Today we enjoyed dressing up and taking part in all things French! We started the day with a delicious French breakfast. Throughout the day, the children studied the work of 4 famous French artists (Seurat, Rousseau, Matisse and Blek le Rat), learnt some French vocabulary linked to the art and had a go at re creating some of the work themselves.
Quelle belle journée!
This week, Year 3 and 4 have enjoyed learning all about Turkey and Portugal. They have taken part in lots of interesting activities including: designing a Turkish rug, making their own 'Evil Eye', designing their own 'Galo de Barcelos' and learning about the legend behind its creation.
We were also lucky enough to try some delicious authentic Turkish food from a local Turkish resturant! Thank you Turkuaz!
The week isn't over yet though... we are all looking forward to French Day tomorrow!
Year 4 had a great time visiting the market to buy ingredients for their soup. They had to use all kinds of maths, including addition, subtraction and multiplication of money, weight, fractions and thinking about quantities.
They did really well and even survived one of the market traders trying to scare them with a live lobster!

Welcome to Y4. During the spring term the children are learning about the Vikings. In science they will be looking at sound and the properties of materials. We will also have our exciting money week where we will be visited by many people who live in the local area to talk to the children about the types of jobs they do.
Homework is set on Fridays and is due in school on Wednesday.
Spellings will be given each week and sent home on Monday.
There is also extra homework options given out each term.
PE sessions will be on Wednesday and Thursday

Last week, some of the children in years three and four were able to take part in 'Able Maths Day' at Balby Central. They had the chance to meet a Robot from Robot Wars and learn about the maths involved in making one of them, including weighing, measuring and finding the area of different parts.
They had a great day and did us all proud!
Last Friday, Year 4 went to learn even more about the Anglo Saxons at Murton Park in York. They visited an Anglo Saxon village where they could make clay lamps, they learned what day to day life would have been like and learned how warriors would have trained. Mrs Phillips was particularly pleased when they were told how money worked and it involved fractions!
Everything was going fine until a Mercian invaded and everyone had to rely on Family 3 to save the day! Thankfully they did and we all made it back to school safely.
Everyone had a great day. Faith even said it was the best trip she’d been on as soon as she had arrived!
Thank you to everyone who was able to come to our 'Learn how we learn roadshow' on Wednesday! It was lovely to see so many people and talk to some of you about the things we are doing in class.
For people who were unable to come (or those who might have lost them!) I have added the maths guides to the website so you can access them from home. You can find them under the 'Parents' heading on the front page and then 'Parents' Guides'. I hope you find them useful and if you have any questions then please don't hesitate to ask.
