Year 4 – 21.9.15

This week in Year 4; 

In maths we are looking at rounding numbers to the nearest 10 and 100. Remember high 5 round up, low 4 round down.

In English we are beginning to look at description and we are going to be describing Willy Wonka’s scrumptious chocolate room – ask us what fantastic words we have been using!

Our *words of the week* are churning, tremendous, bewildered, astonishing and oompa – loompa.

In topic we are looking at the Mayan number system and how they used place value, just like us.

In science we are going to be doing more experiments looking at solids.

And in DT we are going to finish our chocolate wrapper designs.

Fun, fun, fun!

Healthy Eating Club!

The children have been very busy in healthy eating club in the last two weeks. The first week we made delicious fruit skewers using: strawberries, grapes, kiwi, melon, apple and banana. The children helped prepare the fruit using their peeling and chopping skills.IMG_2287IMG_2289

This week we have made a variety of sandwiches. The children helped to prepare the fillings by:

  • chopping tomatoes, cucumbers, cheese and ham
  • making egg and cress mayonnaise
  • mixing tuna with cucumber or sweetcorn

  • ham, cheese and tomato
  • tuna and sweetcorn
  • tuna and cucumber

Good Luck to Staff leaving!

As a school we would like to take this chance to wish two of our fantastic members of staff all the best in their new roles away from St Pauls.

Firstly a huge good luck to Miss Thoesby who is taking some time out of teaching to spend time with her lovely little boy. We hope they are able to spend lots of quality time together.

Secondly a huge good luck to Miss Ward who was covering Mrs Browne in reception. We hope you have a lovely time in your new school.

You will both be greatly missed by staff, children and parents. Good Luck!
