Welcome to Class 4CW
Our teachers are Mrs Webb and Mrs Corstin and our teaching assistant is Mrs Riding.
First Week Back- Show and Tell!
On Friday 7th September, we are having a show and tell session to get to know each other better. Please bring in something special to share with your class. This could be a photograph, toy, card, teddy bear, book etc. Try to choose something that has a special meaning to you and practise what you are going to say about your item. Don't worry if you can't find anything to bring in- think of a special person or time in your life and you can talk about that instead!
This term we will be looking at riddles, dilemma stories and persuasive advertisements. Also, in the lead up to Christmas, we will be doing some exciting work based upon a short Christmas film called, 'The Bear and the Hare'.
In addition to our English lessons, we will be doing lots of grammar, handwriting and spelling. Weekly spellings will be given out each Monday to be tested on Friday.

Design and Technology Week
This week we have been looking at healthy snacks. We have discussed what is already on the market and participated in food tasting to find out what we enjoy in 4CW.
We all tried something new, from honey to raspberries.
Following our research we decided what we would like to include in a healthy granola bar.
Please find the ingredients list below as I’m sure the children would love to have another go at home.
Brown sugar and butter
We worked on our peeling and grating skills and especially enjoyed getting messy grating the chocolate.

Home or Away?
For our first topic, we will study and compare three places: one local, one European and one American. We will look at both the physical and human geographical features focusing upon how water has impacted upon the area.
The River Mersey will be an important focus of this topic and we will be planning our first trip very soon- watch this space!
Our residential visit to Condover Hall will take place from the 25th February to the 28th February 2019. Letters were given out at the end of Year Three so if you haven't already returned your permission slip, please get it in as soon as possible. If you need any more information, please see one of the Year Four teachers.
