The end of the first half term is now upon us, and I am so incredibly proud of Eastgate for all of their hard work during the term!

This week, in maths, the children have been implementing their division skills within practical word problems. They have also been applying all the skills they have learnt over the past 8 weeks to solve a variety of fluency, reasoning and problem solving mathematical questions.

The children have thoroughly enjoyed concluding their art unit with Miss Walker this week creating an Andy Warhol named background and finalising their Andy Warhol style cubes! Everything looks fantastic, and is forming part of our exhibition display for next half term!

Still in keeping with the art theme, the children have had lots of fun creating Christmas cards (yes Christmas cards!!), even though it is only still October! Without giving the whole design away (so it is still a surprise for you), they used wax candles, wax crayons, Brusho paint, Christmas props and the photo booth app on the apple computers to create their masterpieces! They are all wonderful, and incredibly unique to them. I am sure you will love them.

Finally, as you may be aware, since the beginning of the term the children have been earing their ‘marbles in a jar.’ They earn marbles in the jar for positive things they do as a whole class, such as super listening, quiet tidying away and being super workers etc. Well this week… WE FILLED THE JAR! So this meant movie and popcorn afternoon! Everyone was so excited. We had lots of fun popping popcorn in the microwave, before the children watched Hotel Transylvania.

It has been a lovely end to the half term, and I want to say thank you so much to you all, for all of your support and most importantly thank you to the children, for making my first half term at St Martin’s so enjoyable!

We hope you all have lots of Halloween fun and the best half term.

See you on the 6th November!

The Year 4 Team.
