As part of rights and diversity week, Years 3 and 4 looked at Article 14 from the UN Convention Rights of the Child – Children have the right to think and believe what they want and to practice their religion, as long as they are not stopping other people from enjoying their rights.

To explore this right, we were joined by speakers from different faiths; Reverend Kate (a Christian), Mr. Yusuf (a Muslim) and Mr. Singh (a Sikh). It was really interesting to listen to how they celebrated their religions and to pick out the similarities and differences between them. We used the information that they shared with us to write some reports and we also carried out a questionnaire and created graphs to show the different faiths around the school. We have learnt that there are many different religions and that we should all respect each other’s beliefs, and never force what we believe upon others.

This half term we are upping our stamina! We are taking part in circuit training in our indoor PE class. There are different stations we have to complete in a given time. These stations include; planking, bench hops, runs, star jumps and sit ups. Each week we hope to do that one more! Please encourage your child if they want to ‘plank’ at home!

A mysterious, huge, golden egg was found in Y4! There was a note with it asking Y4 to look after it by reading to it daily. Of course Y4 have been reading as much as they can to the egg. There were also 27 individual eggs with each child’s name on. We drew pictures on our eggs to predict what was inside the egg.Then we came in on Monday 14th and the egg had hatched, inside was a blue dragon named Brian! Further updates on Brian will be given.

Y4 have been working with negative numbers. We decided to order ourselves largest to smallest. Ask your child which is the largest negative number, they are fabulous at this now!
