This week we have started our new topic of Special Places, with a focus on art and RE. Specifically, these subjects will help us to explore collage and Sikhism.
If you would like to do any homework over the remaining weeks then here are some ideas to help your learning:
- Reading every night for at least 10 minutes to help develop confidence and fluency.
- Times table facts for 3s, 4s, 8s and 11s (In school, we are focussing on our 8s at the moment, particularly 8 x 6, 8 x 7 and 8 x 8).
- Add and subtract 9, 19 and 29 to numbers close to boundaries. For example, 504 – 19 (- 20, + 1) or 397 + 9 (+ 10, - 1).
- Research Sikhism by picking a book at the library to get a head start on our RE learning.

Hello Yellow Class families,
What a lovely week we have had! Well done Yellow Class for a great start to the year and for settling into your new classroom so quickly. We started our exciting 'World at War' project and will be learning about the part Blackwell played in World War 1. The children produced some lovely art work that will be available to view on our opening evening.
Our newsletter and homework will be ready to view early next week so please remember to read at home and practise times tables. Forest school will be Tuesday for group 6, Wednesday for group 7 and Thursday for group 8 whilst Sport club will be Thursday for group 6 and 7 and Friday for group 8.
Have a super weekend, I can't wait to see you all again on Monday.
Hello Yellow Class!
Can you believe that we have started our final topic? What a brilliant year we have had!
Our Summer Fair is fast approaching.Please could you bring in an empty glass jar to put our produce into. These need to be in school by Monday 8th July.
For your homework over the coming weeks, it would be great if you could find out about where some of our different food comes from. Look at your packages at home and find out how far your food has travelled!
You might want to keep a food diary for the day. You could also use Google Earth to see where the place is. It would be interesting to see if anything has come from England or other countries in the UK.
You can also keep practising your times tables… Knowing your 3s, 4s, 8s and 11s inside outside out for Year 4 will be really useful.
Make sure you all have your water bottles with you every day, it is really important now the weather is getting warmer.

Hello Yellow Class,
We have been able to learn so much about pirates so far and I am really looking forward to Thursday. Our first assembly rehearsal today was great. I’m really impressed by how much information you have remembered, well done!
As the children have the opportunity to dress up as pirates on Friday, feel free to bring these costumes in on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday for the family assembly. This is optional, so please do not feel pressured in to buying anything last minute.

Hello Yellow Class,
As it is World Book Day tomorrow (Thursday 7th March), it would be great if you could bring in your favourite book to share with the class. You will need to be able to explain a little bit about the book and what makes it your favourite. I will bring in some of my favourite books to share too.
