Year 4: Weekly update

This week

We have had a lovely final week of the half term. The pupils have absolutely amazed us with their fantastic maths skills, especially while doubling and halving three digit numbers. They have been very busy painting pictures of Llandudno based on art work by Susie Grindey, these will be the entries for our Eisteddfod after half term.

Coming up after half term

When we return after half term we will be continuing with out topic Off With Her Head. We will finish our work on Henry VIII and  will begin to look at crime and punishment during the Tudor Period. In literacy we will be busy focussing on story writing. We will be planning and writing our own stories based on familiar ones, starting off with Alice in Wonderland. In science we will be investigating which materials are magnetic.

St David’s Day and World Book Day

Our first week back is a very busy one! On Wednesday 1st March we will hold our whole school Eisteddfod. Pupils are invited to dress up in traditional Welsh costume or they can wear a Welsh rugby/football shirt.

We will also be celebrating World Book Day on Friday 3rd March, we will be doing some activities to celebrate the day. Pupils are invited to dress up as their favourite book character for the day if they wish.


PE will only be on a Monday as swimming makes up our second PE session of the week. PE kits will need to be worn on Mondays and Thursdays. The only exception to this will be the week beginning 5th March. For this week only pupils will need to be  in their PE kits as usual on Monday 5th March. They will also need to wear them on Wednesday 8th March as Liam is coming in to do our final Real PE session. Kits will then be needed a third time for swimming on Thursday 9th March.


Homework for over half term is reading books. There is also a video of the poem that we will be reciting for St David’s Day. We have been busy learning this in school but it would be great if the pupils could continue to practise over half term. A copy of the words is also coming home today.


Have a wonderful half term break.

See you all in a week,

Mrs Williams, Mrs Hughes and Mrs Probin
