What a wonderful well-being week we have had! Starting with our trip to Chedworth Roman Villa, followed by activities including pilates, singing workshops, art, drumming and outdoor poetry to name but a few, the children (and the staff!) have thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We are back to our normal timetable next week, so please ensure PE kits come in on the usual days. 

Next week: In Maths we are focusing on written subtraction. Key vocabulary includes: compact column subtraction; decomposition; expanded column subtraction; column subtraction. In English, we will be researching and planning our story set in Roman Britain.   

Please ensure that you view the school's calculation policy in order to see how we teach maths in Year 4 and across the school, which is available by clicking here.

Next week is also Parents' Evening on Monday (15.30-17.00) and Thursday (17.00-20.00). If you have not yet made an appointment with your child's class teacher, please do so by following the link in ParentMail or by contacting us to arrange an alternative appointment. 

We would also like to make a further plea for support in the year group with hearing individual readers and small group times table practise either at the start or end of the day. If anyone is available to support us with these areas, please see one of the class teachers for more information. We also appreciate your continued support with Friday's swimming sessions.  

Have a lovely weekend,

The Year 4 team
