As you will know from our Year Group Assembly this year Year Four will be working as ambassadors for the Christian Value "Compassion". Year Four spent the Autumn term teaching the rest of the school what it means to be compassionate. We were impressed with how thoughtful, kind and caring the pupils were and how well they look after ALL the children (and staff) around them. They are a credit to their families. Throughout the year we will be exploring the other values adopted by Sherrier pupils but we will be focusing on what it means to be a compassionate in class, on the playground and at home. If your child impresses you with how they compassionate they are at home do share this with us by making a note in their Boomerang book so that we can celebrate it in class.
Please read the lyrics that the children wrote along with Phil Moore, Assistant Minister at Lutterworth Church, about what compassion means to them at Sherrier School.
A class prayer
Jesus, thank you for the way you show compassion to other people. Thank you for the way you help us when we’re in trouble. Please help us to put ourselves in other people’s shoes today and feel what it’s like to be them.

During the first half of our Summer term Year 4 are going to be creating Play scripts based upon the famous William Shakespeare play 'A Midsummer Night's Dream.' The children will be asked to rewrite this tale in their own words and create a drama performance within a group. They will learn the format of script writing, character details and stage directions.
In the Summer term our Maths focus is on Shape, Space and Data Handling. We will be developing our skills of shape in finding a line of symmetry and identify angles. After this we will be learning all about how to position co-ordinates in a 2D grid, plotting points to create a shape and translating shapes across a grid. We will also be collecting, presenting and interpreting data in different forms.
We are so impressed with how Year 4 are progressing with their X Factor Maths Challenges. As always please continue practicing your fantastic times table knowledge at home so we can continue progressing through the rounds.
Year 4 are going to become potion makers this half term, looking at the history of medicines and how herbal remedies are still used today. We will focus on hazardous substances and how to read warning labels on packages.
