Week Beginning 19 September 2016

From Wednesday 21 September to Friday 23 September next week we will have our official school photographers Pret-a-Portrait in school. They will be taking individual student photographs for all students. Your child will be involved in this round of photos and so we ask that you ensure they are smartly dressed and wearing appropriate school uniform on Wednesday 21 September to Friday 23 September.


  • Homework will be given out on Wednesdays and expected in on Mondays. 
  • Please ensure that your child has the correct school uniform. In particular please ensure your child is wearing black shoes. Girls should wear plain white socks and boys should wear black or grey socks. You can review the school’s uniform policy here.
  • Please remember to send in and label your child’s snack box and water bottle, as well as a hat during the hot weather.
  • If for any reason your child is unable to take part in PE, please send a signed message in your child’s communication book.  Your child still needs to bring in their PE kit to enable them to participate as a coach, an official or to give feedback.  If your child would be swimming, they should bring their normal PE kit.


This week the children will be continuing their investigation of non-fiction texts. They will start to create their paragraphs on Appearance and Diet & Teeth for their class dinosaur.  Building upon the text map work they consolidated last week, children will amend the text map to suit their dinosaur.  This will involve them creating their own text map, to aid their sentence and paragraph structuring. By the end of the week, the children will have written a paragraph about their dinosaur’s appearance and will have created a text map for their paragraph on Diet and Teeth.


Title, sub-title, heading, sub-heading, information, paragraph, appearance, diet, text map, picture, action


This week we will be investigating the children’s knowledge and understanding of addition and subtraction. They will be consolidating their prior knowledge from Year 2 before moving on to the column method for addition and subtraction. As well as practising the column method children will acquire a deeper level of understanding by applying their knowledge.


Hundreds, tens, units, addition, plus, increase, subtraction, decrease, minus, column, solutions, checking


In Themed Learning, the children will be designing and making negative stencils and collographs of dinosaur footprints, plants from the Mesozoic times and fossils. These will be used to create prints and rubbings using paint and wax. The final piece of artwork will be used as a background paper to present their dinosaur non-chronological report.


Stencil, negative, rubbing, printing, collographs, Mesozoic


This week the children will be continuing to learn how to use Microsoft Word. They will be focussing on changing font, font size and colour, as well as inserting pictures and WordArt into a document. The children will also consolidate opening and saving files.


Keyboard, font, insert, image, WordArt, document, file


Through both Literacy and Art, the children will be learning how to give each other feedback that is kind, specific and helpful. During our printing unit we will reflect on what has gone well and help others to decide how they can improve their work based on the shared success criteria.


Feedback, kind, specific, helpful, success criteria, assessment, reflection, peer, self

Welkom bij Reisbureau SDS!

De medewerkers van KS2 van Reisbureau SDS blijken zeer ervaren reizigers die fantastisch kunnen putten uit eigen ervaringen bij het oriënteren, plannen en beschrijven van hun reis voor de reisbeurs van donderdag 29 september a.s. . De leerlingen werken deze week verder aan hun reisprogramma: een beschrijving van dag-tot-dag incl. details over slaapplekken, kosten, vluchten, etc.

Deze week ronden we alles af, zodat we ons kunnen richten op de kraam voor de reisbeurs. Leerlingen mogen de kraam naar eigen inzicht indelen. Denk daarbij niet alleen aan visueel materiaal, maar vooral ook aan de andere zintuigen (lekkere hapjes, muziek uit het land...). Wellicht kunnen de ouders hier een handje bij helpen.

Cette semaine, nous allons faire de la compréhension écrite avec le texte “Pourquoi les gommes n’ont-elles pas de pattes?”. Nous travaillerons sur le son “O”. Ensuite nous travaillerons sur l’apprentissage des mots: mots/ syllabes/lettres.
Pour les devoirs, les élèves  vont faire deux exercices pour renforcer leur orthographe des mots avec le son “o”.

Year  3/ 4 Native German:  Ms Brannasch

Im Deutschunterricht diese Woche haben wir die Klassenregeln besprochen und einige selber kreiert! Anhand eines Textes haben wir dann geübt, laut und mit Ausdruck vorzulesen, die Fragen zu beantworten, die Hilfswörter im Text zu erkennen und eigene Fragen zu schreiben.
Nächste Woche wird die Textarbeit ebenfalls unser Fokus sein, vor allem die Fragen schriftlich beantworten zu können.
Zu Hause können die Kinder das bereits üben, nämlich die Fragen zum Bild zu beantworten. Die genauen Angaben zur Hausaufgabe haben die Kinder in ihren Heften.

Year  3/ 4 Native Spanish:  Ms Garcia

La semana que viene vamos a trabajar las habitaciones y objetos de la casa. No hay deberes para el puente.
