Thank you to all the parents who attended the 'Welcome to Our Class' meeting for 4SS on Friday.
The children were very excited to share their learning and classroom environment with you all and we really appreciate the feedback we received.
Some parents requested the times tables display that we had on our Maths wall be uploaded onto our page- this has now been done.
(PLEASE LOOK ON THE YEAR 4 CLASS INFORMATION PAGE FOR A COPY OF THE TIMES TABLES).
Just a quick reminder that 4SA's 'Welcome to Our Class' meeting will take place this Friday 2nd October 2015. We look forward to seeing lots of parents there!

Clips from our Year 4 African Adventure entry point day (Apologies for the videos being rotated the other way!)
On Monday Year 4 had their entry point morning. Children wore African themed clothing for the day and everyone came dressed in colourful animal print clothes.
Our African Adventure began when we Skype called a seabird sanctuary (SANCCOB) in Cape Town, South Africa. The children got to meet a conservationist alongside an African penguin named Stubby, They had the opportunity to learn about African penguins and ask questions about Stubby. Stubby taught the year 4 children valuble life lessons on how to be resilient and overcome situations such as bullying.
Throughout the day, the children also completed craft activities and created their very own African masks and savannah silhouette paintings. Children learnt that African masks are an important part of the African culture and are used in many different ceremonies and festivals in different regions.
In the afternoon, both year 4 classes came together to participate in a very special Swahili lesson taught by year 3/4 students in Cheery Education Centre in Nairobi, Kenya. This was another Skype session where children were able to discover more about life in Africa. They had the opportunity to ask questions and talk to the children in Africa telling them more about themselves.
Everyone in year 4 had a brilliant day, they enjoyed the experience of interacting with people in Africa and as a result are eager to learn more. After our call to SANCCOB we are hoping to adopt a penguin in each year 4 class to help save these endangered African penguins.
