  • PE and swimming are a core part of our curriculum. All children should take part unless they have a note from a doctor or a parent to excuse them. When children are not taking part, we ask that they still bring their PE kit as we can adapt the lesson for them.  We can often include them in the lesson as a coach, a referee or to give feedback to others. If your child would be swimming, they should bring their normal PE kit.

  • DATES: 4P class assembly, Monday 19 October at 1.45 - 2.30pm.


The students will be looking at the features of explanation texts including reading how bread is made.

They will continue developing an understanding of features of causal connectives to apply these in their own writing. The students will be designing their own crazy contraptions with written explanations.


This week the focus will be on addition and subtraction. The children will complete mental mathematical challenges and puzzles, designed to help them become more fluent when working quickly and accurately. The connection between addition and subtraction will be reinforced and missing number questions will feature strongly. They will be practising using column addition with larger numbers, learning to choose the most effective method to calculate. Word problems and identifying the operation needed to complete a calculation will also be a particular focus.


This week we will be looking at inventors and their inventions! The children will be researching the lives of people from the past and discovering why they felt the need to invent the things that they did. They will use a number of different sources to research and gather information and then present this to the rest of the class. They are also going to be using these inventions to create an interesting piece of artwork in the style of Picasso!


The children will discuss a ‘life without electricity’.


Literacy – explanation, diagram, flow chart, causal connectives, skimming, scanning, retrieve, non-fiction, text

Maths – addition, subtraction, sum, total, difference, take away, result, column, inverse, equals

Themed Learning – research, gather, record, presentation


Terwijl Tiuri, zoon van Tiuri de Dappere, strijdt tegen Grauwe Ridders, moet oppassen voor Rode Ridders en de blauwe rivier afreist op zoek naar de kluizenaar Menaures, leggen de brieven van KS2 leerlingen aan Koning Willem-Alexander een hele andere weg af, namelijk die naar het kantoor van de Consul Generaal.

De formele uitnodigingsbrieven zijn dus de deur uit. Zal het harde werken beloond worden? We zullen ons nu richten op het schrijven van kattebelletjes en een informerende brief over de altijd bruisende stad Shanghai.

Moeilijke woorden die u thuis kunt bespreken n.a.v. het boek:

waken, vasten, de burcht(heer/vrouwe), grauw, zich haasten, de bestemming

Moeilijke themawoorden (gelinkt aan het thema brieven schrijven) zijn:

de aanhef, de afsluiting/het slot, informeel, formeel, Geachte ..., Hoogachtend ..., Beste ..., Met vriendelijke groet ...,

Een heel fijn weekend gewenst!
