Homework 7th September 2018

Learning Log

 

Your homework this week is linked to our new Come and See topic 'People' where we will be learning all about Jesus' family tree. We would like you to create your own family tree for us to have a look at in class. You can make a classic family tree or if you're feeling creative and would like to add photos or pictures of your relatives that would be great. Homework is due as usual on Wednesday 12th September. We look forward to seeing your lovely family trees. 

 

Tuesday 11th September - Spectacular Stuarts Day

 - On this day we will be celebrating our new context "Fame Fire and Fortune" based on the historical Stuart period in Wales.  Children are invited to dress in historical costume or complete a character profile on Colonel Edward Pritchard, the Master at Llancaiach Fawr Manor House, Nelson, South Wales during the Stuart period.

 

Thursday 13th September - Dahlicious Day 2018

Come to school dressed as your favourite Roald Dahl character.

 

PARENTS - Please bear in mind that all Year 4 children will also be walking to Pentwyn Leisure Centre, and changing swiftly for their swimming lessons every afternoon for the next 2 weeks (Mon 10th- Fri 24th Sept).  I am sure many children will have fantastic costumes, but when swimming on those days clothing will still need to fit inside a locker (£1) and be comfortable to walk in.

 

Y4D - 1.30pm-2.15pm

Y4A - 2.15pm - 3.00pm

 

If parents wish to attend, the Leisure centre has a cafeteria/viewing area where parents may meet the class for their lesson.  Children must return to school with their class to be collected at 3.30pm.
