10th October 2018 Class Update
What a fantastic trip we had to Caerleon this week! You can be really proud of your child, because all of the children were superbly well behaved, engaged, interested and, in all, a credit to Ashfield Park. The children learned so much and the trip has really brought the topic to life for all the children! Those children who haven't completed their homework projects yet, may well be able to include some of what they have learned on the trip! On that note, the homework is due next Friday so that we have time to prepare the children for the exhibition on 25th October. If you need a reminder of what is needed, it sheet is attached above.
We also wanted to say a huge thank you to all parents who have supported their children in their daily reading and completing their reading diaries. It's great to see the majority of children meeting their target of reading at least 5 times a week.
3rd October 2018 Class Update
What an eggstrordonary and eggciting, week we have had in Year 4! Check out the photo gallery.
Our eggsperiment has reached its conclusion. Ask your children about eggsplosive eggs! On a more serious note, the children now have a much better understanding of why they need to brush their teeth regularly, especially after eating sugary food, so please try to remind them. We have also been learning how our tongues help us to taste things. This involved tasting bitter, sweet, sour and salty liquids and finding out where on their tongues they could taste the different flavours.
In maths, we have been using negative numbers and learning how a thermometer works. We now know that ice freezes a 0 degrees C.
We are still awaiting a few Caerleon trip replies. Please could you return them asap now, so that we can do our final planning. Thank you.
We have now started switching the children over to the new reading scheme. You may notice that they are in a different colour. Please don't worry, they have been put on the correct level. We have a fabulous collection of books for the children to enjoy, so please make sure your child reads every day and brings in their diary (signed by you)
Please make sure you return your Caerleon trip permission as soon as possible.
