Thank you to all the parents who came listen to all the poems presented live by the different classes.
As part of our geography topic, Year 4 went on a local walk to look for litter today. We didn't have far to go. The majority of litter was found on Balmoral Road and was plastic. We will be considering what we can do to tackle the issue of plastic waste over the next few weeks.
Mrs Beveridge and Mrs Dickinson have been impressed with Year 4's ability to use column addition and apply it to problem-solving and reasoning questions like those shown above.
Well done, Year Four!
Year 4 enjoyed some late summer sunshine while practising throwing and catching for netball - let's hope we have some more sunny PE lessons like this!
