Welcome back from Easter break!
We are now in our third and final term. Our first two terms seemed to have passed us by in the blink of an eye, but that is because it is true what they say, 'time flies when you are having fun' and that is what we work towards, our learning being FUN!
Expectations continue to be extremely high as children are now approaching their final weeks of Year 4 in preparation for Year 5.
This term I will really be encouraging and supporting those children who are still struggling with their times tables to 12 and I ask that you please assist them at home as well.
We have also introduced a new handwriting scheme called Letter Join. Children should be using this form of joined handwriting in ALL writing tasks both at school and home.
Thank you for your continued support, together we are the team that assists your child in doing their very best learning.
My name is Miss. Belmonte and I am the Year 4 teacher. This is my third academic year at Our Lady of Lourdes. Working alongside me is our Teaching Assistant, Ms. Marin and Mrs. Husbands, who provides one-to-one support. As a team we are all focused on, and dedicated to your child's academic progression and success!
As our school mission statement says, we work to the best of our ability and our learning should be fun. That is the plan for this year so please check back regularly for updates on classroom events, successes, activities, website links and pictures.

WALK TO SCHOOL WEEK: these children started the week off on the right two feet :) ... If you normally take the bus, get off 2 stops early and walk, if you normally drive, park and walk part of the way, if you normally scoot or cycle, stop halfway and walk the rest, lets earn those points - it's competition time!!!

LITERACY: this past Friday, children had the opportunity to consolidate all of the learning they have be participating in with Roman Britain and put it into letter format. It was quite the intense writing session as all children had PLENTY to say! Be sure to ask your child about their letter, and about what they have learnt!

NUMERACY: Children took their measuring skills from the last lesson and extended them into measuring with metre sticks. We also ventured outside of the classroom to investigate the length and width of some playground equipment. Be sure to ask your child how accurate their estimates were to their actual measurements!

Over the past few days Year 4 has been working on becoming 'International Entrepreneurs' in preparation for OLOL's International Festival evening. We have received a £10 loan from the school and accepted the challenge to make a product to sell on Thursday evening that will allow us to repay our £10 loan and also raise funds through profit for the PTA. We have been working very hard to prepare for this event and hope to see you there!
