Dear year 4 parents/pupils
Miss Jameson has set up a times table rock stars battle between years 3, 4, 5 and 6.
The battle has already begun and finishes on the 12th January. Please get on rock stars and, once again, prove we’re the best times tablers in the school.
Let battle commence! Go Team Year4
On behalf of Mrs Ashcroft, Mrs Jones and myself, I’d just like to thank you all for your kind gifts. It’s hugely appreciated, so thank you very much.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the year 4 pupils for a fantastic term under difficult circumstances. They have all worked incredibly hard and are a credit to each and every one of you.
Finally, we would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and hope you enjoy a well earned break with your families.
Mrs Jones, Mrs Ashcroft and Mr Lamb
Due to assessment week taking place next week, I have decided to give the children a rest, and, therefore, will not be setting homework this weekend. It is important that the children are given a break and get the opportunity to relax.
Everybody Sing Along – with vocals
I have attached another Christmas song for the children to learn. Due to the weather, we are performing indoors next week.
This Friday (27th November) we will be having our first birthday celebration, this is for all of the children who have had a birthday during September, October and November. These children can come to school in their own clothes and the rest of the children will either come in their normal school uniform or PE kit if it is there usual PE day.
The children do not need to bring anything in for our celebration, school will provide a cupcake and candle for each birthday child and we have planned some games to play in our bubbles where the children will have the chance to win some sweets.
We have some banners to put up in all of our classrooms and we will play some party music to try and create a fun and exciting birthday atmosphere. We hope the children enjoy celebrating with their friends!
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The flu immunisation for the children in Reception to Year 6 will take place on Monday 23rd November 20.
To clarify, cross country will take place on the yard, not the field.
Can I ask that year 4 children attend school tomorrow (Thursday 12th November) in their PE kits to participate in cross country. This year, cross country will take place in school, rather than All Saints, and will not include other schools. I have deliberately left cross country until Thursday as it coincides with a maths lesson, converting metres and kilometres.
As always, I am happy to answer any questions/queries you may have.
As part of our commitment to make maths exciting and high profile in our school, this November we are taking part in a competition for Maths Week England. It’s called Rock Out 2020 and it’s all done online via play.ttrockstars.com.
For every correct answer to a multiplication or division question, your child will earn their class a point. The Times Tables Rock Stars platform will calculate the class average (the number of correct answers per pupil in the class who play during the competition hours). Winning classes in the school and in the country as a whole will be the ones with the highest average.
All game modes (Gig, Garage, Studio, etc.) will count but only from games played between 7.30am and 7.30pm on Monday 9th, Tuesday 10th, Wednesday 11th, Thursday 12th, Friday 13th and Saturday 14th.
In the spirit of the competition, please don’t play on their behalf but by all means encourage and support them to the extent that it doesn’t cause high stress levels or impact on family plans. We suggest a limit of half an hour a day outside school hours – some will play more, some will play less.
Thanks for your support and Rock out!
