Another active week in Y4
Very well done to the 10 pupils who braved the freezing temperatures to spend two days increasing their cycling skills. The level 1 and 2 course has tested the children's ability to cycle confidently on both the playground and the local roads. There will be another two rounds of Bikeability in March. If your child is yet to do the course please encourage them to cycle as frequently as possible to give them as much experience as possible. If the children are weaker on the first morning of the 2 day course they will not be able to continue on to the next level. Could you please check that your child's bike is roadworthy and they have a helmet. If this is an issue come and see me or mention it at parents evening in two weeks time.
Your children now have their spag.com log in details. This is a computer-based program that the school has been using for over a year. We are now promoting its use across the school as a good way to practise spelling, punctuation and grammar skills. I will set a weekly task online matched to your child's ability. I can track their progress online. Take a look with your child and see how you can help them at home. They have stuck their log-ins into their reading diaries for safe-keeping.
I am so pleased with the class for many reasons. One of these reasons is reading. This week is the first week in months that we have all read at least once. It has taken a lot of energy and effort to remind the regular non-readers but as a team we rae getting there. Thank you for your continued efforts at home. I know we all lead busy lives.
Read the sports blog this week for the details of the gymnastics competition. Four of our class joined some children from Years 2 and 3 to compete against other schools. The Y3/4 team won their competition; huge congratulations to Luke, Harriet, Eloise and Ashton.
Also congratulations to the whole class as we won the attendance race this week. We were the only class to get 100% attendance. We have welcomed Attendance Ted (school bear) into our class. We haven't seen him in a while. Miss T is going to knit him a new hat as we have been experiencing very cold weather. Thanks Miss T!
We have assessment week next week but inbetween assessments we will starting our 2 week block on local history. If you know anything about Great Yarmouth in World War 2 talk to your child about it. Also we have the knowledge organiser attached below.
Secret phrase is 'World War 2'.
Have a great weekend from Miss Studley and Miss T.
