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. 

Homework - Max 20 mins per subject   

Welcome back!  We hope you all had a lovely Christmas break and are back, refreshed ready for the Spring Term. 

English due Wednesday 29th January:

We will be starting our English unit using the book, 'The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane,' by Kate DiCamillo.  This is a story about a china rabbit who goes on a journey, ending up with a variety of different owners.  The children will be writing their own descriptions of a toy from home so we would like them to bring in a toy which could think and behave like a human.  This could be: a teddy, another sort of cuddly toy, a superhero/action figure, a doll...  Nothing too large or too precious please!  This must be brought in on WEDNESDAY 29TH.  If your child would prefer to bring in a photo or picture of a toy, that is fine.   

Geography due Wednesday 29th January:

Have a go at the attached sheet - find out which countries in Europe use the Euro.

Maths - due Wednesday 22nd January

Complete section A/B or C - Data (graphs).



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.
