Hawthorn

Year 4

 

Mrs Mossom and Mrs Smith

 

 

 

STAR OF THE WEEK!

Anti-bullying Week

As part of anti-bullying week, we thought about who are support network could be and wrote down the names of five people we could talk to if we were unhappy about something.

New Routines

Hawthorn class will start the day at 8:40 and finish the day at 3:10. You will come into school and leave school using the Hawthorn classroom back door.

 

We love reading here at The Pines and it would be fantastic if our children could read at home every day, or at least 4 times a week! Please could you also sign your child's reading record.

 

PE

Our regular PE lessons are on Tuesday and Thursday

 

We will do PE outside whenever it is possible. Please make sure your child has suitable outdoor PE kit, including outdoor shoes, in school at all times. PE kits will go home on Fridays to be washed. Children will not be able to borrow spare PE kit.  

 

Our Learning

We are currently learning about the Ancient Egyptians during our history and geography lessons. We have enjoyed learning about the River Nile and slavery so far. 

In English we have been busy planning and writing our own traditional tales. Next we will be learning how to write explanation texts.

In maths we are currently learning about addition and subtraction. We have been adding and subtracting 4 digit numbers and practising our problem solving skills too. Please continue to practise your times tables at home as much as possible.
