This week we have started with an RE day all based around Judaism.
The children have learnt all about kosher foods, Jewish family life, the synagogue, some Jewish festivals and the Torah.
We have looked at the Torah and followed the rules of looking at the Torah by using the yad.
We created our very own scrolls and wrote out the 10 commandments, which the Jewish people believe God passed onto Moses.

Week 1- Maths
This week we have begun learning about place value in year 4 we have to learn numbers all the way up to 10,000 so we have been using a variety of different techniques to master this skill.
We have been using the number tokens to make numbers using the correct place value, and we have been partitioning numbers. We have started to move onto reading and writing numbers in words. This is quite tricky but we are all trying very hard! I am very impressed with the children's work so far!
You may have heard your child talking about peer massage, this is something that the whole school have adopted to promote the children's wellbeing and ensure that they are calm and relaxed and ready to learn each day.
The children are very good at it and are mastering their skills each day. We have had very positive feedback about it so far!
