Years 3 & 4 Weekly Newsletters

Dear Parents/Carers                                                                                                      15th February 2019


Thank you all for your generous donations to ‘Pitch in a Pound’, raising much needed funds for the North Devon Hospice.  Once we have counted the coins we will put the total on our website.


This week in class, we have been looking at persuasion and have discovered how we can use this in different ways in English.  We have looked at shapes, angles and lines in maths.  We have all enjoyed our chocolate tasting sessions in class; perhaps the children can tell you which type of chocolate is their favourite. We can’t wait to do some more tasting during our visits to the Chocolate Emporium after half term.



The children have a reading comprehension linked to poetry to complete over the half term break.  They also have their weekly spellings to learn and should refresh their knowledge of timetables ready for the Friday tests.

World Book Day – Thursday, 7th March – Dress as your favourite book character
