Week 7 Summer 2
Dear all, firstly thank you to the Owls for exemplary behaviour both during Bikeablilty and the trip. What a fun week we had! A special mention to Krista and Carl for organising the BBQ and food and to Mrs Stock and Miss Cummings for all of their help.
Next week is yet another busy week, please see below for equipment / items that are needed:
Tuesday: Science morning - The stimulus is from the book 'Star in a jar.' We will be completing 5 activities:
Star consolation tubes
Parachutes and balloon rockets
Star lava jars
Starry Night pictures
Electrical circuits - stars in a jar
Your child will need: a small plastic bottle with a lid - no bigger than 500ml and a cardboard tube, it can be a kitchen roll tube, pringle container, wrapping paper tube or similar. No toilet rolls please.
On Wednesday, Owls will be making their torches. They will need another plastic bottle and maybe a cardboard tube. This will depend on their design, but they have assured me they can source what they need!
Please wear PE kit on Wednesday and Thursday next week .Swimming has now finished.
We cannot believe that next week is the last one in Owls! We would like to say a massive thank you to parents and pupils for all your help and support over the year. It has been challenging with Covid restrictions and a lockdown but we feel very lucky to have had the support of such an amazing group of parents. We know we have been incredibly lucky. It is has been a privilege and honour to teach Owls and we wish them all the best in Swans.
Best wishes Elaine

Spelling shed is now working for all children. Please make sure your child completes this on a daily basis, this is also part of the set homework. We have practised the games in school. There are some children who have forgotten their login. They are in the front of their reading records. We advise making a note of all logins just in case the reading record gets lost. Please send me an email if you have any problems with Spelling shed, including finding your child's login. After half term, the spelling tests will be on a Monday and then new spellings will be taught and given out on a Tuesday.
Absence: If your child is absent from school, you can access Power points and PDFs on the website - if they are well enough! If you are having to self-isolate, please contact me and I can arrange to zoom with your child.
The spelling list and timetable, PDF's and power points of all lessons are available on the website. In addition, below are some useful websites:

Seesaw - please check seesaw regularly, we upload videos and photographs of your child's work. If you are unable to login, please email me and I will send out a new login. Thanks Elaine
Arrival Time: Just a polite reminder that year 4 arrival time is 8:45am. it is important that children arrive at their allocated time to avoid cross over of bubbles and also to ensure that your child does not miss out on key work. Some children have been arriving as late as 9am. This means they have missed vital TTR practice and morning work - this consists of practice maths questions, which reinforce taught concepts.
Homework: Please ensure your child's homework book is returned to school by Wednesday each week. We will be going through the work in class every Wednesday. Please also continue with daily reading, TTR and Spelling Shed. Regular TRR will help prepare your child for the Year 4 Multiplication test, which will take place in June.
Reading for at least 30 minutes a day, 10 minutes to an adult. Get whoever hears you read to write in the daily reading record daily and initial or sign it. On Fridays we will look at the reading records to celebrate all the reading that is taking place.
Daily TTR, we have also added 144 practice sheets to the files.
Use Hit the button to practise quick recall of number bonds to 100
