Pyjamas, teddies and hot chocolate!

We all had a great day celebrating World Book Day in school, although it was quite difficult to stay awake as we had become rather comfortable in our pyjamas and dressing gowns! Our day began with an intriguing red box arriving in our classroom, which was soon revealed as our recommended reads for Year 4! A set of 10 brilliant and exciting books for our children to begin a new reading adventure! The books can be borrowed by the children and taken home and then they have the opportunity to blog about their reading experience sharing their love for the book and encourage other children to begin the same adventure! There is a link to the Year 4 recommended book list on the Wood Fold Primary School website if you want to have a look and see what books the children will have the opportunity to read!

I shared with the children my favourite bedtime story – The BFG and we read the first couple of chapters together, slurping on hot chocolate and cuddling our teddies. I have never seen 30 more fascinated and engaged children! We then blogged about our own favourite bedtime stories and it was lovely hearing about the children’s reading experiences.

Hear we are enjoying World Book Day!

I think we should come to school in our pyjamas more often! What do you think Y4H?

Star of the Week Review

This week at school in Year 4H we have been learning about Romans and the Roman Empire. We have looked at the way they lived and we have learnt that Romans gave us lots of inventions that we still use today such as: roads and numbers (roman numerals). We also learnt that Romans came to England for riches, slaves and raw materials like leather and wool. The Romans successfully invaded England in 43AD when Claudius was the emperor.
In maths we have been doing 1000 more and 1000 less of a given number. We have also been focusing on our 8′s, 9′s, 7′s and 12′s times tables.

Our attendance this week was 98.3%.
