What a lovely year we have had with you all!! Thank you for your hard work, positivity, kindness to each other and to the grown ups. We will miss you all so much.
Keep trying hard in Year 5 and in your life. Each of you are very special and can achieve great things if you put your mind to it. Never give up.

Buddhism. Today we have been asking the Big Questions and getting very spiritual. Why can't animals talk? Who made God? Why don't people have purple eyes? How big is Heaven? What happens after we die? What is my purpose? Why have I got 2 eyes and 1 nose and not 2 noses and 1 eye?!?! Then we made a clay tile of Buddha's image.
Happy 90th Birthday Ma'am. Today, to celebrate the Queen's official birthday, we had a picnic lunch on the grass.
Congrats to our A and B Mini Tennis teams who won their Borough final and our going to Crystal Palace to represent Waltham Forest at the London Youth Games on Thursday 30th June.
Welcome back to our last half term together in year 4 😬
Tuesday 24th May will be our last swimming session in Year 4. Swimming will resume again in Year 5.
3D Shapes! We cut out the net of a shape, decorated it and then made it by gluing the tabs together. They are now hanging beautifully in our class.
OM, Shanti, Om. Nathan and Emily showed us their best Bollywood dancing. Next week will be our last session so IF YOU WANT TO dress for Showtime, bring in a scarf or something shiny (OPTIONAL!), feel free ;-)
WE wrote some letters to companies asking for donations for the Summer Fair. Sara's letter was successful!
Advert Drama! From Peaman to Carrot Girl! We created and performed adverts to encourage children to eat well.
Spotting people working hard
Bollywood Dance star!
Use an embedded clause. Watch this funny Youtube clip to help you.... www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3dMZyISiWg
PE this half term: swimming for one hour and walk to and from pool. Our other session is Bollywood Dance. For this we DO NOT change into PE kits so expect them to come back unworn at half term....
Swimming and Healthy snacks
Please remember that your snack after swimming must be a healthy choice. Popcorn, crisps, sweets, biscuits etc are not allowed!!! Snacls that you bring in are for yourself - we do not share food due to allergies.
Our school will be taking part in the national fitness initiative 'The Daily Mile'. Each day, come rain or shine, we will be going outside at some point during the day to run/jog/walk for a mile. This is in addition to our 2 hours of PE and daily 5 minutes of exercise '5 a day'. No specialist clothing or footwear is necessary although if you want to bring in your trainers each day to change into you may (as long as it can be done quickly!). It's quick, it's fun and goes towards your daily 10,000 steps goal. One mile roughly equates to 2,000 of those steps. Are you doing 5 miles or 10,000 steps a day? What could you do to 'up' your steps? Walk to school, take the stairs not the lift or escalator, walk to the shops or your friend's house.... Every bit of exercise counts towards being a fit, healthy and happy person. Exercise = happiness!!!

Our LSA - Mrs Mohamoodally (Mrs M)
Mr Winspear helps in class most days. He is very kind and patient and is brilliant at football. We are very grateful for his help.
Yesterday year 4 went to the Barbican and enjoyed listening to the LSO. (By Isabel)
Friday is SPaG day!

On Monday the 22nd February it was World Thinking Day and all the cubs and brownies came to school wearing their uniforms. By Rory
Hidden Squares - Maths coordinates investigation Friday 15th January. Following our learning about coordinates last week, today we did an investigation to find the 8 hidden squares in the grid and had to write down the coordinates of the corners of each square. The first person to find all 8 squares, and who had written out the coordinates correctly, had to shout out 'Hidden Squares' to win a prize. The winners were Nathan and Luke. Well done boys.
Spelling and Grammar is tricky!! Today we have been thinking about verbs and their past tense. Did you know choose becomes chose in the past tense? shrunk becomes shrank? build becomes built? There are some really naughty ones such as go which becomes went and did you know that if the verb ends in a 'y', you need to swap the 'y' to an 'i'. Furthermore, to change knit to its past tense, you have to double the 't' before adding 'ed'!
PE - Position, Aim, Throw! Have a look at some photos from the first lesson in our new Games topic for this half term. Thanks to Jaime for the photos!!
In Literacy on Fridays, we have our SPAG lesson. Today we have been learning about how to use the possessive apostrophe to show that something belongs to someone or something.
e.g The ball belongs to Jack so it is Jack's ball.
Here's a game to play to practise at home:
Maths - Perimeter.
Today in Maths we have been learning how to calculate the perimeter of 2d shapes. Here is a game to play at home - challenge yourself through the levels!
