We have been really impressed with the Plant projects that were handed in on Friday. The ongoing effort with your home learning is fantastic and I know that those of you with home learning packs, will also be trying hard at home.

We are really impressed with your continued effort with your Home Learning. This term, we will be looking at Teeth and Digestion in our Topic learning and you will have already started some projects about this at home.
The children that have been in school this week have created posters and animals masks whilst learning about teeth (see the pictures below).
The children at school have been creating board games linked to teeth and beginning to learn about the rest of the digestive system. We can't wait to see what you have got up to at home when you send in your completed projects on Friday!
This week, we should have been going on our Year 4 Residential to Hill End. Instead, many of you have been taking part in our Hill End daily challenges and have been enjoying listening to members of staff talk about their best bits of Hill End.
Take a look at the pictures below of you achieving these challenges. Keep up the good work and I will be adding some more pictures throughout the week.
