It has been an extremely successful week for all members of 4C. I have thoroughly enjoyed the first week back as it's been wonderful to meet my new class and get to know everyone a little better. I am really impressed by how well they have settled into daily routines and the new expectations in Year 4. This week the children have learned a lot about goal setting, the importance of teamwork and having resilience as there are many challenges and opportunities for learning ahead!
All children have received a new reading book and journal this week. It is so important that the children read at least three times a week as it has such a massive impact on their rate of learning.
This term the children will be learning about the Roman Empire and its impact on Britain. Their key task is to make a moving chariot which will be extremely exciting! In science the children will learn about eating and digestion with Mrs Hughes.
A reminder that the children have PE on a Thursday afternoon.
I am delighted to announce that this years school councillors in 4C will be Ethan and Tamzin. I am sure that both of them will represent our class brilliantly at all meetings.
Ethan and Tamzin will represent their class and their job is to improve the school and make sure it is a safe and happy place.
I asked the children what they would like to achieve as councillors.
Ethan said, "I want to make the school and the community a better place."
Tamzin said, "I want to make people happier in the school."
The class voted for two members of the class to be Eco-rangers. Their job is to ensure that the school and the school grounds are a clean and tidy environment; this will involve picking up litter and ensuring that we recycle as much as we can at Shotton Primary. They are also tasked with making sure that we save as much energy as possible, so they will have to turn lights off when no-one is in a classroom. 4C's Eco-Rangers are Gurman and Grace. I know that they will do a great job!
