I am so pleased with the attitude to learning that Year 4 have returned with after our Christmas break. They have worked tremendously hard on both days and been an absolute pleasure to teach.
Today’s writing is a secret, however I can tell you it ended with a little walk this afternoon to the post box.
There is some Sumdog work for the children to complete this weekend on their Chrome books.
Swimming starts for a Year 4 on Tuesday. Please refer to your initial letter about what is needed.
The joint Carol service with North Elmham Primary School starts at 1.30pm.
If possible please try and share transport to the church.
ALL children will be transported back to All Saints on the buses, no one can be collected from North Elmham as we need to know the exact whereabouts of the children at all times. They will be taken to their classrooms and you will be able to collect them from their usual doors.
Please keep the layby totally clear as we will have at least 4 buses, possibly 5 in the layby when we return.
Many thanks for your co-operation.
Year 4 and the other KS2 classes are currently locked in battle with many schools from around the UK in a maths competition run by Sumdog.
In the Norfolk based competition, which ended yesterday, the school had three children in the top 50. Well done to Sophie in Year 3 who achieved 7th place with a whopping 972 correct answers out of 1000 questions! Big well done to Reuben and Megan in Year 4 who also were placed in the top 50.
As a class Year 4 succeeded in being placed 8th out of 98 qualifying classes for the Norfolk competition. In the U.K. Competition, which closes on December 20th the class are currently in 11th place out of over 3000 classes who have been entered from around the UK!! We are a little excited!
We always look forward to welcoming the Open The Book team into our school. Today they retold Joseph’s side of the story and how he was told by an angel that Mary was having a baby. The team were really impressed that the children could join in with some of the singing of the carols they had incorporated into their story.
A Big Thank you to the Open The Book, you really do make a difference to the children’s learning of the bible stories. We are already looking forward to next terms offerings.
Year 4 have been interviewing Mrs Cooke. They prepared questions to ask her and then spent a lovely hour asking her the questions and listening to the stories she had to tell about her 20 years. The children loved it and are now writing up their interviews, some of them we shall share on here soon.
