The words seem to be getting harder yet we're only revising Year 4 words!
This week we are celebrating...
Jake and Molly for achieving their English targets,
Adam C for achieving pen status,
Rylan, Adam R, Hendy, Bailey, Aaron, Darcy, Jake, Adam P and Callum for being spelling stars,
Caitlin and Shannon, for helping other children at swimming and achieving a jigsaw weekly celebration,
and Neal for having his work displayed on the Wonderful Work display.
On Thursday it was World Poetry and we all wrote poems, a special mention to Darcy for standing at the front of assembly and reciting her poem from heart.
Please could you help your child improve their reading accuracy and comprehension skills by ensuring they bring their reading diary to school every day. Each comment from home earns a sticker for your child's reward card. The children are expected to achieve 5 stickers every week.
Thank you, Mrs B.
Well done to the following children:
As well as subtraction word problems, we are investigating angles.
Play Banana Hunt online to improve your angle estimating skills.
Sing along to Dave Godfrey's Angle Detective to name the different types of angle.
Homework: Mrs Bassnett was on a course on Monday to learn about mastery in the new curriculum! This meant she couldn't teach the SPAG lesson on Monday linked to this week's homework and had to wait until Tuesday. So the children have until next Monday to complete their English and Maths homework.
Pen status: Congratulations to Molly, Bailey, Caitlin, Lacey and Coby who have achieved pen status this week. How many more neat handwriting stickers do you need to get?
Wonderful Work: It was the first Wonderful Work display in the entrance hall this week. Congratulations to Bailey for writing a superb resolution and ending to his fairy tale!
Spelling Stars: This week's spelling stars are: Jake, Adam P, Henderson, Rylan and Darcy.
Jigsaw: Each week, throughout school, we celebrate something new. This week we have been looking for people who make their way onto the Jigsaw poster in class. Last week we thanked Esther, Lacey and Jake for making Michaela feel so welcome at our school. This week we congratulated Cameron L and Bailey E for trying to make our community a better place! Next week we will be looking for children who think about everyone's right to learn!
Congratulations to Hendy for being the first person to collect three neat handwriting stickers and earn handwriting pen status! Esther and Darcy also earned pen status this week. Who will be next?
Hendy's had a great week - he also went up in assembly to explain his mathematical reasoning and use of mathematical vocabulary. His task was: CONVINCE ME! Which is largest, 7 356 427 ÷ 1 000 or 9 725.42 x 100? After school, Mrs Chadwick told Mrs Bassnett that she was very impressed - well done Hendy!

Blackburn Youth Zone after school club:
Lots of children attended the first session on Tuesday. Activities on offer included scaling the climbing wall (shorts or trackies and preferably trainers or pumps needed for this), spray painting, using the gym, poolball, table tennis, football on the kick pitch, playing on x-boxes, hockey and basketball in the sports hall, dancing in the dance studio, composing music in the music studio, craft activities, snooker...... and even more!
