Burps, Bottoms and Bile!
Open wide - let's take a look inside! We're on a voyage of discovery to investigate the busy world inside us. Do you have a toothy grin or a winning smile? Take dental impressions and test the effects of sugary substances on your pearly whites. Follow a tasty morsel as it makes its way through your digestive system, helped by some mouth-watering saliva. Mmmmmm! And don't forget the importance of good hygiene- at both ends. Do beans really wind power? Let's work scientifically and bottom this one out, once and for all. This is a fascinating topic which children will love!

PE and Games
Year 4 pupils must wear a change of clothing for PE and games activities. A navy T-shirt and navy blue shorts are required and trainers or similar footwear. Navy t-shirts may be purchased from YC Sports. Children will not be allowed to participate without suitable clothing.
Days for PE:
Every Tuesday and Thursday.
During colder weather, tracksuits or other warm clothing may be worn. Boys will require football boots, as will any girls participating in football or rugby activities after school.
Every week we will endeavour to give your children a spelling list and Maths problem solving homework.
Some children may find the maths challenging, so please could parents ensure they sit down and help their child with it. This needs to be returned by the following Wednesday.
Your child can continue to develop their maths skills taught each week, by accessing their own 'Maths world' at Active Learn. Each child has been given a username and password. The school code is qlq7.
Spellings need to be practised daily for a test every Friday. The spellings will be differentiated and uploaded to the website as well as a paper copy.
We shall also be encouraging children to visit Corbett maths to complete their ‘5 a day’ https://corbettmaths.com/5-a-day/
