“Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up.” Professor Stephen Hawking
Welcome to 4P
This week is very special indeed as not only is it the last week of term, but it is also Science Week!
Mr Webb, Mrs Joyce and I have many exciting questions for the children to answer and explore - including, but not limited to the following:
How can you design the ultimate paper aeroplane?
What food should you take with you on a trip to the arctic?
How do grasshoppers communicate?
What is a botanist?
How far can a marshmallow travel without being carried?
Where did Mr Poole leave the remote to the projector?
We will be using our well-honed maths skills to aid our science investigations and will also continue with our work on playscripts in English.
Also on Friday it is National Sports Relief Day, so bring in a donation for charity (suggested £1) and dress as your favourite sports star!
Finally, Sawley Juniors will also be hosting our annual Easter Cafe: copy and paste the link into your browser for more details - http://www.sawleyjunior.co.uk/news/detail/easter-cafe-2018/
Be there or be E = MC²!
Overall this term we will be continuing our topics of transport and plants in our learning challenge and science lessons respectively. In English we will complete our narrative poems and begin exploring the wonderful world of playscripts. In Maths we will be taking a deep dive into the wonderful world of fractions.
At home we will be continuing the excellent work we have been doing reading and completing handwriting and times-table practice; this should mean lots of stickers in children's planners and lots of children using their own pencil cases (if they have their diary signed by a parent four or more times in one week).
Finally, this term 4P will have their chance to do some cooking, so remember to bring a tub on Wednesday so that you can take the food you make home with you.
Let's make this term the most awesome one yet!

Our Golden Book Star this week is...
This week’s Golden Book star for 4P is Abigail B,
What is it that holds a class together? Is it the bricks? Is it the mortar? Is it the all the gel that the year 5 and 6 boys use in their hair? Well, in 4P our class works in large part because of the children who live the Sawley values day in and day out – they lead the way so that others have the space to learn and grow. When I try think of a child who always wants to learn, who tries her best and works well with everyone, it’s hard not to see Abigail’s cheeky, little face smiling back at me – often because she appeared at my desk with a good joke to tell! Whether the day’s learning journey is easy or challenging, I know that Abigail will always try hard to be the best ‘Abigail’ that she can be and we in 4P believe that this deserves to be celebrated – well done Abigail.
