Year 4 have adopted a Giant Panda.
For Christmas we adopted a Giant Panda through the WWF. We are looking forward to receiving our cuddly toy and lots of interesting facts and information packs about this incredible endangered animal. We will be voting on a name for our Panda in the new year and we are all excited about learning more and feel great knowing that we are helping such a beautiful animal to survive in their natural environment.

Your child should be reading as much as possible at home. If they can read for at least 10 minutes every evening and once over the weekend it will really help improve their reading. Certificates will be awarded when they reach the milestones for number of nights read.
A huge thank you to all the parents who attended our recent Anglo Saxon art morning. It was a great success and the children loved creating the miniature houses, pendants, shields and masks.
Our topic this term is:
Anglo Saxons and Magic.
We have been learning lots of magic tricks and exploring the wonderful world of Harry Potter through various props and displays around the classroom. We also have Hogwarts themed houses, where the children can earn pebbles for their house for a treat at the end of the Christmas term. The children loved using the sorting hat to find out which house they would be part of.
In our history topic we have been learning about Anglo Saxon villages, buildings and the food and drink that they would have eaten. We have recently enjoyed tasting some food and investigating how they built their houses. As part of design and technology, we have also built mini versions of an Anglo Saxon home for our display.
