Year 4

Week Beginning 23rd January 2023

Yesterday, we walked to Southbourne Library to carry out some research about plastic pollution. We used a variety of non- fiction texts to find the answers to our research questions which will help us to write our newspaper reports about climate change.  Thank you so much to our wonderful parents/ grandparents for helping us on this trip- we really appreciated your support!

Well done to Victoria Class who had their first swimming lesson this week, Mrs Finnigan said you were ALL fantastic!

Please can we remind children in Year 4 not to bring mobile phones into school and to also follow our uniform policy regarding P.E. kit as we are seeing more and more children wearing branded jumpers and joggers. Please refer to the uniform policy on the website if you need further guidance.

We need your help! If you are able to bring any rocks or pebbles into school to decorate then please could you bring these in next week as we will be using them in one of our art lessons. Also, the children are very excited to carry out a litter pick around school as part of our ‘ Climate Matters’ project. If you have any litter pickers at home, please could these be brought in on Monday 6th February.
