to deal with those feelings.
We continued to welcome visitors into Year 4. On Friday, the visitors were our very our class parents. They came in to watch a typical maths lesson, and we hope they also learned some new maths tricks about multiplications. A huge thank you to all of the parents who came. Below are some links to the websites we use to help develop our multiplication knowledge. We use these alongside out usual Times Table Rock Stars and SumDog
