Friend or Foe
In Summer, our excitement cannot be contained as we head off to PGL! We are in for a week of fun completing numerous outdoor activities and developing our team work skills at Windmill Hill. In English, we will be reading Charlotte’s Web and investigating the writing style of newspaper reports. Our school’s Book week will also be in Summer 1 where we will spend a week immersed in The True Story of the Three Little Pig. We will attend a drama workshop to creatively retell the story and look at the story through the eyes of a different character.
This week we have been looking at the features of a newspaper report and writing our own articles on fairy tales whilst applying our knowledge of headlines, orientation, main body and reorientation.
This week, we have continued to look at decimal numbers. We have used our knowledge to solve reasoning tasks and explain each step we took and why using the correct mathematical vocabulary.
Pack for PGL!!!
Children to come to school in their own clothes on Tuesday morning.
If you wish to provide your child with a snack, please ensure that it is a fruit or vegetable as we are a healthy school and would like to promote this.
We will have P.E. lessons on a Monday and either a Thursday(4H) or Friday(4T) so please make sure you have the correct clothing (labelled) in school on these days.
Please can you make sure your child has a fully labelled PE kit including: socks, PE jumper and well-fitted plimsolls. Please speak to the teacher if you have any issues with this. PE kits should be in line with the school's policy and therefore no football kits are allowed to be worn during PE lessons.
Please keep your Reading Records up to date. You need to make a note of the book and pages that you have read and get this counter-signed by an adult at least three times a week. We will be checking the diaries every Monday and we would like to see 4 or 5 entries per week. Children can of course read their own books from home, as well as school library books.

The Daily Mile
It is now a requirement for children to have an extra 20 minutes of exercise a day in addition to playtimes and PE. Therefore, the whole school will be engaging in the The Daily Mile. Year 4 will be doing this straight after lunch.
The aim of The Daily Mile is to improve the physical, emotional and social health and wellbeing of our children – regardless of age or personal circumstances.
