Parents and carers,

Due to school closure we are providing a range of learning resources for children to access at home.  It would be useful if your child could spend some time each day on English, Maths and Reading whilst also remaining active. 

Teachers will be uploading links and resources regularly so please continue to check the class page each Monday. 

We hope that you managed to complete some of the activities last week.  Below is a new set of challenges for this week...

With very best wishes,
The Year 4 Team.

Rainbow Gate

We have started decorating hearts and adding a positive message which will then be attached to the gate in the shape of a rainbow. On the gate we have attached a wallet full of different coloured hearts for you to decorate, write messages on and cut out. For those of you that are unable to pick one up from school, we have attached a document with the templates on for you to print at home. This will also be on the class pages on the website. All completed hearts can either be left in the finished wallet on the gate (for those of you out on your daily walk!) or scanned and emailed to the admin address so that we can print them. We will then laminate them and tie them to the gate. 

We will keep you updated on twitter as to the progress we are making.

Thank you.

Take care and stay safe.

The Wood End Team.

Reading - remember to read 5 x each week and record your reading in your Reading Record book

We do expect children to read regularly at home for 10 mins a day as this has a big impact on their learning.  Other  homework set is there to support and consolidate work in school.  We do not expect work at home to take longer than the maximum time given.  We understand that on occasion e.g. the family going away for the weekend that homework may not be completed on time.

A Fairytale Christmas - 2019 Christmas Production for Years 4 and 5

As the children from Wood End School head off for their annual trip to the pantomime at the St Albans Arena, where this year they are performing Goldilocks and the Three Bears, they chatter excitedly. Many of the children reminisce about last years production of Jack and the Beanstalk and what good fun that had been. 

Year 4 Visit to Buckinghamshire Railway Museum - Wednesday 23rd October 2019

The Year 4's had a lovely day today visiting the Buckinghamshire Railway Museum as part of our Local Study History topic.  We enjoyed a journey on a real steam train, as well as a ride on the miniature railway and a visit to the train museum.  Thank you to our parent helpers.
